As RTU continues to prioritize excellence in education, initiatives like these underscore the institution’s commitment to providing the best practices. Through collaborative efforts and knowledge sharing, RTU endeavors to continually elevate the educational experience for its students and stakeholders.

During the visit, Mapúa generously shared their expertise and best practices, offering valuable perspectives on future research engagement and collaboration. This exchange not only enriches the knowledge of entities involved but also promotes cooperation and mutual growth within the academic community. Furthermore, the visit provided an opportunity for RTU officials to explore the facilities of Mapúa Malayan Colleges Laguna.
