PUP Maragondon, Cavite Branch

Located in the heart of Maragondon, this branch was established by Dr. Nemesio E. Prudente and Hon. Teodorico C. Ramirez, Jr. Their main objective is to bring quality education in the countryside. PUP-MC is considered one of the longstanding campuses of the PUP systems. It offers quality education at an affordable cost to the low-income families of Cavite. The campus started with 5 baccalaureate courses (still 5 at present) 1 technical course (now two) and a post baccalaureate (Open University). Fourteen faculty members (now 40) manned the operation of its academic and non-academic pursuits. In terms of academic the students have performed as well as reflected in the array of victories in different intellectual battles. The graduates on the other hand have shown impressive performances in licensure examinations. The non-academic activities complement the academic in terms of sports, culture and the arts.

The campus is characterized by lush surroundings with serene atmosphere. Four buildings (A,B,C,& D) became the learning laboratories of the “Iskolars ng Bayan”. Some of these infrastructures were donated by the officials of the provincial and local government of Cavite. PUP-MC has strong linkages with the government and non-government organizations. It has been the partner of the municipality of Maragondon in so many programs and projects. The industries and the secondary schools seek for the services of PUP-Maragondon graduates not only for their skills but also for their exceptional work habits and attitudes. PUP-MC is and will always be the symbol of hope for an improved quality of life among the Caviteños.

Message from the Director


With great pride, I laud the establishment of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines - Maragondon Campus in our home province – Cavite. For years, it has served as the bastion of polytechnic courses, the refuge of the underprivileged but deserving students and the haven of the “Kabitenyong Iskolars ng Bayan”.

The towns folk of Maragondon and its neighboring towns – Naic, Ternate, Tanza, Magallanes, General Emilio Aguinaldo, Rosario, Trece Martirez City, General Trias, Amadeo, Alfonso, Noveleta and Kawit consider the existence of PUP-MC as a blessing, for their dream of a college diploma for their children turns into a reality. From then on, more and more Caviteños have flocked to the campus to enjoy the QUALITY EDUCATION it offers at an affordable cost. After four or five years, they join the roster of professionals in the province thereby improving the plights of their families and giving the work force of Cavite an impressive profile as well. This is evident in the synergy of PUP-MC with the municipality of Maragondon, the different industries and the secondary schools in making the province one of the most progressive in the region. It is now, one of the most industrialized provinces in the CALABARZON.

I, with the heads of offices, the faculty and the staff of our “Sintang Paaralan” – the PUP-MC will continue to pool all our efforts to guide the “Kabitenyong PUPians” achieve excellence in their chosen disciplines. Moreover, we will lead them to what Dr. Jose Rizal said, “Nasa kabataan ang pag-asa ng bayan.” We will never get tired of bringing PUP-MC into higher and wider dimensions knowing its patent power in eradicating illiteracy and poverty. As such, the PUP-MC will unceasingly reinvent itself to meet the demands of time.
