Why Ateneo de Davao?
Ateneo de Davao is a leading university in Mindanao with a long history of education, research, community engagement, and formation. We were one of the first schools to offer computer education in Davao City and we proudly carry on this tradition with our continuing commitment to excellence.
Catholic, Jesuit, and Filipino
As a university it is a community engaged in excellent instruction and formation, robust research, and vibrant community service. As Catholic, it proceeds ex corde ecclesiae, from the heart of the Church. As Jesuit, it appropriates the mission of the Society of Jesus and the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola. As Filipino, it prepares students to benefit from, contribute to and engage the global world.
Research figures heavily in Ateneo de Davao’s Computer Studies programs. Our faculty and students carry out studies in artificial intelligence, data analytics, computer vision, software engineering, and others. We publish in journals and present in international conferences.
Technopreneurship complements for our academic and research programs. We guide our students to turn their projects into viable startups. Many of our graduates have gone on to establish their own technology companies with international partners and clients.
Creative space plays a central role in our teaching philosophy. We provide our students with facilities to pursue their intellectual passions — robotics, game development, mobile applications, film, music, animation, and graphic arts — and the guidance to integrate these into their program of study.
