DCS sponsors Y4IT 2021

The DCS is a sponsor of one of this year's biggest events in IT - the Youth Congress on Information Technology, or Y4IT. Other sponsors of the event include the UP System Information Technology Foundation (UPSITF) and the UP Information Technology Development Center (ITDC).

Established in 2003, Y4iT primarily targets individuals interested in discussions and networking opportunities in the IT industry, latest IT innovations, and exploring how to be competitive in the digital market. Y4iT has inspired thousands of students and educators alike from across the country, encouraging awareness and networking with like-minded IT professionals. Since its inception, Y4iT has gradually grown to become the leading IT congress in the Philippines.

The 19th Youth Congress on Information Technology is scheduled for October 12-14, 2021, and features speakers from the DICT, Asus, PayMaya, Oracle Academy, QBO Innovation Hub, among others. There will be two speakers from the Department: Professor Caro will deliver the opening remarks during the Congress' second day, while Assoc. Professor Tan will deliver a talk on research as a career path on the Congress' third day.
