THE TECHNOLOGICAL Institute of the Philippines made it to the Top 50 in its maiden participation in the 2023 World University Rankings for Innovation.

Two of the school’s projects were commended for their ethical value and relevance to the fourth industrial revolution.

TIP ranked 41st in the WURI ethical value category for its “Project Ilawa: Clean Energy That Cleans” while its “A Virtual Tour to Cultural and Heritage Space of Corregidor Island in GPS-Based Augmented Reality” ranked 44th in the fourth industrial revolution category.

“It is an honor for TIP to be recognized for the impact of its activities and programs that promote ethical values, as well as its innovative endeavors along the fourth industrial revolution,” TIP President Dr. Elizabeth Quirino-Lahoz said.

The entries went through a blind peer review process and were ranked based on their “innovativeness, implementability and impact.” Overall, TIP was in the WURI Global Top 200 Innovative Universities.

WURI evaluates the universities’ real contributions to society by highlighting their creative and innovative approaches to research and education, focusing on the following key issues: Industrial Application, Entrepreneurial Spirit, Ethical Value, Student Mobility and Openness, Crisis Management, and Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The 2023 WURI rankings were announced during the 3rd Annual Conference of the Hanseatic League of Universities hosted by the Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers, Florida, USA last May 17, 2023.
