The new courses will be an addition to the college’s existing engineering courses: BS Civil Engineering, BS Computer Engineering, BS Electrical Engineering, BS Electronics Engineering, and BS Mechanical Engineering.

Interested students are advised to wait for updates regarding the CDM Admission Test (CDMAT) schedules. Non-Muntinlupa residents can also apply in the engineering school.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi is inviting aspiring engineering and architecture students from Muntinlupa and nearby cities to enroll in the new programs offered by CDM.

CDM College Administrator Dr. Teresita Fortuna, who is the former Department of Science and Technology-National Capital Region director, said CDM provides top-notch education in science and technology from its faculty and integrated training with top-of-the-line industrial equipment.

Situated in Posadas Avenue in Barangay Sucat, CDM was founded in 2018 with five initial engineering courses.

CDM will hold its first commencement exercise this year for the first batch of graduates.

Through City Ordinance No. 2022-310, the city government offers scholarship and financial assistance to city residents who are students and alumni of CDM

These are Financial Assistance Grant for Academically Outstanding Students (FAGOS), CDM-Student Leaders Financial Assistance Program (CDM-SLFA) and Financial Assistance Program for CDM Board Licensure Examination Review (CDM-BLER).

Under the CDM-FAGOS category, students whose general weighted average meet the guidelines will receive a financial grant from P5,000 to P10,000.

For CDM-SLFA, all qualified members of the CDM-Supreme Student Council will be granted monetary assistance with respect to their position in the organization. While for CDM-BLER, students who have earned their degree from CDM may qualify for the program and be eligible for the funding of board licensure examination review.
