Technological University of the Philippines-Taguig (Filipino: Teknolohikal na Unibersidad ng Pilipinas-Kampus ng Taguig) was established in 1977 as one of the three prototype technician institutes in the Philippines. On January 3, 1985, the BOR passed and adopted Resolution No. 100 s. 1985 changing the name of the Manila Technician Institute to TUP Taguig campus. This satellite campus is located at Km. 14 East Service Road, South Super Highway, Taguig, Metro Manila. At present, TUP Taguig offers programs in pre-baccalaureate, baccalaureate, and masters level.
