DOST-NCR is bringing Science and Technology closer to its Southern Metro Manila clients through its satellite office in Muntinlupa City.
The new office located at the Muntinlupa City Technical Institute (MCTI) will further assist Filipinos in the Muntinlupa, Taguig, Pateros, Paranaque, and Las Pinas (MUNTAPARLAS) areas. The blessing and launching of the satellite office was held last June 7, 2016 and was graced by the Hon. Jaime Fresnedi, Mayor of Muntinlupa City, and Dr. Teresita C. Fortuna, Regional Director of DOST-NCR.
The establishment of the satellite office at MCTI makes DOST’s services more accessible. Moreover, decentralizing the operation of DOST-NCR through its satellite offices will make a significant difference in the lives of Filipinos by empowering more communities through S&T.
