The Summer Technician Orientation Program gives applicants of the Diploma in Engineering Technology Program (DipET) a foretaste of CITE education.
It is a free 3-day training program for aspiring students of CITE who wish to learn our culture (how classes are conducted, the day-to-day grind of CITE students) enabling them to appreciate our school dynamics.
There will be classes in Math, English, Basic Electricity, Benchwork, Physical Education, and Drafting to test the mental aptitude, physical endurance, and adaptability of the applicants to the pressure which is demanded by a technology-driven course.
Upon applying, students are requested to furnish the following requirements and documents to facilitate their entry to the program.

Within the three-day orientation program, an applicant will be interviewed to check his interest in the program and provide him insights on how choosing DipET program may lead to a better career in the future.
His parents and guardians will also be asked to make a personal appearance for an interview to check whether they can sustain the applicant’s needs and meet the financial rigors to finish the program.
A home visitation shall be conducted to validate the results from both interviews. A sample schedule is shown below:
