CIIT Unveils Top Capstone Projects During Sinagtala: Talas ng Sining with Hinabi

CIIT College of Arts and Technology’s multimedia program equips students with the technical skills they need to design, animate, and produce. But we don’t stop there. We nurture their creative spirit and empower them to become creators who make a difference and push the boundaries. 

This vision was featured during the recently concluded Art Week, an event orchestrated alongside CIIT’s art faculty. In the finale of “Sinagtala: Talas ng Sining with Hinabi,” we showcased the most outstanding capstone projects from the first term AY 2023-24. The goal was not merely to set a benchmark for other students but also to motivate them to rise to the challenge. We want them to create projects that go beyond academic requirements, focusing on purpose and positive impact.

Event Highlights

Ms. Erica Ngui, one of our distinguished Arts Instructors, led the event and presented the top capstone projects to attendees. She emphasized that all aspects of the students’ education, from their first year to their final year, are geared towards preparing them for their capstone projects.

The top capstone projects from the first term display a wide range of themes and media.

Our students’ capstones are a powerful testament to their continuous growth. From their first year, these fearless CIITzens pour their hearts into projects that aim to make a positive impact.
