Britech College History
Britech history starts with the history of Interface Computer College.
Britechnologies Inc. was born out of the belief of the spouses Engr. Nick
Baguio and Dr. Mia Baguio on the future of IT in Cebu and the passion to
help students from average background to make it great in this industry.
When Interface in Manila decided to reorganize Interface Cebu, Engr.
Julius E. Romarate invited the spouses to join him in saving Interface. The
very first discussion was on April, 2006. From there it was unstoppable
until the corporation was formed to include Mr. Reynaldo Baguio and his
wife, Mrs. Regina Baguio. BRITECH is so named after its incorporators,
Baguio and Romarate who believes in the importance of IT education. Like
a phoenix rising from its ashes, Interface Cebu was reborn as Britech
Interface Computer College History
The brainchild of two idealistic partners, INTERFACE Computer College
primarily aims to reshaping the intellectual capacity and technology
awareness of students that will ultimately build a strong foundation and a
promising future for its graduates. INTERFACE, then known as Interface
Computer Learning Center, began its operation in 1982 at the Cartimar
Building along C.M. Recto Avenue in Manila. INTERFACE is in fact one of
the largest, private computer institutions of the Philippines and remains to
be non-franchise educational institution.
With the increasing demands for Information Technology of I.T.
professional, INTERFACE has expanded its horizon by opening branches
in Caloocan, Cebu, Iloilo and Davao bringing quality yet affordable
computer education nearer to the people. In 1994, INTERFACE became a
college thus offering computer-based degree courses aside from the shortterm
courses such as computer technician, computer secretarial, computer
software operations and computer programming. All courses offered by the
college are duly recognized and authorized by CHED and TESDA.
The BR stands for its two incorporators, Baguio and Romarate. The iTech symbolizes the apparent need to combine all types of technology to ensure quality education for all students. The globe signifies excellence, growth and expansion. The College aims to produce world class, extraordinary professionals equipped with the essential technical and life skills.
The first BriTech Flag was raised on mid-morning of November 10, 2010, a sunny Wednesday. This was during the Welcome Orientation for the 2nd Semester at the new campus in Angelica Bldg., Jones Avenue. The flag was represented to the student with a short parade and introduced by Faculty Coordinator, Ms. Rose Encabo who with the Dean Julius Romarate, drafted a definition. The flag raising was done by its President, Nicolas Baguio, Vice-President, Mia Baguio and College Dean, Julius Romarate. The student’s voices singing, “If We Hold on Together” rendered solemnity to the simple affair.
The name BRITECH College is spelled out in royal blue letters against a golden yellow background with an outsized globe dotting the letter “I”. The blue globe, is marked with a silhouette of people holding hands. It is distinguished by two swoosh on the left side of the globe with three rectangular dots towards the end of the swoosh. The Interface logo of green and white is clearly emphasized under Britech’s name. This is adopted from the official logo of Britech. White and yellow tassels surround the flag.
BRiTech is derived from BRight minds in the midst of Integrated Technologies and innovations. This is the driving force of the institution transforming learners to become extraordinary professionals. It also represents the people who restored Interface Computer College. B stands for Baguio and R stands for Romarate.
The green colored small letter “i” in Britech highlights IT, which is the core competence of the College. Green, as with the Interface Logo, honors its beginnings from Interface. Embodied in the globe is the Britech team, holding hands in educating global citizens. The swoosh is a reminder to focus and move quickly and smoothly in achieving the Vision (inner swoosh) and Mission (outer swoosh). Steering Britech are the values of Excellence, Empowerment and E-growth, represented by the three dots in the swoosh.
The tassels surrounding the flag, symbolizes a tightly knitted local and global community, the stakeholders of the institution, the learners, their parents, the administrators and the educators, the government, the benefactors, the industries and partners.
Blue– Like the color of the ocean, is perceived as a constant in our lives. Blue is associated with intelligence, stability and unity. BRiTech breathes the meaning associated with blue, the importance of education, the gift of confidence to the learners to find their intelligence, their being “bright”, leading to their stability. It reflects the institution’s constancy and commitment in the journey to excellence.
Yellow– Hope and happiness, the nature and culture of yellow, projects the power of the sun. This is the fabric of hope for each one in BRitech, as sure as the sun will rise each day, the aspirations of each Britechies, will come true, obstacles notwithstanding. It is empowering, with the raised Britech flag, as the emblem of hope.
Green– The wonder of life and nature. It is the color of learning, harmony, growth and prosperity. Britech integrates balance and a sense of order in the midst of change and transformation necessary for growth. The energy of green gives the ability to sustain changes while maintaining harmony. This crystallizes the desire for prosperity and success for all.
