IT enrollment soars in Philippines

More students in the Philippines are flocking to information technology (IT) courses amid the rising demand for computer-literate workers both here and abroad. This was borne out by data provided by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), which projects that enrollment in IT and related programs for the school year 2000-2001 will reach 336,642, up 47.6 percent from the estimated figure for SY 1999-2000.
