Don Bosco Technical Institute (DBTI) [1], or simply "Don Bosco Makati" is a private Catholic educational institution owned and operated by the Salesians of Don Bosco. Its campus is located at Chino Roces Avenue Makati City, Metro Manila, Philippines. In January 1954 Fr. Charles Braga, SDB was the Provincial and at this time, the cornerstone of Don Bosco Makati was laid down. at the same year, construction of the first building was completed which housed the chapel, the convent, a youth center, and the auditorium.

Some Salesian priests namely Fr. Quaranta, Fr. Jua,. Fr. Righetti, Fr. Patrick Ryan, and Brother Nicolino Tambascia started to work at the Youth Center. In January 1955 Religious clubs, youth groups and catechism classes were formed. In June of the same year the Grade School edifice was built. Enrollees for Grades V, VI and for first year in the secondary level were accepted. In 1956 the first thirty six (36) Grade VI pupils were the first graduates from Don Bosco Makati.




The full circle made of laurel and gear represents the dual academic and technical curriculum offered by the school. The star, the anchor and the heart represent respectively the three theological virtues of faith, hope, and charity. The shining star also symbolizes Mary, the star of the sea and the Help of Christians. The flaming heart stands for the most Sacred Heart of Jesus to whom Don Bosco was so devout. Below the anchor is the Sea that symbolizes the fullness of life. The pine trees represent the literal meaning of the founder's name BOSCO which means woods. The high mountains stand for perfection and the Educative Pastoral Community (EPC) should strive to attain. These are expressed in the school's motto MELIORA ELIGO which means "I choose the better things".[2]

Multiple Intelligence Center

In 1999 Fr. Caesar Dizon, SDB, former rector of Don Bosco Technical Institute-Makati City, spearheaded a special project and organized a working team to conceptualize the development of a new learning center called MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCE CENTER. This center is patterned from the theory of Dr. Howard Gardner who believed that every man has his own kind of intelligence and potential as a person.

The MIC was conceived to make students,teachers and personnel to be in touch with technological change. This change reflects a major challenge present in today's society-that is, the use of modern technology in all aspects of humanity. The MIC became a learning center equipped with the state-of-the-art technology and incorporating modern theories and principles.

On August 15, 2000, after its blessing by the Rector, the new MIC became functional with the appointment of Ms.Ofelia Dantes as its first MIC Head.
