Education

The Bulacan State University - [http://www.bulsu.edu.ph/colleges/bustos/bustos.htm Bustos Campus] (BulSU Bustos) is the biggest satellite campus in the university. It was established in 1976. For almost a quarter of a century, BSUB has metamorphosed from the center of vocational and technical courses to a breeding ground of future educators and industrial technologists, and as a feeder school of engineering aspirants to the main campus. Conscious of the vision and mission of the university, BSUB has become one of the higher education institutions in Bulacan on a par with leading learning institutions in the region.

From the year it was founded, the external campus grew physically from sharing a roof with the Bustos Elementary school to a five-room former public market building to the imposing campus that it is today. The school grew as well from offering vocational technical courses and trade secondary school curriculum and two-year technical education courses, to the four year and five-year degree programs that it now offers. The campus boasts of its upgraded and revitalized curriculum.
