About FEATI

FEATI Bridgepoint

Dr. Salvador Araneta with his wife Dr. Victoria Lopez de Araneta founded the Far Eastern Air Transport Incorporated (FEATI), the first airline in the Philippines flying the Iloilo-Manila-Hongkong route.[1] The couple’s shared vision to take people to life-changing destinations paved way for a more critical approach in aeronautics, technology, and the sciences.[1]

The couple decided to close the airline company, but kept its name when they founded the FEATI Institute of Technology on March 6, 1946 as a school particularly focused on engineering and technology.[1] Thirteen years later, the school earned university status as granted by the Department of Education with Dr. Victoria Lopez de Araneta as the first president of FEATI University.[1]

It currently occupies a 5-hectare campus. FEATI University has successfully produced outstanding alumni who have served in the government, military, diplomatic corps and private sector in the field of engineering, science, technology and commerce.

Today, FEATI University is a non-sectarian co-educational institution with a Catholic orientation. It continues to adhere on the very vision Dr. Salvador and Dr. Victoria Araneta believed in. It offers undergraduate and graduate programs.
