The College of Technology (formerly College of Technician Education and Technology) was established in 1983 with a mission to fulfill society's requirements, that is, to train and develop middle level manpower through technical education geared towards Philippine Industrialization.

 It started offering the Diploma of Industrial Technology, a two-year technical program on a pilot basis prior to its adoption the following year. The DIT curriculum was eventually revised in 1986 giving way to the offering of the Diploma of Technology, a three-year technical program. The Bachelor of Industrial Technology (BIT) was subsequently offered in the same year.

In 1990, the college began attuning its program offerings to meet manpower demands of current and emerging occupations at the technical and professional levels. The Bachelor of Industrial Technology (BIT) curriculum was revised to include two options namely: technology teaching and industrial technology. The program made the College to its present position of leadership and influence in technology education in the region.

To meet technological advancement that continuously demand for highly qualified technicians and professionals, the College further honed its capability by offering the Master of Technology in 1995. This was followed by the offering of the Master of Industrial Technology through the Mindanao Advanced Education Project (MAEP) in 1997. In the same year, the Bachelor in Computer Technology was offered to cater to the demands of infotech-related occupations.

To meet the demands of professionals, technologists and instructors of vocational and technology programs, the offering of Master of Vocational Educational was approved by the BOR of this University in June 1999. The College of Technology is located at Obrero Campus, Davao City, occupying a building distinct and separate from the other academic units.
