The Davao Oriental State College of Science and Technology (DOSCST)
was established on December 13, 1989 by virtue of
Republic Act 6807 
in response to the need for quality tertiary education in the province. It was a conversion from the Mati Community College (MCC) founded in 1972 by Mayor Thelma Z. Almario who, as congresswoman, authored the law creating DOSCST.
As a local government-run community college, MCC offered liberal arts and business-oriented programs. Since its inception in 1972,
Dr. Leopoldo Bravo an administrator of the Department of Education Culture and Sports, headed it.
The electronic Student Information Portal (eSIP)
provides an easy access to student information. It serves as a tool in
connecting electronic student information to the students themselves through the schools' websites. eSIP features online
access to personal student profile, academic records, grades, class schedules, financial accounts and subject offering.
