LPU COE Administrators participate in PAES National Conference and General Membership Meeting
The Philippine Association of Engineering Schools (PAES) formerly known as Philippine Association for Technological Education, Inc. (PATE) held the 2014 PAES National Conference and General Membership Meeting last September 25-26, 2014 at Hyatt Regency Hotel and Casino, Manila.
PAES focused on discussing the different challenges faced by Filipino Engineers posed by the ASEAN Integration or ASEAN 2015 and to help them embrace the internationalization of education. They also presented to its member schools the initiatives PAES took to: establish partnership with CHED on training engineering schools across the country to implement OBE and in taking part in the implementation of K-12, explore opportunities in partnership with Australia Awards and collaborate with international agencies in funding researches. They put emphasis on broadening understanding-importance of international linkages, international research collaborations, faculty development and new modalities in teaching like online and project based learning.
Emphasis on the importance of research in engineering education was also one of the highlights of the event. As a challenge to its member schools, PAES stresses the importance of quality education being provided to engineering students. It is a MUST that schools benchmark with the best practices of leading providers of engineering education in the world. That is, through quality research, instruction and extension.
Dr. Leonardo C. Medina, Jr. COE Dean together with Engr. Ryan C. Reyes, EcE-EE Department Chairperson and Engr. Christopher F. Cunanan, CpE Department Chairperson participated in the said event.
