Since 1971, the College of Engineering in BatStateU, formerly Pablo Borbon Memorial Institute of Technology (PBMIT), has been the institution’s premier college that offers its flagship programs. In the spirit of quality and dedication, the CIEE was established as the university’s official arm in advancing engineering education coincident with the celebration of World Engineering Day (WED) 2021. The CIEE is the first of its kind in the country. 

The conference will also feature part of the Innovation Challenge Competition, a thematic competition that challenges students of higher education institutions (HEIs) to ideate, innovate, and pitch solutions addressing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The top ten (10) teams of the said competition will be announced prior to the closing of the ICIEE 2021. Said teams shall undergo an innovation program to improve the minimum viable products, conduct validation activities, and prepare for the final demo and pitching day scheduled on December 6 and 7 this year during the 5th International Research Conference on the Innovations in Engineering, Science, and Technology (IRCIEST V).
