Our Engineering Alumni: Leaders in the Industry and Academe
Since the university started offering engineering programs in 1971, it has produced more than18,000 engineering professionals who have taken dynamic roles and various positions of influence in their respective organizations, thus creating positive impact to the industry and the society. The engineering alumni remain steadfast in transforming challenges into opportunities, applying the skills of transdisciplinarity, social intelligence, computational thinking, design mindset, and virtual collaboration, which are requisites in the emerging professional environment. They continue to be active participants in nation building, leading the workforce and making a distinct mark in the local and global settings.
The Center for Innovation in Engineering Education (CIEE) was established in _______ as an education advancement, research, partnership, and professional training arm of the College of Engineering (COE). It aims to provide training and support to the college in achieving its targets in area of research, teaching, learning, and assessment pedagogies, professional training for engineers’ capacity building and other Higher Education Institutions (HEI) needs. The center also manages the partnerships and linkages inititatives of the college, engineering alumni foundation, Journal of Innovation in Engineering Education (JIEE), the Students International Conference in Engineering Education (SCIEE), and the holding of international conferences in engineering education and paper publications. Being at the forefront of engineering education advancement and excellence, the CIEE sees itself as the engineering education hub in the CAALBARZON region in particular and the country in general.
The CIEE Goals
To fulfill its mandate of advancing engineering education and excellence, the CIEE has three (3) main objectives:
- To provide support to the engineering curriculum development, assessment of graduate attributes, continuing professional development, teaching excellence recognition and awards, continuous quality improvement (CQI), selection and awarding of professorial chairs, mentoring of new engineering educators, spearheading research in engineering education, and direction setting to the college of engineering. It is also part of the objective to provide direction setting support to other HEIs.
- To manage the partnership development, internationalization and global engagements, sustainable resource generation, scouting of grants, donation and endowment, and establishment of foundation.
- To manage the conduct of conferences, technical exhibitions, job fairs, journal publications, magazines and newsletters, information, education and communication (IEC) materials, maintenance of CIEE website, and development of online contents.
NEW ENGINEERING PROGRAM OFFERINGS
The university’s curricula remain strong and pragmatic through the provision of an academic atmosphere that synergizes technical learning and exciting opportunities for the student’s holistic growth.
In order to effectively respond to the emerging needs of the industry and the general society, Batangas State University offers exciting new programs for its new students starting the academic year 2021-2022. These new programs would provide opportunities for students to nurture their technical and creative skills and cultivate analytical and critical thinking necessary in the emerging industries.
These new program offerings will allow students to acquire 21st century competencies to discover novel ideas within a global environment that fosters knowledge creation and stimulates innovation.
