ABOUT CIEE

The Center for Innovation in Engineering Education (CIEE) envisions to advance the quality of engineering education in order to develop academic and industry leaders in the global knowledge economy.

CIEE aims to establish an engineering education hub that is committed to develop synergies within a community of interdisciplinary experts to further promote exchange of knowledge and resources from the university level to the industry sector or vice versa. The Center provides support to the engineering curriculum development as well as in achieving target areas in research, teaching, learning, and assessment pedagogies, professional training for capacity building and other Higher Education Institutions (HEI) needs. We also manage industry linkages and partnerships to foster developments in engineering education. CIEE also organizes international conferences in engineering education and manages the publishing of paper publications.

GOALS

To fulfill its mandate of advancing engineering education and excellence, the CIEE has three (3) main objectives:

  1. 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.
  2. To manage the partnership development, internationalization and global engagements, sustainable resource generation, scouting of grants, donation and endowment, and establishment of foundation.
  3. To manage the conduct of conferences, technical exhibitions, and job fairs; as well as the publication of journals, magazines and newsletters, IEC (information, education and communication) materials, and digital content.

“The Center for Innovation in Engineering Education provides opportunities for the university’s stakeholders to discover their potentials and enhance their technical and creative skills in a vibrant academic and research environment. Through pragmatic, innovation-driven activities anchored on industry-responsive programs,

[T]he CIEE builds on advanced knowledge and intellectual capital, which serve as the currency of the now and of the future...

...so that its competitive advantage is acquired in the local and global workplace.”

ENGINEERING AT BATANGAS STATE UNIVERSITY

Engineering at BatStateU is housed in the university's premier college. As the country’s pioneer in the full implementation of outcomes-based teaching and learning and the integration of Technopreneurship in its curriculum, the the 40+ flagship programs address the concerns of the present and requirements of the future by concretizing strategic initiatives in instructional delivery, research productivity, and community-oriented extension activities.

Nurturing Innovators by Embracing Standards of Excellence

The engineering programs at BatStateU are accredited by the US-based Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology – Engineering Accreditation Commission (ABET-EAC) and by the Philippine Technological Council (PTC) - ACBET. In addition, the Philippine government, through the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), recognizes the Electronics Engineering as a Center of Excellence, and the Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering as Centers of Development. The Electronics Engineering program also received a four-star rating from QS Stars. The programs produce top-notch licensed engineers, with over 166 graduates topping the national licensure and certification examinations administered by the Philippine Regulation Commission (PRC).

Partnering with the Nation and the World

The university has engaged more than 100 international and national universities and over 1,000 industries as its partners in the delivery of engineering education. Anchored primarily on the tenets of outcomes-based education, all of its program offerings undergo continuous quality improvement through national and international accreditation, while its faculty and students engage in industry immersion, faculty and student exchanges, and international cooperation to ensure that the graduates achieve the student outcomes that would allow them to thrive in their professional and career practice in local and global environments.

Staying True to the Mission of Innovation

With over 300 professionals facilitating the delivery of instruction and the provision of services to more than 11,000 students, and through their unwavering commitment to quality and excellence, BatStateU's engineering programs remain proud producers of highly competent innovators and members of the workforce in the country and in other parts of the world. Embracing advanced educational structures while responding to the challenges of the globalized, industry-driven economy, the engineering programs continue to be competitive and relevant by providing innovative solutions that serve as precursors of discovery and sustainability, remaining true to the university’s mission of leading innovations and transforming lives.

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.

“With the continuous shifts in the academic and industry landscapes, the Center for Innovation in Engineering Education remains steadfast in transforming challenges into opportunities.

We do this by having an innovation and technopreneurial ecosystem spurred by a research-oriented academic community...

....that puts premium to critical and creative thinking in providing solutions to complex problems. We train our students and other stakeholders to be industry-ready and globally competitive by instilling in them transdisciplinarity, social intelligence, new media literacy, computational thinking, design mindset, and virtual collaboration, which are skills required in the emerging professional environment.”

Dean, College of Engineering, Architecture and Fine Arts

CONFERENCES & EVENTS

The CIEE will host the ICIEE 2021 this coming November!

This September 2021, BatStateU will host the 3rd International Energy and Electricity Market Business Decision Simulation Online Competition. This is in partnership with the Shanghai University of Electric Power

Simultaneous to celebrating the World Engineering Day 2021, BatStateU launched the CIEE in its commitment to continuously bettering Engineering Education for all.


PROGRAMS & PROJECTS

Support Programs:

1.) In support of the engineering programs, the CIEE develops initiatives that aim to enhance the curricular goals, graduate attribute assessment and continuous quality improvements by leveling standards and expectations with industry partners locally and internationally.

2.) The continually evolving demands in teacher skill and knowledge are measured and thoroughly translated into academic standards. The CIEE assists in this through skill acquisition programs for new mentors and selection and awarding of professorial chairs for experienced and distinguished faculty.

3.) Improvement activities include assessment and feedback from the learners and teachers, growing the body of research in engineering education. The CIEE engages the research community through research conferences, exhibits and events, as well as and through publication opportunities.

4.) Outward, the CIEE programs share developments with neighboring HEIs and seeks opportunities with industries. Job fairs, scholarships, and research grants help create a better society through dynamically improving engineering education.
