Adamson University can boast of a new gem to show off as one of its pioneer programs has been given another high distinction.
The Industrial Engineering (IE) program of the College of Engineering has been identified by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) as Center of Development (COD) following the results of the ocular verification/evaluation and subsequent recommendation by the Technical Panel for Engineering and Technology (TPET). The identification as COD was approved during the 354th Commission en banc meeting last May 26.
According to the CHED website, CODs and Centers of Excellence (COEs) are public and private higher education institutions which have demonstrated the highest degree or level of standards along the areas of instruction, research and extension. These institutions also provide institutional leadership in all aspects of development in specific areas of discipline by providing networking arrangements to help ensure the accelerated development of HEIs in their respective service areas.
The IE program has a long, illustrious history and is one of the first courses to be established in the University. AdU itself is recognized as one of the first schools ever to institute the study of industrial engineering in the country. The department was recently at the forefront of the 10th National Congress and 4th IE Research Conference of the Philippine Institute of Industrial Engineers (PIIE), held last March 11 and 12, where several AdU administrators took charge of the event.
IE joins nine other programs in Adamson to become CODs/COEs and Center of Training. The date and venue for the awarding ceremonies will be set at a later date. Yael Esperat
