Engineering Students' Internship Program in Taiwan Universities

24 Jun 2011 - 07:37 by RodCoronel in News

Since the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement between the Ateneo de Manila University and Chung Yuan Christian University (CYCU) in ChungLi?, Taiwan 6 years ago, senior students at the Department of Electronics, Computer and Communications Engineering have attended summer internship at various research laboratories in CYCU. This activity provides students the opportunity to experience student life in a foreign university, start collaborative research projects with esteemed professors and graduate students and study the Taiwan culture as well. An exchange program with Chung Chou University of Technology (CCUT) in Yuanlin, Taiwan also commenced this year.

This summer, 11 students participated (7 in CYCU and 4 in CCUT) in the 6-week summer internship held on April 11 – May 23, 2011. To date, a total of 45 students have benefited from this program. The partnership with the Taiwan universities and the continuing success of this summer internship program is through the efforts of Dr. Rosula S.J.

School of Science and Engineering receives systems design and training lab from National Instruments

02 May 2011 - 10:40 by RodCoronel in News

The School of Science and Engineering (SOSE) received a Systems Design and Training Laboratory from National Instruments, global leader in providing test, measurement, and embedded systems for engineers and scientists. The laboratory, located at CTC 315 at the Ateneo Loyola Heights campus, was unveiled during the official opening ceremony on April 29, 2011. The laboratory houses 10 sets of hardware for teaching and learning LabVIEW? Basic 1 and Basic 2 courses, as well as 10 sets of tables and chairs.

The donation, totaling US$ 45,000, also includes training and certification for three Ateneo instructors in LabVIEW? core courses, Data Acquisition core courses, LabVIEW? Associate Developer Certification, and LabVIEW? Developer Certification.

In SOSE Associate Dean Dr. Evangeline Bautista’s welcome remarks, she noted how the donation will advance Ateneo’s “leadership in creative and innovative research work.” It will also help science and engineering faculty teach and train students in circuits, measurements, controls, telecommunications, microcontrollers and embedded design.

Pete Zogas, Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing at National Instruments, said that he “hopes a lot of people will benefit from the partnership between Ateneo and NI.” He also talked about Planet NI, the company’s outreach program. Strategically focusing on academic institutions in developing countries, Planet NI seeks to empower engineers in developing countries and aims to make technology accessible and affordable to these countries. To date, Planet NI, has launched 12 programs and initiatives around the world in areas such as clean water, solar panels, wind energy and wave energy since its inception two years ago.

Planet NI’s partnership with the Ateneo de Manila University is its first outreach program with a Philippine academic institution. According to Chandran Nair, Managing Director of National Instruments ASEAN, NI chose to partner with Ateneo because the university carries vision and values that align with NI. Moreover, he also cited NI and Ateneo’s long history of working together, and praised the university for its willingness to put in resources to train engineers. “We wanted to make sure that we work with a university which understands our technology,” Nair said.

Dr. John Paul Vergara, Vice President for the Loyola Schools, accepted the donation. “Here at the Ateneo we place much importance on experiential learning for our students and on finding ways to apply research to real world problems and situations. With the opening of the Systems Design and Training Laboratory, the School of Science and Engineering’s capability to meet these two needs is greatly increased,” he said.

Ateneo Orgs Do Online Giving Through

06 Dec 2010 - 16:57 by RodCoronel in Announcement

There's a new way of sharing your blessings this Christmas season. An online "giving platform" called Pasagoods is now available at starting November 29, 2010. Pasagoods allows its users to select from a list of screened charity programs and make a contribution via credit card or Smart Money. Aside from this, other main features include sharing your donation activity on popular social networks, and tracking your donation through updates from the charity organization.

The principle behind Pasagoods is that giving is for everyone. Charity is not only for those who can donate thousands nor is it for those who have lots of time and energy to spare. Pasagoods emphasizes that small individual contributions can actually add up to address particular needs in our community. Pasagoods is the epitomy of Bayanihan 2.0 -- networked individuals making postive changes happen.

Pioneer projects on Pasagoods are projects of the Sector-Based Cluster organizations namely, Krismusmos of Musmos, Wishlist Program of Speed, Book Drive of Kaingin, and Christmas Party of Kythe-Ateneo. These projects by accredited organizations of Ateneo de Manila University are screened based on relevance and previous successes.

Pasagoods is brought to you by a group of innovators called Infini Technology Partners of the Ateneo Innovation Center, in cooperation with Smart Communications.

New Readings from the Innovation and Technology Class

-- GregTangonan - 05 Feb 2008

Here we present Hot New Reading materials that supplement the discussions in the Innovation and Technology Class. Welcome to the Commission on Science and Technology and Engineering that is studying the competitiveness of Philippines in S&T. We invite readers to comment on the different papers.

South Korea science prepares to take on the world by Choe Sang-Hun taken from the International Herald Tribune Online (January 18, 2008).  Radical changes are happening in the education of scientists and engineers at KAIST. Led by a 71 year old University President, who spent many years at MIT as a Faculty member, has required teaching in English, emphasis on innovative research and less bookish learning. (Could we ever do something similar  in the Philippines?)

Eight Business Technologies to Watch by J. Manyika, R. Roberts and K. Sprague in The McKinsey? ?? Quarterly Online (December 2007). The authors review eight new technology-based trends that businesses can use to enhance decision making, lower business costs, tap new global talent pools, and seize new  business opportunities.

The $1.4 Trillion Question by James Fallows in The Atlantic Online  (January/ February 2008). This is a terrific article that explains the very precarious situation the US is in with respect to dealing with China. The basic equation is really scary: the Chinese are subsidizing the American way of life. China has a 50 % savings rate (albeit an enforced rate) and the US is at zero savings rate. Can this situation persist? What are the consequences of a radical change in this relationship? (We ought to be asking: How does this relationship affect the Philippines’ ability to compete?)

Why Apple Isn’t Japanese by Christian Caryl in Newsweek Online (December 1, 2008). Basic question: how could technological giants like NTT DoCoMo? ??, Sony Corp, being NEC stumble when it comes too innovation? What is not  happening in Japan that is happening in the US?

Demographic Crisis, Robotic Cure by Blaine Harden in Washington Post Online (January 7, 2008). How the demographic crisis in Japan is hurting its ability to compete. Robots for health care is the rage for many of Japan’s high tech companies, but immigration for health care may be the better (but unacceptable) solution.

Yahoo bid may backfire by Elizabeth Montalbano in MacWorld? ?? (Feb 1, 2008). This blockbuster deal has everyone scrambling - Google is offering to help Yahoo fend off Microsoft, others are contemplating an alternative bid against Microsoft. In this article Montalbano argues that Microsoft will have to make major changes in its own strategy and product makeup to make taking on Google a win.
