9th Philippine Robotics Olympiad Teachers Training-Workshop at Ateneo de Manila University

The Philippine Robotics Olympiad (PRO) annually conducts Teachers Training-Workshop. This is the 4th time that theTeachers training was held in Ateneo de Manila University. Teachers from all over the country converge at Ateneo to learn the basics of Robotics using the lego RCX/NXT framework. This year, the PRO training was held last July 23 to 24, 2010 at CTC-219. The event was participated by 48 teachers from as far as Isabela and Naga. The workshop is sponsored by Felta Multimedia, Lego Education, DepEd? and DOST. Former ECCE faculty Engr. Reggie Gustilo taught the basics of Robotics as well as the basics of Robot programming using the Lego Mindstorm program. Carlos Oppus and Bryan Lao assisted the teachers in the installation, programming and construction of the robots.

Smart Communications Inc. (SMART) conducted the first-ever Android mobile developer competition here in the Philippines. It opened last September 18, 2009 and ended last October 8, 2009. There were 18 teams vying for the ultimate prize of P150,000, an HTC Magic handset, a free trip to Hong Kong, and the chance of representing the country at the Conexus Mobile Alliance Android Showcase. The teams GeoSpatial? Solutions Inc. and Blue Chip Designs, Inc. grabbed the top prizes. The team Blue Chip Designs, Inc. were composed of Noel Patron (BS Physics with Computer Engineering), Anna Veronica Baterina (BS Physics with Computer Engineering), and Jovilyn Therese Fajardo (BS Chemistry with Computer Engineering), all graduates of Ateneo de Manila University and are currently graduate students of the Department of Electronics, Computer and Communications Engineering. Their winning Android application is called RemoteDroid?. The said application is designed to solve the problem of retrieving important information from your phone when you forgot them at home, in school, in the office, etc. It allows the user to remotely access their phone through SMS that is, you can get a contact’s number, receive incoming messages and calls, get your phone’s location, and others with just a text.

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. Reyes, Associate Professor at the Department of ECCE.

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.
