Challenges in Engineering Education at the University of the Philippines-Diliman

T. Pagsuyoin, Sheree Ann and Delias, Dina Marie (2005) Challenges in Engineering Education at the University of the Philippines-Diliman. In: Regional Conference on Engineering Education RCEE 2005, 12-13 Dec 2005, Johor, Malaysia.



The College of Engineering of the University of the Philippines-Diliman Campus was founded in 1910 and currently has eight departments offering a total of twelve undergraduate courses. On the average, over three thousand students are enrolled each year. In the college, teaching methods have evolved from relying on chalks and boards to incorporating software and computer-based learning to the curriculum. As part of the program on improving teaching effectiveness, professional development and teaching skills enhancement workshops are provided for the faculty. Linkages with the industry are being strengthened to provide more avenues for research funding and undergraduate/graduate employment. Effort is exerted in promoting interest in engineering following decline in student population over the past five years and the increasing engagement of graduates in non- engineering fields after graduation. Course curriculum revisions are focused on responding to demands for more globally competitive and well-rounded engineers.
