BAYBAY CITY- Visayas State University-College of Engineering and Technology (VSU-CET) conducted a college-wide seminar on “Engineering and Technology” research aligned with the culmination of the CET Week held last March 06, 2020 at the CET Activity Hall, VSU, Baybay City.
Anchored on the theme “Shifting Paradigm Towards Sustainable Approaches for Industry 4.0”, the seminar-lecture featured the graduate theses of five (5) CET faculties from each of the department of civil engineering, mechanical engineering, geodetic engineering, agriculture and biosystems engineering, and meteorology, including:
Drone Technology for Precision farming: Current Status, Challenges, and Barriers by Engr. Eldon P. de Padua, Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering
Effects of Weather Disturbances to Traffic Flow Parameters by Engr. Hanzel N. Meija, Department of Civil Engineering
Integration of Barangay Management and Information System (BMIS) and Geographic Information System (GIS) for Climate and Disaster Risk Assessment (CDRA) by Engr. Juztine Jane L. Rebuyas, Department of Geodetic Engineering
Understanding Lightning and Thunderstorms (ULAT) for Extreme Weather Monitoring and Information Sharing by Mr. Charlie S. Andan, Department of Meteorology
Understanding Building Thermal Simulation and Energyplus by Engr. Philip Caesar Ebit, Department of Mechanical Engineering
In an interview, Engr. Hanzel N. Meija, a faculty from the Department of Civil Engineering and one of the speakers for the seminar emphasized the importance of the event for both students and faculty of the college.
“I believe that this event is very significant because it allowed the faculty members to share the outputs of their respective research. This is [also] a chance for the students to gain ideas in doing research and also get additional knowledge that is not usually taught in the classroom,” he said.
CET-SSC President John Allan A. Gulles shared how beneficial such activity was for students like himself.
"We wanted to inspire young advocates to continue searching for truth; continue learning how to conduct relevant studies and improve the quality of life. As aspiring scientists and engineers, it is our job to provide innovations, research, and interventions for continuous development and progress.”
The seminar-lecture aimed to expose students to relevant research concerning the field of engineering and technology and continue to prosper therein.
CET Dean Dr. Roberto C. Guarte and other faculties from the college were also present during the event.
