6.1 Activities at CPU
7.0 Committee Reports
Dr. Olaño requested Dean Rio to report on the activities to be held
at CPU. Dean Rio reported that there will be a seminar-workshop on
January 26 & 27. The title of the seminar is "The Future of Engineering
Education". According to Dean Rio this seminar has a fix and
definite schedule. The PATE Board were invited to attend. About 20
participants expected to attend, mostly deans and department heads.
The PATE board meeting will be held on January 26 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00
p.m. An interaction between the administrators, faculty, and
the PATE Board may be conducted on January 27 (Sat.) from 1:00-4:00 p.m.
If the schedule would allow it, Dean Sevillano suggested for a day
tour of old churches in the vicinity.
Dean Ureta mentioned that it was expected that when the Board goes on an
out-of-town meeting some funds can be generated to support the trip.
However, it seemed that with a seminar fee of P800.00 per participant,
this will not be sufficient. Dean Rio said that if they charge high
they might be out of the market. After the exchange of ideas,
it was recommended that a school subsidy of P3,000.00 will be required
to support the trip. The board agreed on the recommendation.
Dean Olaño got the consensus of those present with regard
to their attendance in Iloilo City:
1. Xavier University
- Dean Sevillano - will attend
2. UST - Dean Mabini
- will attend
3. SLU - Dean Ballesca
+ 1 participant - will attend
4. DLSU - Dean Olano

6. NU - Ms. Falconit

7. TUP - Dean Manalastas

8. PLM - Dean Tallara

9. UP - Dean Atanacio

It was recommended that an early
reservation both for the airline and hotel be made as the activity will
coincide with the traditional festival in Iloilo City.
6.2 Update on International Conference
There are no definite dates of the conference but surely the conference
will be held during the last week of January 2002. There will be
graduated conference registration fees depending on the country or place
of origin of participant, but the maximum rate will be US$250.00.
The PATE members and the early birds will be given discounted rate.
The body agreed that the conference venue will be at the Manila Midtown
Hotel (same venue as the 2000 conference). The first announcement
for Call for Papers is now in the planning stage. It was recommended
that papers submitted should be within the area/scope of the conference.
There was also a suggestion to contact foreign professors as possible
paper presentors. Another suggestion was to give an award
to the best paper presentor. After some discussion,
it was not considered because of the reasons mentioned.
7.1 Ways and Means Committee
Ureta will send the financial statement to member schools to remind them
of their membership dues. Although the board cited the difficulties of
the member schools with 5 years arrears to update their payment, it was
not possible to give them amnesty since PATE was only reckoning since 1995.
It was recommended to send the PATE newsletter so that these schools so
that they will be aware of the activities/accomplishments of PATE.
of payment of membership fees two years in advance will be
announced during the general membership meeting in Baguio City.
