Dep’t assists ICC-La Salle
The Civil Engineering Department
organized a seminar and field trip for 12 engineering students
and two faculty members of Immaculate Concepcion College –
La Salle (ICC-La Salle). The sister school in Ozamis City
will be graduating its first batch of civil engineering students
in March 2001. Held from October 16 to20, the events were
designed to provide the students of ICC-La Salle the industry
exposure that would complement their academic preparations.
The group visited several industrial plants and construction
projects. The success of the visits was achieved through the
help of the alumni and members of the Industry-Academe Linkage
Program. Last October 20, the group visited DLSU-Manila where
they were given a campus tour and a demonstration on the Primavera
Project Planning Software and ACECOMS Grasp Software by the
CE faculty and students.
The faculty members of DLSU-Manila should deliver lectures
to the students to reinforce the lectures of ICC-La Salle
teachers who are still pursuing their graduate degrees. This
arrangement is contained in the Memorandum of Agreement signed
between DLSU-Manila and ICC-La Salle. Dr. Andres Winston Oreta
went to Ozamiz City on September 10-14 and gave reinforcing
lectures on structural engineering subjects. In the same manner,
CE faculty Francisco Franco will visit ICC-La Salle on November
13-16 to lecture on construction materials and project management
These activities reflect the realization of the CE Department’s
role as a CHED Center of Development in Civil Engineering
tasked to assist other civil engineering schools. In the future,
ICC-La Salle will be officially included in the “Adopt an
Engineering School Project” of the College of Engineering.
