CE 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 topics.

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.
