Richard L. Lee Engineering and Technology Block inaugurated
The Richard L. Lee Engineering and Technology Block of DLSU Laguna Campus was inaugurated last January 18. In partnership with Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (HARI), the block will be maximized through housing cooperative innovations of students and faculty.
Situated on the 50-hectare Laguna Campus, the new building caters to several engineering courses. Other programs will also be occupying the block, such as the Animo Labs, which welcomes tech startups by supporting creators with patents and funding. Aside from this, the new facility also houses research laboratories that will cater to the College of Computer Studies.
Richard L. Lee, Chairman Emeritus of HARI and himself an alumnus of DLSU, shared that he wanted to echo the mission of St. John Baptist de La Salle in educating young minds, believing that “knowledge not shared is stagnant knowledge.” Thus, he hoped that the new building would encourage innovation, adding that the block would stand “as a leading commitment to producing generations of Lasallians rich in knowledge and skills, but even richer in heart—putting their energy, talents, ambitions, and ideas to bring more greatness to our nation.”
