Once again, CEAT-UPLB proved its excellence in engineering education as two of its offered programs were awarded as Center of Excellence (COE) and Center of Development (COD) by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). The awarding ceremony took place last May 17, 2016, at the HEDC Building, C.P. Garcia Avenue, UP Diliman, Quezon City.
It’s another glorious year for team Royal White, or CEAT-OVCRE tandem, as the team reclaims the title of “Overall-Champion” at the 2016 Palarong UPLB. Garnering 1700 points, Royal White shined thru the 4-day sports event last March 14-18, 2016. This year’s win is part of the winning streak lead by the college, winning first place from 2011-2013 and 2015, and placing first runner up in 2014.
Presenting a scientific paper in front of professors, scientists, and researchers, while simultaneously being “judged” and criticized for your work is always a daunting task. Nevertheless, two BS Chemical Engineering graduates of CEAT, UPLB emerged with flying colors, even bagging the first and second places at the 2015 Magsaysay Future Engineers/Technologists (MFET).
