The College of Engineering and Agro-industrial Technology (CEAT) will celebrate its 111th founding anniversary on Feb. 21-24.

With the theme “Enhancing CEAT’s Sustainability and Resilience for Industry 5.0,” the CEAT anniversary celebration features a ceremonial MOU signing with new industry partners, a turnover ceremony for three buildings, an awarding ceremony honoring outstanding personnel, and the 2nd International Conference on Engineering and Agro-industrial Technology (iCEAT 2023).

The three buildings that will be turned over and renamed are the following: the Department of Civil Engineering Bldg into the Senen M. Miranda Hall, the Agricultural Machinery Testing and Evaluation Center into the Roberto C. Bautista Hall, and the Institute of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Bldg into the Wilfredo P. David Hall.

The annual awarding ceremony (2023 CEAT Awards Night) will be held in person at the Charles Full Baker Hall, the first ever since the pandemic. It will also be the venue for the dinner for a cause, a fundraising activity of the CEAT Alumni Association (UP Alumni Engineers-Los Baños Chapter) to benefit needy students of the college.

iCEAT 2023, themed  “Materials and Processes for the New Normal: Sustainability, Innovation, and Opportunities,” will be conducted virtually. It aims to provide a venue for discussion and recommendations from leading experts, educators, policymakers, and industry representatives on the latest trends, issues, and solutions for engineering and agro-industrial technology.

Meanwhile, CEAT’s Center for Agri-Fisheries and Biosystems Mechanization (BIOMECH) will also celebrate its 44th founding anniversary through an exhibit at the CEAT Lecture Hall. Meanwhile, the student competition, Himig at Sayaw, which is also a part of the founding anniversary celebration, will be set to a later date upon consultation with student organizations. (Mary Jane F.
