ICEE-Phil 2018:

“Facing the Challenges of Industry 4.0”

The International Conference on Engineering Education – Philippines (ICEE-Phil) is a gathering of Engineering Educators around the world with the common interest of advancing Engineering Education through innovative approaches to Teaching & Learning and curriculum design, and Program Quality Assurance, Leadership and Program Management strategies.  Among others, it is focused on the use of technology for effective Instruction delivery to the new generation of engineering learners, and on management strategies that allow agility in adopting innovative approaches to Teaching & Learning amid fast-changing changing global education environment driven by Industry 4.0.  It is organized by the Philippine Association of Engineering Schools (PAES), Inc., which is comprised of more than 140 Higher Education Institutions (HEI) in the Philippines offering Engineering Programs as members.  ICEE-Phil is held in conjunction with the annual General Membership Meeting (GMM) of PAES.  For information on PAES, please click here.

Aside from the Plenary Sessions, there are also Parallel Technical Sessions in ICEE-Phil.  All papers accepted for presentation in ICEE-Phil 2018 will be published in the Philippine Journal of Engineering Education (PJEE), unless otherwise is desired by the author/s.  For information on PJEE, please click here.

ICEE-Phil also features Industry  Product Exhibit where educational products that can aid Engineering Schools in delivering cutting-edge Instruction and in upgrading and modernizing their research facilities are showcased.  Engineering Schools administrators will have the opportunity to interact with makers and distributors of these products during the Conference.  An evening ‘Fellowship’ is also held for networking opportunities and cultural enrichment among participants.

The first ICEE-Phil was held in October 2015 at the University of Santo Tomas in the City of Manila.  There were more than 200 participants representing more than 30 HEIs and more than 10 companies from six countries in three continents.  Most of the participants are administrators of Engineering Schools of the member Institutions and Institutions from other countries.  The second ICEE-Phil was held at the De La Salle University, Taft Ave., Malate, City of Manila, Philippines  in October 2016.   The theme was “Internationalization and Innovation: Towards World-class Engineering Education”.

For its third installment, ICEE-Phil went back to the University of Santo Tomas in the City of Manila, Philippines with the theme, Engineering Educators as Prime Movers for Lifelong Learning”.  As in the previous years, there were about 200 participants.

This year, for the first time, ICEE-Phil goes out of Metro-Manila as the Holy Angel University in Angeles City, Pampanga hosts the 4th ICEE-Phil with the theme, “Facing the Challenges of Industry 4.0”.  With the vitality of Pampanga a big part of which comes from the Clark Freeport Economic Zone, its interesting culture and sceneries, and its well-known culinary wealth, participants will not only be treated to the offerings of ICEE-Phil but also to what Pampanga has to offer.

With the interests shown by the members in the discussion on Engineering Education Quality Assurance Forum at ICEE-Phil 2017, more fora will be held this year.  The ICEE-Phil Team hopes to engage the participants in these fora.

Also, as a pre-conference event, this year, PAES holds the biennial “Undergraduate Engineering Design Competition”, which features the work of undergraduate students from PAES member schools.  Three (3) final winners will be chosen, and will be announced at ICEE-Phil 2018.
