Students fly to Malaysia for engineering camp

Two Civil Engineering students participated in the ASEAN Vocational and Engineering Camp last July 16 to 23 at the Faculty of Technical and Vocational Education, Johor, Malaysia, in partnership with Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia.

Fifth-year student Lendon Tabligan and third-year student John Rey Jimenez bested two other students who applied to participate in AVEC 2017. Tabligan bagged the “Best Idea Award” for his group’s prototype work on an automatic sprinkler system for plants, which can be controlled remotely using a mobile phone. Meanwhile, Jimenez served as the leader of his group, whose prototype was dubbed JIPAKU bin, a creative trash solution. Though students were previously sent to Japan and Singapore in 2016, Tabligan and Jimenez were the first students to go abroad through the TraVerSE Program of the Center for External Affairs.

TraVerSE stands for Train, Volunteer, Study, and Exchange Abroad Program, which is the latest initiative of the College to pursue internationalization.
