Engineering, the bedrock of all professions

Since ancient times, when man first developed the wheel and axle to move wagons and tools to carve canoes out of wood, engineering has already become an indispensible part of creating machines and giving birth to technologies that improve people’s lives.

Beginning with the industrial revolution when the electric motor, vacuum tube and transistor were created, engineering has paved the way for the continuous design and invention of machines and technologies that not only solve everyday problems, but more importantly, spur widespread growth and development. Today, engineering marvels such as medical equipment, micro computers, high speed transportation, earthquake-proof infrastructure, robotics, the Internet and other technologies have become vital components of established and sunrise industries.

Engineering, however, is not only credited with bringing to life various industries as most, if not all, modern-day and emerging professions in the manufacturing, food and beverage, power generation, transportation, healthcare, agriculture, banking, and other industries have become heavily reliant on equipment and technology developed by engineers.

In the food and beverage industry, food processing, heat sterilization and packaging technologies developed by engineers have enabled more factories to quickly produce high quality and safe food products with longer shelf life. Around the world, farmers also turn to chemical engineers for solutions on how to increase and improve the quality of their crop production.

In the medical industry, high-tech diagnostic machines have helped physicians to better probe the human body for diseases while operating room equipment developed by engineers have dramatically helped doctors save lives. Artificial joints, limbs and bionic arms developed by medical engineers are now used in replacement surgeries to enable patients to have normal lives.

Recognizing the important role of engineers in advancing professions and industries, the Technological Institute of the Philippines (TIP), a leading and internationally-recognized engineering institution in the country, is committed to produce highly skilled engineers that can come up with inventions and innovations to help build and strengthen industries.

“The growing and ever-changing needs of industries create different problems that require creative solutions. Professionals want the equipment and technology they are using to be more efficient and powerful than ever before, this is where Filipino engineers can come in,” said TIP president Dr. Elizabeth Quirino-Lahoz.

To achieve this, TIP is offering some of the country’s best engineering and computing programs that are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) and Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET), the global gold standard in accreditation of college and university programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology.

To date, TIP offers 18 ABET-accredited engineering and computing programs in its Manila and Quezon City campuses, the most for any educational institution in the country. These include Chemical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Sanitary Engineering, Computer Science, Information Systems, and Information Technology.

Since 2010, the school has also adopted an Outcomes-Based Teaching and Learning approach in all its academic programs to ensure its graduates are equipped with a skill set that can match the needs of various industries.
