The Technological Institute of the Philippines (T.I.P.) held the inaugural episode of its TechnoCoRe Brown Bag Sessions last February 24, 2021. In this virtual event, researchers and faculty members shared their experiences in collaborative applied research and projects with the school’s industry partners. It was witnessed by T.I.P.’s management and academic community from the Quezon City and Manila campuses.
A total of 12 T.I.P. project teams presented during the TechnoCoRe Brown Bag Sessions, each sharing their experiences, learnings, and insights from working on applied research projects and consultancies with T.I.P.’s partners. These projects cover various fields of expertise, namely: (a) software development; (b) enterprise resource planning; (c) product design, system design, and development; (d) automation, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analytics; (e) power and energy engineering; and (f) environmental and sanitary engineering.
Some of the industry partners for these endeavors include ADEC Innovations Healthcare Incorporated, Almedah Food Machineries Corporation, Applied Machining Corporation, Conservation International Philippines, JGenTech, Metercor, SiglaVent, and SubicWater.
T.I.P. TechnoCoRe is the school’s thrust towards Technopreneurship and Collaborative Applied Research. It empowers T.I.P.’s researchers, faculty members, and students to work on innovative solutions to the problems of stakeholders, including government, industry, civic organizations, and society at large.
At the Brown Bag Sessions, T.I.P.’s in-house Applied Research Unit, Technical Operations Unit, and Technology Business Incubation Unit also shared their roles in enabling TechnoCoRe’s various completed and on-going efforts. On top of these projects, T.I.P. TechnoCoRe also has a growing portfolio of other collaborative applied research activities across various stages of completion.
“At its very core, TechnoCoRe exposes our researchers and faculty members to experience-based skills development and knowledge application with our partners. It gives them vast opportunities for real-life problem solving, which then translates into better insights and mentoring of their students in the classroom. They are the ones educating and equipping our nation’s future workforce. Therefore, it is in our best interest to put them at the intersection of theory and practice,” said T.I.P. senior vice president Angelo Lahoz during the event.
“As an engineering school, our ability to help stakeholders solve problems through innovative and collaborative applied research is our strong suit. The quality, depth, and breadth of the work we have done and are currently doing with our partners is our contribution to national development. We will always be an open and willing partner of Filipinos, for Filipinos,” concluded Lahoz.
