The Department of Engineering Science (DES) is the multidisciplinary department of the College of Engineering and Agro-Industrial Technology (CEAT). It aims to provide world-class fundamental engineering courses, conduct interdisciplinary research and extension programs, and provide public service programs.
The DES was established on February 23, 1983 when CEAT was elevated into a full-fledged college from the former Institute of Agricultural Engineering Technology (INSAET). The Department was conceived primarily to handle basic and fundamental engineering courses and serve as a springboard from which additional degree programs or departments could emerge.
- To deliver high quality engineering science education by providing continuous teacher-student learning support systems, creating state-of-the-art teaching facilities, and rationalizing and upgrading the various curricular offerings according to the needs of the different degree programs in the college and the country;
- To conduct basic and applied researches in engineering and materials science in response to the current and anticipatory needs of the country; and
- To create a strong engineering information technology foundation for the college and for the industries through the expansion and upgrading of information technology resources.
