Romblon State University (RSU) formally inaugurated the engineering school factories located at the main campus in Odiongan town.
This was after the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Mimaropa turns over cutting and bending equipment for the school factories housed by the Center for Innovative Learning and Enterprise Development at the Romblon State University or C-iLearnED@RSU, the pioneering Research Center of the University.
RSU President Dr. Merian Catajay-Mani and DOST-Romblon Provincial Director Lina Servañez lead the ribbon-cutting with Dr. Alfredo F. Fortu Jr., Dean of the RSU-College of Engineering and Technology (CET).
CET spearheads the metalworking and woodworking laboratories considered as an in-campus business enterprise managed by RSU.
DOST-Mimaropa funded more than P2-million for the metalworking and woodworking enterprise that aims to enhance the K-12 and outcomes-based (OBE) engineering program of the university, as technopreneurship is one of the required courses in the new engineering curriculum.
This project will also beef up research capabilities of students and faculty members through the addition of equipment for developing new products.
