Engineering Program Features
Tracks In The Curriculum
The curriculum for each engineering program is crafted to allow students a track in their area of interest. For example, civil engineering students may choose either structural engineering or water resources, while mechanical engineering students are given three options: automotive, mechatronics or refrigeration and air-conditioning. Consequently, their project study and on-the-job training are aligned to their interest. For the EE and ECE programs, the tracks are power system protection and renewable energy resources, and communications and instrumentation and control, respectively. The CpE program has tracks in embedded system and system and network administration.
The College has fully embraced outcomes-based education system which focuses on the knowledge, skills and values learned and demonstrated by the students. What the students learn rather than what the professors teach counts the most. The whole educational process is student-centered.
Arts, Humanities And Social Sciences
Students shall have strong liberal arts education. In addition to the courses prescribed by the CHED General Education curriculum, the college offers specialized English program, foreign languages, and orientation courses to FEU’s cultural and art heritage, student, and professional life, and career opportunities in engineering.
The ultimate goal is to graduate holistic engineers whose technical competence is balanced with the humane.
First Year Design Project
The engineering curricula area cut from the rest by allowing our first year students to do engineering right at the start instead of just taking prerequisites in mathematics and science. The first year engineering design competition brings out the students’ creativity and innovativeness by designing simple gadgets, contraptions and products.
Technopreneurship And Capstone Design Project Thread
Students take a course in technopreneurship alongside engineering economics, engineering management, methods of research, design thinking and capstone design where in they will explore entrepreneurship discipline in depth and pursue entrepreneurial opportunities. While design is at the heart of the engineering education, developing a creative and innovative mindset is a key to success as a professional or an entrepreneur.
An Introduction to bioengineering is integrated in all engineering curricula to emphasize the importance of molecular cell biology and systems biology and describe the bioengineering options in particular engineering program. In this biotechnology era, the intersection of engineering, biological sciences and medicine has become more relevant and promising.
Soft Skills or Professional Skills
The soft skills or professional skills that emerging engineers need to possess could not be overemphasized.Students are given myriads of opportunities in curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities to develop and further enhance their communication,organizational, leadership and teamanship skills.
Students are not only made to understand their professional and ethical responsibility but are challenged to demonstrate such through their internship program as well as in their professional student organizations. Ethics is not just peripheral but an integral part of engineering education.
