  1. HISTORY

As mandated by R. A. 7933, Rizal Polytechnic College (RPC), now University of Rizal System – Morong Campus, being a state college, shall primarily provide the higher technical and professional education for the youth constituents of Rizal who want to pursue higher studies in engineering. Rizal province at its current stage of economic development needs good engineers to improve the productivity of its physical resources and the then, Rizal Polytechnic College, must provide these high quality engineering graduates as it envisions itself as the center of human resource development in academic and technological disciplines.

With the initiative of Dr. Hermy D. Estrabo, the then Dean of the institute of Engineering and Technology, and now the Vice-President for Research, Development, Extension and Production of the University of Rizal System, a team of engineers from the different disciplines of engineering profession and who were teaching that time in the different institutes of RPC, was organized on January 14, 2000, to prepare a feasibility study on Five-Year Engineering Programs.

On the next few months, a need assessment survey was prepared by the team on the course preference of the third year high school students and this was distributed to the thirteen selected public and private high schools in the province. The result of the survey, which is the baseline for the justification of what engineering programs will be offered, gave computer engineering the number one course preference in RPC that the students want to pursue, civil engineering, electronics and communication engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering followed, respectively.

On the 22nd meeting of RPC’s Board of Trustees, Board Resolution No.10 – 22 – 2000, a resolution offering the five-year degree courses in engineering was unanimously approved. Two of the five-year engineering programs, Civil and Mechanical Engineering, were started on school year 2000 – 2001, with only 33 qualified students selected from the then, College of Engineering and Technology under the leadership of Dr. Hermy D. Estrabo,  and the other remaining programs were subsequently implemented the following school year 2001 – 2002.

To provide a solid foundation for the five-year engineering programs, under CHED baccalaureate courses, the Institute of Engineering, now the College of Engineering of URS-Morong, was created last March 2, 2001, as per Office Memorandum No. 14 – 2001, by virtue of the Board of Trustees’ approval of Resolution No. 09 – 25 – 2001.

An Ad-Hoc Committee was created to oversee the management of the Institute of Engineering. Engineer Rachel B. Gabuya was named as the chairman of the committee and was consequently appointed on July 1, 2001 by Dr. Olivia F. De Leon, President of the then RPC, as the Acting Dean of the Institute of Engineering for the school year.

At present, College of Engineering offers six (6) engineering programs, namely: Civil, Computer, Elcetrical, Electronics, Mechanical and Geodetic Engineering.

SUBJECT: POLICIES AND STANDARDS FOR THE DEGREE OF BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN CIVIL ENGINEERING

In accordance with the pertinent provisions of Republic Act 7722 otherwise known as the “Higher Education Act of 1994” , upon the

recommendation of the technical Panel for Engineering, Technology and Architecture and by virtue of resolution No. 840 – 2006 of the Commission en banc dated December 4, 2006, for the purpose of rationalizing the undergraduate program in Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with the end view of keeping apace with the demands of global competitiveness, the following policies and standards are hereby adopted and promulgated by the Commission.

RATIONALE

Civil engineering is a profession that applies the basic principles of science in conjunction with mathematical and computational tools to solve problems associated with developing and sustaining civilized life on our planet. It is one of the broadest engineering disciplines both in terms of the range of problems that fall within its preview and in the range of knowledge required to solve these problems. Civil engineering works are generally one-of-a-kind projects, they are often grand in scale and they usually require cooperation among professionals of many different disciplines. The completion of civil engineering project involves the solution of technical problems in which information from numerous sources and myriad non-technical factors play a significant role. Some of the most common examples of civil engineering works include bridges, buildings, dams, airports, ports and harbors, highways, tower and water distribution systems. Civil engineers are concerned with flood controls, landslide, air and water pollution, and the design of facilities to withstand earthquakes and other natural hazards.

Subject: POLICIES AND STANDARDS (PS) FOR THE DEGREE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

In accordance with the pertinent provisions of Republic Act 7722 otherwise known as the “Higher Education Act of 1994” , upon the recommendation of the technical Panel for Engineering, Technology and Architecture and by virtue of resolution No. 740 – 2007 of the Commission en banc dated October 15, 2007, for the purpose of rationalizing the undergraduate program in Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with the end view of keeping apace with the demands of global competitiveness, the following policies and standards are hereby adopted and promulgated by the Commission.

Rationale

            Mechanical Engineering is a profession that concerns itself with mechanical design, energy conversion fuel and combustion technologies, heat transfer, materials, noise control and acoustics, manufacturing processes, rail transportation, automatic control, product safety and reliability, solar energy and technological impacts to society. Mechanical engineers study the behavior of materials when forces are applied to them, such as motion of solids, liquids, gases and heating and cooling of object and machines. Using these basic building blocks, engineers design space vehicles, computers, power plants, intelligence machines and robots, automobiles, trains, airplanes, furnaces and air conditioners. Mechanical engineers work on jet engine design, submarines, hot air balloons, textiles and new materials, medical and hospital equipment, and refrigerators and other home appliances. Anything that is mechanical or must interact with another machine or human being is within the broad scope of today’s and tomorrow’s mechanical engineer.
