The University of Santo Tomas, our beloved alma mater, throughout the world is one of the oldest institutions of higher learning. One hundred years ago the school educated many business leaders and leaders of the arts and our people. However, during that time the school didn’t offer courses in engineering to its students. Today the university’s Faculty of Engineering offers the whole gamut of bachelor’s degree programs in all engineering fields to cater to the ever-expanding needs for engineering skills of the emergent borderless global economy. For the past 100 years our alma mater has produced thousands of Graduates in various engineering fields who certainly participated in building the modern civilization that we now live in. To commemorate the 100 years of providing quality education in the world of engineering for business and industry the Faculty of Engineering is holding a Centennial Celebration, which culminates in a weeklong festivity, called “Engineering Week” in the week of February 13 thru 18, 2007. The Centennial Celebration officially kicks off “June 21, 2006 with a parade around the UST campus to announce the Centennial of the Faculty of Engineering.”
