Wesleyan opens campus to public

February 10, 2020

Wesleyan Open House commences today as part of the highlights of the 74th Founding Anniversary Celebration. This event features college and high school students’ projects and research outputs and the opening of a mini museum.

The College of Engineering and Computer Technology showcases researches such as Forest Alarm System and Tracking (FAST), Smart Insole Monitoring System (SIMS), and i-Crop, among others.

FAST is a devise used to track forest fire and puts it off, if it can, but immediately and quickly reports it to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) if it is a big one and beyond its capacity to control.

SIMS is a devise connected to a pair of footwear; it monitors heartbeat and records heart rate. This can be worn by people who have heart diseases and by anybody who wants to gather heart rate data for medical purposes. According to the Engineering students who conducted the research, this devise can also be worn by people when performing various forms of physical exercise.

i-Crop is a controlled indoor cultivation of rice by providing an environment that would enable higher yield and quality of rice. Since it is grown indoor, the rice plant grows healthy and safe because it uses organic fertilizers and zero application of pesticides on the plant.
