CAS, CECT conduct student orientations

August 30, 2017


The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) and the College of Engineering and Computer Technology (CECT) simultaneously conducted student orientations on August 30.

CAS Dean Michael Fronda cited the famous Confucian adage “Give man a fish and he will live for a day but teach man how to fish and he will live for a lifetime”, saying that the college goes beyond that by producing graduates who know “how to grow fish”.

He explained that CAS responds to what the global community expects every professional should be and that is imbibing the concept of sustainability.

CAS held its event at the University Amphitheater.

On the other hand, at the University Gymnasium, Dr. Ryan John De Lara, dean of CECT, discussed the ten most in-demand jobs today, topped by Information Technology (IT) He said IT students made the right choice because after graduation, they will be employed easily.

He boosted the Engineering students’ morale by saying that most of the highest paid jobs are in the Engineering field.

He also repeated what University President Pacifico B. Aniag said during the recently held New Students General Assembly about putting in their resumes that they are products of “a Methodist autonomous university”.

He bared that the President is in the process of issuing an executive order to formally merge the College of Engineering and the College of Computer Science to be officially called the College of Engineering and Computer Technology. ###
