Students of De La Salle University-Dasmariñas' College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology (CEAT) have been tapped to build an electronic boat for the use of the country's tourism industry.
In a freshly forged partnership, private firm JMI Green Corporation signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) with administrators from the CEAT to express their commitment to this joint endeavor. Under the agreement, the e-boat will be designed and built by engineering students in collaboration with CEAT faculty.
The partnership is an example of strong collaboration between the academe and the industry and also emphasizes the University's thrust to promote greener alternatives to existing modes of transport to combat the effects of climate change.
Asst. Vice Chancellor for Research Dr. Emmanuel F. Calairo led the MoA signing between DLSU-D's CEAT and JMI Green Corporation. The event was witnessed by CEAT faculty members led by college dean, Engr. Rizaldy de Armas and representatives from the Intellectual Property Division under the University Research Office (URO).
