StampNews.com is glad to inform that Philippines Postal authority issued a commemorative stamp to mark 75 years of founding of the College of Engineering. The stamp depicts the façade of the Fr. Lawrence Bunzel building with the emblem of University of San Carlos and 75years logo of the College of Engineering in the background. The item was released and put into circulation on the 8th of September.
Marking the milestone of 75 years for USC College of Engineering is an important event especially for all Carolinian engineers. Not only does it indicate the passage of time but it also signifies the maturity and quality of the University in developing and nurturing future engineers.
A salient goal of any university is to generate knowledge for public good. Expectedly, one major contributor to this knowledge generation process is the engineering college of a university where students are nurtured and trained to provide technical and innovative solutions to the everyday problems of society. Thus, an engineer often finds deeper meaning in life when they contribute to the good of society in various ways. The ultimate feat is when the engineer fully becomes the gift for the good of humanity as he or she is purposively designed to be.
The College is now more than ever poised to appropriately answer the urgent call for reforms in Philippines' educational system, which would positively impact the quality of our engineering graduates and professionals. It is mastering its innate confidence in the preparation for ASEAN regional integration and accreditation with the global standards of the Washington Accord, which governs mutual recognition of engineering qualifications and professional competence.
Coincidentally, the College also marks the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Technological Center, now known as the Fr. Lawrence Bunzel Building. This hallowed edifice is home to thousands of Carolinian engineers who have spent many poignant and nostalgic years of study and hard work in this conducive environment, well known and beloved for its cooler, greener, and quieter ambience in earlier years.
