The COVID-19 Response Team (CRT) was formed under the leadership of Dean Ferdinand G. Manegdeg. Fourteen projects by Engineering faculty and researchers have been assessed and approved by the CRT as an urgent response to the crisis. These projects were made possible through the support from generous donors and benefactors who coursed their hard-earned donations through UPERDFI and UPAE.
Together, we have helped raise funds to support the UP Engineering faculty and students, build infrastructure and facilities, and boost R&D and innovation for the betterment of the country.
