Mapua School of CEGE launches Crowdpoint app

The School of Civil, Environmental, and Geological Engineering (CEGE) launched last August 14 a new mobile-based application, Crowdpoint. 

Developed by a team of researchers and engineers led by CEGE dean Dr. Francis Aldrine Uy, Crowdpoint is a community-based social networking app that combines geospatial information and civil systems and utilizes the power of ICT, GPS, crowdsourcing, and mapping technology in the delivery of public information. The app is a brainchild of Dr. Uy derived from his studies on geospatial information and civil systems. 

OBE pioneer lauds Mapúa for leadership in OBE implementation in Philippine higher education

Internationally recognized pioneer of Outcomes-Based Education (OBE), Dr. William Spady, praised Mapúa Institute of Technology and its leaders for their openness to learn and implement OBE saying that Mapúa is in a leadership role in implementing OBE in higher education. 

"This is a unique circumstance in my experience with this concept in the world because higher education institutions are driving this reform rather than K-12 schools which is the emphasis in the United States," he said.
