The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering Special Applications Laboratory (SAL) received 15 Fujitsu MCU Starter Kits from LEAR. These kits will be used by the students for their research and design related to sensing and controls. The handing over of these kits took place last July 28, 2017 at the Special Applications Laboratory at the Bunzel Building.
The partnership with LEAR and DEEE SAL was established by then ECE Program Chair, Engr. Joseph Karl Salva and Engr. Julius Jai Calzada of LEAR. The donation of the kits is not the only support extended by the company. This is a continuous activity in which LEAR provides materials and other forms of support while students are doing their research. The objective was to make the thesis of student relevant to Industry and to produce at least two papers within one academic year.
