Research & Development (R&D) Support Services
The Research and Development (R&D) Support Services of UP NEC compiles information about existing research and possible research information from the different departments or centers of the COE. It tracks and reports on all NEC research projects. It compiles information on current research facilities and equipment from each research unit and coordinates the efficient use of such facilities and equipment. The R&D division aims to initiate new research groups and to facilitate the joining of new members into existing research groups. Information dissemination on current research and research opportunities to COE members are done through the marketing arm of NEC. It continuously updates information and contacts for research funding. The R&D publishes research results information in NEC managed periodicals and technical bulletins like the Philippine Engineering Journal and the UP COE/NEC Technical Bulletin. The Philippine Engineering Journal (PEJ) is a semi-annual peer-reviewed publication of original works, reviews, discussions, and technical papers in Engineering. The UP COE/NEC Technical Bulletin serves as a medium for disseminating the results of research and development activities undertaken by faculty, students, research staff and alumni of the College of Engineering and National Engineering Center, through the publication of technical articles, notes and research briefs in all fields of engineering.
