The ASEAN University Network / Southeast Asia Engineering Education Development Network (AUN/SEED-Net) has co-organized this regional conference on Electrical and Electronics Engineering in cooperation with Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST). This conference is a platform to share the recent research trends and experiences in regional common issues as well as to publicize research work of AUN/SEED-Net members.
Among the Philippine delegation, MSU-IIT has the most number of research papers presented (10) and was the largest. UP-Diliman, De La Salle University and MSU-IIT are the only AUN/SEED-Net member institutions from the Philippines.
MSU-IIT’s Electronics Engineering emerged victorious in the 2016 Bit the BEES (Best Electronics Engineering Students) Interscholastic Quiz Show Regional Eliminations during the first Junior IECEP – IBC Students Summit held on September 23, 2016 at the Institute Gym.
