Construction of the new IE Building started last April 16, 2015. The new IE Building (see photo) was just recently inaugurated last July 12, 2016. The IE Building features one lecture hall that can accommodate a maximum of 60 students; in addition, two new classrooms were built to accommodate a maximum of 30 students. The old room# IE 101 and IE 102 were renovated and improved. All these five (5) rooms were equipped with white boards, lecterns, air conditioner, LCD projectors (for room# 100 and 101), HD flat screen 60″ TV (for room# 103 and 104), HD flat screen 42″ TV (for room# 102) and CCTV security cameras.
The Industrial Engineering Department makes sure that its students experience optimal learning aligned with Honor and Excellence. One of the ways the department sees this objective achieved is by providing the most appropriate classroom environment for its future industrial engineers. The department currently offers a large lecture hall, a computer laboratory, and three classrooms for small class sizes. These rooms are fully air conditioned and each are equipped with a flat screen monitor or a wireless projector for presentations. Each room also has ergonomically designed lighting systems for maximized student participation. The computer laboratory can hold more than twenty students and is complete with software needed in Industrial Engineering courses offered by the department.
Being known by its seclusion from the rest of the departments in UPLB, IED installs CCTVs throughout the vicinity to ensure security of its students and staff. The cameras also promote integrity of the students in their academic performance reminding them that Honor comes before Excellence.
