The Information Technology Laboratory located at the 3rd floor of the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) Building will be named after Pacific Online Systems Corporation (POSC), which donated half a million pesos for the TRANSSEFORMATION 2015 Project of the School of Sciences and Engineering (SSE).
The IT Lab, which can accommodate 35 students at any given time, will feature the latest IT equipment for the use of all UA&P students, especially for those taking up BSIT, BSBA Business Analytics, Industrial Engineering, and Applied Mathematics.
“Pacific Online Systems Corp. is a forward-thinking company, and it relies on competent IT professionals to run its operations,” says Willy Ocier, POSC Chairman and President. “It also fully supports the University of Asia and the Pacific in its endeavor to offer quality education not only in the liberal arts, but also in science and engineering.”
POSC, with its offices in Pasig City and Cebu City, is engaged in the development and management of on-line computer systems, terminals, and software for the Philippine gaming industry.
“Our company’s contribution to the construction of an I.T. lab represents our belief that technology, coupled with sound business intelligence, is the way of the future,” continued Mr. Ocier. “We believe that education is an invaluable investment whose benefits will be reaped not only by the students, but by our country as well.”
TRANSSEFORMATION 2015 aims to consolidate the offices of SSE faculty and staff, the laboratories, and the research and development facilities for its students on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors of CAS Building in line with SSE’s dream of educating the next generation of Renaissance engineers and scientists.
