The College of Engineering, Computer Studies and Technology (CECST) spearheaded the Technical Training on Arduino Programming dated September 4-5, 2018 with Mr. Jhon S. Atienza , Automation and Training Director from RSA Automation and Robotics Services whose expertise includes: Android Development , Mobile Computing , Cyber Security , PLC Programming using Siemens LOGO Siemens S7200, Arduino Programming and some of the widely used technology such as: RFID , Sensor , Pneumatics , Semiconductor, Electronic , Automation and Mechatronics Technology.
On September 4, 2018 Registration of Participants starts from 7:30 am to 8:00 am. The Opening Program follows after the registration with Ms. Henz Antoinette Q. Yusico, one of the CECST English Instructors as the emcee. During the short opening program Engr. Jessie A. Demontaño, CECST Assistant Dean and BSCS Faculty Member gave his welcome message. Ms. Born Christian A. Isip, Proponent of the Activity and BSCS Program Chair explains the rationale of the Training. The Extension Coordinator, Engr. Divine Grace N. Loren then introduces the participants followed by the Presentation of the Resource Speaker introduced by the emcee.
Right after the fifteen (15)-minute opening program the expert started his lecture on microcontrollers and robotics in order for the participants to have a grasp of Arduino as the widely used microcontroller in programming an automated and embedded systems. When the lecture was done, the resource speaker distributes one microcontroller device for each participant instructing them to connect to the desktop or laptop computer via usb extension port prior to the hands-on activities to be performed by the participants based on the instruction given by the expert. Except for the three (3) BSCS faculty members of the College, majority of the participants do not have basic experience in the use of Arduino Microcontroller. It was difficult for participants to start the initial task/activity despite the step by step instruction given. The participant from St. Theresa College received a cash incentive of two hundred pesos (Php 200.00) from the speaker being the first to present and generate the correct programming output. After the completion of the first task, it was evident that the participants are very much willing to learn and they consider the activities as new ICT educational challenges of which their energy was sustained based on the outputs they have successfully generated throughout the sessions. The training is anchored on the University’s Vision in Developing Renewable Energy by designing new and efficient technology using Arduino Microcontroller. The training ended with new knowledge and skills gained by the participants who were logically challenged and at the same time enjoyed with their various outputs. The activity proponent, Born Christian A. Isip distributes the Training Evaluation Sheets after the two-day technical training for the participants to rate, write and suggest on the training being conducted.
