Research Agenda

EECE Research Agenda for SY 2014-2015 to 2016-2017

The School of Electrical, Electronics, and Computer Engineering draws strategic plans to implement and execute research initiatives covering the period of SY 2014-2015 to 2016-2017.


I. Research Initiatives Factors

   The research agenda of EECE (2014) is based on the following factors:

   Factor #1. Academic-Research Profile:  School Orientation and Human Resource Competencies

   This factor takes into consideration the nature of the school’s programs and the commonly shared professional attributes of the faculty members (faculty-researcher).

  • Academic Qualifications
  • Level of Research Competency
  • Areas of Interest

   Factor #2. Institutional Strategic Initiatives: Research Opportunities in I GO FOR VALUE (Mapua Initiatives 2010-2020)

   This factor fundamentally addresses various research opportunities in each of the strategic initiative of the Institute.

  • I – Information & Communication Technology
  • G – Geographic Expansion
  • O – OJT (International)
  • F – Foreign Students
  • O – On-line Learning/ Outcomes-Based Ed
  • R – Research on renewable energy / Reduction of Carbon Footprint
  • V – Vertical Articulation
  • A – Accreditation
  • L – Licensure
  • U – University Status
  • E – English as a Competitive Edge

   Factor #3. National Higher Education Research Agenda 2 (NHERA 2- 2009 – 2018)

   This factor supports activities that consider the following disciplines on research:

  • Education
  • Health and safety
  • Information and communication technology
  • Engineering
  • Environmental science


II. Strategic Plan on Research Initiatives


  1. Alignment of EECE research initiatives to the initiative of faculty development committee
    • Development of faculty research agenda for EECE relevant to research initiatives
    • Appointment of members of the EECE Research Committee
  2. Request for Institutional support to EECE research activities (project development, funding, paper presentations, and faculty development seminar-workshops)
  3. Implementation of relevant provisions of EECE research initiatives to student research projects (i.e. thesis and other research outputs)
  4. Institutionalization of EECE Research Agenda
  5. Paper presentation (local and/or international)
  6. Paper publication (in-house, local and/or international journal)


III. Priority Research Areas

      The following are the priority research areas of the School of EECE based on Research Initiatives Factor 1, 2, and 3

  • Information and Communications Technology (ICT)
    1. Applications Development
    2. IT Solutions
    3. RF and Microwave Systems
    4. Wireless Communications Systems

    7. Power System Engineering (PSE)
      1. Renewable Energy Sources
      2. Automation
      3. Control Systems
      4. Etc.
    8. Microelectronics
      1. Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC)
      2. Biomedical Electronics
      3. Health and Safety Devices
      4. IC Design for Technology Driven Projects
      5. Etc.
