Faculty members of the College of Technology (COT) and College of Engineering (COE) have started counting the days until they see the job done of helping Ethiopian professors improve on their teaching techniques in automotive technology, electrical engineering, civil technology and electronics and communication technology.
At the Technical and Vocational Education and Training Institute (TVETI), Dr. Pedro Y. Quemada and Dr. Paterno C. Fernandez teach automotive technology, Dr. Joecyn Archival takes charge of electrical engineering, Dr. Gerwine J. Medio imparts knowledge and skills in civil technology and Dr. Paul K. Zabala relates expertise in electronics and communication technology.
The professors left for Ethiopia on March 22, 2017 after having complied with requisites subject to the internal policies of the colleges in CTU Main Campus. They are expected to return after one year.
In line with the university’s international mobility strategy, the activity was agreed upon by CTU President Rosein A. Ancheta Jr. and TVETI Deputy Director for Academic Affairs on February 13, 2017.
Part of Ethiopia’s massive economic overhaul is allocating hefty budget to education, specifically providing skills trainings to professors and allowing them to earn Ph.D. in Technology Management degree. UPO
