The University of the East (UE) College of Computer Studies and Systems (CCSS) in UE Manila has signed an agreement designating the UE CCSS as Lego Educational Robotics and Advanced Computer Technical Training Center.

The deal, which is part of the UE CCSS’ social responsibility efforts and was signed by the University with REF Marketing, calls for UE to open its computer laboratories and provide trainers-professors for the training of elementary and junior and senior high school students from different public and private schools using educational robotic toys.

The student-trainees will essentially be introduced to computer programming through modular building platforms and consequently be trained in rudimentary problem-solving, analytical thinking and robotics.

The UE CCSS, a Commission on Higher Education-certified Center of Excellence in Information Technology Education, will host and train some 300 such students from various schools.

The memorandum of agreement sealing the partnership between UE and REF Marketing for this venture was signed on June 16, 2017, by UE President and Chief Academic Officer Ester A. Garcia and Mr. Erwin M. Aramburo, Marketing Consultant at REF Marketing.
