FIVE UST engineers have joined an elite registry that allows members to practice within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

The title “ASEAN Engineer” was given to industrial engineers Joehanna Ngo, director of the University’s Quality Management Office; Juanito Chan, chair of the Faculty of Engineering’s Industrial Engineering Department; Prof. Nancy Eleria; and Prof. Marilyn Mabini, former dean of Engineering. Civil engineer Dolores Cleopas of the Faculty of Engineering rounded out the list.

They were inducted to the ASEAN Engineering Register during an international conference of Southeast Asian engineers in Jakarta, Indonesia late last year.

The University now has six ASEAN Engineers.

Quality Management Office Assistant Director Nestor Ong was the first to join the registry in 2012.

The recognition is given to engineers in the Southeast Asian region who have achieved “operational excellence in the field of engineering.”

Nominees are evaluated based on their professional practice, educational profile, research engagements, and experience.

The AER was founded in 1998 to facilitate the mobility of engineers within the ASEAN Free Trade Area, in line with the liberalization of professional services in the ASEAN and the World Trade Organization. Lord Bien G. Lelay
