EESC is a company that strives to bring you the best in engineering education through publications, workshops, presentations and consultations. We have acquired Bonamy Publishing, a publishing company that delivered high quality pre-engineering titles. We are dedicated to the advancement of the engineering profession.
Mission Statement: To provide information resources to promote, guide, and stimulate interest in science and engineering.

Vision: To diversify the types of engineers in society by exposing large numbers of students to the capacity they will have to benefit society.
We are very serious about promoting engineering education and strive for the best customer service. We take pride in getting all orders out or responding to inquiries within 24 hrs of our receipt.


Celeste Baine ( is a biomedical engineer, the director of the Engineering Education Service Center and the award-winning author of Is There an Engineer Inside You: A Comprehensive Guide to Career Decisions in Engineering, The Fantastical Engineer: A Thrillseeker’s Guide to Careers in Theme Park Engineering, High Tech Hot Shots: Careers in Sports Engineering and most recently, Teaching Engineering Made Easy: A Friendly Introduction to Engineering Activities for Middle School Teachers. She is the author of the engineering section of the World Book Encyclopedia's Science Year and the principal trainer for the Academy of Engineering LEGO laboratory. She won the 2005 Norm Augustine Award for Engineering Communications. The award is given to an engineer who has demonstrated the capacity for communicating the excitement and wonder of engineering. She also won the 2004 American Society for Engineering Education's Engineering Dean Council's Award for the Promotion of Engineering Education and Careers. In addition, she is also listed on the National Engineers Week Website as one of 50 engineers you should meet!

UP Engineering offers 200 graduate scholarships
Last updated 00:08am (Mla time) 03/22/2007

MANILA, Philippines -- The College of Engineering of the University of
the Philippines in Diliman is offering more than 200 graduate
scholarships worth more than P120 million for school year 2007-2008,
an official told Wednesday.

In an interview, Associate Dean Norberto Que said the scholarships
were an attempt to reach the UNESCO benchmark of 340 research
scientists and engineers per million population, as the country only
has 48.

"We need engineers with advanced degrees to make science and
technology work for Filipinos, from disaster mitigation to poverty
alleviation, from agriculture to semiconductor industries. We need
them to ensure a sustainable environment and affordable energy for
the future and to produce indigenous technologies to better our
lives," he said.

Realizing that the high cost of advanced degrees (P600,000 for a
master's degree and P1.2 million for a doctorate), Que said the
scholarships have privileges that include book allowances,
transportation allowance, tuition and fees, thesis (dissertation)
grants, with monthly stipends of P8,000 to P12,000 for
master's programs and P9,000 to P20,000 for doctorate programs.

Que lamented the sad state of advanced degrees in science and
technology in the Philippines, relating it to the country's slow
economic growth. He said that instead of engaging in "high value-
added economic activities," the country's industries participated in
activities that resulted in "low economic contribution" like call

He noted that of the 50,000 graduates of engineering courses every
year, only one in five would pass the government's licensure
exams. "And each time we produce 1 MS graduate, Vietnam produces 6,
Thailand produces 25, and Singapore produces 200," he said.

Que said that of the 1,713 colleges and universities in the country,
1,538 were privately owned. This, he said, made for great dependence
on tuition, making would-be scientists shy away from research and

"Not many proceed to graduate studies, especially in engineering, as
most would rather start working and earn a living," he said.

He said the college's offering of scholarships was just part of its
plan to attain a "critical mass" of holders of advanced degrees for
the academe, government, and industry, in support of the National
Science and Technology Program and the Medium-Term Development Plan.

"The target is 318 MS and 66 PhD students per year starting this year
until we reach 1,140 MS and 350 PhD students per year in 2016," he

"This upgrading of the graduate academic and research and development programs is also our way of developing a culture of R&D in the Philippines," he added.

Those who seek to apply for the scholarships may visit for more details.

Que said the research thrusts of the college were in: advanced
materials; alternative and renewable energy; biotechnology;
construction design, systems, and materials; disaster mitigation;
environment; high value-added processes; information and
communication technology, particularly pervasive computing;
integrated coastal management; Internet connectivity to public
schools; knowledge-based technology; mechatronics and productivity robotics; microelectronics; and nanotechnology.
