The Technological Institute of the Philippines (T.I.P.) recently held a joint activity with Siemens, Inc. to provide its academic community and industry partners a more comprehensive outlook on a wide range of digital technologies in the fourth industrial revolution.
T.I.P., through its Technopreneurship and Collaborative Applied Research (TechnoCoRe) thrust, partnered with Siemens, Inc. for a “Digital Industry Experience Technology Exhibit and Learning Sessions,” which began on February 16 until March 6, 2023.
The technology company first featured the same exhibit during the “Industrial Digital Transformation Congress” organized by the Department of Trade and Industry-Board of Investments (DTI-BOI) in December 2022.
Siemens, Inc. shared insights on the Future of Industrial Automation, Digital Transformation and Industry 4.0, Totally Integrated Automation, Edge Technology, Digital Twin, Virtual Commissioning, and Automated Guided Vehicles.
“Schools play a significant role in familiarizing stakeholders on how these new technologies work, based on actual demonstrations and discussions by the experts, and how they can impact Philippine industries,” T.I.P. industry relations and senior project manager Dr. Therese May Alejandrino said.
With the digital twin technology, for example, Alejandrino noted its potential to “continuously revolutionize how industries design, improve, manufacture and distribute their products and services,” thereby increasing employee productivity and company revenues.
T.I.P. is staying abreast of upcoming technologies, thus, it is regularly reviewing laboratory development plans for the continuous improvement of its academic facilities and equipment. Upgrading of facilities is essential to better prepare students for the latest technology drivers.
Jesus ‘TJ’ Tanchuco III, regional product manager for Siemens Inc., talked about how lines keep getting blurred between the virtual and physical worlds under Industry 4.0 that it behooves any organization to adjust its systems and processes in response to new challenges.
Siemens is actively working with the government, the academe, and the private sector to support the digital transformation journey of manufacturers in the Philippines. The company aims to help unlock the potential of industries by promoting Industry 4.0 technologies.
A total of 213 participants composed of students, academic officers, and industry practitioners attended the 15 learning sessions and demonstrations held at the TechnoCoRe building of T.I.P. Quezon City campus.
As one of the top engineering research schools in the Philippines, T.I.P. has always embraced research and development projects and joint activities to further equip its students, educators, and industry partners with the necessary skills and business acumen relevant to the government’s goals towards industrial digital transformation.
