As part of the Information Technology (IT) Week, students attended multidisciplinary workshops at the computer labs of 6/F Finster Building last Nov. 23, 2017.
Catering to IT and non-IT students, the event was an initiative of the Computer Science (CS) Cluster, and the faculty served as speakers for the workshops.
Patrick Paasa gave emphasis on game design in the Game Development Workshop. Katrina Cecilia Corro headed the Multimedia Workshop. Adrian Ablazo also shared his expertise in the Graphics Workshop.
Patrick Paasa shared how these workshops are a way to share knowledge to students.
“It’s part of IT week. Last year kasi nag IT week rin kami. It is a way of giving back. Ang ating mga students kasi may mga subjects na ganito na ang other schools probably wala. It is a way of giving back para ma-spread pud,” Paasa said.
Pamela Ravasco, CS division representative, shared how the workshops were an avenue for learning.
“We had graphics, multimedia and game development workshops by our CS Faculty. The workshops are the best part of the IT Week because the students get to learn what they want right away.”
Ravasco also added how the event gave awareness on how IT can make an impact.
“This week is a genuine experience for IT students inside and outside of this university. This event [IT Week], endorsed by CHED and DepEd, was made to prepare [students] of what is new in the IT industry, SHS to open their minds regarding the IT field, and non-IT students to let them appreciate how IT can make lives better.”
Other events for the rest of the IT Week include success stories talks, career talks and programming contests. IT Week is set to culminate on Nov. 25, 2017.
