As an organization, UP CIEM puts value into delivering quality events to utilize its member's capabilities. Its foundation is built on the core of its values, which includes the use of industrial engineering knowledge to provide service and extend it to the maximum. This pursuit led to the birth of IEshikawa.
The first IEshikawa was held in the year 2005, with participants coming from different universities and colleges from Luzon. The event featured workshops useful for the IE profession and relevant talks from esteemed experts in the industrial engineering field. As the first was successful, IEshikawa has since become an annual activity. What used to be a proposed concept by several members of UP CIEM now caters to growing numbers of participants.
As Industrial Engineers, the organization is naturally equipped to seek improvements, thus the event's continuous growth. This year, now on its 12th, IEshikawa expects to become the most-prestigious summit for the Industrial Engineering community, providing a more personalized experience to the participants that imparts deeper nationalistic understanding in Industrial Engineering.
Industrial Engineers have a role in working hand in hand with the Philippine Government- the nation's backbone, to move the nation forward. This year's talks and workshops are geared towards helping future IEs create a nation with an effective and efficient governing body.
A nation built with efficiency and effectiveness.
This is the vision of the Filipino Industrial Engineer. This is our hiraya.
