CHED Center of Excellence in Agricultural Engineering

Member of the  ERDT Consortium

In April 2007, a consortium of eight engineering institutions in the country was created to implement the Engineering Research and Development for Technology (ERDT) Program. Led by the University of the Philippines in Diliman, the other members of the consortium are Central Luzon State University (CLSU), the Ateneo de Manila University, the De LaSalle University, the Mapua Institute of Technology, the University of San Carlos, the Mindanao State University, and the University of the Philippines at Los Banos (UPLB). The graduate program in agricultural engineering is being offered in two universities: CLSU and UPLB.

The ERDT Consortium Objective & Scholarship

The ERDT is a consortium of eight-member universities in the Philippines that offer mature Master’s and doctoral degrees in various engineering fields. 

The ERDT is created to deliver high impact researches aligned with the country’s National Science and Technology Plan (NSTP) and the Medium-Term Development Plan (MTDP), to attain a critical mass of MS and PhD graduates, to upgrade the qualifications of practicing engineers, and to develop a culture of Research and Development (R&D).

To date, CLSU ERDT program has awarded more than a hundred scholarship grants in the MS and PhD degree programs.
