De La Salle University is strengthening its collaboration with ECAM La Salle in Lyon, France, through the development of strategic programs, including the offer of the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME) triple degree program.
Representatives of ECAM La Salle, Director General Didier Desplanche and Program Manager for Pedagogy Naomi Reiner, visited the DLSU campus in Manila on June 27 to meet with the university’s top administrators led by the President of DLSU, Fr. Bernard Oca FSC as well as members of the Gokongwei College of Engineering (GCOE).
The signing ceremony for the Memorandum of Understanding between the two Lasallian institutions took place at the Villavicencio Boardroom of DLSU Henry Sy, Sr. Hall, with Desplance signing for ECAM La Salle and Br. Bernie for SJM.
With the unique MPME triple degree program, students have the opportunity to obtain the BSMS degree at De La Salle University and their Master’s degree at ECAM La Salle, where they will obtain the title of engineer in France. There are two specializations of the MSME Triple Degree Program: one is Sustainable and Smart Production and the other is Sustainable Energy.
During their meeting, members of the two institutions also discussed the direction of their collaborative activities. The SJM Vice President’s Office for External Relations and Internationalization, the GCOE Dean’s Office and the Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) hosted the event.
ECAM La Salle delegates and some ME teachers also paid a courtesy visit to the Counselor for Cooperation and Cultural Affairs of the French Embassy in the Philippines, Marc Piton.
