Senator Ramon Magsaysay, Jr., the son of the former Philippine President Ramon Magsaysay, spoke about the importance of Enterpreneurship in the Engineering profession during the 62nd Annual General Membership Convention of the Institute of Electronic Engineers of the Philippines (IECEP), Inc. held at the Philippine Trade and Training Center, Pasay City, November 22.
Sen. Magsaysay said that if only engineers will put innovation to entreprenuership, then that’s already something since it would not only open new doors of opportunity for new technology but it will also provide jobs for the masses. He also presented some of the famous Filipino inventors who contributed a major milestone in the Philippine technological industry by which one of them is Diosdado “Dado” Banatao who is considered to be the Filipino Bill Gates and the Father of Philippine Semiconductor Industry.
He further exclaimed that at least 15% of Electronics Engineers should engage in enterprise as this would make many jobs.
More than a thousand of Professional Electronics Engineers (PECEs), Electronics Engineers (ECEs), and Electronics Technicians (ECTs) have attended the first day of the three-day convention.
He ended his keynote speech with a quote that “…Entrepreneurship should be in the heart of every Electronics Engineers!” (AAP)
