To help mold and develop the next generation of engineers, NGCP continues to hold facility tours for university students from different parts of the country.
Recently, several universities completed tours in various NGCP facilities: the Tarlac State University at NGCP’s Mexico Substation, Batangas State University at Laoag Substation, University of Nueva Caceres at Naga Substation, Mindanao State University-General Santos City Campus at Toril Substation, University of the East-Recto at Bauang Substation, and Mindanao State University-Marawi Campus at Baloi Substation.
More than 400 engineering students from these universities participated in the facility tours, which included a walkthrough of NGCP’s substation operations as well as presentations on NGCP’s critical role and contribution to the power industry.
“We are more than happy to host young minds at our facilities so they can see for themselves the everyday operations of NGCP. Understanding the importance of power transmission in the energy system, and how NGCP contributes to the country’s economic development is important to understanding the energy industry,” said NGCP. “We also want to showcase the capability of our engineers and other technical staff, and we hope to inspire them as future engineers,” added the company.
NGCP expects to conduct more facility tours for university students in the coming months.
