The National Engineering Center (NEC) was established on January 27, 1978 as a distinct and separate unit of the University of the Philippines (UP) by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 1295.
The creation was a response to the country’s continuing efforts at national development, which require progressive and adequate utilization and diffusion of technology, as well as a steady and expanding supply of technical manpower with expertise in the various fields of technology and engineering.
The NEC was envisioned to provide a venue for continuing interaction among government, industry, and the university which will be beneficial to all concerned and, at the same time, serve the interests of national development.
