02 September 2014, "CET alumni, headed by the CE Batch '85, spearheads the renovation of a lecture room and comfort rooms in Gusaling Villegas"
With its 30th (Pearl) anniversary of graduation at PLM next year, the Batch '85 of BS Civil Engineering graduates wanted to leave a lasting legacy to their alma mater through a donation by way of the renovation of essential facilities in PLM.
Starting with the GV-310 by the first week of October and expected to finish by early 2015, the inauguration shall coincide with the PLM's Golden anniversary next year.
The batch representatives are shown above formally presenting to the University President the design concepts which were developed since July by the Pearl jubilarian-civil engineers. The project, which is to be undertaken directly by the CET alumni, headed by the CE Batch '85, is expected to cost around P2.4-Million.

Inspired by the earlier donation by Accenture of the Ideas Exchange Room (IER) where its planning and coordination meetings were conducted since July 2014, the CE Alumni Group is poised to replicate this undertaking for the benefit of the scholars.
As with the IER, the CE Alumni Group is coordinating this closely with the PLM Alumni Association, Inc. headed by lawyer Omar Francisco. The room adjacent to the IER was chosen as the location for the innovative lecture room.
