Lecture Series Part 2: Bridging the Industry - Academe Gap


Students from various levels and programs of Chiang Kai Shek College attended the second talk in the CKS College Lecture Series, entitled: “Bridging the Industry – Academe Gap” last November 24. Aside from educating stakeholders about the trends and developments in the industry, the Lecture Series also seeks to develop identifiable sets of knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will ensure them to be prepared to face the unfamiliar challenges in the workplace. 

This lecture featured Mr. Alvin Kingson Tan, who is also a proud alumnus of CKS College. He is the president of the Fil-Chi Media Productions Inc., the company behind Chinoy TV. Mr. Tan spoke about his success, challenges, and learnings throughout his entrepreneurial journey.

According to him, companies prefer to hire graduates who have the skills to excel in today’s times. High grades, professional knowledge, and competence alone are not enough. There is also a demand for soft skills, such as the ability to communicate effectively and work seamlessly across global, multicultural teams. Teamwork, problem-solving, and self-management are skills that are seen as valuable for success in the workplace. He also emphasized the importance of the Chinese language. Chinese is now considered as an important language worldwide because of its increased use in the business world.

Lastly, he reminded the audience to never give up. It means believing in oneself and being willingto accept “failure” so that the critical skill of adaptation can be learned. It means not compromising on the most important values, and walking the walk, rather than just talking the talk. It means living the life you want and are passionate about. 

Student attendees actively raised queries and concerns during the open forum.

HRM Students Spiced Up Their Game in the Grilled Barbecue and Sauces Contest


CKS College students Mr. Harris Edric So (3rd  Year) and Mr. Pete Justin Yang (4th Year), won 2nd place in the QCNA 8: Kulinarya, Turismo, Talento, ATBP Mixed Grilled BBQ, Sauces and Garnishing Competition. With the teme “Siglo ng Bagong Taon,” the competition was held last November 25, 2017 at the Central Plaza, Eastwood City, Libis, Quezon City.

The tandem competed against students from Olivarez College, St. Scholastica’s College, St. Paul University, Quezon City, and National College of Business and Arts, Fairview. They presented their original dish, Siglong Asyarap, which is composed of marinated adobo pork belly and baby squid stuffed with tomyum and served with several sauces such as chili paste, tamarind with century egg and mango papaya salad, and black-ink squid naan bread. The entry was presented on plate made of woven pandan leaves, with the sides decorated with clam shells containing the mix of flavours included in the dish.

Harris and Pete were coached by Chef Sherril Lyn Chua.

CKS College ITE Research Awarded Best Presentation in the 2017 ICSTE


The 9th International Conference on Software Technology and Engineering (ICSTE) was held last October 27-29, 2017, at the University of Hong Kong – Graduate House. At the same time, the annual editorial board meeting of the Journal of Software (JSW) was also held. Mr. Lester Hao, CKS College Program Head of the School of Information Technology Education, presented a paper entitled Trigonometry with ProjectMEC: A Courseware and Student Performance Evaluation. The paper discussed the use of computer-aided instruction as an intervention tool in attempts to observe its effect on the performance of students in College Trigonometry. The study not only dwelled within the domain of Information Technology with the development and evaluation of the ProjectMEC courseware, but also posed implications for Mathematics Education through the integration of technology into the teaching-learning experience.

During the conference dinner, Mr. Hao was awarded the Best Presentation for the Software Design and Theory session. Moreover, the said paper was published in the Journal of Software (Vol. 12, Num. 11). The JSW is indexed by DBLP, EBSCO, DOAJ, ProQuest, and INSPEC, among others.

This achievement would not have been possible without the support of CKS College and ITE faculty members, especially Mr. Alvin Ray Estiva (CKS College ITE professor) and Dr. Arnel Fajardo (Academic Consultant for IT), who co-authored the said paper, in collaboration with student researchers Mr. Kendrick Kee and Mr. Marlon Tin. May this further enhance the research culture within CKS College!
