Through the initiative of Laguna State Polytechnic University (LSPU) President, Dr. Nestor M. De Vera and the coordination of Dr. Edilberto Z. Andal , dean of the College of Industrial Education (CIT) as well in partnership with the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) the Ideation, Design, and Development (IDD) Laboratory was established at San Pablo City Campus with the objective to assist students in the execution of their designs for innovative products.
The project was materialized after a series of strategic planning, forums and meetings with stakeholders and potential partners, benchmarking, and trainings.
Technology trainings included the 3D Max Training attended by two CAD designers from LSPU-SPCC last June 18, 2015, a forum on innovation and design, and a demonstration on the use of 3D Printer by the DOST. The LSPU-DOST IDD Lab team conducted a benchmarking last July 15-17, 2015 at Bohol FabLab at Bohol Island State University, in which they acquired ideas regarding the layout of the laboratory as well as the equipment to be considered. On Nov. 25, 2015, a stakeholder’s meeting was also held together with Singaporean guests from Nanyang Polytechnic University.
The IDD Lab is already equipped with a 3D printer, as well as a laser cutting machine. One of the laboratory rooms was renovated as an extension of the IDD Laboratory.
Although the establishment is still in need of additional equipment, network with global Digital Fabrication Laboratories (FabLab) , innovative development for MSME’s, training on product prototyping as well as continual monitoring and evaluation, the university sees the IDD Lab as an asset specifically to Senior High School STEM and Arts track, and to the community at large.***
