5. Legal Basis of the Program

In July 2012, the CHED had issued CMO No. 37 series of 2012 requiring all Higher Education
Institutions (HEIs) offering engineering degree programs to shift to Outcomes Based Education

(OBE) system with its full implementation by year 2016-17. Hence, in compliance with CMO
No. 37 s. 2012 and to cope up with the current and forthcoming challenges of globalization,
the BS in Agricultural Engineering curriculum offered in the College of Engineering of the
Central Luzon State University (CLSU-CEn), for it to become more globally recognized and
competitive, needs also to be revitalized and must have some credible innovations.

The proposal of the Department of Agricultural Engineering to revise, enhance and align to
Outcome Based Education (OBE) the curriculum BS in Agricultural Engineering (BSAEn) and
rename it to Bachelor of Science in Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (BSABE) was
approved by the CLSU Board of Regents during its 201st meeting held on April 16, 2015 at
CHED Central Office through BOR Resolution No. 13- 2015. With this approval is the
renaming also of the Department of Agricultural Engineering to Department of Agricultural
and Biosystems Engineering (DABE).

The AE program was awarded Level IV Phase 1 status for the period October 1, 2014 to
September 30, 2015 by the Accrediting Agency for Chartered Colleges and Universities in
the Philippines (AACCUP)

6. Features of the BSABE Program

As an OBE aligned program, the framework that was initially approved by the department for
its proper implementation starting the first semester of AY 2015-16 is shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1. The CLSU CEn OBE Framework

The framework ensures proper alignment of the Vision and Mission of the university, Goals of
the College of Engineering, Objectives of the DABE and the Program Educational Objectives
(PEOs) of the BSABE program. In the CLSU Strategic Plan 2015-2040, the new vision and mission
of the university are stated as:

VISION

CLSU as a world-class National University for science and technology in agriculture and allied
fields.

MISSION

CLSU shall develop globally competitive, work-ready, socially-responsible and empowered


human resources who value life-long learning; and to generate, disseminate, and apply
knowledge and technologies for poverty alleviation, environmental protection, and sustainable
development.

Likewise, the newly approved BSABE program, the proposal included the following statements
relative to the Goals of the College of Engineering, Objectives of the DABE, the Program
Educational Objectives (PEOs) and the Program or Student Outcomes (SOs)
