  7. To serve as an instrument in the building of the Church and Society
Objectives

Objectives

The UST Faculty of Engineering holds a strong commitment to the pursuit of truth and to the formation of technically competent engineers imbued with Christian values. In line with this commitment, the Faculty pursues three objectives.

First, the Faculty aims to enable the engineering student to achieve maximum professional competence which his aptitude and native intelligence will allow. The UST has spared no expense in procuring adequate instructional facilities as well as in selecting competent faculty staff in order to achieve this.

Second, the Faculty seeks to develop in its students an incorruptible sense of professional ethics and the right social conscience based on a strong faith in God. In this direction, the Faculty is supported by curricula which extend beyond purely technical and engineering courses to include theology, values and ethics.

Third, the Faculty strives to inculcate in its community interest in the natural arts, culture and heritage, and an active concern for the environment. This is manifest in the balanced curriculum content and in the wholesome atmosphere for extra-curricular affairs that the Faculty and the University as a whole can speak of.

Patron

Blessed Jordan of Saxony

Feast Day: February 15

Blessed Jordan of Saxony came from a noble German family. He finished his studies at the University of Paris, where he met the newly established Dominican Order founded by St. Dominic de Guzman.

Inspired by Reginald of Orleans, he joined the Order to finally fulfill God’s spiritual calling. Shortly after Saint Dominic’s death on August 6, 1221, he was elected as the Master General of the Order, which was on its sixth year.

Known for his charisma, it was known that the people were never the same again after their encounter with this Dominican Preacher.  Jordan certainly had the gift, the energy, and the ability to challenge one’s thoughts, which encouraged the people to contemplate their existence and understand the Word of the Lord.

Despite his strict disciplinarian values which he was known for, many still saw Blessed Jordan as someone overflowing with kindness. While he was around the town teaching, many people were drawn to him. One of the notable people who became a part of the Order was Albertus Magnus,  who was later on honored as a Doctor of the Church.

On his way to Palestine, he died in a shipwreck in 1357. Blessed Jordan of Saxony was venerated by Pope Leo XII in 1825.
