The promise of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, together with the Computer Engineering Department under the College of Engineering, of continuous academic excellence is yet again to be proven as the Computer Research and Engineering Symposium (CoRES) enters its third year. The event will be spearheaded by the PUP Computer Engineering Department Faculty along with the Senior Class of the department. Leveraging the quality of life, visualizing better futures, realizing ICT Apps’ potentials – is what this year’s symposium claims. Bannering the theme: “Redefining ICT: Reimagining Futures – Redesigning Life”. The event will be on February 5, 6 and 7 at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines.

CoRES remains to be an annual event organized to promote Information and Communication Technology (ICT) awareness throughout the metro through a number of seminars, researches and exhibits – an objective that the Information and Communication Technology Conference (ICTCon), of which CoRES is formerly known as for eight consecutive years, both shares.

For a decade, it has been an avenue for students having the privilege to study the different fields of ICT to gather for them, share their knowledge about such fields, hear from IT experts, get updated about new technologies and furthermore – imagine.
