The Equipment Manufacturing Center aims to provide globally competitive Agro-Industrial Machineries, Equipment, Pats and Service that would improve the quality of living of stakeholders/end-users. The center, in partnership with private institutions, has established the Equipment Manufacturing Cluster in Region 2 to foster fabrication and inventiveness in the region. The University made an agreement with the Department of Science and Technology for the implementation of the project titled “Upgrading, Pilot Testing, and Commercialization of the Developed Malunggay Leaves and Turmeric Post-Harvest Processing Machines by the Equipment Manufacturing Center (EMC). The DOST provides support and assistance to the university on EMC-2 that adopted the unique strategy from MIRDC to improve productivity and competitiveness of MSMEs in the Metals and Engineering in the region called CREAMM (Clustering of Regional Enterprises for Agro-industrial Machinery and Parts Manufacturing).
