Featured article star.jpg The National Engineering Center (NEC) is a related yet independent unit of the UP College of Engineering. The NEC is under the jurisdiction of the University of the Philippines System and provides research, consultancy, and continuing education services in the engineering and related fields. Whilst the UP COE is a unit purely dedicated to academic pursuit, the NEC serves industry and Philippine Government institutions in need of engineering solutions.

The NEC is housed within the Alfredo Juinio Hall (formerly the National Engineering Center Building), located beside UP COE's Melchor Hall along Osmeña Avenue. As of 2006, the UP College of Engineering Dean, Dr. Rowena Cristina Guevara, also serves as the center's Executive Director.

From the Oblation Plaza article.

The Oblation is a concrete statue by Filipino artist Guillermo E. Tolentino. Depicting a man facing upward with arms outstretched, symbolizing selfless offering of oneself to his country, it serves as the iconic symbol of the University of the Philippines.

The original sculpture is now at the UP Main Library.
