Founded in 2006, MRSP has grown its membership nationwide and include companies, institutions, schools, professionals and students. MRSP conducted technical seminars, organized mechatronics, and robotics competitions attended national and international conferences, linked industry and schools, to mention among others, some of its activities. In addition, MRSP developed close working relationships with some government institution and eventually became formal partners with TESDA and DOST-MIRDC. TESDA provided an office space for MRSP and was given the task to develop the Training Regulations (TR) for Mechatronics and Automation NC II, NC III and NC IV. Training Regulations for II and III has already been promulgated while NC IV will follow very soon. Currently, MRSP is also developing the TR for NC V. MRSP played a major role in the training and establishment of Mechatronics and Automation Training Center in TESDA and later the establishment of HRDI-PKTT in Taguig City.
Last June 16, 2015, MRSP reorganized and elected its new officers. On June 18, MRSP signed a partnership MOA with DOST-MIRDC to establish an Advanced Mechatronics and Automation Laboratory at MIRDC’s facility in Taguig City. This Laboratory facility that is funded by DOST is currently being constructed. A budget provisioned for advanced equipment and instruments for research purposes is in the pipeline. Since then, the new officers are enthusiastic and committed to revitalize the organization because they believe that the goals of MRSP have become even more relevant with the current times in terms of sharing information on new development in technology, improving availability of qualified manpower to industries, and preparing for the country’s implementation towards the ASEAN integration.
Within a short span of time, memberships have grown substantially including Companies, Schools, Institutions, Professionals and Students; Having Batangas State University as the first School Chapter with more than 300 members.
To be the leader in the advancement of mechatronics and robotics technology, research and application in the philippines and asean region within 5 years.
