The College of Science and Computer Studies takes pride in its impact on the institution and on the much larger community with regard to the scientific field of research. The CSCS faculty have accomplished various researches in their fields of expertise. Most of these researches have been presented in various institutional, regional, national and international forums and published in professional refereed journals. More importantly, these researches have been disseminated to the stakeholders through a university-sponsored extension program that has benefited the community in need and therefore realizing the University’s mission of creating possibilities.
The College pursues to further strengthen its linkage programs with different national and international organizations in order to concretize and enhance the research interests and capabilities of the faculty. At present, some of the members are engaged in scientific research undertakings. To build the College as the premier research institution, it is but imperative that specific research agenda for each of the undergraduate and graduate programs of the College is advanced to meet the new criteria of excellence for the College of Science and Computer Studies.
It is also the goal of the College to benchmark on the advances of basic and applied scientific researches. Further, it aims to take part in revitalizing education through transfer of productive learning, and in directing the local communities to discover the resources that will improve their livelihood without sacrificing the natural environment and well-preserved cultures.
Realizing the vital role of the College in mapping out a direction towards transformation, researches that will be conducted promote the latest trends in health and biological sciences, environmental and physical sciences, mathematics and computer studies and their appropriate applications on:
Energy, Resource, and Waste Management
- What alternative ways can we offer to conserve energy and natural resources?
- How can we improve the system of waste management?
Biodiversity, Environment, Health and Safety
- What is the status of the remaining biological species in the country? How can we protect them from further degradation?
- How does climate change affect the social, political, geographical, economic,environmental, cultural, and educational realms of human society?
- How can we enhance disaster risk reduction management?
- What are the causes and effects of some leading disorders in the community?
- How can we improve our health conditions through the use of traditional / complementary and alternative medicines?
- How can we participate in the promotion of creating a healthy and livable environment through research that involves the use of mathematical models in rural and urban planning and management?
Computer Science and Information Technology
- How can information technology enhance the operations and monitoring of some major vital activities of the community?
Each of the undergraduate and graduate programs offered under the College has its own set of specific research areas. These research areas are anchored on the Institutional Research Thrust (IRT) and the Cavite Development Research Program (CDRP), both under the management of the University Research Office (URO).
