BS GE and BS IT Programs Impress AACCUP

by Dean Joshua Solis

The Bachelor of Science in Geodetic Engineering and the Bachelor of Science in

Information Technology flawlessly showcased their programs respectively on Monday during the

Level III Phase II Accreditation Survey Visit at the Mechatronics Building, Caraga State

University Main Campus.

CEIT Dean, Engr. Meriam Santillan, presented a number of features in the BS Geodetic

Engineering program at the GEO SAFER Mindanao. She showcased the mapping and water-level

monitoring system updated on the GEO SAFER Mindanao online platform. The system was able

to predict flooding on remote areas in the region during heavy rains, and proved to have benefited

the local government units.

The Geodetic Engineering program, being one of the programs with the largest

populations, also presented their vast number of topnotchers. Dean Santillan explained how

topnotchers and GE graduates from CSU were absorbed by the industry. She also added how GEO

SAFER Mindanao cater students with GEO SAFER related theses.

For their research and extension, the program highlighted their Augmented Reality

Sandbox which have been exhibited in their roadshows. Also, their SAGO project as one of the

first DOST-PCIEERD funded project in the university.

The only comments from the accreditors were on the abrupt dropping rate on the program’s

publication. Dean Santillan defended that decreased number of the program’s publication was due

to the government’s “Foreign Travel Policy”.

Another program that wowed the accreditors was the BS Information Technology program.

Headed by CSU’s Information and Communication Technology Director, Dr. Rolyn Daguil. Dr.

Daguil presented the advancements of information technology at the Virtual Learning Facility,

Mechatronics Building.

The BS Information Technology program presented their facilities at the second level of

the Mechatronics and Robotics Building. They showcased their DOST-PCIEERD Navigatu

project that wowed the accreditors.

The program highlighted graduates who are being incubated to be CEOs of their own

companies. These start-ups are IT related and one of which has already been ran on the beta phase.

There were only minimal comments and clarifications regarding the IT program’s
