The Department of Chemistry-CAS conducted an Academic Program Improvement (API) project entitled “Planning for the Creation of the MS Chemistry Program Phase 2: Resource Assessment and Research Agenda Mapping” at the Department of Chemistry Office-CAS, UPV Miagao Campus on 09-11 October 2017. This was a follow-up activity of the API workshop conducted last 25-27 January 2017 at the Teaching and Learning Resource Center, UPV Miagao.
Attended by the faculty and staff of the Department, the three-day workshop aims to develop a three-year research roadmap for the previously identified research thrusts of the program. It also served as a venue for the Department to assess itself for its readiness to offer an MS program in terms of library holdings, laboratory and classroom facilities, research capability, and faculty profile. These aspects were included in the requirements set by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) for an institution of an MS Chemistry program and these should be satisfied and sustained when the program is implemented.
