SEAL OF EXCELLENCE The seal represents the role of MSU-IIT in technological advancement. The solid circle represents the nucleus of scientific and technical knowledge upon which technology depends. The three graduated lines signify the increasing challenges and responsibilities a student in technology faces from year to year. The need for expansion, advancement, and excellence in technology is projected by the lines directed outward of the triangle, the symbol of stability. Red signifies the determination of MSU-IIT in pursuing her programs while yellow radiates a bright future ahead.

As we take on this new school year, we renew once more our commitment to the quest of attaining a research university status. In this endeavor, we need to join hands in changing our attitudes, in working towards excellence in all our activities—big or small—we need to remind ourselves that it is in unity and focus that we can achieve excellent results. We should begin the new school year by working at improved faculty, staff and student relationships, at improved systems and services within the Institute and among the general community. The end result is always efficiency within, and from the ranks in support of top management in carrying out new challenges that should make the people we serve happy and satisfied.

SET Hallway

Let’s have a fresh start. Let’s make everyone notice that our Institute is synonymous with efficiency, and excellence is its middle name.

OVERVIEW The Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT) is an external unit and one of the ten campuses of the Mindanao State University System. Established on July 12, 1968 as provided for by Republic Act (RA) 5363, the institute has continually provided quality education to thousands of students from almost everywhere in the Philippines. These students flock to the institute every semester with one goal in mind - to study in MSU-IIT. We are humbled by the fact that these students choose and even dream to enroll in MSU-IIT. When asked why they choose this school, they strongly believe and admire our commitment to academic excellence. We envision MSU-IIT as a world-class institution of higher learning renowned for its excellence in science and technology and for its commitment to the holistic development of the individual and society. To live with our commitment, we offer our students a wide array of more than 115 academic programs, which include 43 graduate programs in a variety of fields including education, business, arts and humanities, engineering, information technology, the natural sciences, and mathematics. Our students are given opportunities to collaborate with more than 400 distinguished full-time faculty members passionate about teaching, research, extension, and community development. For these, MSU-IIT has received numerous institutional awards. Based on the standards of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), MSU-IIT is a Center of Excellence in Mathematics and Chemistry, Center of Development in Physics and Biology, Center of Development for Excellence in Information and Communication Technology, Center of Development in Ceramics Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Communications Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Material Science Engineering. We are the Zonal Research Center for Regions XII, IX, & ARMM. MSU-IIT is also known as the Information and Communication Technology Learning Hub for Northern Mindanao and the Virtual Center for Technology Innovation - Microelectronics based on the standards of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST). Many believed that we have achieved this far because of the powerful combination of big-university opportunities and a friendly, small-community campus setting. We are a public, non-residential, mid-sized, comprehensive university with a special emphasis on science and technology located in downtown Iligan City, Philippines - a small, safe, and vibrant city that is a regional hub of culture and commerce. Our students not only enjoy an intensely personalized academic experience but also participate in an extensive array of extracurricular activities that include more than 60 student organizations and a highly successful internationally-respected music and performing arts program. Not surprisingly, our graduates become wellrounded leaders in every field you can think of. Students come to MSU-IIT to fulfill their dreams. They choose to stay in MSU-IIT because they know that it is the ticket to their dreams. Not just that, MSU-IIT is so inviting. Our students are delighted with the warmth of welcome they receive, the ease with which they become part of this academic community, and the friendships they build here. At the end of the day, it makes us proud even more to know that our students are here because they feel at home. Indeed, it’s a home away from home. ii


TABLE OF CONTENTS Student’s ID & Personal Data About IIT


INTRODUCTION BRIEF HISTORY OF MSU-IIT The history of the Institute goes way back to 1946 with the establishment of the Iligan City National High School (ICHS). In 1956, the ICHS was converted into the Lanao Technical School (LTS) under the Bureau of Vocational Education (BEV). In 1965, RA 4626 converted LTS into the Northern Mindanao Institute of Technology (NMIT). However, this law was not implemented. On July 12, 1968, RA 5363 integrated LTS into the MSU System. During the 62nd Meeting of the MSU Board of Regents on March 12, 1975, the first comprehensive reorganizational plan of the Institute was approved under BOR Resolution No. 894, Series of 1975. This plan made the Institute the first autonomous unit of the MSU System. In the years that followed, MSU-IIT continually expanded and developed its academic programs. While doing so, it also enhanced research, infrastructure, and cultural activities.

UNIVERSITY HYMN HIMNO NG PAMANTASANG MINDANAO Music by: Lucio San Pedro | Lyrics by: Angelito Flores

Silahis ang katulad mong nagsabog ng liwanag Ng pag-asa’t hangarin ng pag-unlad. Ang pook ng Mindanao tinanglaw at pinalad, Nang ika’y isilang na dakila ang hangad. Ating ipagkapuri Itong Pamantasan, Ang buhay at pag-ibig sa kanya’y iaalay; Saan man naroroon ay bigyang karangalan, Dakilang paaralan Pamantasang Mindanao.

Warning

Probation

Any student who at the end of the term obtains final grades below “3” in 25% to 49% of the total number of academic units for which he is registered shall be warned by the Dean to improve his work.

Any student who obtains at the end of the term final grades below “3” in 50% to 75% of the total number of academic units in which he has final grades shall be placed on probation for the succeeding term and his load shall be limited to the extent to be determined by the Dean; Provided, That his shall not apply to students who received final grades in less than 6 academic units.


Probation may be remove by:

Any student who, at the end of the term, obtains final grades below “3” in 100% of the academic units in which he is given final grades shall be permanently barred from the readmission to any college or school of the University; Provided, further, That this shall not apply to students who received final grades in less than 12 academic units. b. Likewise, any student who has dropped in accordance with the Rule 3 (a) or (b) and once again fails, shall not be eligible for re-admission to any college or school of the University. c. The scholarship rule regarding permanent disqualification (Rule 4), does not apply to cases where the instructor concerned has certified that the grades of “5” were due to the student’s authorized dropping of the subject and not to poor scholarship. However, if the dropping takes place after the mid-term and the student’s class standing is poor, his grades of “5: shall be counted against him for the purpose of this scholarship rule. The Committee on Scholarship and Delinquency shall deal with these cases on their individual merits and shall recom mend to the President/Chancellor that the student be dismissed and be allowed to transfer to another department or college, or be placed on probation; but in no case of re-admission shall the action be lighter than probation.

OVERVIEW The College of Arts and Social Sciences (CASS) is home to the four (4) internationally acclaimed groups in Southern Philippines- the Integrated Performing Arts Guild, Kalimulan Cultural Dance Troupe, the Octava Choral Society and the Mindanao Creative Writers Guild. It is also the home of renowned artists, playwrights, poets, language experts, historians, sociologists, community organizers, and peace advocates, who have been constantly impacting the lives of the Mindanao community. With its strong faculty force, CASS offers six (6) undergraduate degree programs, namely: English, Filipino, Sociology, History, Political Science, and Psychology. It likewise offers six (6) masters and two (2) doctoral degree programs. It has gained the distinction of Level II status by the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP) in all six (6) departments of the College and is recently set for Level III accreditation by AACCUP this school year 2010-2011. Such accomplishment adds prestige to CASS and the Institute in general, justified by the possession of quality standards in the Social Sciences; hence, a triumph shared by only few other Social Science campuses in the Philippines. CASS also offers the two-year (2) General Education program which caters to students who unfortunately did not meet the required passing rate under the System Admission Scholarship Exam (SASE) of the Mindanao State University (MSU) and those who were not admitted in some programs; thus, students are privileged to have equal access to quality education.

CASS MISSION To promote a peaceful and sustainable society through the development of globally competent, socially responsible, culturally sensitive and humanistic scholars and professionals.

OVERVIEW The School of Computer Studies (SCS) is responsible for the teaching, research and extension functions of the Information and Communication Technology Center (ICTC). To this end, it offers degree and non-degree programs in the graduate and undergraduate levels. These programs are carried through on campus or distance mode by formal, non-formal or informal systems. Under SCS, the various programs were Computer Science and Computer Applications from the College of Engineering, Information Technology from the College of Business Administration and Accountancy, and Electronics and Communications Technology from the School of Engineering Technology. These departments were virtually removed from their mother units to form SCS, not without misgivings from them. But whatever was lost to the unit concerned was to be the Institute’s gain as we hoped to see the benefits to a more focused implementation of the IT programs.
