The program leading to the degree of B.S. Physics shall provide the students with a comprehensive and rigorous training in physics as a foundation for careers in pure, applied physics, interdisciplinary sciences, and engineering. Since Physics is closely related to the fields of engineering (electrical, mechanical, chemical), materials science, mathematics, physical chemistry, meteorology and biophysics, a BS Physics degree will prepare the graduates for work in evolving private and government research and service institutes (e.g. data and energy scientists), academic units (e.g.
Dr. Ernest P. Macalalad, a faculty member of the Department of Physics, together with his Bachelor of Science in Physics students Merlin Mendoza and Kyle Ezekiel Juadines, presented their research on atmospheric physics and space science last July 28 to 30, 2019. at the 6th International Conference on Space Science and Communication (IconSpace2019) held in Pulai Springs Resort, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia with a theme “Advancing Space Science for Societal Sustainability”.
Ms. Doebner von C. Tumacder, a faculty member of the Department of Physics, together with her students: Acelle Castillo, Jhoan de Jesus, and Bianca Rae Pasela and collaborators: Ms. Kathrina Lois Taaca and Mr. Rhenish Simon from UP-Diliman and UP-Manila, respectively, presented three research papers in the 21st International Vacuum Congress (IVC-21) held in Malmö, Sweden last July 1-5, 2019.
Department of Physics professors represented Mapúa University at the 2019 Filipino Scholars Symposium in Kansai held on July 8 – 9, 2019 at Icho-Kaikan Hall of Osaka University, Suita Campus, Japan.
The 2-day symposium was organized by the Osaka University Institute of Laser Engineering (ILE) with the objective of strengthening the academic and research relations among Filipino and Japanese students, researchers, and professors.
Mapúa University has been shortlisted in the Times Higher Education (THE) Awards Asia 2019’s Teaching and Learning Strategy of the Year category. The University is the only higher education institution (HEI) from the Philippines that made it to the list of the said category for its teaching and learning strategies known as Digital Day and Digital Rush.
Mapúa University has partnered with the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) to develop its Technology Licensing Office (TLO) through a memorandum of agreement (MOA) signed last December 2018. It is the second office to be created in the University geared towards directing Mapúa research to value, following Mapúa’s Innovation and Technology Support Office (ITSO) established in 2011.
