It was not until yesterday when the University Quality Assurance for AACCUP Director Hedeliza Pineda announced that the recent accreditation of six programs was a success—eyeing now for level 3 is legit after level-2 status is granted valid from June 16, 2017 through June 15, 2021.
College of Arts and Sciences and College of Engineering in CTU Main subjected the following programs for accreditation early in June: AB English, BS in Development Communication, BS in Mathematics, BS in Statistics, BS in Civil Engineering and BS in Electronics Engineering.
Getting past level two (except for BSECE that applied for level-1 status) signals for intended growth in the university while taking circumstances one step at a time. Dr. Pineda, in UPO’s encounter with her, talked of the amount of preparation needed for the next level that will happen anytime before 2021. Her notion on setting the mind for the next round before level 2 expires bears some implications on the university’s level of sensitivity to the standards in the workplace, where CTU graduates would soon find themselves in.
Dr. Edwin A. Pilapil and Dr. Nolasco K. Malabago, deans of both colleges, decidedly went for evaluation to not lose the momentum of continual improvement. With the growing sense of discomfort for some of the faculty members in gathering documents for level three, phase 1, (and level 2 for ECE), the two colleges have reached plans to prepare for the undertaking . It is hoped that the next evaluation would raise the level of efficiency in the delivery of services, as both colleges have brought great influence to the way graduates carry out their tasks.
Dr. Pineda also included in her report, given at the opening of CAS’ In-service Training yesterday, the level-1 status granted to AB Local Governance Administration and BS in Technology Management after the accreditation in April this year. UPO
