Research directors across CTU campuses had work-from-home woes solved, following recent turnover of brand-new laptop computers as an indispensable tool in the new normal.
Ongoing research projects are a major concern for Vice President for Research and Development Adrian Ybañez, who iterated the rationale of such a provision in one of last year’s assemblies via zoom conference.
With remote work imposed due to COVID-19 pandemic, University President Rosein Ancheta Jr. previously signed the memorandum of agreement, providing a total of 49 units to aforesaid R&D directors.
The entry-level ASUS Core TM i5 laptop, costing Php 45,000 per unit, is suitable for research data management.
“Being equipped with … [a] laptop, provided by the R&D head office, is a great privilege to do my task efficiently,” said Ulysis Malait, one of the recipients.
The university’s act can be seen as a way of bolstering the research agenda, as it goes head to head with other state universities and higher education institutions (HEIs) here and abroad. UICPA
