With a perspective that learning is lifelong and continuous, DNSC urges all its students, faculty and staff to engage in Research, Extension and Production activities. The college aims to develop an academic culture that is always curious on how to improve our society’s present state.

A testament of DNSC’s commitment is its active participation to various research conferences, locally and abroad. Last September 23 – 25, 2017, students and faculty went to Baguio City for the International Conference and Competition on Engineering, Education, Management, Science and Technology.

The paper entitled – Vulnerability Assessment of the Coastal Areas in Panabo City – won the Best Paper Award, and its presenter, Prof. Sevetrim B. Torrejos, emerged as Best Presenter. The proponents; Dr. Joy Picar (team leader), Prof. Samuel Plando, Engr. Maria Corcino and Engr. Rogelio Flores, were thrilled not just with the award but in sharing their findings and methods on how they found the coastal areas of Panabo City to be “highly vulnerable” to the occurring impacts of climate change.

DNSC delegation was diversely represented during the conference. Representatives in the field of management were Dr. Marilou Junsay, Prof. Glenne Lagura, Prof. Josiedel Santamaria, Prof. Raquel Edjec, Ms. Amalia Caballero, and 18 Bachelor in Public Administration students. Prof. Mark Van Buladaco also shared his expertise in Information Technology. (end, CNL)
