In the midst of the haywire the world is experiencing with the unprecedented disruption of face to face interactions, the Research and Development Center (RDC) through the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs (OVPAA) took this chance to challenge the faculty members of College of Computing Studies (CCS) to pursue their research endeavors. They presented their research proposals via Google Meet last September 27, 2021, 9:00 AM.
There were five research proposals: 1.) Blended Learning: Emerging Technology in the New Normal Education in Laguna University – College of Computing Studies by Ms. Joselle A. Banocnoc and Mr. Kurt Robin A. San Jose; 2.) The Laguna University Documents Component Ontology for Accreditation by Mr. Marlon L. Atanacio, Mr. Alejandro V. Matute, Jr., and Ms. Chrisna L. Fucio; 3. Energy Usage Profiling for the Provincial Government of Laguna towards Green Computing by Ms. Jenneth R. Mondez and Ms. Luvim M. Eusebio; 4.) Performance Analysis of Time Series Model Used in the Prediction and Data Analysis of COVID-19 Cases by Dr. Angelica M. Aquino; and 5.) Gamification in an Object-Oriented Programming Course by Mr. Florencio V. Contreras, Jr., Ms. Bea May M. Belarmino, and Mr. Mc Joshua Y. De Lima.
The invited panel of evaluators were seasoned experts from the field of Computer Science and Information Technology. Engr. Dylan Josh D. Lopez, a full-time lecturer of the Computer Engineering Department of Adamson University. Dr. Alvin S. Alon is the Research Head of the Digital Transformation System STEER Hub of Batangas State University and Dr. Jayson M. Victoriano, a professor of Bulacan State University. For Laguna University, Dr. Luisito L. Lacatan, Program Chair of Computer Engineering and Dr. Marie Joy Q. Elomina, Research Director and the Dean of College of Arts & Sciences evaluated the proposals too. It has been an interactive exchange of suggestions from the evaluators where the presenters gained insights in improving their research. Among the five proposals, two were approved and would receive research funding from LU. These are the proposals of Dr. Angelica M. Aquino, and the tandem of Ms. Jenneth R. Mondez and Ms. Luvim M. Eusebio.
This faculty research proposal presentation serves as a milestone for the CCS and RDC through the unrelenting support of Dr. Bartolome T. Tanguilig, III, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dr. Charlemagne G. Laviña, University President.
