Best univ undergrad theses awarded in 13th Student R&D forum

Recognizing the value of student researchers and their potential as professional researchers in the future, the Bicol University Research and Development Center (BURDC) spearheaded the 13th BU Student R&D Forum on March 9-10, 2017.

The activity served as academic catalyst, brought awareness and appreciation among students about the challenging and fertile field of research.

The Student R&D Forum was categorized according to Research and Development with five thematic areas where all colleges vied the best paper award. The five thematic areas were Food Security and Poverty reduction (FSPR), Climate Change and National Resource Management (CC & NRM), Global Competitiveness of the Business and Industry (GCBI), Social Development Promotion (SDP) and Institutional Policy (IP).

The said activity aimed to provide a venue to fuel the interest and appreciation for research among students and faculty members.

Furthermore, the event showcased the student researches according to different research categories and classifications; reviewed, evaluated and identified outstanding R&D outputs of students; and identified student research either for further research, promotion/dissemination, or commercialization.

The forum also captured development project ideas and ensured their IP protection such as patent or copyright, publication. It also offered opportunities for other knowledge management procedures and showcased students’ poster ideas to provide visual communication of information and ideas in the dissemination of their research. 

Here are the winners for the 13th Bicol University Best Undergraduate Thesis:
