About Research

The dynamic members of the BPSU community always strive be excellent. To be excellent, they say, is to stand out in the crowd - that is the general concept. But in the field of research, excellence is defined as the capacity to respond immediately and accurately to the contemporary concerns in the society. It is measured by one's innovativeness and aptitude to refurbish old theories and techniques to produce equipment and other products that would suit today's needs and make lives more comfortable.

 In BPSU, those who are involved in research never cease to find solutions and produce innovations in order to fulfill the main purpose of research: to make life better. The Research and Development Office (RDO) of BPSU is very active in carrying out its duties and responsibilities. By involving the different sectors of the BPSU community, RDO has produced many successful researches that are now being used as IGPs and also in extension activities of the University. These researches have been cited in various research conferences, whether in the local or international level.

Linkages play a big role in enhancing the quality of the researches in BPSU; hence, forging more partnerships with other organizations is constantly being pursued. Through the exchange of ideas, research materials and the support extended by these linkages, the University is optimistic that its aim to produce world-class researches and products will be attained.
