The College of Science and Computer Studies (CSCS) imparts quality education to its students by equipping them with multiple levels of skills and knowledge in the Biological and Physical Sciences, Mathematics, Computer Science and Information Technology through relevant applications and research--based activities.

Purposes and Objectives

Guided by the Lasallian core values of Faith, Zeal in service, and Communion in mission, the College of Science and Computer Studies and Computer Studies aims to:

  • develop innovative and creative thinkers through researches, especially in the areas of computer and national sciences;
  • enhance among our learners the qualities of a true Lasallian by helping them recognize the community not only as a laboratory for learning but also a venue to reach the less fortunate.
The CSCS logo

The design of the CSCS logo features the Signum Fidei star on top guiding the four human figures representing the niche of the College (red human figure) to the development of the community, nation, and humanity (the other three human figures).

On each side and below the human figures, are symbols that represent the four departments under the College i.e. laurel leaves for Biological Sciences, binary numerals for Computer Studies, equation symbols for Mathematics, and the structure of the atom for Physical Sciences.

The CSCS color

Red carries the strongest reaction of all the colors. Red light is scattered the least and therefore reaches the greatest distance among all colors of the visible spectrum. It symbolizes life, courage and success. The unity among the diverse members of the CSCS is just like the red spectrum reaching the farthest distance in terms of achievements and fulfilling its goals.

The CSCS tagline

Discovering. Inventing. Nurturing.

The tagline summarizes the main thrusts of the College i.e. to discover knowledge, to invent technology, and to nurture the environment.
