FACULTY RESEARCH UNDERTAKINGS


CEn faculty members are highly qualified researchers considering the continuous support that the University gives them in terms of its manpower development. CLSU continuously develops its faculty by sending them to reputable universities here and abroad in order to attain their MS and PhD degrees. In so doing, they are honed by conducting the required researches while they are pursuing their degrees, including thesis and dissertation researches. In addition, CLSU also allows them to attend workshops, trainings, research paper presentations, conventions, etc. in order to update themselves of the current research undertakings in the field of Agricultural Engineering. Likewise, CLSU provides all available research facilities and equipment of the University that are needed in the conduct of any approved research proposals.

All faculty have the capacity to make their own research proposals. These proposals include researches in the fields of Civil Engineering, Soil and Water Conservation Engineering, Farm Power and Machinery, Crop Process Engineering, Renewable Energy, and Environmental Engineering.
