Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics, major in Instrumentation (4 years)

Description

Applied Physics is the application of all branches of physics to the broad realm of practical problems in engineering, science and industry. This BS Applied Physics program blends the concrete and the abstract aspects of physics. It provides the students with an opportunity to acquire abilities for continued advancement in technology from fundamental principles in physics. This also promotes the development of strong analytical skills as well as experimental capability through its upper core programs. The instrumentation specialty involves training in design and utilization of scientific instruments.

Welcome Message for Freshmen A.Y. 2020-2021

Dear Freshmen Thomasian Scientists,

I would like to extend my warmest virtual welcome to the UST College of Science to all of you!

Never in recent history has science played such a visible role in society. This highlights the country’s need for more scientists to continue the task of discovering and understanding the world we live in, and in innovating technologies and processes to solve humanity’s most pressing concerns. Thomasian scientists have always played a significant role in charting the scientific progress of this country. By choosing the UST College of Science, you have already shown a desire to be part of this country’s scientific workforce. Our motto in the College of Science is “Galing Science, Galing Science!”. This speaks of our desire to instill excellence among our students, which we hope you will all embody by the time you earn your degrees.

This is a truly unprecedented start to Academic Year 2020-2021 for all of us. Rest assured that the College of Science is one with the entire UST community in ensuring that learning will take place for our students despite these challenging circumstances. The learning management system of the university, dubbed the UST Cloud Campus, which has been in place for more than a decade now, is ready to provide the main platform for the efficient delivery of instruction. However, given the distinct challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, our faculty are continuously innovating to meet the demands of this uncharted territory in higher education. We will also strive to provide adequate laboratory instruction, which is central to the sciences, despite the limitations set forth by physical distancing and public health regulations.

We hope to develop a strong partnership with you, our dear students, your parents, guardians, benefactors and families, in order to ensure that you get the quality Thomasian science education you sought to have by enrolling in our college.

We all pray that in due time, we can continue to deliver the quality Thomasian science education you deserve under more normal circumstances.

Prof. Rey Donne S. Papa, PhD
Dean

In this extraordinary time of the COVID-19 pandemic, the role of Faith and Science becomes greatly underscored in our life. Welcoming you to the University of Santo Tomás, therefore, does not only bring joy but hope for the people of God whom you will be serving.

In the face of physical, economic, psychological, and spiritual predicaments, we must be undeterred to pursue the Veritas (Truth) through our academic endeavors per scientiam ad Dominum (through Science towards the Lord) as inspired by our patron St. Albert the Great, and his illustrious disciple, St. Thomas Aquinas, who said: “Just as it is better to illuminate than merely to shine, so to pass on what one has contemplated is better than merely to contemplate” (cf. S.Th. II-II q. 188 a. 6.).

Through Faith and Science, we keep on finding courage in the midst of life’s hardship. When life is difficult, all the more that we need to be full of life. The harder the blow, the harder we hope. Illuminate others than merely shine. Share the fruits of your studies, than merely contemplate. Don’t be discouraged over closed doors; look for the back door and even the open windows. Don’t just focus on what we’ve lost; look also for what we’ve received. Welcome to the UST College of Science. 

Rev. Fr. Louie R. Coronel, O.P., EHL

Student Experience and Support

The Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy program provides not just theoretical input, but also practical applications of learned concepts and skills to best prepare students for the world of work. To do so, the program uses facilities such as laboratories for their learning experiences.

The University of Santo Tomas provides student services that cater to academic, spiritual, and wellness concerns of students. These support units are found in the different parts of the campus and can be accessed by Thomasians. When the University shifted to distance learning, the services also transitioned to online services to continue addressing the needs of Thomasians.

Program Policies

  • The work of the students shall be graded at the end of each term in accordance with the 5-point numerical grading system. 

  • A student’s performance is evaluated in two grading periods: Prelims and Finals.
  • A student’s final grade is based on the average of his/her raw grade computed from two (2) grading periods:

( + )/2 

The average raw grade is transmuted to the 5-point grade equivalent. A sample matrix of computation based on 60-raw grade passing mark is shown: 

Lecture and their corresponding laboratory courses are known as Co-Requisites.

 

Lecture Courses

For most technical courses, the passing raw grade is 60.

Class Standing60%
Preliminary / Final Exams30%
Course Inquiry Project (CIP)10%

 

Course Inquiry Project

  • CIP is a group project that showcases the integration of students’ learning in a particular course. Possible forms are: 1) infographics, brochures, poster, capstone research, and problem sets, among others.

 

Laboratory Courses

Class Standing70%
Preliminary / Final Exams30%
  • Students who do not show satisfactory performance in their academic undertaking shall be debarred from the college.
  • Those with academic deficiencies of 8 units or less will be classified as Probationary. Students will be allowed to enroll the following term but only in subjects authorized by the Dean’s representatives
  • Those with academic deficiencies of 9 units or more will be classified as Not to be Readmitted (NBTR). Except for those in the first year and fourth year, students under this classification will not be readmitted in the following term. 

Regular: No deficiencies and taking the regular load

Irregular: With back subjects and/or with uncleared deficiencies (5.0, WF, FA, INC)

  • Students, as a general rule, should carry the academic load prescribed by the Dean or Dean’s representative.
  • Only graduating students are entitled to carry an overload.
  • Only graduating students are allowed to waive pre-requisites.

The College of Science is the second home to her students. The college looks after not only the students’ academic progress but also their personal development and well-being.

The following are certain policies and guidelines on student welfare and development set by the College of Science and the Office for Student Affairs.

Based on PPS No. 1027: Code of Conduct

The University of Santo Tomas is the second home of the Thomasian students. Its task is mainly to form and improve the students’ character, attitude and moral values, as well as to develop their intellectual, physical and psychological fitness. A proper norm of conduct is designed to inculcate these ideals.

  • Thomasian core values of competence, compassion, and commitment
  • Honesty
  • Courtesy
  • Diligence
