Equipment and Facilities


Biology laboratories are well-equipped to support activities for teaching and research in the various fields of biology. Equipment include photomicroscope, refrigerated centrifuge, thermocycler, microtomes, spectrophotometers, pH and Dissolved Oxygen meters, plankton nets, incubator, oven and fume hood.

The Chemistry Department uses various equipment for the pure chemistry courses: single crystal X-ray, diffractometer, cyclic voltammeter, atomic absorption spectrometer, Fourier-Transform infrarded spectrometer, ultraviolet-visible spectrometers, and pH meters.

To enhance the research capability of Math students, state-of-the-art personal computers are accessible through the Mathematics and Statistics Computing Laboratory (MSCL). Software like the General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS) system allows students to do mathematical modeling; the Linear Interactive Discrete Optimizer (LINDO) for operations research; SAS and Statistica for statistical analysis and Mathematica for almost all mathematical computations.

The Physics Department has five (5) teaching laboratories, including one equipped for computer-interfaced experiments in general physics. It maintains an earth science laboratory, an electronics laboratory, and an astronomical observatory equipped with an 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. It also has seven (7) research laboratories equipped with scanning electron microscope (SEM), Hall effect system, High Vacuum system with electron beam, a Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) system based on an Nd:YAG laser, and differential thermal analyzer.
