All colleges in the University have their own research centers. They keep abreast of industry practices, trends and objectives through coordination with other industry sectors, locally and globally. They formulate reference guidelines to set standard practices. There are research centers that have databases of data and observations for easier retrieval of information to member individuals and organizations. Conclusions made in past studies can serve as basis for present day experimentations in order to predict future directions. These are part and parcel of the University's involvement in the total development of the students.
