The Southern Philippines Agri-Business and Marine and Aquatic School of Technology, formerly known as Malita Agri-Business and Marine and Aquatic School of Technology, is a public college in the Philippines. It is mandated to provide higher technologies and vocational instruction and training in science, agricultural and industrial fields, as well as short term technical or vocational courses. It is also mandated to promote research, advance studies and progressive leadership in its areas of specialization. Its main campus is located in Malita, Davao del Sur.
SPAMAST started in 1966 with one class – the first Year High School named as “Barrio community High School”. On July 5, 1968 through Municipal Resolution No. 80, it became the “Malita Municipal High School” offering a complete secondary curriculum. In 1969, a Marcos–type building with 10 rooms was constructed in a two-hectare lot donated by Mrs. Juanita Vda. De Salmon.
On February 8, 1982 through Batas Pambansa Bilang 148, the malita Municipal High School was converted into State College known as the “Malita Agri-Business and Marine and Aquatic School of Technology” (MAMAST; putting the province’s political leader assemblyman Benjamine V. Bautista's dream on education and entrepreneurs into reality in the region with Mr. Ramon M. Barbon as first President.
On March 9, 1984, Batas Pambansa Bilang 148 was amended by Batas Pambansa Bilang 651, changing the name of MAMAST to “Southern Philippines Agri-Business Marine and Aquatic School of Technology (SPAMAST)” to expand its scope and interest in the fields of agriculture and fisheries.
Since then, SPAMAST has flourished and acquired significant properties that are now sites for the realization of its mission and vission. It has acquired an 8 hectares (20 acres) land in Buhangin, Malita, Digos City which is now the College of Agricultural Sciences (CAS) Campus; properties in Kapoc, Matanao, Kapatagan, Digos City which is now served as satellite campuses for the College of Agricultural Sciences (CAS) and other properties along Malita Campus shorelines.
The Student Account office of SPAMAST-CAS has already developed a computerized Student Account System, and it was implemented in first semester school year 2010-2011, during the enrollment period up to the present. The system, which is exclusively operated by the Student Account In-charge, is not accessible by the students. If in case the students want to know their assessment information, they are directing it to the Student Account In-charge, which makes the latter stressful and difficult to handle especially if it has a large number of students. The Online Student Accounts Information System will develop to help and improved the work of the Student Account In-charge, especially in accessing individual assessment. The proposed system can access the individual assessment record of the students any time if they want to know the update being posted by the account in-charge. The basic functionalities of the system are suitable to cater online accessing in every student assessment record. It covers students’ account information such as payments, balances, and the total assessment of individual students coming from different departments.
