The University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines (USTP) is a state university system established on August 16, 2016 by virtue of Republic Act 10919 through the amalgamation of the Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST) in Cagayan de Oro City, Misamis Oriental and the Misamis Oriental State College of Agriculture and Technology (MOSCAT) in Claveria, Misamis Oriental. Both campuses are located in Northern Mindanao, the Gateway to Mindanao, which offers a strategic locational advantage for the institution to train and develop students from all the other regions of Mindanao.

It has maintained its Level IV Status as State University (Highest Distinction) as adjudged by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and continues to be one of the 19 leading state universities in the Philippines.

USTP’s mission is to bring the world of work (industry) into the actual higher education and training of students, offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to maximize their business potentials through a gamut of services from product conceptualization to commercialization, and contribute significantly to the National Development Goals of food security and energy sufficiency through technology solutions.

The University has a 7.3-hectare Cagayan de Oro campus. Its Claveria campus has a 101.37-hectare rich agricultural land. USTP’s main campus will eventually be located at the institution’s 295.14-hectare property in Alubijid, Misamis Oriental. The University also has satellite campuses in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental, Panaon and Oroquieta, Misamis Occidental.

History[edit]

Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST) has achieved its university status on 7 January 2009 after a long journey from its humble beginnings as a tradeschool in 1927.

The seed of MUST gained roots through the Pre-Commonwealth Act No. 3377 known as the Vocational Act of 1927. It was named as the Misamis Oriental Trade School (MOTS) which catered to the elementary level only but eventually in 1936, it opened a secondary four-year program.

In accordance to Republic Act No. 672 of 1952, MOTS became Mindanao School of Arts and Trades (MSAT) offering trade technical curriculum. Later in 1970, the school was authorized by virtue of RA 3959 to offer Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education and the Evening Opportunity Programs. In 1978, Presidential Decree 1431 upgraded the institution to Don Mariano Marcos Memorial Polytechnic State College. In 1991, it was renamed Mindanao Polytechnic State College (MPSC) and it also gained a new function – provide extension services.

The proposal to convert MPSC to MUST was presented in 1998, to the constituents of the institution and the general public. But the bill failed to prosper due to the moratorium on the creation of SUCs in the country (1998), Senate adjournment (2003); and the bill named HB 4914 was filed during the 13th Congress but was not finalized.

In 2006, Cong. Rufus Rodriguez filed House Bill 4914. On October 3, 2008, the historic Senate Public Hearing happened at the university gymnasium with Sen. Miguel Zubiri as the presiding officer. Eventually, the Senate and Congress approved the bill in December 2008.

On January 7, 2009 Republic Act No. 9519 was signed by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo at the MUST Gymnasium. The occasion was graced by senators, congressmen, local officials, civic organizations, GOs, private sectors, higher education institutions and stakeholders. [2]

Milestones and Timeline[edit]

  • 1927 Pre-Commonwealth Act No. 3377 known as the Vocational Act of 1927 established Misamis Oriental Trade School (MOTS) operating at the elementary level. In 1936, the intermediate program was replaced with the four-year secondary trade program.
  • 1952 Republic Act No. 672 converted MOTS into the Mindanao School of Arts and Trades (MSAT) offering two-year trade technical education. In 1970, Republic Act of 3959 authorized the offering of Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education and the Evening Opportunity Programs.
  • 1978 Presidential Decree 1431 converted MSAT to Don Mariano Marcos Memorial Polytechnic State College (DMMMPSC) with the mission "to provide quality relevant and trained human resources and to promote research supportive to the industrialization of Northern Mindanao."
  • 1991 Republic Act No. 7102 renamed DMMMPSC to Mindanao Polytechnic State College (MPSC) with the addition of the third function of the college — extension services — in the original mission.
  • 1995 Proposal for Mindanao University of Science and Technology was presented to the faculty and staff, students, PTA officials, and the general public. In 2002, Congressman John Michael C. Luzon of the Lone District of Cagayan de Oro filed House Bill No. 4582 for the conversion of MUST. The House Sub-Committee on Higher Education approved the bill in 2003.
  • 2009 Republic Act No. 9519 converted Mindanao Polytechnic State College (MPSC) into a university. MPSC will now be known as Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST).[3]
  • In February 2011, during the MUST days, Rufus Rodriguez said that a bill will be drafted to transform MUST into University of Science and Technology in the Philippines (USTP).[4]
  • In July 21, 2016, Republic Act No. 10919 established the University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines (USTSP) that amalgamated the Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST) and Misamis Oriental State College of Agriculture and Technology (MOSCAT) transferring its main campus to the 292 hectares in Alubijid, Misamis Oriental.
