The Misamis Oriental State College of Agriculture and Technology (MOSCAT) is a public institution of tertiary education that offers courses in education opportunities at the graduate and undergraduate levels, including short-term courses and high school.[1]

Profile[edit]

The institution conducts research in which it generates new technologies packaged or demonstrated designed to help farmers improve farming techniques. Extension programs are conducted through local and external linkages. Its MOSCAT-Farmers’ Information and Technology Services Center in collaboration with PCARRD and NOMCARRD[2] has been open to serve clients needing information and technology services.

History[edit]

MOSCAT started as Claveria Municipal High School in 1963 with 165 students and five teachers under the leadership of its first administrator, the late Romeo Abilo. In 1967, it was converted to Claveria National Rural High School (CNRHS) by virtue of RA 3781 under the staunch leadership of the late Marcos Edrolin. On June 10, 1983, Batas Pambansa 402 was approved and converted the CNRHS to Misamis Oriental State College of Agriculture and Technology or MOSCAT with Arsenio B. Gonzales as its first president. Gonzales’ term was highlighted by the Republic of The Philippines-European Union Agricultural Education Grant providing more facilities and machinery, vehicles, buildings and faculty training locally and abroad. During his period, the notable Model Farm was established showcasing sustainable upland farming technologies.

In 1996, Dr. Teresita T. Tumapon was appointed as officer-in-charge. She strengthened local and international linkages such as Barangay Integrated Approached for Nutrition Improvement (BIDANI), the Agroforestry Support Program for Empowering Communities Towards Self-reliance in Sustainable Development of the Uplands and the International Center for Research in Agroforestry.

Dr. Juan A. Nagtalon became its second president from 1998 until 2006.[3]

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.
