Kidapawan City Campus

The University of Southern Mindanao- Kidapawan City Campus (USM-KCC) is known to be the former North Cotabato College of Arts and Trades (NCCAT). Prior to NCCAT it was named Kidapawan Trade School (KTS) established in 1962 with the passage of Republict Act No. 3329, otherwise known as the “Higher Modernization Act of 1997” and pursuant to the Special Provision No. 2 of CHED FY 1999 Budget under the General Appropriation Act of 1999 or RA 8745 on the Integration of CHED-Supervised Instituitons (CSIs) to State Universities and Colleges (SUCs), the commission on Higher Education issues guidelines to effect integration of CSIs to the SUCs for immediate implementation. As per CHED Memorandum Order no. 18, series of 1999, North Cotabato College of Arts and Trades was integrate to the University of Southern Mindanao as the host SUC. On June 31, 2000 dated the formal turn-over of NCCAT to USM by CHEDRO XII Regional Director to the University President.

This external campus of USM is headed by the Campus Dean by virtue of BOR Resolution no. 30 s. 1999. The first USM-KCC Campus dean was Dr. Palasig U. Ampang, followed by Dr. Rogelio S. Tabora, Dr. Rufino S. Garzon, Dr. Rene U. Handoc, Dr. Herminigildo M. Gutierrez, Prof. Alfredo E. Naparan as OIC dean, Dr. Luz A. Taposok, then a short period for Prof.Alfredo E. Naparan as dean. At present, the campus has now the fiscal autonomy from University of Southern Mindanao, Kabacan, Cotabato and headed by Chancellor Dr. Ronielyn F Pinsoy.

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

Mechanical Engineering is a profession that concerns itself with mechanical design, energy conversion, fuel and combustion technologies, heat transfer, materials, noise control and acoustics, manufacturing processes, rail transportation, automatic control, product safety and reliability, solar energy, and technological impacts to the society. Mechanical engineers study the behaviour of materials when forces are applied to them, such as the motion of solids, liquids, gases, and heating and cooling of object and machines. Using these basic building blocks, mechanical engineers design space vehicles, computers, power plants, intelligent machines and robots, automobile, trains, airplanes, furnaces, and air-conditioners. Mechanical engineers work on jet engine design, submarines, hot air balloons, textile and new materials, medical and hospital equipment, and refrigerator and other home appliances. Anything that is mechanical or must interact with another machine or human being is within the broad scope of mechanical engineering.

Program Objectives:

By the time of graduation, the students of the program shall have the ability to:

  • Apply knowledge of mathematics and science to solve complex mechanical engineering problems;
  • Design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyse and interpret data;
  • Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints, in accordance with standards;
  • Function in multidisciplinary and multi-cultural teams;
  • Identify, formulate, and solve complex mechanical engineering problems;
  • Understand professional and ethical responsibility;
  • Communicate effectively;
  • Understand the impact of mechanical engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context;
  • Recognize the need for, and engage in life-long learning
  • Know contemporary issues;
  • Use techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary mechanical engineering practice;
  • Know and understand engineering and management principles as a member and leader of a team, and to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment.
