The Science Education Institute (SEI), is a division of the Department of Science and Technology. As part of its procedures, a Technical Working Group (TWG) was established to assess the University of Cordilleras’ capacity to offer priority S&T degree programs at the MS and PhD levels. This evaluation included a visual inspection of the university’s facilities, as well as assessment of faculty and students. Dr. Jaevier A. Villanueva was invited by DOST-SEI to join the TWG because of his knowledge and expertise in the field of Information Technology.
