About the Department
The Automotive Technology was one of the specialization courses of the program Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology from 1976 to 2007. Due to the increasing numbers of students who wants to take up the automotive technology course, the stakeholders specially the TOYOTA MOTORS as one of the linkages of the College suggested for the re-alignment of the BSIT-Major in Automotive Technology into a program that may further enhances the ability of the students with regard to automotive high-end technology, and that can cater more students who are qualified to enter in the program.
Hence, the administration, with the assistance of the faculty and staff, spearheaded a further study involving the stakeholders like the students, parents, alumni, retirees and industry linkages for the possible realignment of the course into a program. A proposal was formulated in 2007 and presented during the special college council meeting on October 26, 2007. The proposal was approved by the council and was endorsed for presentation to the University Academic Council meeting. The said proposal entitled "Re-alignment of the B.S in Industrial Technology major in Automotive Technology into Ladder-type Bachelor in Automotive Technology” was finally approved by the MMSU Board of Regents during its 80th regular meeting at CHED Central Office on March 17, 2008 under Board Resolution No. 953, series 2008, effective during the First Semester, School Year 2008-2009.
During the first three years of operation of the program, its management was still attached to the BSIT. When the program (BSIT) underwent again a Re-Accredited Status (Level II) for the period from September 23, 2001 to September 22, 2006, the BAT program documents was included and carried the evaluation result of the BSIT program titled a RE-ACCREDITED STATUS (LEVEL II) which was awarded by the Accrediting Agency Of Chartered Colleges And Universities of The Philippines (AACCUP) Inc. in November 12, 2012.
