The UST College of Education Laboratories cater to the academic needs of the students in partial fulfillment of Laboratory courses of the following Programs:
1. Bachelor of Secondary Education – major in Science (BSEd-Sci)
2. Bachelor of Science in Food Technology (BSFT)
3. Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics (BSND)
There are two (2) laboratory classrooms for Chemistry courses, one (1) laboratory classroom each for Biology courses, Physics courses and Food Technology courses. Depending on the complexity of the experiments required for each course, apparatus and equipment ranges from fundamental to specialized units. A total of four (4) Laboratory Assistants are assigned these laboratory classrooms from 7:00 am until 7:00 pm.
Requisition of new apparatus and equipment is through the Online Procurement System, but should have been budgeted and approved before the purchase, which is the sole function of the Purchasing Office. Periodic inventory and maintenance of all equipment, materials and fixtures are also performed by way of an online system. In case of breakages, there is a system for replacement, depending on the nature and how such apparatus or equipment are broken or malfunctioned.
There is a Laboratory Supervisor/Coordinator for Chemistry, Biology and Physics Laboratories, and also for a specialized laboratory, Food Technology Laboratory. He manages the laboratory facilities and personnel of the unit. The efficient and optimum use of the laboratory rooms, equipment and supplies are being overseen by the same Laboratory Coordinator, who reports directly to the Department Chairperson and/or to the Dean of the College, who, in turn, guides the supervisor in executing his duties and responsibilities.
