College of Engineering and Architecture
HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AND ARCHITECTURE
The enactment of Batas Pambansa Bilang 401 on June 10. 1983 converted the East
Visayan School of Arts and Trades (EVSAT) to the Central Visayas Polytechnic College
(CVPC). The State College was the result of the merger of three (3) government
institutions in the province of Negros Oriental namely; the East Visayan School of Arts
and trades in Dumaguete City, the Bais School of Fisheries (BSF) in Okiot, Bais City,
and the Guihulngan Vocational School (GVS) in the municipality of Guihulngan.
CVPC's mandate included the offering of engineering courses. However. it took quite a
while for CVPC to comply with this mandate and it was only during the presidency of
Hon. Henny A Sojor, Ph.D., the second CVPC president, that this was realized. Upon
assumption into office on August 1, 1991. the president prioritized and initiated ways
and means to offer engineering courses in the institution.
By virtue of the CVPC Board of Trustees (BOT) Resolution No. 43, series of 1991, the
president was given the legal mandate to offer the following programs; Bachelor of
Science in Architecture, Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communications
Engineering, and the Associate in Architecture. The Bachelor of Science in Electronics
and Communications Engineering was offered in June 1992 under the Engineering
Department of the Technician Education and Engineering Institute (TEEI), the forerunner of the College of Technician Education which was then headed by Dean
Ramses Santos. The Department was chaired by Engr. Gonzalo A. Bulaclac Jr. The following year, the Bachelor of Science in Architecture was offered by the Department.
In 1984 the BOT issued Resolution No. 7 allowing the president to offer the following
programs; Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE), Bachelor of Science in
Electrical Engineering (BSEE), Bachelor of Science in Geothermal Engineering (BSGE),
and the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME). This essentially paved
the way for the establishment of the College of Engineering and Architecture (CEA) in CVPC.
The College was officially instituted in June 1994 with 10 faculty members headed by
Engr. Gonzalo A. Bulaclac Jr., its first Dean. Six (6) programs were offered for the school
year 1994-1995, including the BSECE and BSArch programs transferred
from TEEI. A total of 228 students of which 17.5% percent of the total student
population or 40 students were female, enrolled in various degree programs. The
total CEA student population included 31 third-year and 22 second-year students in
Electronics and Communications Engineering as well as eight (8) second-year students
In June 1995, the Bachelor of Science in Geodetic Engineering (BSGdE) was offered as
authorized by BOT Resolution No. 14-a, series of 1995. BOT Resolution No. 7, series of
1994 authorized the operation of the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BSCOE)
program but was offered in June 1997. With the addition of these two (2) degree programs,
the College has offered eight (8) degree programs in Architecture and Engineering since
the start of school year 1997-1998.
Initially, the College was situated and instructions were held at the third floor of what is
presently known as the College of Technician Education building, located at the
Institution's main campus at Kagawasan Avenue, Capitol Area, Dumaguete City. With
the development of a new campus at Bajumpandan, officially known as Main Campus II,
Dumaguete City, the College is now permanently housed at the College of Engineering
and Architecture Building since 1998.
The first batch of engineering graduates of the college consisted of 18 students, 17
male and a lone female who have earned and received their Bachelor of Science
degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering in March 1997. The following
year, four (4) of the pioneering group of Architecture students graduated with the degree
Bachelor of Science in Architecture. March 2006, the total number of graduates from the
various degree programs of CEA numbered 470.
On June 25, 2004, the Central Visayas Polytechnic College was converted into a state
university to be known as the Negros Oriental State University (NORSU ), by virtue of
Republic Act No. 9299. The same Act integrated the Genaro Gof Memorial College in
the City of Bais, the Siaton Community College in the municipality of Siaton and the
Mabinay Institute of Technology in the municipality of Mabinay, all located in the
Province of Negros Oriental.
Over the years, the student population has increased markedly. This increase
necessitated the hiring of additional qualified teachers as members of the CEA faculty
that has since tripled in number. The College caters to graduates from public and
private high schools not only in the province of Negros Oriental but also in the
neighboring provinces of Cebu, Negros Occidental as well as provinces in northern
The dedication and commitment of the faculty and staff of the College is clearly
manifested in the performance of its graduates not only in government licensure
examinations but also in their respective workplaces. Such is likewise evident from the
satisfaction and approval of partner entities and communities in its research and
extension activities and linkages.
The College of Engineering and Architecture continues to uphold the standard of the
State University and is deeply committed to its mission of preparing and transforming
students to become highly-trained engineers and architects dedicated to the ideals of
their profession for the benefit of the community to which they serve or lead. The
College remains steadfast to its Vision of being the center of excellence in engineering
and architecture in the Visayas and Mindanao.

College of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (CAFF)
The Show Window of Negros Oriental State University
The home of grand harvest festivals!
CAFF, as it continuously grows, has 14 Bachelor of Science in Agriculture instructors, 6
Bachelor of Science in Forestry instructors, 6 Liberal Arts instructors and 12 field technicians
with over 300 Students enrolled in 2 degree programs.
The history of the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries began when Dr. Henry A.
Sojor, who took the helm of leadership on August 17, 1991 as the second president of Central
Visayas Polytechnic College (CVPC) now NORSU, offered Associate in Agricultural Technology
(AAT) in the then College of Technician Education in pursuant to its mission as mandated in its
charter, Batas Pambansa Bilang 401 “...to give professional and technical training in science
and technology advanced specialized instruction in literature, philosophy, arts and sciences,
besides providing for the promotion of scientific and technological researches” of which Dr.
Julito B. Aleta served as the AAT program coordinator.
In 1995, Bachelor of Agricultural Technology (BAT) and Bachelor of Science in Forestry
(BSF) were offered in the College of Arts and Sciences under the leadership of Dr. Romula S.
Aleta. Designated to assist her in the two programs was Dr. Venancia L. Olasiman who served
as her assistant dean in 1996-1998.
Second semester of 1998, Dr. Venancia L. Olasiman submitted a proposal to the Planning,
Research, Extension Services and International Linkages (PREXIL) Office - creating a College
of Agriculture and Forestry — at the time PREXIL, was headed by Dr. Eva M. Moncada. The
proposal was endorsed by her to the President's Office.
In January 1999, the Board of Trustees (BOT) approved the creation of the College of
Agriculture and Forestry (CAF). So, June 1999, CAF started to operate. The college occupied
two rooms of the third floor of the Engineering building at NORSU Main Campus Il in
Bajumpandan, Dumaguete City. The building at Western part of Bajumpandan Campus was
under construction at that time. Second semester of SY 1999-2000, CAF moved to where it is
Aiming at serving the community in a wider scope, CVPC acquired property at Sitio Tuwang,
Brgy. Poblacion, Pamplona, Negros Oriental in the year 1995 and subsequently created CAF
Pamplona extension. The 6.1 hectare land area was donated by Hon. John Henry R. Osmefia,
one of the major stockholders of the Pamplona Golf and Country Club and plantation, who was
a senator that time. It was later entrusted to Alejandro Saycon who got the designation as the
caretaker. Mr. Alan E. Faburada, of the personnel of the college, was given the task to develop
the agricultural production of the college extension as the farm manager.
Due to its exceptional performance, the institution metamorphosed from being a practicum
site into being the core of instruction, research, extension and production in the field of
Agroforestry. In June 2008, under the jurisdiction of Dr. Henry A. Sojor, the 1st university
president, CAF Pamplona extension started operating with the Associate in Agricultural Science
program where the first harvest festival was conducted. To allow its first graduates to continue,
Bachelor of Science in Agriculture was then offered in June, 2010. In the same year, Bachelor
of Science in Forestry and Bachelor of Arts in General Curriculum were also added.
Then, under the administration of the 2nd University President, Dr. Don Vicente C. Real,
fishery course was offered once again in NORSU Bais making the college as, "College of
Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries" He dubbed the college as the "show window" of the
university where grand harvest festival was conducted with lectures and fora integrated to
present new agricultural technologies to the people of the province, most especially the farmers
from the adjacent cities and municipalities.
At present, CAFF continues embracing success at its greater heights under the able
leadership of Dr. Joel P. Limson, the 3rd university president and Dr. Darlyn B. Posas, the dean.
New infrastructures were built in the campus and one of which is the University Farm
Technology Training and Development Center. Green houses were also added to maximize
vegetable and crop production. MTCL was expanded and building for instruction was also
renovated. The campus has also been considered as a haven for Forestry with the presence of
the PFEN Demonstration farm.
Now, CAFF keeps on expanding its services to the community as it actively engages in
instruction, research, extension and production activities in response to the vision and mission
of the university.
Soar high, CAFFamilia!
