STUDENTS of Xavier University’s Computer Studies developed automated database systems that will be used by three Jesuit mission schools.

The students, who worked under the supervision of Professor Cristina Amor Cajilla and Dr. Meldie Apag, Dean of the College of Computer Studies, came up with unique and creative databases to manage the schools’  enrollment, registrar’s office and library.

The new systems are expected to improve the consistency of query results, data collection, and data management.

The database systems will be used in the Pangantucan Community High School, Fr. Leoni Memorial School, and St. Therese School of Miarayon in Bukidnon Mission District.

They were turned over to Fr. Jereme Asunto, SJ, school director and Sr. Evangeline Hingpit, MCM, school principal.

“Covid19 pandemic prompted a modification of the university’s educational methods which includes the delivery of service learning hence, the Flexible e-Service Learning approach was  adopted to ensure students’ safety while fulfilling the university’s mission of academic and social formation as they explore their creativity and utilize their acquired knowledge and skills in addressing the communities’ needs,” the university said in a statement.
