Mr. James B. Salig, Jr. of the Department of Physics in the College of Arts and Sciences will attend an advance schooling in Parallel Programming and Parallel Architecture for high computing to be held in Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste Italy on October 27 to November 07, 2014. This was announced by Physics Chair Normie Jean D. Sajor during the flag raising ceremony on October 07, 2014 at the Administration Building Ground.
Salig is a young bachelor from Clarin Misamis Occidental, is a 26 year-old faculty member of the Physics Department of the University/ CMU and a graduate of Master of Science in Physics at Mindanao State University- Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT).
In an up close interview with Salig, he said “ I am happy somehow, but deep inside, I am also nervous because this will be the first time that I will be travelling outside the country. There were few times I felt I have to surrender my passion of teaching because no matter how hard I try to become effective, I still feel that I am not productive with the teaching field that I choose. I know, this is an opportunity for me to excel my skills not only in teaching but for my lifetime research in neuroscience”.
He added that the University has been very supportive in his travel for extending financial support and the approval of his request to travel on official business.
