## History of CICS

The College of Information Technology traces its origin from the College of Arts and Sciences. Through the demands of technology, the CSU-G Administration through the assistance of the Parents and Teachers Association (PTA) by donating computers to be used in the laboratory courses, Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT) was first offered during the school year 1998-1999 with Dr. Calixto B. Alicay as the Coordinator. When Dr. Alicay was assigned to other college, Engr. Richard R. Ayuyang succeeded him in 2003 as the Program Coordinator. Due to growing number of enrollees in this course, it was separated as a college in August 7, 2006 with Prof. Laurine A. Balatico as the Dean.

On June 9, 2014, a Special Order, OP-5005-SO-2015-488 was issued to Engr. Richard R. Ayuyang appointing him as Associate Dean of the college up to May 31, 2015.  Due to his exemplary performance, his deanship continued.

At present, the College of Information and Computing Sciences continues to innovate its program to produce quality graduates to meet the standard in the human resource global market. Indeed, it is one of the biggest colleges in terms of population and one of the colleges with high employability rate.
