New NIP Building
The National Institute of Physics Research Wing was formally inaugurated last January 25, 2005. It is located along C.P. Garcia Ave. in the UP Diliman Campus. The building is meant to house the various research groups and laboratories of the institute, and some facilities have already been established. The Research Wing serves not only NIP’s research projects but its educational thrust too, with its new classrooms and teaching laboratories. Students of service courses in General Physics attend their laboratory classes here. Meanwhile, undergraduate students in the BS Physics and BS Applied Physics programs benefit from laboratories for advanced physics, electronics, and computational physics subjects. Similarly, the building is the venue for several lecture classes. And also, some administrative departments of NIP now hold office in the Research Wing. With these new facilities, the new NIP Research Wing is the current pride of the institute, and will only grow in importance during the coming years of NIP’s service not only to the UP community but to the country’s science and technology aspirations as a whole.
