The diverse discoveries made by our researchers across the Schools of Engineering , Science , Business and Management , and Humanities and Social Science have led to many ground-breaking additions to the global knowledge base as well as practical technologies and applications transferrable to the world. All the sectors of human activities are directly influenced by science and technology.
Communication: The world is a smaller place and technology allows everyone to keep in touch with their families and friends at a more affordable cost. The divorce of �religion’ and science is a strictly Western construct due to the dogmatic and rigid nature of the Abrahamic religions.

They have not failed, however they do not know this in traditional science teaching.
Disadvantage of Science and Technology is that it can be easily manipulated by irresponsible people. So, as a current member of society, we should not only recognize the importance of science and technology , should also strive to study science and technology, using it to arm our minds with courage and determination devotion to science, to develop science and technology with the use of mankind broad-mindedness. Furthermore science is also in our transportation, making cars, jeepneys, LRT,MRT, etc.
