DOST names Dungca in 50 Men & Women of Science

Dr. Jonathan Dungca, Associate Professor of the CE Department, was chosen by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) as one of the 50 Men and Women of Science after being recognized as an Outstanding DOST Scholar. Dr. Dungca was recognized "for his interests in the development of soil liquefaction potential maps and various techniques to assess the effects of soil liquefaction to structures." Dungca was a finalist in the 2008 Lasallian Excellence Awards-Students’ Search for Outstanding Teachers, and is a volunteer speaker and lecturer of the “Adopt-an-Engineering School Program” of DLSU-Manila, actively fostering relationships among Civil Engineering faculty and students in the University and in other schools. The 50 Men and Women of Science are the outstanding scientists who made it in the Top 10 list of the following categories: DOST Scholars, Researchers, Technology Adoptors, Science Educators, Science Communicators, and Administrators. For the Outstanding DOST Scholars, selection is based on the scholar’s accomplishments in science and technology, peer recognition, and national and international awards in science and technology. The announcement of the 50 Men and Women of Science was held in the Gabi ng Ginintuang Sinag: 50 years Celebration of DOST last June 9, 2008 at the UP Theater. (Reference: DLSU Newsletter 2401)

Dr. Jonathan Dungca is my former professor in Reinforced Concrete Design (RCPRINS) (special class). Congratulations, Doc Dungca!!!
He is such a caring prof. He would not let you lost in oblivion for a certain topic until he sees you answering and explaining his "back"-question/s...That's why i admire him of that teaching strategy...Add to that his experiences in the "Real" design practice, wayback from his PRO-CONSULT(?) days...
