Two DLSU CE undergrad thesis groups won at the Civil Engineering Undergraduate Project Competition sponsored by the University of the Philippines Association of Civil Engineering Students (UPACES) during the National CE Summit 2010 held at UP Diliman. The 1st place award was given to the group of Patricia Adiaz and David Vidad with Dr. Bernardo Lejano as adviser for their thesis on "Effects of exterior post-tensioning on retrofitting deformed wide flange steel beams." The group of Morgan Say, Mickel Fernandez and Luigi Franco with Engr.
