CE Dept has a LEED expert in Kaye Martinez

DLSU CIV alumnus , Engr. Klarissa Martinez, a LEED and DPWH Materials Engineer accredited professional joins the CE Department as a part-time faculty teaching Building Design and Hydraulics Lab courses. She will be an asset to the department especially now that Sustainability and Green Engineering concepts are starting to be included in some of the undergraduate and graduate courses.

Meet the CE Department's ASF: Joenel

Joenel Galupino graduated BSCE and was recognized for his Outstanding Contribution to the CE Department in 2009. And he still continues his dedicated service to the university and the CE students and faculty by serving as an Academic Service Faculty (ASF) in-charge of the laboratories of the CE Department starting 2013. Meet our humble and energetic laboratory coordinator.

Chula U - AUN/SEED-Net Scholars teach part-time at CE Dept

AUN/SEED-Net scholars who graduated Master of Engineering from Chulalongkorn University returned to the Philippines and many of them applied for a part-time teaching position at the CE Department. In 2014, three alumni - Daniel Valerio, Erica Uy and Jamiel Jayme started teaching at DLSU. Valerio and Jayme are still teaching part-time while Uy is now a full-time ERDT scholar taking PhD-CE at DLSU. Last 2015, two more alumni - Maria Emilia Sevilla and Marcus Kyle Baron also started teaching at CE Dept. Here is an introduction of the two alumni and former scholars.

CES holds Alternative Classes for Students

The Civil Engineering Society (CES) has organized various seminars to enhance and compliment the Lasallian education of civil engineering students, This Feb. 12, 2016, two seminars are scheduled. These seminars have been tagged as alternative classes or 4th hour activities by some faculty members. Incentives in several classes will be given for attending these seminars.

The Philippines is known for its numerous natural disasters and their devastating effects to people and property. As future civil engineers, what can you do to avoid further loss brought about by catastrophes. Listen to resource speakers Dr. Renato U. Solidum Jr. and Dr. Enrico C. Paringit as they share their knowledge on disasters and their mitigation.Happening this February 12, 2016 at the Brother Andrew Gonzalez Hall Rm 903 (A903) from 1 to 4 pm, Civil Engineering Society presents the CE Disaster Risks and Mitigation Seminar.

Do you want to help the society but have no chance in college? Do you want to live the Lasallian virtue of being in service for others especially the less fortunate? Are you bored from the lectures and lessons and want to explore your learnings outside the four corners of the classroom? Worry no more as Civil Engineering Society presents BEYOND BUILDINGS 1. Come by at Y502 from 1230PM-4PM this Friday and let this seminar embody the future Lasallian civil engineer in you.

Dr. Garciano talks on "Math and Civil Engineering" to Grade 10 students

In celebration of Math Awareness Month, St. Paul College Pasig invited Dr. Garciano of the Civil Engineering Department to give a talk on Mathematics to a class of 10th Graders. During the talk, Dr. Garciano shared to the students, how math is used in everyday life, how it helped him in his career and how it can be a tool to solve “out-of-the box” real life problems.

This talk was also a golden opportunity to introduce to “our future Civil Engineering students” the Civil Engineering program of DLSU and its four (4) specializations. He also mentioned that DLSU has produced top notch Civil Engineers and who knows the next one might be from this class.
