Garciano & Oreta at XU (CDO) for Earthquake Eng'g Lectures

Announcing the XUERC Earthquake Engineering Lectures
CE Department Chair, Dr. Lessandro Garciano and Prof. Andres Oreta delivered lectures on Earthquake Engineering at Xavier University, Cagayan De Oro City on Oct. 1, 2016. They were invited by DLSU MSCE alumnus, Engr. Dexter Lo who is also the founding director of the XU Engineering Resource Center. PhD students from University College London also presented lectures on the same event which was attended by XU civil engineering students and faculty members.

Oreta and Garciano are presently engaged in a collaborative project, "Safer Communities through Safer Schools" or SCOSSO (meaning "shake" in Italian) where seismic assessment of schools at CDO are conducted. The project is with UCL as the lead partner and XU ERC as cooperating institution. Before going to CDO, the SCOSSO team composed of UCL, DLSU and XU ERC members met at Cebu City during the 6th ASIA Conference on Earthquake Engineering  (6ACEE).
