A RESEARCH team from the De La Salle University bagged three awards in the International Conference for Energy, Aquatech and Sustainability 2022 held in South Korea earlier this month.

The Hydraulics and Water Resources Engineering research team from the Department of Civil Engineering reaped three best presentation awards.

The team led by HWR Division head Dr. Marla Maniquiz-Redillas presented its research on the on-site and online hybrid sessions on water and environment, climate change and sustainable development.

Miguel Enrico Robles, an undergraduate, was recognized for his study titled “Investigating heavy metal buildup processes in road deposited sediments and its contribution to urban runoff nonpoint source pollution.”

Master’s student Engineer Denzel Keith Urieta was acknowledged for his research “Evaluating the hydrological response of a developing tropical catchment for sustainable watershed management.”

Meanwhile, doctorate student Engineer Gil Cruz won an award for his study “First flush analysis and water quality volume determination for the design of low impact development control in an urban catchment area.”

“In addition to presenting in the conference’ parallel sessions, the Lasallian delegates also attended technical tours inside Hanyang University ERICA Campus and the Korean Institute of Industrial Technology–Korea Additive Manufacturing Innovation Center (KITECH KAMIC) in Siheung City,” the university said.

“The technical tours focused on 3D printing advancements, industrial AI, and manufacturing technologies,” it added.

Delegates from various countries in Asia, Europe, Africa, North America, and South America were also present in the international conference organized by Korea Academic Society for Appropriate Technology.
