Mapúa University’s President Dr. Reynaldo B. Vea signed the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Honeywell UOP’s Director of R&D Dr. Medhat Tannous, with Dr. Santi Kulprathipanja the Director for Southeast Asia R&D at Bayleaf Intramuros last October 25, 2017.
Chemical Engineering program chair Dr. Alvin R. Caparanga had been named to succeed Prof. Luz L. Lozano as the Dean of the School of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry (ChE-Chm) when she retired on her 65th birthday last September 21.
Meanwhile, Prof. Edna J. Calderon will formally take up the post of chemistry program chair on October 2, another post vacated by the recently-retired dean. Caparanga will also simultaneously serve as the program chair for chemical engineering, a position he has occupied since mid-2003.
In a span of 6 months, faculty members and students of the Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) program had published and presented a total of 12 papers on 3 different international platforms. Prof. Menandro C. Marquez, Prof. Ruth R. Aquino, and Prof. Larry T. Reyes, along with students from the MSE program, recently brought their work to Malaysia, Thailand, and Japan.
Good day everyone!
We are glad to invite you to participate in our 46th CHE-CHM Student Research Colloquium to be held on June 15, 2017, 10:30 AM at NW10B. Here are the presenters, their research titles and thesis adviser:

Engr. Victor J. Lau, Jr, Engr. Joshua Allen A. Alcaraz, and Engr. Gregory Emmanuel J. Mendoza respectively garnered the 2nd, 3rd, and 10th highest scores in the May 2017 Chemical Engineering Licensure Examination held last May 24, 25, and 26.
Thirty-three (33) out of fifty-two (52) examinees from Mapua University passed the exam, yielding a passing rate of 63.46% which is well above the national passing rate of 55.26%.
Congratulations to our newly minted Chemical Engineers! Viva Mapua!
Ken Yamauchi, a student of the School of Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Biological Engineering and Material Science Engineering, is part of the team that garnered 2nd place in the 12th Executives’ Challenge held at the Electrical Engineering Auditorium in University of the Philippines Los Baños on February 12, 2017.

The Danish Hydraulic Institute (DHI) recently introduced its set of flagship softwares for water modelling called MIKE powered by DHI on a ceremonious introduction last May 16, 2016 at the MIT Research Building.
MIKE powered by DHI was handed by DHI Regional Software Sales Executive Pierre Hoevelt and introduced a bit about the software. MIKE boasts 10 software packages under the MIKE suite that covers all the aspects of the water cycle such as ocean modelling, urban flood water, rainwater, dams and reservoirs, sewerage systems, and many more.
The Philippine Technological Council - Accreditation and Certification Board for Engineering and Technology (PTC-ACBET) granted the BS Chemical Engineering program along with three other programs of Mapua Institute of Technology (MIT), the full accreditation status during their institutional visit last February 12, 2016.
