Inter-University Seminar on Transportation and the Environment

15 December 2008, Sulo Hotel, Diliman, Quezon City

Inter-University Seminar

The Inter-University Seminar on Transportation and the Environment was organized by the DOST-JSPS Core University Program on Environmental Engineering Research Group 2 (Urban Infrastructure Development and Environmental Management) with the support of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST). The objectives of the seminar are: a) to understand the current research topics related to transportation and environment that are being investigated by undergraduate and graduate students in the different universities; and, b) exchange of information and views regarding the researches on transportation and environment and validation of the research direction of Research Group 2 under the JSPS Core University Program on Environmental Engineering.

Students from universities participating in the Core University Program presented their research topics and research project outputs that tackled the following specific fields of transportation:

  • Public Transportation – Planning, Vehicles and Fuels
  • Land Use and Transport/Sustainable Transport Planning
  • Traffic Engineering
  • Pavement Engineering
  • Non-Motorized Transport
  • Road Safety

A total of 18 research outputs/topics were presented by undergraduate and graduate students from the University of the Philippines Diliman (UPD), University of the Philippines at Los Baños (UPLB), De La Salle University (DLSU) Manila, Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) Manila and Mapua Institute of Technology (Mapua Tech) Manila.  A total of 62 faculty members, research and extension staff, graduate and undergraduate students participated in the whole-day seminar.
