Students from the Institute of Civil Engineering, University of the Philippines Diliman won the championship in the Eco-concrete Competition at the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Spring 2019 Convention in Quebec, Canada. The students used locally abundant Diliman tuff as partial replacement to cement and waste glass in making an environmentally friendly concrete. The students won over schools from North and South America, Europe and Asia.

National University of Singapore (NUS) and University of the Philippines (UP) officials discussed prospects for stronger academic collaboration between the two universities during the meeting held in the UP Board of Regents Room, Quezon Hall, UP Diliman, on February 19, 2019. The NUS delegation aimed to “learn about UP’s plans on research, innovation, entrepreneurship and commercialization, which could be building blocks that will facilitate the flow of ideas, talent and access to markets, and funding opportunities between Singapore and the Philippines.”
