Final presentations of undergraduate researches and proposals – March 2012

April 2012


Undergraduate students under the Transportation Engineering Group of the Institute of Civil Engineering of the University of the Philippines Diliman presented last March 26, 2012. A total of 17 presentation were made including 12 for completed studies and 5 research proposals. One presentation was deferred as the group was still analyzing their data and could not make the deadline for draft manuscripts.

The final presentations of completed undergraduate researches were as follows:

  • Travel Time Estimation of Jeepneys: The Case of UP Diliman, Quezon City (Arlish M. Carpio and Joseph Rei Mark Co)
  • Assessment of the Philippine National Railway Commuter Line Services (Lara Kriselle B. Paragas and Ma. Katrina Q. Rañeses)
  • Applicability of Unconventional Transit Systems in Selected Metropolitan Areas in the Philippines (Joselle Patricia E. Civil and Maiko G. Tenorio)
  • Estimation of Traffic Signal Setting for the University Avenue-Commonwealth Avenue Intersection (Aimah C. Busok and Chrislene D. Calivo)
  • A Road Safety Assessment Toolkit for Metro Manila (Neil Kendrick L. Sy)
  • Analysis of Operation of Electric Tricycles (Demi Anne C. Obediencia and Ruth Noemi F. Sloot)
  • Accident Risk by Mode of Public Road-Based Passenger Transport in Metro Manila (Walter T. Crisologo)
  • Measuring Delay Caused by U-turn as a Traffic Control Facility (Neil Angelo G. Luzano and Mark Anthony G.Tolentino)
  • Comparative Analysis of Male and Female Public Transport Bus Drivers in Metro Manila (Benilda M. Fonseca)
  • Effects of Road Features in the Vulnerability of Child Pedestrians (Jordan A. Villanueva)
  • Investigation of Factors Affecting PUV-related Accidents Involving Pedestrians along Commonwealth Avenue  (Mark Alain C. Norombaba)
  • Assessment on Parking Management System in Shopping Malls (Denryl Caesar S. Cortuna)

Deferred final presentation:

  • Estimating Ridership for a Proposed Transit System for UP Diliman (Jessica Mae J. Anaque and Kylie Dianne Erika M. Landingin)

The final presentations of research proposals for implementation in the next semester were as follows:

  • Perception of Traffic Noise Inside UP Campus  (Michelle Monelle S. Quilatan and John Carlo D. Villar)
  • Traffic Characteristics and Level of Service of Pedestrian Routes along Velasquez – Roces Street of UP Diliman (Angel U. Gacutan and Maria Jenna M. Tan)
  • Determining the Effectiveness of Imposed Speed Reduction Programs Along Commonwealth Avenue (Hessen Noreen Z. Castillo and Hazel E. Maata)
  • Analysis of the Presence of Urban Air Pollutants from Road Vehicles Within UP Diliman (Joshua Carlo S. Padilla and Tsuyoshi A. Sakurai)
  • Determination of the Walkability Index of UP Diliman (Niki Jon Tolentino)

Following are a few photos taken during the final presentations:

Paragas and Raneses presenting on their study on the PNR operations

Civil and Tenorio presenting on their study on unconventional transit systems

Busok and Calivo presenting on their study on the Commonwealth Ave.-University Ave. intersection

Obediencia and Sloot presenting on their study on electric tricycles

We are already looking forward to the implementation of the researches proposed this semester and those that will be proposed in the next semester of a new academic year (starting June 2012). This academic year has been a very fruitful one with many excellent students taking a renewed interest in Transportation Engineering and Planning. I hope there will be more in the next batch of students.
