A Design Prototype Automatic Transfer Switch for Nueva Vizcaya Provincial Operating Room

Author: Bose, Ronnel C,
Purisima, Rolando M. Jr.
Duclan, Jimmy A.
Adviser: Mr. Angelito G. Capuno
Degree: BSEE

The study is an applied research that deals on the design of an Automatic Transfers Switch intended for the consumption of NVPH Operating Room.

The study was conducted to promote & create cheaper and reliable alternative methods of having Automatic Switch Transfer (ATS). Currently ATS available in the market are expensive that only few institutions can afford. This study will allow establishments enjoy uninterrupted power supply at the least possible cost.

Adviser: Angelito G. Capuno
Degree: BSEE

With the worldwide clamor for alternative sources of electric power, this study has been conceived. The solar gadgets have the capacity of 14 w capable of supplying a 14 cu. Feet two door refrigerator. The project at current price with initiates cost Php 43,275.00 per unit and a payback period of 6-7 years.

Use of Biomass Residues as Low-Cost and Viable Alternative Solution of Wastewater Treatment System Design of a Septic Vault

Researcher: Ferdinand H. Marcos

Graduate Degree: MEP-CE


This research study aims to solve sanitation problems and environmental pollution due to the contamination of groundwater using a low cost system, which consists of digestive and leaching chambers having infiltrators by the use of biomass residues (e.g., rice hull, coal, waste wood and coconut coir dust).

The researcher discussed the properties and the components of these biomass residues which are capable of removing wastewater pollutants. Design and construction of this environment-friendly septic vault is also being properly presented. Related literature and studies has also been used and presented for correlation.

Descriptive Study on the Preparedness of the Aldersgate College-College of Engineering and Technology Department for Accreditation as Perceived by the Dean, Faculty, and Staff in Relation to Selected Variables

Researcher: Josephine P. Jasmin

Graduate Degree: MEP-CE


The main objective of the study is to assess the Level of Preparedness of the Aldersgate College-College of Engineering and Technology Department for Accreditation as perceived by the Dean, Faculty, and Staff in relation to Selected Variables.

The descriptive survey method was used in the conduct of the study to depict the actual and present situation of the department on its preparedness for program accreditation. The study was based on the perception of the respondents on the preparedness of the College of Engineering and Technology (CET) department to submit itself for voluntary accreditation. The respondents were composed of the dean, instructors in the department, laboratory supervisors and the head librarian.

The study made use of a documentary analysis with the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) accreditation instrument and the Association of Christian Schools and Colleges-Accrediting Agency Inc. (ACSCU-AAI) accreditation instruments as its basis together with other documents relevant to evaluation and assessment.

A questionnaire which also served as a checklist was used as the main data-gathering instrument to collect data on  profile of the respondents as to age, gender, status, academic and professional preparation, educational and teaching experience, and professional activities; selection policies, performance evaluation, teaching assignments, rank, promotion and tenure, salaries and fringe benefits, faculty development, faculty relationships, research, community service, program of studies, instructional procedures, classroom management, academic performance of students, supervision for effective instruction, instructional administration, co-curricular activities, academic counseling, library administration, personnel and collections, holdings, organization and care of materials, services and use of the library, financial support, physical facilities, laboratory rooms, safety provisions, utilization of equipment and supplies, and maintenance and improvement, specific requirements for chemistry, physics, and computer laboratories.

Unstructured interviews were also utilized by the researcher to increase the validity of the entire research and to verify information directly from the respondents of any information which were drawn from the questionnaire.

Data gathered from both documentary analysis and from the accomplished questionnaire  were tabulated, analyzed and interpreted using the following statistical instruments: a) to treat  data on the profile of the respondents in the engineering department,  frequency distribution and percentage were used; b) in determining the level of perception of the dean, faculty and staff on the preparedness for accreditation in terms of goals and objectives, faculty, instruction, library, and laboratory, mean was used to reinforce the numerical analysis.

A Study of the Design and Construction of a Siphon Structure for the Colocol Irrigation System

Researcher: Jinky P. Rabago

Graduate Degree: MEP-CE


A siphon is one of the canal structures used for irrigating farmlands. It is an irrigation facility used for conveying irrigation water that passes waterways such as creeks, ditches, rivers or in any form of the bodies of water.

Siphon is also used when passing a depression or congested area such as residential neighborhood. It is usually in the form of standard reinforced pipes and box typed conduits. Siphons are designed by hydraulic analysis and structural analysis.

This study is a step by step narration of how siphon is made based on the experience and observation of the author.

The author split the discussion into two parts, the Design Phase and the Construction Phase.

The Design Phase presented the gathered specifications needed in designing, the procedure of hydraulic analysis and the procedure on how to compute its structural analysis.

The Construction Phase presented the techniques of constructing the siphon as observed by the author.

It also included the difficulties and problems encountered by the contractors during the construction phase and suggested solutions and remedial measures formulated to overcome such problems.

Pictures were also taken during construction for better understanding of the techniques and methods of constructing the siphon. Actual photographs were also used for reports and for necessary adjustments to conform with its technical design to its actual construction.

The author hoped that this study will be a great source of information for the people acquiring more knowledge about the subject.
