Both presented papers during the parallel sessions on education process.

Abella presented “The Challenges and Opportunities of Environmental Catalysis in the Natural Gas Based Industry and the Academe in the Philippines,” a paper she co-authored with Dr. Susan Gallardo, also of the Chemical Engineering Department.

For her part, Velasco talked on “Enhancing Education Through Total Quality Management.” Only two Philippine universities, DLSU-Manila and the University of the Philippines, were represented in the conference.

Organized by Persatuan Insinyur Indonesia, the conference carried the theme, “The Natural Gas Based Industry in the 21st Century: A Challenge for Engineering Education in the Free Trade Era.” The conference served as venue to present the state of natural gas based industry and its role in the development of South East Asia and the Pacific.
