UST Welcomes New Rector, Chancellor

As the academic year 2012-2013 opened, the University of Santo Tomas installed its 96th rector, Rev. Fr. Herminio V. Dagohoy, O.P., PhD, and its new Vice Chancellor, Rev. Fr. Gerard Francisco P. Timoner, III, O.P.,right after the Misa de Apertura, which was celebrated by the Apostolic Nuncio to the Philippines, Archbishop Giuseppe Pinto, at the UST Chapel.

The UST Alumni, members of the diplomatic corps, heads of Universities, professional organizations, cultural institutions, support staffs, student leaders, students, faculty members, Regents, the Board of Trustees, the Academic Senate, administrative officials, academic officials, and Heads of Colleges flocked to welcome the new Rector and Vice Chancellor.

When Dagohoy received the news that the Holy See already confirmed the nomination as 96th rector, he was enveloped by fear and really prayed hard for courage. “Believing that it is the part of His Divine plan, God entrusted this work upon me to bring it to completion,”Dagohoy said during his inaugural address. He is grateful to former rector, Fr. dela Rosa, for establishing a strong foundation by which the UST is standing today.

“I believe that this occasion should center on the institution, to the Royal and Pontifical University of Santo Tomas.”Dagohoy emphasizes that the installation of the rector should focus on the university’s mission, its ability to generate knowledge and new discoveries, its service to the church, and its contribution to the Philippine society.

Dagohoy was ordained to the priesthood on September 28, 1994 at the Santo Domingo Church in Quezon City and previously held posts as Prior/Superior of the Santo Domingo Convent, QC, and Caleruega, Batangas.  He was the Rector of Angelicum College in QC. The 96th rector also worked as Prior of the Priory of St. Thomas Aquinas in UST and the chief finance officer of UST Hospital.

“My beloved Thomasians, today, I hope that you will walk with me with courage, as we realize our shared visions of UST’s future.” Dagohoy said as he ended his speech.

System Design of a Machine Vision Aided Autonomous Tail Tagging Robot Driven Using Fuzzy Logic Control

This project was inspired by the global interest on technological improvements, specifically in robotics it aims to develop a prospect competition using a similar set-up with the Micro Robot World Cup Soccer Tournament (MiroSot).

This study will engage in several systems to develop a dynamic sharp sensing and real-time control of robot using a computer for aid in vision and in decision making. Two mobile robots will simultaneously try to tag the tail of the opposing robot while preventing its tail to be tagged. The tail-tagging vision system provides robot sensing. Image processing and analysis is then executed by the host computer for localization, or object recognition. A fuzzy control system provides logic to the mobile robot based on pre-defined actions settable by stat allocation. Finally, a Bluetooth communications system bridges contact on Quad-core CPUs – adopting multi-threaded software development techniques. This features enhances the speed response of the system. The robot hardware designed to be compact, as it adheres to micro-robot sizes. A pair of Faulhaber 2224 brushless DC motors, a Bluetooth module, and a Zilog microcontroller constitutes the robot electronics.

The investment in powerful hardware backed by well-engineered software makes the system design competition ready._

Use of Active Carbon as Filtering Material for Payatas Leachate Residue

A power Transmission mechanism for a multi-bladed windmill, which will be installed at Calaruega Retreat House, was designed to drive a centrifugal pump to transport rain water collected from a pond to a storage tank which is used to water plants.

A number of factors were considered in the design such as the athmospheric conditions of the area and the location of the wind pump. Some Existing wind pumps were also analyzed by the researchers in order to gain more knowledge in designing . Inspection trips to Calaruega were conducted in order to make ocular assessment of the area.

Engineering Women’s Volleyball team clobbers CFAD for bronze

The women’s volleyball team of the Faculty of Engineering managed to wriggle its way to the third spot with a 25-16, 19-25, 25-11, 25-14 victory in a best-of-three game over the College of Fine Arts and Design (CFAD) in the Thomasian Goodwill Games, held on September 30, 2012.

The team, composed of 14 members:  team captain Kimberly Obcena, Kamil Jansen Sales, Karen Ray Isaguirre, Anna Elica, Hazelle Joyce Viernes, libero Joyce Ong, Samantha Jann Chanco, Princess Bravo, Marie Joy Yamauchi, Reina Adora Lupac, Kyle Jan Gallardo, Rizzia Abrantes, and Georgette Sol Dacer, recovered from a disastrous 2nd set with Alsola, Viernes and Lupac powering Engineering team through the rest of the game at the UST Quadricentennial Pavilion.

Headed by their coach, Kris Dimaculangan, the first six players were Alsola, Ong, Obcena, Elica, Chanco, and Sales. During the 1st set, Alsola spiked the ball to Ong of CFAD, unable to receive it. Halfway through the end, Chanco gave a kill at the empty left side of CFAD’s back court. During the set point, Sales’ service hit the tip of the net, ending the 1st set.

Things didn’t go well in the 2nd set. Chanco dived for the ball which Viernes failed to block after an attack by CFAD Spiker, Ong. Chanco suffered minor right arm injury. Chua of CFAD ended the set by an ace, unable to receive by the Eng’g libero, Ong.

The 3rd and final set was flawlessly played. Sales dug for the ball, but was spiked by CFAD outside the Eng’g court. Both sets ended with a kill shot of Alsola and Lupac, respectively.


AMV defeats Engineering Men’s Volleyball, Settles for 4th in the standings

The Engineering Men’s Volleyball team places 4th in the final standings of the Thomasian Goodwill Games after being defeated by the AMV Men’s Volleyball team during their match-up held on September 20, 2012 at the Quadricentennial Pavillion court. The game was a battle for the 3rd place spot in the Thomasian Goodwill Men’s Volleyball games.

The match lasted a full five sets with the Engineering team starting with a strong first set with a score of 25-13 against the AMV team. The Engineering team struggled to keep up with the AMV team’s stronger offensive play during the 2nd and 3rd sets. Both sets ended with scores of 18-25 in favor of the AMV team.

The Engineering team made a comeback on the 4th set with tougher defensive play despite having no libero in the game. The set ended with a score of 25-21. This forces the game to push through the final set with a score of 25-21. The team was able to take the lead on the first half of the set, but the AMV team fought back, staying close with the Engineering team’s score. Unfortunately, the Engineering team struggled with service and unforced errors allowing the AMV Volleyball team to eventually take victory with a score of 15-10 settling for 3rd in the Thomasian Goodwill games standings.

During the match up, one of the Engineering team’s best assets was its aggressive play and being effective at blocking and middle spiking.
