ENGINEERING CONFERENCE 2015

U P
Established in 1954, the University of the Philippines Chemical
Engineering Society, Incorporated, more popularly known as UP
KEM, is one of the largest socio-academic organizations recognized
by the College of Engineering and the University. As a testament to
its unwavering excellence, UP KEM has been awarded as the Best
Organization by the Engineering Organization Excellence Awards
(EOEA) in 2009, 2011, and 2012. To strengthen its ties to both its
Chemical Engineering and Chemistry counterpart students all over
Luzon and Metro Manila, UP KEM affiliated itself with the Philippine
Institute of Chemical Engineers Junior Chapter Luzon (PIChE JCL)
and the Philippines Association of Chemistry Students, Incorporated
(PACS, Inc.) in 1983 and 2007, respectively.
As it celebrates its 61st anniversary this 2015, UP KEM continues to
live by its traditions of academic excellence, holistic development,
and prime professionalism in service to its members, the College, the
University, and several local communities.

Morning Session:
The morning session of the symposium will feature 3
resource speakers who will be discussing an overview of
Biotechnology in the Philippines and recent researches
and innovations in the field.
Afternoon Session:
The afternoon session will consist of 4 parallel sessions
which will discuss different subtopics under Biotechnology.
Afterwards, the students will be grouped and will undergo
a workshop session where they will be presented with
a problem which they need to solve by applying their
knowledge in Chemical Engineering as well as the
knowledge they acquired from the symposium. Then, the
groups will have a chance to present their solutions in their
respective parallel sessions which will be assessed by
selected judges. The group with the best presentation from
each parallel session will be awarded accordingly.

INDUSTRY

Biofuels are alternative fuels made from plant


and plant-derived resources. It is mainly used for
transportation. There are two types: bioethanol and
biodiesel. Bioethanol is the principal fuel used as
replacement for the road transportation. Bioethanol is
mainly produced by fermentation of cellulose (starch)
obtained from maize and sugar cane. Biodiesel, on
the other hand, is basically derived from oil crops
such as rapeseed, palm, and soybean. It is projected
that by 2025, energy demand will grow up to 50%.
Energy is obtained from fossil fuels, a limited, nonrenewable, and polluting resource. Greenhouse

Biotechnology provides many applications in the


manipulation and processing of various organisms
and natural systems beyond the capabilities of
conventional technology. Industrial Biotechnology,
otherwise known as white Biotechnology, deals with
these on a massive scale and is now another tool in
the belts of Chemical Engineers everywhere. Such
innovations have translated to not only reduced costs
and environmental impact for the industry, but also to
better utilization of limited raw materials. A new field,
Biochemical Engineering, has also been created to
better explore the possibilities that Biotechnology can

as paper, food processing, and textiles, to fields like

The majority of todays medications, therapeutic


agents, and diagnostics products are made available
by applying biotechnological tools and processes.
The use of living organisms has brought advances
in the mitigation of diseases through its aid in the
development and manufacturing of pharmaceuticals.
As Chemical Engineers, our job is to scale-up
biological processes to meet the needs of the largescale production of pharmaceuticals. Biotechnology
in healthcare primarily aims to improve life, possibly
lengthening it, and heal the planet.

Environmental Technology refers to the field that aims


to develop, use, and regulate biological systems
for many purposes. Such purposes are inclusive of,
but not limited to, the remediation of contaminated
environments and the substitution of current industrial
processes for environment-friendly processes.

2.

A team who fails to appear on-stage before


the start of the Eliminations Phase shall
automatically lose by default.

3.

Contestants shall be given a time limit to


answer the questions. Each team will be given
a copy of the problem while the Quiz Master
is still reading the problem. The timer will start
after the question has been read by the Quiz
Master twice. Contestants may start solving
while the question is still being read by the Quiz
Master.

4.

5.

In the event that the answer to the question


is displayed prematurely, the question in
consideration will be invalidated and the Inter-U
Committee shall replace the question with a
new one under the same domain and phase.
Final Answer
a.

Each team shall write their answers on


the answer boards provided, and these

shall be submitted to the ushers assigned


to the team at the expiration of every
questions time limit. All final answers
must be encircled or boxed. Answers
that are not encircled or boxed will not be
credited.
b.

The answers written on the answer


slate may still be changed with a new
answer if the time limit for the question
has not yet expired. The new answer
will be considered final once it has been
encircled or boxed.

c.

Rounding off of calculated values should


be done in the final answers only. Freefloating decimals should be kept during
the preliminary calculations. The number
of significant figures or decimal places
in the final answer will be stated in the
question and the even-rule of rounding off
of numbers must also be strictly followed.
All answers should have appropriate
units.

d.

If the required answer is a word or a


phrase, correct spelling, including
capitalization and punctuation, will be
checked. Abbreviations and acronyms
shall not be accepted unless otherwise
stated.

7.

The Top 50% (round up) at the end of the


Wildcard Phase will also qualify for the Final
Phase. In case there are multiple teams
vying for the last qualified slot, sudden death
questions will be given to break the tie.

8.

The scores of the qualified teams for the


Wildcard and Final Phases will be reset to zero.

9.

In case of a tie for the Final Phase, clincher


questions will be given. These questions will
come solely from the Chemical Engineering
domain.

resident faculty members from the Department
of Chemical Engineering, the Institute of
Chemistry, the Institute of Mathematics, the
National Institute of Physics, and the Institute
of Civil Engineering of the University of the
Philippines Diliman. No judge shall act as a
coach of any participating team. The judges
decisions regarding all protests that may be
raised during the quiz show shall be final.

c.

A team will be given a warning count


for either using a calculator for a
Mathematics question; or failure of the
team to submit their answer slate to their
respective usher upon the quiz masters
declaration of time expiration. After three
(3) warnings, the team shall automatically
be disqualified.
Coaching, including but not limited to
audible and visual signals, from the
audience will result to the invalidation
of the given question. The Inter-U
Committee reserves the right to replace
the question in cases such as this.

8.

Cheating, in any form, of any member of a


team will result to his/her teams automatic
disqualification.

Scoring
In all phases, correct answers will be awarded
with ten (10) points for Easy Questions, fifteen
(15) points for Average Questions, and twenty
(20) points for Difficult Questions.

9.

Substitution
The substitution of contestants is permitted only
after each round. The Inter-U Committee should
be approached regarding the substitution
before the first question of the next round is
delivered.

The Company Mixer will be a one-hour and twentyminute part of the program. Participants will be grouped
according to the number of companies present (i.e. if there
are 30 companies present and 120 participants, there will
be 30 groups of 4). Each group will be given two minutes
and 30 seconds to interact with the representatives from
the company. After that, the group will move onto the next
company. This will be done until the groups have been to
all the companies.
