The 2017 Manila Water Foundation Prize for Engineering Excellence
The Manila Water Foundation Prize for Engineering Excellence is a nationwide search for engineers and scientists who manifest excellent engineering and scientific competence, inspiring passion to make a difference, and outstanding commitment to the development of communities resulting in projects that champion water, sanitation, environment, and sustainability.
This undertaking is an initiative of the Manila Water Foundation in collaboration with the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and the Philippine Technological Council (PTC).
DOST and PTC are the perfect partners for this endeavor to recognize inspiring and laudable Filipino engineers as they bring so much to the table. DOST is the government’s executive department at the forefront of science and technology-related projects in line with national development while PTC acts as the umbrella organization of all accredited professional engineering organizations recognized by the Professional Regulation Commission and self-certifying engineering professional organizations in the country.
With Manila Water Foundation’s commitment to uplifting the quality of life of marginalized communities through sustainable projects, DOST’s mandate to provide direction of the country's scientific and technological efforts for the benefit of its people, and PTC’s crucial role as the focal point for advocacies that impact on the engineering profession and engineering practice, international linkages, and continual improvement and promotion of the global competitiveness of the Filipino engineers, the 2017 Manila Water Foundation Prize for Engineering Excellence aims to reach out to more Filipino engineers and inspire more of them to pursue innovative projects for the betterment of the Philippines, one community at a time.
