Three outstanding Ateneo students from the School of Science and Engineering were named BPI-DOST Science Awardees from Ateneo de Manila University for 2017.

Uyheng (BS Mathematics) [for his research on “The Tail Probability Ratio and Survival Function of General Distributions”].
The awardees were selected based on academic performance, leadership and outstanding research.
The BPI-DOST Science Awards is now on its 27th year and has recognized over 800 outstanding young scientists from across the Philippines. On its 28th year, the awards will further align with the efforts of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), wherein science plays a crucial role to successfully achieve or even exceed the targets set for 2030.
The awarding ceremonies for the 30 awardees from 10 universities were held last April 4, 2017 in the Mind Museum.
The awarding ceremonies in Ateneo will be held on April 18, 2017 at 2:00 PM in Faber Hall 101.
