COVID-19 Innovations by Mapǔa's School of Civil, Environmental and Geological Engineering

The School of Civil, Environmental and Geological Engineering led by Dean Francis Aldrine A. Uy, in collaboration with engineers from other departments and USHER Technologies made 2 innovations to support our government's efforts to fight COVID-19.

The first was a low cost mobile disinfection chamber also known as the "GOCLEAN Chamber". The idea is for these chambers to be placed in all entrances and requires people to get disinfected before they can go inside the building. The disinfection happens for a few seconds, wherein a mist of ethyl alcohol is emitted inside the chamber.
