Industrial Engineering students proved expertise in research ingenuity in a battle atop the contenders from the University of the Philippines-Diliman during the ORSP National Student Congress with the theme, “Road Quest: Exploring Operations Research in Transportation,” on March 12, 2016. It was a matchup among the nation’s best HEIs: Ateneo de Manila University (1st), CTU (2nd), and UP-Diliman (3rd).
Angel Love Tibon, Joe Aperdo, Mary Jane Pugoy, and Noe Lumapay took their first route to the Case Study Competition and emerged one of the champions. As graduating students, Tibon and Aperdo have undoubtedly left a legacy of excellence in the College of Engineering headed by Dr. Nolasco K. Malabago.
On the one hand, another team bested tough competitions thus clinching the 2nd runner up spot in the Executive Challenge: An Inter-Collegiate Engineering Science Quiz Contest Year IX on February 6 and 7, 2016 at UP-Los Baños.
Daryl Arizo, Rusty Lapus, and Joren Galanida from the Electrical, Civil and Mechanical Engineering Departments comprised the team that rounded up the top three winners across the country. Technological University of the Philippines (TUP)- Manila ranked second while Sorsogon State University successfully seized first prize.
The groups are two of the many delegations the college has supported to maintain the university’s position in national competitions. COE advocates for championships through designated faculty members to mentor the budding engineers in the main campus for years now.
