COE nails national tourneys

By Prof. Elena Aparente, COE Publication Chair

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.
