Brenan Labaya and Jess Angelson Lascuña of CTU Main had all participants thinking what it felt like to hold the championship trophy and the 60,000 cheque again  after 5 years  following victory at the National Civil Engineering Quiz 2018 on Saturday, September 22.

Among  126 teams, CTU (B) hurdled at the final round to beat 1st runner-up Technological University of the Philippines-Manila (A)  and 2nd runner-up St. Loius College (A). CTU Team (A) also  landed 4th place.

CTU Team B goes through the preliminary exam of the competition at UP Diliman on Saturday.

“The win was expected.  ..part of the motivation was being finalist last year ,” Coach Joenel Lumbab said.

Defining the department is a culture that subjects  quizzers to advanced review.  “[They] enrolled in review centers because not all topics are taught in class, not to mention   the broad scope of engineering),”he added.

Dean Edgar Ambos and CE Dept. chair Engr. Evalinda Pelimer   have to look forward to more championships as training camp involved faculty and alumni who were board topnotchers.

The National Civil Engineering Quiz 2018 is part of the annual event—National Civil Engineering Summit—that includes  symposium, career fair, and incethink. UICP
