T.I.P. QC ECE students finish off nat’l electronics engineer competition in 3rd place

Three Electronics Engineering students from the Technological Institute of the Philippines Quezon City (T.I.P. QC) won 3rd place in the recently concluded Institute of Electronics Engineer of the Philippines (IECEP) Quiz Bowl, besting 40 other teams of Electronics Engineering students from different schools from across the country.

Angelito Deocadiz (3rd year), Raiña Isaiah Javier (3rd year), and Michelle Satumbaga (5th year) with backup member Jon Rae Romanillos (2nd year) finished the national competition in the third spot under the guidance of Engr. Chlarisse Dianne Sanchez, earning them certificates, a cash prize, and a scholarship in Excel Review Center per member.

The IECEP Quiz Bowl is an annual event organized by the Institute of Electronics Engineer of the Philippines (IECEP) Quezon City Student Chapter. This year was the IECEP Manila Student Chapter’s first-ever Quiz Bowl event.

All participating teams in this year’s IECEP Quiz Bowl went through an elimination process wherein each member of a team answered a different set of examinations within two hours. Teams were then ranked according to the sum of each member’s scores and only the top 10 teams moved on to the final round.

Since the T.I.P. team ranked 4th in the elimination round, they proceeded to the final round where each team was placed in a breakout room to discuss their answers to the quiz that was divided into easy, average, and difficult rounds.

As an engineering school, T.I.P. actively joins annual competitions such as the IECEP Quiz Bowl to challenge and enhance the technical and analytical skills of its students. Javier, one of the IECEP Quiz Bowl participants, said, “Joining the competition gave me an opportunity to test the knowledge I gained during my years of schooling. Winning the competition helped me realize how near I am towards my goal.”

Engr. Sanchez, the team’s coach, further shares what she wants her ECE students to gain from this annual event, “I want to bring out the best in them, to take them out of their comfort zones, to help them take risks, and open opportunities for them.” She added, “Their success is our success, and winning is just a bonus.”
