Engineering Week

History

Pre-EWOC Format

Engineering Week began as a collection of competitions and games held by student organizations of the College of Engineering. These included Engineering Smoker of the Engineering Student Association - the first student organization of the university which was transformed to the Engineering Student Council, Awitan of the UP Chemical Engineering Society, and Indakan of Engineering Fraulein (Now Defunct) - the first female-exclusive student organization in the College of Engineering. Some of these events were originally intended and facilitated as university-wide competitions that allowed participants from other colleges, however, engineering organizations like the UP Industrial Engineering Club quickly became consistent participants.

The declaration of Martial Law in 1972 challenged the existence of student organizations and affected participation in the Engineering Week. Political organizations were repressed which caused the dismantling of certain students organizations. Personalities within campus also refused participation due to general suppression of freedom within the university.

EWOC Format

The lifting of Martial Law in 1981 allowed minor improvements to student organization. Dissent grew and became more vocal as the economic crisis of 1983 was exposed, which compounded with the news of Ninoy Aquino's assassination. Student organizations became shelters for discussions and organized activities.

In 1986, the Engineering Student Council transformed the entire event into a competition - by introducing the Engineering Week Overall Championship (EWOC) - to encourage participation. The UP Industrial Engineering Club was awarded the 1st EWOC after deciding to support all competitions with their participation, and quickly established a winning streak that would last until the next decade. The new format of Engineering Week was still held on February and continued without indication of the implications of demonstrations that today is better known as the 1st People Power Revolution. The succeeding Engineering Weeks were held on December to include the Christmas competitions and other activities that occurred like Maskipaps of the Beta Epsilon, and Lantern Parade activities.

Development

The streak of the UP Industrial Engineering Club was disrupted three (3) times during the 90s: twice by being dethroned by UP Chemical Engineering Society and once by campus violence; each leaving a profound effect on the competition.

The UP Industrial Engineering Club Era

The UP Industrial Engineering Club regained its streak in the start of the new millenia held it for 20 years.

Certain changes were effected to encourage participation. In 2013, fielding multiple participants per organization were virtually disallowed in all events. Previously, many events allowed organizations to have multiple representatives, however, this allowed large organizations to field multiple representatives to secure more points. This, however, was offset by the organization of over a hundred day events for Engineering Week. Subsequent Engineering Weeks, however, slowly decreased the number of events and extended the celebration from one week to two weeks.
