UP Industrial Engineering Club
We direct our passions into developing our members into holistic individuals through programs implemented the IE way that promote academic excellence, social responsibility, transformative leadership and self-mastery.
We aspire to be the premier youth organization that develops in its members the passion to learn, to lead and to serve for the development of the community around them.
UP IE Club was founded on December 9, 1967 by a group of pioneering students to serve the different needs of the Industrial Engineering populace and to prepare its members for future service to the nation. IE Club has since grown to be the largest student organization in the College of Engineering, maintaining approximately 200 members each year.
Clubbers, as the organization's members call themselves, have excelled in both academic and extra-curricular endeavors. IE Club has consistently produced honor graduates and champions in competitions such as the Engineering Marketing Congress (EMC) and the Philippine Emerging Start-ups Open (PESO). (Since the first EMC in 2005, entries by IE Club members have consistently won the overall championship title, among other awards.) Clubbers have also often held leadership positions in other prominent organizations in the University, such as the University Student Council, the Engineering Student Council, and various auxiliary committees of the College such as the Career Assistance Program for Engineering Students (CAPES), the Engineering Registration Committee (RegCom), and Inhinyero. IE Club received the Engineering Organization Excellence Award in 2007, and has been named Engineering Week Overall Champion 21 out of the 24 times the title has been awarded.
IE Club has been involved in many socio-civic projects including the Gawad Kalinga SAGIP program, and orphanage and hospital visits. Since 2003, the organization has been providing free tutorials to public high school students in Quezon City in preparation for college entrance exams, which has earned for IE Club accreditation by the National Youth Commission as one of the Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations.
In 2010, IE Club's Scholarship Fund project reached an important milestone as the organization sponsored its first ever scholar, a freshman for the academic year 2010-2011. The project, which was conceived in response to the recent 300-percent tuition fee increase that has deterred many students from enrolling in the University, provides financial assistance to high school students eager to continue their education in the national university but are hindered by the lack of finances.
Today, after 43 years of a productive and meaningful existence, IE Club continues its tradition of excellence and maintains its status as the premiere organization of the College of Engineering.
Awards and Activities
UP IE Club received the Engineering Organization Excellence Award (EOEA) in 2007, and has also been awarded the title Engineering Week Over-All Champion (EWOC) twenty-one out of twenty-four times. The organization is also involved in socio-civic projects like orphanage visits, care for the children under DSWD and specialised hospitals in Metro Manila, renovation and refurbishment of public education facilities, and building of housing for the homeless. UP IE Club continues to provide free tutorials to public high school students in Quezon City in preparation for college entrance exams since 2003, during which the organization was accredited and awarded by the National Youth Commission as one of the Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations (TAYO). This year, UP IE Club’s Scholarship Fund has come to its completion in sponsoring an incoming freshman for the school year 2010-2011 as a response to tuition fee increase (TOFI) which has deterred less-fortunate students from pursuing an IE education in the University.
UP IE Club Today
UP IE Club members continually come up with creative ideas to address issues in the department, college, university, and the national levels. In the 2010 Engineering Organization Recognition Rites, UP IE Club was highlighted as the organization with the most projects undertaken. Most importantly, these same members excel in their academics, and are often found leading their colleagues – be it in research, in critical thinking, or in values.
Truly, after 42 years of productive and meaningful existence, UP IE Club maintains its status as the premiere organization of the College of Engineering and continues its traditions of integrity, compassion, and above all, excellence.
