The UP Industrial Engineering Club (UP IE Club) was founded on December 9, 1967 by a group of pioneering students aiming to serve the different needs of the IE populace by preparing its members for future services to the nation. Since then, UP IE Club has grown to be the largest in the College of Engineering, having approximately 200 members each year. The UP IE Club members have excelled in both academic and extra-curricular endeavors. The organization continuously produces honor graduates and winners of different competitions, like the Engineering Marketing Congress (EMC) and the Philippine Emerging Start-ups Open (PESO). Since the start of EMC in 2005, entries by UP IE Club members have consistently won the over-all championship and other special awards. Members also hold significant leadership positions in other organizations, such as in 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. Moreover, UP IE Club received the Engineering Organization Excellence Award (EOEA) in 2007. It has also been awarded the title Engineering Week Over-All Champion (EWOC) twenty out of twenty-three times. The organization is also involved in socio-civic projects like orphanage visits, care for the children under DSWD and the children in the leukemia ward of the Philippine Children‟s Medical Center and the cancer ward of the National Children's Hospital. 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). Last year, UP IE Club started its Scholarship Fund as a response to the tuition fee increase (TOFI) that has deterred the number of students entering UP. The UP IE Club Scholarship Fund will provide financial assistance to those High School graduates, eager to continue their education in the University, but are hindered by the lack of finances. Today, after 41 years of productive and meaningful existence, UP IE Club maintains its status as the premiere organization of the College of Engineering and continues its tradition of excellence.
