UE Caloocan students of Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering and in Computer Engineering were unbeatable as they bagged the Champion, 1st Runner-up and 2nd Runner-up titles of the Revolutionary Robotics competition in the recent Synergy Electrical and Electronics Engineering Summit.

The inter-school event, hosted by the UP Engineering Radio Guild, was held on November 19 to 22, 2019, at the National College of Public Administration and Governance Assembly Hall in UP Diliman.

The event was open to students of Electrical, Electronics, and Computer Engineering or related degree programs. With “Technology at the Forefront of Sustainable Cities and Communities” as theme, this school year’s Synergy was envisioned to promote the use of technology to make cities and communities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

The summit’s Revolutionary Robotics competition took place on November 21. Participants were challenged to build their own autonomous robots that were then tested in terms of strength, speed and intelligence.

The Test of Speed saw the robots run through a marked path one at a time, with their fastest times recorded and compared to determine the winner. The Test of Intelligence saw the robots guided through a maze one at a time, with the time they finished going through the maze recorded. The Test of Strength, or Sumobot, saw two robots at a time dueling in an arena-like space, with the objective of knocking the competing robot out of the arena.

There were six UE College of Engineering-Caloocan teams that participated in the competition: four belonging to the Electronics Engineering (ECE) Department and two from the Computer Engineering (CpE) Department.

The ECE Department teams were Team Shammah (“Shammah” meaning the “Lord is there”), Team Primo (inspired by the Transformers protagonist Optimus Prime), Team Kyah (“Kyah” being a play on “kuya” or brother) and Team Bazinga (referring to a catchphrase of the TV series The Big Bang Theory). The CpE Department, for its part, was represented by Team Etneb (based on the popular slang for “bente” or twenty) and Team Thirdy (a play on a student’s hope for a grade of “tres” or 3).

The UE teams demonstrated the true meaning of excellence as three of the six teams took home overall places and became the top performing teams in the three categories of the competition.

Team Bazinga, composed of BS ECE students Chris John Emil Aguinaldo, Lorielyn Palmero, Ryan Gerome Regis, and Angelyka Tinga, garnered the 7th Place in the Test of Speed, 5th Place in the Test of Intelligence and was recognized as an excellent contender in the Test of Strength.

The achievements of the teams would not have been possible without the support and guidance of the following coaches: Engr. Mark Anthony C. Aseoche and Engr. Francis P. Gubangco of the UE Caloocan ECE Department, and Dr. Alexis John M. Rubio, Engr. Arriane D. Cabreros, and Engr. Regie C. David of the UE Caloocan CpE Department.

Kudos, Engineering Warriors!
