Solid, Bigtime, Forever, Yeah!
The University of the Philippines Association of Civil Engineering Students is not just an organization. It is a legacy of nation-builders and game-changers. There is no limit, not for us. Above all of this, UP ACES is a family, a group of individuals who have fostered a home in the College of Engineering. Our solid camaraderie has allowed us to continually forge ties that will never break, and has ensured the never-ending patronage of the UP ACES Alumni Association.
As the premiere Civil Engineering organization in the University of the Philippines – Diliman, the UP ACES is a cradle of excellence and a training ground for future leaders and achievers in the Civil Engineering field. To achieve this goal, UP ACES commits itself to:
- Promoting academic excellence and professional growth of its members
- Inciting and guiding engineering students in developing their skills in leadership and human relations
- Encouraging civil engineering students to work harmoniously and in fellowship dedicated to science and technology; and
- Working for the improvement of civil engineering standards and curricula.
In all its 63 years of glory, the University of the Philippines Association of Civil Engineering Students has been, and will continue in constant pursuit of excellence in all aspects of student and professional life. UP ACES envisions itself to be regarded as the most excellent student organization in molding well-rounded, brilliant, professional engineers and leaders who excel in their fields of endeavor.
Established Bigtime Events
Within Engineering, the prestige of the UP ACES events has prompted many of the other organizations to raise the level of their own standards. With events like the National Civil Engineering Quiz, the National Civil Engineering Summit, the Company Talk, the CE Lab Tour, inCEthink, and the CE Exhibit, we have shown brilliance like no other organization.
It doesn’t even end there; UP ACES is the only organization that hosts two major night events during Engineering week, namely Jammeng’g and Indakan.
