ECCE Team won 2nd Place in Project Synergy
The School of Science and Engineering is pleased to announce that a team from the Electronics, Computer and Communications Engineering (ECCE) Department, Team ECCE, won 2nd PLACE in Project Synergy at the SYNERGY: EEE Summit 2012 held in Melchor Hall, UP Diliman on September 8, 2012
Project Synergy is a Project Proposal competition and the Title of the team's Entry was OPTIMIZED POWER DISTRIBUTION USING AN INTERACTIVE IP-BASED SMART GRID NETWORK AMONG THE UTILITY, APPLIANCES AND CONSUMERS
The team was composed of
Benjz Gerard Sevilla
Angela Carmela Aguilera
Janiz Amasoli Suyko (all 4-BS ECE majors).
Their Coach was Mr. Jose Claro Monje, Assistant Professor.
SYNERGY: EEE Summit 2012 was an event organized by UP ERG to gather EEE students from various colleges and universities to engage in a 3-day activity where they can learn, compete and realize the importance and relevance of Electrical and Electronics Engineering in the country. It aimed to bring to reality the theories and numerous possibilities being taught to the students within the halls of the academe.
Project Synergy is the main event of the 3-day endeavor. This event involved MERALCO, the sponsoring company, which presented a problem that needed to be solved by EEE teams in a given amount of time. The goal was to tap the creativity and innovativeness of EEE students in addressing a need that requires their expertise and come up with a project that would be helpful to our society. The projects were evaluated based on the attractiveness of the business model combined with the technological aspects and economic benefits of the proposed project. Students worked on their ideas and presented their proposal on the culminating day.
Team ECCE also won 2nd PLACE in the Maxim Integrated Quiz Bee. The Team members were Louie Koa, Runer Shiloh Salonga and Janiz Amasoli Suyko(all 4-BS ECE majors) Congratulations to Team ECCE!

Since the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement between the Ateneo de Manila University and Chung Yuan Christian University (CYCU) in ChungLi?
, Taiwan 6 years ago, senior students at the Department of Electronics, Computer and Communications Engineering have attended summer internship at various research laboratories in CYCU. This activity provides students the opportunity to experience student life in a foreign university, start collaborative research projects with esteemed professors and graduate students and study the Taiwan culture as well. An exchange program with Chung Chou University of Technology (CCUT) in Yuanlin, Taiwan also commenced this year.
This summer, 11 students participated (7 in CYCU and 4 in CCUT) in the 6-week summer internship held on April 11 – May 23, 2011. To date, a total of 45 students have benefited from this program. The partnership with the Taiwan universities and the continuing success of this summer internship program is through the efforts of Dr. Rosula S.J. Reyes, Associate Professor at the Department of ECCE.

The School of Science and Engineering (SOSE) received a Systems Design and Training Laboratory from National Instruments, global leader in providing test, measurement, and embedded systems for engineers and scientists. The laboratory, located at CTC 315 at the Ateneo Loyola Heights campus, was unveiled during the official opening ceremony on April 29, 2011. The laboratory houses 10 sets of hardware for teaching and learning LabVIEW?
Basic 1 and Basic 2 courses, as well as 10 sets of tables and chairs.
The donation, totaling US$ 45,000, also includes training and certification for three Ateneo instructors in LabVIEW?
core courses, Data Acquisition core courses, LabVIEW?
Associate Developer Certification, and LabVIEW?
In SOSE Associate Dean Dr. Evangeline Bautista’s welcome remarks, she noted how the donation will advance Ateneo’s “leadership in creative and innovative research work.” It will also help science and engineering faculty teach and train students in circuits, measurements, controls, telecommunications, microcontrollers and embedded design.
Pete Zogas, Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing at National Instruments, said that he “hopes a lot of people will benefit from the partnership between Ateneo and NI.” He also talked about Planet NI, the company’s outreach program. Strategically focusing on academic institutions in developing countries, Planet NI seeks to empower engineers in developing countries and aims to make technology accessible and affordable to these countries. To date, Planet NI, has launched 12 programs and initiatives around the world in areas such as clean water, solar panels, wind energy and wave energy since its inception two years ago.
Planet NI’s partnership with the Ateneo de Manila University is its first outreach program with a Philippine academic institution. According to Chandran Nair, Managing Director of National Instruments ASEAN, NI chose to partner with Ateneo because the university carries vision and values that align with NI. Moreover, he also cited NI and Ateneo’s long history of working together, and praised the university for its willingness to put in resources to train engineers. “We wanted to make sure that we work with a university which understands our technology,” Nair said.
Dr. John Paul Vergara, Vice President for the Loyola Schools, accepted the donation. “Here at the Ateneo we place much importance on experiential learning for our students and on finding ways to apply research to real world problems and situations. With the opening of the Systems Design and Training Laboratory, the School of Science and Engineering’s capability to meet these two needs is greatly increased,” he said.
