The FU School of Industrial Engineering & Technology edged out Ateneo de Davao University to win second place in the Sangka sa Kinaadman (SSK), an Industrial Engineering Competition held Oct. 21 to 23 in Alta Cordova, Cebu City.

The team, composed of Christian I. Bungcasan (BSIE-V), Clevie Marie M. Lapinig (BSIE-V), Jarred P. Cagape (BSIE-V), and Jenny Q. Ragudo (BSIE-IV), bested competing teams from the University of San Carlos, Ateneo de Davao University, Xavier University, Fr. Saturnino Urios University, University of Southern Mindanao, and the Notre Dame of Dadiangas University.

Engr. Lester Barriga, Team FU adviser, said all teams went through two rounds. The elimination round consisted of a written exam, an amazing race, and a case study analysis. After the first round, Team FU came out in second place.

On the second day, the FU Team’s performance in the case study analysis brought it down to the fifth spot, but they moved up to second place in the afternoon because of their performance in the amazing race.

The top three teams then entered the final round which was an actual company visit. There, they made proposals for improvement formulation, and did their final defense.

The closely-fought competition ended with University of San Carlos in first place, FU in second and Ateneo de Davao, third.

Clevie Marie Lapinig, Team FU member, said it wasn’t so much their winning the second place that made the team really happy. “It is the experience and the thought that our stay in FU molded us into better persons. The importance of teamwork, and the will to fight are the learnings taken from that event. To accomplish greater things, it is important that you believe that you can do it.”

Engr. Marlon Tanilon, dean of the FU College of Industrial Engineering, expressed elation at his team’s victory. “It shows us that a Foundationite can stand shoulder to shoulder with students from equally good schools.”
