Smart Communications, Inc. awarded APC as the 1st Runner-up in the Grand Finals of the 15th Smart Wireless Engineering Education Program (SWEEP) ‘Innovation and Excellence Awards’ last May 10, 2019.

This major achievement is credited to the members of APC’s Team LYNIA from the School of Engineering (SoE) and School of Computing and Information Technologies (SoCIT), namely:

1. Ferdinand Lance C. Bundoc – 4th Year BS Computer Engineering
2.  Ivan Jasper U. Evangelista – 4th Year BS IT-MI
3. Jamie Therese Y. Gahallon – 4th Year BS Computer Engineering
4. Engr. Marielet A. Guillermo – Engineering/IT Faculty Member; Mentor

Their digital innovation titled “Lynia” caught the judges’ attention because of its problem-solving ability. Lynia is a queue management system that aims to help commuters.  The discomfort caused by waiting in line at Public Utility Vehicle (PUV) terminals can now be addressed.

Earlier in 2016, APC also won as 1st runner-up in the 12th SWEEP Awards for ECG3G, a pocket-sized ECG device that can conveniently monitor a patient’s heart condition.
