The ENGblem is a competition where each block must create an emblem representing them. Each block had the opportunity to showcase the ENGblem that they designed. This year, the organizers took it up a notch in challenging the blocks by providing old cheesecloth as their canvas.

For the final day of SoE Fest 2022, the SoE Community took some time to express their gratitude for all the blessings that the School of Engineering received this year by attending a Thanksgiving Mass at St. Alphonsus Mary de Liguori Parish.

The mass was then followed by an all-out live performance by the blocks during the ENGkwentro at the MPH1. It was truly a sight to see and a wonderous presentation as they danced to some ‘80s beats.
ECE211/ECE221 impressed audiences and judges with their performance as they were recognized as ENGkwentro 2022 Champions. CPE221-B and CPE211 also didn’t disappoint as they went home as the First and Second Runners Up, respectively.
