giate mathematics quiz contest hosted by the
University of the Philippines Civil Engineering
Society - UPCES. This event aims to provide ven-

AND GET A ue to engineering students to test their mathe-

matical skills against their peers with the overall
objective of improving the quality of mathematics

CHANCE TO WIN! education especially among engineering schools.

UPCES recognizes that a solid mathematical back-
ground is vital to engineering success.
