SYNERGY: Electrical and Electronics Engineering Summit is a four-day academic convention for students undertaking EEE degree programs (Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Communications Engineering, Computer Engineering) and other degree programs related to it.
It aims to be a venue for students to learn and share thoughts and ideas regarding the relevance of EEE in the everyday lives of the Filipino people. It also targets to connect with other people studying the same degree programs in different colleges and universities. With these, SYNERGY hopes to inspire students into thinking and building technological and engineering innovations which can further the progress of the country.
The first SYNERGY: Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) summit was launched. It focused on the alternative energy sources and its potential to help solve electricity and other related problems in the country.
The second year for SYNERGY introduced concepts on how innovators in the field of EEE could promote and sustain nation-building. This further delves into the idea of how the Philippines’ progress is intricately linked with its technological advances.
The third year of SYNERGY focused on seeking career paths in the academe, the government, and the industry. It aimed to provide the students a knowledge and understanding of the different fields of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and its various applications.
The fourth year of SYNERGY aimed to help students envision their lives after college, how they can help their countrymen through their chosen careers, and how they could help the country become a global hotspot of technological innovation.
The fifth year of SYNERGY continued to encourage students in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering to explore various career paths related to their chosen fields to help them contribute to building and developing nations and to promote and develop technological innovations for safer and smarter communities.

Techno Talk is composed of various talks that discuss different aspects in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering that can be seen in our everyday lives and technologies that are emerging to change our daily life in the years to come. Topics for the Techno Talk will focus on communication, transportation, and augmented reality. These talks and discussions aim to inspire and empower the participants and delegates to create and develop technology for future generations.
Ingenious Ideas encourages students to think outside the box in order to solve problems relevant to today’s society. Participants will be asked to submit their ideas before the event proper. There will be a panel that will review their initial ideas and return it them with comments and suggestions. Come the day of the event proper, the participants will be asked to formally present their ideas. Ingenious ideas aims to bring out the participants’ creativity and make them more equipped to be future masters of innovation.
Revolutionary Robotics is a robotics competition with the use of autonomous robots. It comprises of three rounds, with an increasing difficulty throughout the event, which will be a test of a robot’s strength, agility and intelligence. It aims to give participants an avenue to practice their innovative minds in the field of robotics, and to showcase the many ways by which robots can be useful in everyday life.
In Dynamic Discourse, participants are given a chance visit several EEE companies and see how the work lifestyle is in these companies. Dynamic Discourse aims to immerse the participants more in the field of Electrical and Electronics Engineering by giving them a first-hand experience of how these companies apply what they have learned in their classrooms and laboratories.
