Posted: 2021-05-30

FEU Institute of Technology’s Electrical & Electronics Engineering (EEE) Department prides itself on another triumph as a group of brilliant ECE students bag the Best Project and Best Presenters Awards for the College of Engineering during the recently held TechnoFest 2021.

The winning team, composed of Carl Justin M. Corre, Kathleen Mae Q. Dumlao, Lyster V. Miramontes, and Jaine Kaira P. Roxas, worked under the guidance of their thesis adviser Engr. Irister M. Javel and course advisers Dr. Romano Q. Neyra and Engr. Antipas T. Teologo. They were also coached by Engr. Melodia D. Pahati and Engr. Daryl D. David.

The team decided to focus on abaca, a native product that is used to produce clothes, bags, and other accessories. This project hopes to provide more knowledge and an accurate way of grading regular hand-stripped abaca fibers.
