The University of the Philippines Aggregates, Incorporated also known as UP Aggregates, Inc. or simply Aggre is an organization of civil engineering students based in the Institute of Civil Engineering of the University of the Philippines Diliman.
The UP Aggregates, came into being in July 1985, when the need for a more fulfilling student organization arose in the hearts of twenty-nine civil engineering students, an organization that would recognize their academic objectives as well as provide an outlet for meaningful extra-curricular participation. Thus, the UP Aggregates was born.
Quickly establishing itself as an active participant in numerous campus activities, the UP Aggregates has even organized a few of its own activities such as film showings, sales, seminars, and outreach programs.
An ideal academic organization should promote academic excellence among its members. Through the years, we have worked hard to reach that ideal. That hard work has born fruits for us, as many of today’s civil engineers who were once part of the UP Aggregates has been constantly reaping success in the civil engineering profession.
Although the organization prioritizes academics, the organization members do not confine themselves to round the clock studying. They regularly participate in numerous campus and civic activities that suit different members of different inclinations. The organization holds sports festivals and joins University sporting events. The organization also promotes teamwork, discipline, and leadership towards the development of oneself that leads to become social individuals.
In 2003, through the hard work of our committees, the organization has been recognized by the Securities and Exchange Commission and has become, UP Aggregates, Incorporated, now stronger and bolder.
This year marks the UP Aggregates, Inc. 27th anniversary. As the members aim to continuously accelerate the organization’s growth, whilst inspiring lives of colleagues and contemporaries, the group has lined up new activities and formulated new ideas that would help them achieve the said goals. The UP Aggregates, Inc., as an essential and integrated part of the College of Engineering and of the whole UP community, hopes to be dynamic as the time demands them to be, to continue setting the goals and realizing them for the years to come.
