Eljhon Jaen Capili passed the 2018 Registered Electrical Engineer (EE) Licensure Examinations with the score of 92.15%, earning him the Top 2 spot.

In addition to this, Letran gained more reason to celebrate as the school also achieved a perfect passing rate in the said exam.

Joining Capili as new Registered Electrical Engineers are Symon Mykell Andres, John Royce Jamilla, Reden Loyola, Neil Francine Molina, and Jon Arvin Peguit.

The recent achievement is a monumental follow up to the 100% passing rate of the pioneer batch of Electrical Engineering last year.

“[These] show that even [though] Letran’s engineering program is one of the youngest in the country, it is full of potential,” remarked Capili. “We may not be at par with the country’s premier engineering schools in terms of ‘quantity’ but I see that we are at par with them in terms of ‘quality’.”

Engr. Carlito Gutierrez, the College of Engineering and Information Technology dean, echoed the same sentiment.

“Even though the College just started in 2012, we were able to produce quality graduates,” he said. “It validates [Letran’s] quality Engineering program.”

Just like the previous batch of EE passers, Capili said that prayer was a big part of his preparations for the exam. “I [told] myself that I would have to give my best in the exam; I [prayed] just for me to pass, for the entire batch to pass, and that may His will be done.”

Capili said that, being an academic scholar before, it was his desire to give back to Letran, though he didn’t expect for it to be this soon.

“I feel very happy that this gives honor to my Alma Mater, that I have proven that Letran’s 400-year old tradition of excellence endures,” he said.
