About UP CAPES

A service organization by the students and for the students.

The UP Career Assistance Program for Engineering Students is a service organization by the students and for the students. Working hand-in-hand with the College of Engineering, it designs and hosts events that produce competent, self-assured graduates who shape their respective fields. Holding service and excellence above all, our passionate members strive to create valuable new opportunities that are accessible and attainable by every engineering student. Through our yearly Career Events Series and the Engineering Jobfair, we equip students with vital skills, connections, and exposure needed to qualify for their dream jobs.

Our beneficiaries include the Engineering Student Council, the Engineering Admin, and the UP CAPES Grantees.
