Adamson University-Association of Civil Engineering Students (ADU-ACES)


We envision the Adamson University - Association of Civil Engineering Students to be:

A dynamic organization aimed at promoting academic excellence and socio-civic participation through course-linked activities that would foster solidarity and cooperative friendships inside and outside the particular organization.


Thus, we, the Adamson University - Association of Civil Engineering Students commit ourselves to:

1. Help our college in providing assistance to our college-endorsed activities

2. Support and inspire our fellow civil engineering students in cultivating our God-given talents and abilities through active participation in the association's up-coming events and gatherings inside and outside the University.


Adamson University's Association of Civil Engineering Students (AdU-ACES) is a distinguished organization founded in 1975. With over a thousand members as of the current academic year, it stands as one of the leading recognized student organizations within the institution. AdU-ACES is committed to promoting excellence through various activities designed to unlock the full potential of its engineers and nurture visionary leaders for the future. 

During a period when the Civil Engineering Department faced significant challenges, particularly in the performance of students in the Civil Engineering Licensure Exam, two faculty members conceived the idea of establishing an organization to support CE students struggling with their studies. On June 20, 1975, Engr. Dunca and Engr. Danilo David founded the Association of Civil Engineering Students (ACES). 

Initially situated in the St. Therese building, the organization, dedicated to assisting young individuals in the field of Civil Engineering was officially launched with an initial membership of 120. Within a year, the membership swelled to 500, prompting a relocation to the more spacious Ozanam Building in 1984. 

After two decades of persistent efforts, ACES flourished, producing numerous board passers who have excelled as professionals. In the late eighties, the organization celebrated a milestone as it proudly produced the first woman to top the Civil Engineering Licensure Exams. Consequently, the organization underwent a formal name change to Adamson University - Association of Civil Engineering Students, or AdU-ACES. 

As the largest Recognized Student Organization (RSO) at Adamson University, AdU-ACES champions academic excellence and socio-civic participation. Through program-related projects, events, and activities, the organization aims to develop the skills and talents of Civil Engineering students. 

The vision of AdU-ACES advocates harnessing the abilities of its officers while nurturing the capacity and talents of every civil engineering student through diverse programs and activities. The organization is dedicated to surpassing its mission and vision by consistently providing valuable events and activities to our members. 

As of 2022, AdU-ACES boasts more than a thousand active members as it continues to produce outstanding civil engineering students and professionals who uphold academic excellence, contribute to communal growth, and foster social responsibility by serving the Civil Engineering Department, College, the University, and the nation.
