The UPLB Chemical Engineering Quiz Team triumphed as champions in the 39th Inter-University (Inter-U) Chemical Engineering Quiz Show held in University of the Philippines last November 6, 2016. The said competition was participated by 18 teams from 11 universities nationwide.

 Registration started at nine in the morning and the same time, contestants and coaches were briefed by the Inter-U committee regarding the rules and mechanics of the contest. There were three phases: the Elimination, Wildcard and Final Phases in which each phase were consisted of three rounds: Easy, Average and Difficult Rounds. Questions were acquired from different fields namely Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Engineering Science, General Knowledge and of course, Chemical Engineering. The quiz show proper started at around 10:15 AM. Teams and judges were first introduced, and immediately after that, the Elimination Phase began.

The core team is composed of three members and a substitute. Substitution of any member is allowed at the end of any round of every phase. The top five teams that garnered the highest number of points in the Elimination Phase automatically proceeded to the Final Round. Unfortunately, UPLB 1 and 2 did not make to the cut but luckily managed to qualify for the Wildcard Phase. The number of teams were reduced from 18 to nine. The tension broke as the organizers offered lunch. By 1:30 PM, the quiz show resumed with ice breakers, followed by the Wildcard Phase, which is shorter than the earlier phase. Unexpectedly, UPLB 1 made it to the Final Phase, being the highest scorer in the said phase. The most-awaited phase, the Final Phase, happened right after the Wildcard Phase. Seven teams battled to be hailed as winners. Due to weekly reviews with the spirit of determination and compassion to win, UPLB Team was declared as champions.

UPLB Team 1 is led by their team leader, Myrckho Miguell Mendoza, together with Ruen Rey Sazon, Marjorie Ocampo, and Gabriel Narce. UPLB Team 2 has Romeo Lacro III, Princess Jenine Nido, and Lemuel Samson as members, and Christian Joshua Dio as the team leader. Meanwhile, the team from De La Salle University, Manila ended up being in 2nd place, and the team from University of Santo Tomas, in 3rd place.

The Inter-U Chemical Engineering Quiz show is one of the events in the Students' National Chemical Engineering Conference (sNCEC) 2016 organized by UP Chemical Engineering Society, Inc. commonly known as UP KEM. Other events in sNCEC are Research Grant (ReGrant), SCENE, and National Chemical Engineering Symposium (NaChES) which has two parts; Case Study Competition, and workshops where some UPLB Chemical Engineering students also participated.
