The Phi Beta Epsilon (Wikipedia) is a Professional Fraternity for Engineers currently exclusive for the students in the College of Engineering in Iloilo City, Philippines - Colleges and Universities. It was founded on September 28, 1947, as a local fraternity at the Central Philippines College now Central Philippines University, and started to branch out a chapter in 1950 at Iloilo City College and up to now.
Its purpose is to bind the top and talented engineering students from different engineering schools in Iloilo City together so that they may work shoulder to shoulder for a common good and noble end. The fraternity is dedicated to the ideals of scholarship, leadership development, service, and fellowship. All members are men who are pursuing studies in any field of engineering or applied science.
The fraternity currently has several alumni member organizations, based in the Philippines and various countries around the world. A global network of Betans ready to support the Resident Members in all chapters in particular and the fellowship in general.
“Men if left to wander on the fields may stumble upon the truth and pick the wildflowers of knowledge but if their efforts are controlled and directed they may reap a more bountiful harvest with which they can build a beautiful garden of understanding wherein the minds of men can find a serene delight.”
To help engineer a better future for aspiring and deserving individuals and entities.
To become the model of excellence for the “Fellowship of Brother Engineers” worldwide.
We have dreamt to make this fraternity a vivid symbol of real brotherhood of engineers.
