May 11, 2018 – The Rizal Technological University – College of Engineering and Industrial Technology (RTU-CEIT) held their Commencement Exercises at the Tanghalang Pasigueño with the theme, “Hand in Hand, Onwards to Greatness”. DOST-NCR’s Regional Director Jose B. Patalinjug III was invited to be the commencement speaker. RD Patalinjug said, “The definition of greatness lies in one’s own story. It is not always about wealth, success or power. It is about being vast, limitless and open – it is making oneself part of something bigger”.
The event was extra special for RTU, after 37 years RTU produced its 2nd (1st for CEIT) Summa Cum Laude – Mr. Michael Angelo Ador Magbitang, B.S. in Civil Engineering. Garnering a GWA of 1.24, a special award was given by DOST Secretary Fortunato T. dela Peña for this achievement.
