ALE topnotcher receives cash from ISAT U

Ar. Marianne Kaye L. Ofianga, the June 2022 Architect Licensure Examination (ALE) topnotcher received a monetary incentive of P100,000.00 from Iloilo Science and Technology University during a testimonial program held at Diversion 21 Hotel, Iloilo.

The news of an ISAT U grad placing first among 4, 766 takers of the board exam came as a ‘breakthrough’ after Dr. Muyong issued a challenge to the faculty members of the College of Engineering and Architecture “to produce topnotchers in their programs” before the end of his term.

In 2018, Ar. Armando Titular Tayoba II also made a mark after placing 10th overall in the same exam. In 2014, Ar. Charlie D. Mamon bested others and placed 7th in the ALE (Middle East). The Architecture program of the University has already produced 217 Architects which is relatively bigger compared to other schools offering the same in the region.

“Thank you, Marianne for raising the bar, and for raising the Gold and Blue banner of the University,” said Dr. Muyong. Ar. Ofianga bears the distinction as the first – ever top 1 that the university has produced in less than a decade of becoming a full- fledged university and in over a hundred years of being an educational institution.

The 30 other passers of the University who took the June 2022 ALE were also recognized during the testimonial program. The event was attended by members of the board of regents, university key officials headed by ISAT U President Dr. Raul F. Muyong, PRC VI Regional Director Dr. Romel B. Balisang and NEDA VI OIC – Regional Director Engr. Arecio A. Casing Jr..

Also in attendance were the friends and family of Ar. Ofianga, faculty and staff of the university, friends from the media, and other professional organizations .

The whole event was streamed live at the ISAT University Public Information Office Facebook page.





ISAT U welcomes incoming freshmen students

The university’s multi-purpose covered gym was jam-packed with eager freshmen during the welcome program organized by the Student Republic (SR) officers. The students were all excited and delighted to finally step inside the campus and meet the men and women governing the institution. They were organized and properly assigned to their respective colleges observing proper safety protocols mandated by the local government unit.

The whole-day activities kicked-off with a welcome message from the University’s ever-dynamic President, Dr. Raul F. Muyong, challenging the freshmen to do better in their studies and not to give up on whatever dreams they have.

“Study your lessons diligently and submit the requirements or learning materials punctually. Sustain your passion for learning and work hard to make your dreams in life come true. No matter what tomorrow will look like because of the pandemic, keep on learning and never give up.”

The University’s  Administrative Council Officers (ADCO) were also introduced during the program along with the different college deans and coordinators. A short orientation regarding the school’s services also took place towards the end of the morning activities. Designated coordinators briefly discussed the different services the students can avail as part of their privileges they have while enrolled in the University.

“I am really motivated to do well in my studies, and I am truly inspired by what Dr. Muyong said during his opening message. As a government scholar, given this amazing opportunity, I commit to do my best in order to finish my studies for me to give back to the people who helped me in this journey,” said Princess an incoming first year Architectural Drafting student.

Welcome to ISAT University, dear freshmen!









Architect Marianne

It was in July 22 when the news broke and circulated on social media that an alumna from Iloilo Science and

Technology University secured a number one spot in the Architect Licensure Examination. The entire ISAT U community were all very delighted because in the history since the establishment of the institution this glorious moment is one for the books.

Let’s get to know who she is and who are the people who journeyed with her behind the spotlight.

“She is very hard-working and determined to do things that she really wants in life since she was a child. She would always put me and her father on top of everything!” Mrs. Anne Ofianga shared during an interview.


Mr. Marlo and Mrs. Anne Ofianga are the proud parents of the top-notcher and only daughter, Marianne Kaye Ofianga or Kaye as what they fondly call her.

“I was surprised when Kaye told me that she has her own money to spend for the review. I only found out that she’s been saving her daily allowance for her review and other materials needed in preparation for the examination,” Mrs .Ofianga added.

Kaye’s father is an OFW and has been away from them for almost 6 months. When she learned that her father’s request for work extension was declained, she was very happy because she will be able to celebrate her great success with her complete family,  her greatest treasure.

Kaye plans to pursue her further education and she would want her father to quit working so that he will have more time with them.

All the best, Ar. Marianne!
