The Association of Geologists and Geological Engineers of Mapua (AGGEM) is the sole organization in Mapua that caters to the Geological Sciences and Geological Engineering Students. It is a non-stock, non-profit organization that was established on the school year 2011-2012 and founded by Clement Fajardo with the help of its faculty adviser Dr. Karlo Queano. Even though the organization itself is quite young, there have already been some notable accomplishments in different fields notably, the first induction of the members held at La Mesa Eco Park, regular seminars on various geologic fields, interschool quiz shows, Palawan Fieldtrip and the AGGEM Summer slam.
There are regular activities that are conducted each year namely, the orientation of freshmen held every 1st quarter, AGGEM Cup, Geologic debate that is now on its 4th year would be on November. Currently, the aim of AGGEM is its rise on the ranks of organizations to be accredited through participation in inter-departmental activities such as the CEGE Cup/Night, sending peer advisers, as well as participating in inter-school activities through the help of the Philippine Association of Geology Students(PAGS) like the Geolympics which was hosted by AGGEM, which involved Mapua, Adamson and UP.
AGGEM will continue to create activities for the academic and social welfare not only for its members, but also for the public.
