The Philippines was still recuperating from the painful traces of the Marcos regime when the School of Engineering and Architecture of Holy Angel University, Angeles City gave birth to an institution that would advance the rights and welfare of the engineering populace. In June of 1986, student leaders Renato David and Ronaldo Juanatas spear headed the setting of a student publication in the college. It was their noble task to carry out their endeavor as they deemed a student publication as the only medium where the students please and concerns would be best heard-out. The two leaders went through a very tiring and deciding job on how they will be able to form a publication with a firm foundation of principles and vehement idealism and patriotism.
The members contemplated on what particular word was the most commonly used in engineering and likewise depicted a positive connotation when uttered. The term SOLUTION became popular after a series of consultations with both the students and the faculty. Hence, it was adapted and became the banner of the School of Engineering and Architecture Official Student Publication.
Since then, The Solution has been serving as a gateway for the engineering students in promoting their democratic rights. It also became a source of information especially with regards to the undertaking of the college.
