Reviews of BS in Applied Physics graduates:

A. O.
◈ Studied Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics
◈ At University of the Philippines Los Banos
◈ Graduated 2008

list bulletWhy did I choose Applied Physics: Physics is the scientific basis for technologies that continue to have a profound influence on almost all aspects of modern life. Applied Physics have a lot of contribution in modern technology thus, presenting a wide variety of job opportunities after graduation.

list bulletAbout my college education: It is very hard, but it is fun. A student will need to exert a lot of effort in order to pass his subjects. They say that it is difficult to enter UP, but the truth is, it's more difficult to leave (i.e. To graduate). But nonetheless, with perseverance and patience, nothing is unachievable.

list bulletMy current job: Electronics and Instrumentation Technician

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: The theories are applicable to my current work but what I think is more important are the values ingrained to me by my professors. Something that you cannot read from any textbook.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I was able to find a job right after graduation.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Applied Physics: Yes. There are many options for an Applied Physics graduate. If you are lucky, then you can get a high starting rate, but usually, it may take time before you have higher salary. Well, I guess that will be depending on the company. But high salary or not, I think this is a very fulfilling career!

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Study hard and never give up. The road may be bumpy, but you should not stop until you reach the finish line!
