About my college education:
Studying BSIE in MIT is a diversified experience. It is challenging yet rewarding. It‘s difficult yet it‘s enjoyable. Two top reasons why, First because you need to be competetive. Being a province lass and new in the metro I have to sharpen my skills fast because most of the students are very smart. This made me focus on my studies and be disciplined. Second, it is difficult because it entails lot of mathematics especially during the first two years, yet it brings fulfillment knowing that you were able to solved it.
For BSIE, Math Skills is an advantage but not necessarily a major factor to succeed. Math was my least favorite subject in highschool yet with hardwork and good study habits I passed all my math subjects. Interpersonal skills and analytical skills are both important especially during major years. There are a lot of presentations, case studies, practicums and social events that requires social interactions to people not only in your universities but also in the business industry where you might want to be employed in the future. These will also expand your analytical skills as one will have to do simulationson some business scenarios.
My current job:
Currently I am working as a Logistics Manager in one of the best company in the country.
Am I using what I learned in college:
Definitely, the things I learned from college are practical. The case analysis are relevant and helpful especially during the first year of working. The skills and techniques I learne in project management and Operations research are useful at work, but I believe that it is the life skills that I developed and learned in the univsrsity that are very useful. The people skills, discipline, hardwork, dedication and integrity - the values that shaped me during my college days are relevant, useful and I can say rewarding.
How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
After graduation, it took me two months before I accept my first job.
Do I recommend studying Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering:
BSIE employment opportunities are limitless as you can be in any industry
And any job functions that requires business analysis and skills.
Its fulfilling and interesting career and the Salary is rewarding.
