list bulletWhy did I choose this school: I chose MIT Makati because it offers the best Information Technology course, fast paced with only 3 years span for the said course (which contains a Quarterm system that makes student study more, helping the students strive better than others since knowledge is intact due to not having vacations), and lastly, it is ABET Accredited.

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: Mapua is well known as a Cisco-partner. Since I love networking, and also since I knew networking was my calling ever since my high school days, what better choice of a school could be there aside from one who is partnered with a company that is well-known as one of the premiere when it comes to networking?

list bulletAbout Mapúa University Makati: Mapua Makati is very different from Mapua Intra. First off, it is important to note that all other non-engineering (except psychology) courses are NOT located at Intramuros - they are all at Makati. With this in mind, I will now proceed to describe my school.

The location of Mapua Makati was once the location of an RCBC branch. So, the whole campus, parking excluded, is air conditioned. It's a somewhat closed-air atmosphere. Since it was a bank, the office atmosphere is present when you come in.

The professors know well what they are supposed to teach. Seldom do you see a professor teaching a subject that is not related to his major.

The facilities are well-kept. There are numerous computer labs, which has a one-to-one ratio of person and computer. There are also places to socialize. Two of the most prominent places are the lounge and the lobby. When you tap in your id, the first area you will be in is the lobby, where you will see students just about anywhere and everywhere. Next, the lounge. Before entering the lounge, there is a large space with a whole body mirror. For reasons, this place just before entering the lounge is the favorite "tambayan" of students.

list bulletMy current job: I am currently a network engineer.
Network engineers are responsible for connecting networks. In layman's term, a network engineer is someone who helps you to access the Internet: Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, etc... We are the ones who "connect" you to others, through the use of electronic devices.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Thanks to JobStreet, and also to my CCNA-certification, it just took me 2 weeks to get a job after my graduation

◈ Studied BS in Information Technology specialized in Cisco Networking
◈ At Mapúa University Makati
◈ Graduated 2014

list bulletWhy did I choose this school: I entrusted that this school will provide me with competent education and facilities that can properly train my skills to become a proficient IT professional. I also have the notion that employers would prefer fresh graduates from top schools. Lastly, I believed that graduating from this institution helps me build my character as well.

list bulletAbout Mapúa University Makati: Not everything advertised or said is exactly reflect as how we wanted it to be. While the campus offers adequate computers, software packages, hardware equipments and learning materials, they however have problems with some professors who have inadequate skills to properly teach students about the certain course. The quarter system of the school also deprive students to fully grasp a certain topic or subject as they only have 11 weeks to finish a term.

The school's ambiance is most likely to be peaceful and calm during Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays while bustling with people during Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The school, with it's humble 3 storey structure with a centralized air conditioning system, seats and chairs in the lobby and near computer laboratories to accommodate people with computers, is very comfortable to hang out. These are the places where most people socialize besides a Starbucks cafe beside the school. Students can also socialize in the canteen and lounge where there's a TV to watch and some food stalls. Or simply, just sit in the room beside the room as the place is quite clean.

list bulletMy current job: Currently, I am employed in Accenture as part of the Infrastructure Services project.

My primary task is to install, configure, troubleshoot different network related concerns from routers, firewalls and switches up to workstation configuration and security implementation.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It took me 3 months until I finally find a job suited for me with the compensation I need. It took almost an endless time and effort to apply to different employers offering a little compensation.

list bulletAbout Mapúa University Makati: Compared to Intramuros, the Makati campus is smaller, but I can say that the overall ambiance of the campus is good. The professors and instructors are approachable and have excellent teaching techniques. You may find many strict professors, though. Well, I guess it's part of College life.

When it comes to facilities, It's thumbs up for me. The campus is fully air-conditioned and has a wi-fi environment so you may connect to the internet and do your assignments or school activities anytime and anywhere in the campus. The school has a canteen at the 3rd floor and a lounge that is located at 2nd floor for hungry souls. Just like any other schools, it also has a library and a prayer room. Their computer laboratories are equipped with good computers. The school's lobby has tables with electric outlets and chairs where you can plug your laptops and do school works or simply stay, rest and even take a nap. :)

list bulletMy current job: I just graduated a month ago, and I have just started my job hunting. :)

list bulletAbout Mapúa University Makati: It was a good school for BS Accountancy though not specialized for it, still it is a nice college.

list bulletAbout Mapúa University Makati: Ambiance:
The ambiance is not good because it is a school full of introverted nerds that will not hang out with you instead they will push you away. Do not study here in Mapua Makati it's so boring and lifeless.

Facilities:
Facilities are good and it's always cold.

Professors:
Not good professors, they don't know what are they doing. You can buy your grade by doing special favors such as spa passes, cctv cameras, and whey protein.

list bulletMy current job: Nothing, sitting at home
