Reviews of MUST Cagayan de Oro graduates


About Mindanao University Of Science And Technology:
The professors were qualified, but most were part-timers. We had most of our important classes on weekends due to them being busy during weekdays.

Overall good atmosphere. Although engineering and architecture students had the tendency to discriminate other programs, the school population had that "one big happy family" kind of vibe. People were rarely antagonistic towards each other, and if that were the case, the reason would most likely be unrelated to academics.

The school campus is very famous for turning into a wetland if the conditions are perfect. Classes were suspended if the damage caused by flooding was severe. Though this may be the case, the school has made major improvements before and after I graduated. My undergrad thesis was related to the frequent flooding, but sampling was a bit difficult because the new drainage system was surprisingly effective to a certain degree. Also, new buildings are being built and new facilities are constantly being developed.

About my college education:
It was a bit bland, to be frank. The degree program I chose was relatively easy. Most of my fellow students paid more attention to matters other than academics. It's not particularly difficult, but one has to stay focused on things that really matter.

Helpful skills would be good information gathering and retention skills, open-mindedness, willingness to work with others.

My current job:
University Instructor/Researcher
✓  Related to BS in Environmental Science and Technology


Am I using what I learned in college:
One skill I acquired during college that turned out to be important is the development and maintenance of social skills. It is highly necessary to maintain a certain degree of professionalism.
Although the specifics of my college classes have long since been lost, I found the general knowledge pretty useful as a backbone for further learning. Being able to speak in front of a large audience also turned out to be useful, more so because I tend to get nervous when it comes to public speaking.

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
3 Months

Do I recommend studying BS in Environmental Science and Technology:
Employment oppurtunities include Environment-related research, Government offices, Education, Freelance writing.

About Mindanao University Of Science And Technology:
All I can say about my school is, thank you that I graduated in a prestigious and well-known school. The professors are sometime strict and we understand that, because it is for our own good. The atmosphere is quite good, good enough to see the beauty of the school and the beauty of every student. The facilities is fair enough to call a facility, so much more to repair with.

About my college education:
Challenging because all of the subjects are more on theory, hands-on and solving. Difficult because it took me 5 years to graduate college. Enjoyable because I have many friends, even though there are sometimes misunderstanding, but still we manage to forgive and forget. Challenging because all of my Instructor are Engineer, every word they say, we all wrote it in our paper.

The required skills are interpersonal skills, analytical skills, English, Math skills, hard work, problem solving and knows how to program.

My current job:
Right now I don't have a job, I am searching online, going to job fair and going personally to the company or office.

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:

Do I recommend studying BS Electro Mechanical Technology:
It depends on the student, because nowadays it is more practical, but in terms of Employment opportunities you have a bigger chance in working on a Factory or Plant. In terms of Interesting career you have a brighter future working in a Factory. And in Salary level I would recommend it, because some Factory have a high salary and it is above minimum.
