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