Reviews of BS in Applied Mathematics graduates:

J. C.
◈ Studied BS Applied Mathematics
◈ At University of the Philippines Los Banos
◈ Graduated 2008

list bulletWhy did I choose Applied Mathematics: I am a Math lover ever since I was a kid. I've been always good with numbers!

list bulletAbout my college education: I have a passion for logical thinking. With BS AMath, there are a lot of logical thinking and problem solving involved. I can describe it as challenging and very interesting. Aside from being good with numbers, a student needs to be keen on details, patient and hard working in order to succeed, perhaps not only in AMath, but in any degree program as well.

list bulletMy current job: I am a planning analyst in a manufacturing company. It's a supply chain job where you are to plan the schedule of raw materials purchase based on the actual consumption in the production area.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: The hardcore math theories, definitely a NO. What I am able to use though is the analytical skills I have fully developed back in college. As well as the professionalism and value for work that was ingrained to me in my stay as a UP student.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: 3 months

list bulletDo I recommend studying Applied Mathematics: It is very exciting course. But if you are not good with numbers to begin with, I do not suggest that you take the course.
But in respect to employment opportunities and salary levels, this is definitely a course I can recommend! I am very satisfied and fulfilled with my job right now. And I believe that there are a lot of satisfying jobs available for graduates like me.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: You are dealing with a lot of numbers all throughout your stay in the university. You need to have the passion to move forward and determination to finish the course. And no matter how many road blocks and detours that you may encounter along the way, just don't give up and eventually, you'll reach the pit stop! Good luck! :)
