Program Outcome

Graduates of Chemical Engineering are expected to be able to:

  • Solve complex engineering problems using the application of mathematics and science knowledge
  • Conduct engineering procedures professionally and ethically
  • Understand and explain the significance of engineering solutions globally, economically, and environmentally
  • Use up to date techniques, skills, and engineering tools for agricultural engineering procedure
  • Apply engineering and management principles both as a member and a leader in a team
  • Design, execute and enhance integrated systems including people, materials, information, equipment, and energy
  • Understand at least one specialized field of chemical engineering

On-The-Job Training/Internship

During the fourth year of the program, students are required to attend an On the Job Training (OJT) in a company, organization, or agency that specializes in chemical engineering practices and procedures. 

Students are given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in an actual work setting. Usually, universities require them to submit a written report on their tasks, learning experiences, and hours rendered. Their work performance will also be evaluated by their immediate managers and will be submitted to their respective OJT coordinator. The number of hours required may differ in each university.

Board Exam

To become a Registered Chemical Engineer in the Philippines, a graduate of BS in Chemical Engineering needs to pass the Chemical Engineering Licensure Examination. The examination is conducted by the Board of Chemical Engineering under the supervision of the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC).

Career Opportunities

Graduates of Chemical Engineering may pursue a career path in various development and agricultural companies or government agencies that needs specialized Chemical Engineering services. They may apply for roles such as a chemical engineer, manufacturing engineer, plant process engineer, and quality control engineer, process safety engineer, or even a chemical engineering professor.

list bulletAbout my college education: Chemical Engineering is one of the most difficult and challenging fields of engineering courses as most students would say and I am one of those who were able to experience what it would be like being a chemical engineering student. I spent almost five years at the University in order to fulfill my dream to become a chemical engineer. Years have passed but I could still vividly remember all the memories I have with my alma mater.

My student life in the university was never easy in fact I have spent restless nights thinking, analyzing and finding solutions to every mathematical problem given to us. There were subjects I find easy but there were those I really find difficult. But because I'm interested and determined to finish my course, I never gave up. Every day was a challenge for me. A battle I need to combat and my main goal was to win. I studied hard every single day. I sacrificed a lot. I forget about parties, going to the malls during free hours and even going out with friends. I made use of my time spending most of it at the library opening pages of books, taking down notes, reviewing problem calculations, understanding different theories and concepts. Books were my friends and my pen and handbook were my weapons.

list bulletMy current job: Currently, I am working as a quality control staff in one of the toll manufacturers here in the province of Cebu.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: I have learned a lot as a student but I have to admit not all are applicable at work. Maybe it depends upon the nature of your job. In my case, being a Quality Control Staff, most of my tasks pertains to product inspections and customer complaint investigations where I seldom use principles and theories I learned at school but merely uses my own personal judgment based on actual results. I guess learning is a continuous process and it does not end when we receive our diplomas. We must continue to search for knowledge in every tasks and activities we have daily.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I landed this job soon after I took the board exam in Nov 2003. I did not return to the province right away but instead took the chance to apply for a job. Luckily I was hired and now I am on my 7th year here in this company.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Chemical Engineering: For people who likes numbers and critical problem solving I guess chemical engineering is a good choice. For those who just want to have a taste of it, forget it you will just waste your time. This course is only for those who have the dedication and interest because this requires a lot of thinking and challenges. Don't get to it simply because of others influence or simply to look cool but because you know you have all the potentials to become one. Remember chemical engineering is a course chosen by many but passed only by the chosen few. If you think you have what it takes then go for it. Be ready for the challenge and be the next chemical engineer in the country.
