  • Conduct engineering procedures professionally and ethically
  • Know the ethical and professional responsibilities as an electrical engineer
  • Understand and explain the significance of engineering solutions globally, economically, and environmentally
  • Use up to date techniques, skills, and engineering tools for electrical engineering procedures
  • Apply engineering and management principles both as a member and a leader in a team

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 electrical 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.

Reviews of BS in Electrical Engineering graduates:

R. M.
◈ Studied B.S. in Electrical engineering
◈ At Southern Leyte State University
◈ Graduated 2005

list bulletWhy did I choose Electrical Engineering: I was hungry to know more about computer programming, thermodynamics, and electrical circuits. I wanted to understand all there is in Engineering; Maybe I inherited it from my father because my father worked as an electrical engineer at our province.

list bulletAbout my college education: In this course you must be good with memorization, you need to be familiar with terms and equipment since this course teaches you how to be “Mr. / Ms. Fix it”. In Electrical engineering we were taught of many “Electrical” things; analog and digital integrated circuits, digital signal processing, power electronics, control systems, communications. Our exams were about circuit theory, computer architecture, solid-state devices, and microelectromechanical systems (MEMs). These words may sound hard for you but these terms are actually easy if you get to know it.

list bulletMy current job: Sadly saying I applied as an Electrical engineer at a fast food company but they offered me the job of a service crew since there were no vacancies. I had to take the job because we were experiencing financial crisis, eventually after working with them for a year they promoted me to work as an Operations supervisor.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Since I had a difficult time looking for a job at Leyte, I had to leave and try my luck in Davao. It took me half a month to land a job. If I hadn’t accepted the offer to work as a service crew maybe it would even take me longer than 6 months to have my first job.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Electrical Engineering: A degree in electrical engineering can allow you to pursue a job in almost any industry you can think of. After all, everyone uses electricity and electrical devices, so industries demand skilled professionals to build, repair, and improve these devices. Yes, I highly recommend it. There are many career options for aspiring electrical engineers to pick from. But I encourage you to try applying abroad because the economy is much better there.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: My advice for them would be they must always participate on activities and workshops. Always listen to who is instructing, review your notes often, and absorb all the knowledge and techniques they are teaching.
