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 industrial 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 be called a certified or professional Industrial Engineer in the Philippines, a graduate of BS in Industrial Engineering needs to pass the Industrial Engineering Certification Exams. The examinations are conducted by the Industrial Engineering Certification Board (IECB) under the direct supervision of the Philippine Institute of Industrial Engineers (PIIE). 


To become a Licensed Industrial Engineer in the Philippines, a graduate of Industrial Engineering needs to pass the  Industrial Engineering Certification Exams. The examinations are conducted by the Industrial Engineering Certification Board (IECB) under the direct supervision of the Philippine Institute of Industrial Engineers (PIIE). 


These certifications are voluntary processes that validate an individual's qualifications in the field of industrial engineering professional practice but are not considered board examinations. However, a graduate who has no certification can still practice as an industrial engineer. Taking these certifications would make an Industrial Engineer more credible and reputable in the industry.

◈ Studied B.S. Industrial Engineering
◈ At University of the Philippines Los Banos
◈ Graduated 2010

list bulletWhy did I choose Industrial Engineering: I wanted an engineering degree and this seemed ok.

list bulletAbout my college education: It was ok. But was hoping for more experienced teachers. The instructors were still young and seems that they only teach what they have also learned from books and haven't really been speaking from experience yet. It is understandable since it is difficult to find experienced and qualified professors especially if those most qualified would rather work for multinational companies than teach and serve the country the way UP professors promised and intends on keeping to do.

list bulletMy current job: I am now currently taking up masters in industrial engineering. I was hoping that a second try wouldn't hurt. But I'm still thinking of delving into another branch of engineering.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: I guess so. Though a bit outdated.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: In just 2 weeks. Not the best of companies though. But it gave me the experience and perspective I sorely needed.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Industrial Engineering: Employment opportunities - sure lots of them. But you have to be the best in terms of leadership qualities, like being an officer or leader of an organization to back you up to various multinational great paying companies. Salary is high if your a leader and perhaps with latin honors.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: I advice that they go out first. Perhaps a summer job while they are still in the university to enrich their knowledge about the course they will enter in. This gives them a better picture of what they would be encountering after they graduate. In my case, I found out that my inclinations tend to be a bit different from what I have undertook in college and chosen profession. Go out into the world younger people. I thought that if I do my best in any profession I will be able to do well. It seems that motivation plays a stronger role than pure diligence and determination can do. I am now thinking of finding another course, perhaps still in engineering and take it up as a masters course. It seems it is still not too late for me.
