J. A.
◈ Studied BS in Mechanical Engineering
◈ At University of Rizal System - Tanay Campus
◈ Graduated 1996

list bulletAbout my college education: At first I didn't like it because this was not my personal choice. Only my parents wanted me to take this course but as time passed by. I slowly loved this course because I found it enjoyable because it is more on designing and constructing of physics and material science. We studied how the machine operates with it's own tool. Basically it is more on designing and constructing machines.

list bulletMy current job: Engineer

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: About a year.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Mechanical Engineering: I would recommend if they are really interested with my course.
