Testimonials of BS in Mechanical Engineering Graduates from the Philippines

G. M.
◈ Studied BS in Mechanical Engineering
◈ At Mapua Institute Of Technology
◈ Graduated 1993

list bulletAbout my college education: Studying BSME is very interesting. If you notice almost all aspect of everyday life involves engineering, mechanical specifically. Definetely it is a difficult course. However you don't need to be a valedictorian or an honor students from high school to take up this course. An average student (like me), can take this provided he has a guts to believe in himself first. Second you have the courage to study in the best school in engineering (Mapua), where survival is the name of the game.

During our time we have to maintained at least a weighted average of 3.5 for you to enroll in next semester. It means you only allowed to fail 3 in a 21 units enrolled.Being a mapuan means you need to study smart. If not you cannot survive a 3-4 experiment report, 15 exams a week. Its enjoyable with a twist of pain.

Skills in math is very important, must be very logical (every mapua knows chess game). In the end, what we really learned are not numbers, but perseverance and the value of hard work.

list bulletMy current job: My present job is a Technical Sales Engineer (pumps division)

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Yes, as a Technical Sales Engineer, I was able to apply what I learned in school. In pumps business the computation for specifications is very important, thus the theories I learned are very useful. A good example are computation of TDH (Total Dynamic Head), pump capacity, suction and discharge diameter.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It took me 6 moths to find a job because i had to review for a board exam.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Mechanical Engineering: There is a lot of opportunities for a BSME graduates. You can find a work in manufacturing, construction, maintenance, air conditioning and sales. Its a fulfilling and rewarding career. You may not get a very big paycheck from the start, but once you get there and learn the threads of the ropes, financial rewards will automatically flow in your pocket.

◈ Studied BS in Mechanical Engineering
◈ At University Of Sto. Tomas
◈ Graduated 1998

list bulletWhy did I choose Mechanical Engineering: I was convinced to take up Civil Engineering because my father, a licensed Electrical Engineer, told me that there is a good future and many opportunities for a Civil Engineers abroad, especially in the Middle East where he worked for so many years.

list bulletAbout my college education: The Mechanical Engineering Course filled my brain with so much about machines. The subjects were so many varied and all very technical. I like all the calculations. Even Calculus became a favorite subject. It was an exciting study and whenever I am made to make a project, I was always challenged. I passed all my subjects and got more than average grades. The 4th and 5th years are always about less than half the population of the 1st-3rd years; this means many did not continue their studies in this course.

I did my best to study each subject at a proper schedule. With this I was not burdened with cramming. I developed the discipline and right way to study. I did not allow myself to indulge in going to parties or the malls for entertainment. I tried to be my brothers and sisters who were all students and entertained ourselves at home. It was more convenient and more practical that way.

list bulletMy current job: I am now an owner of my own consulting firm. I have some consultancy with power and energy-providing companies. I handle the maintenance side of their generators.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: One practical thing I learned in my college studies is to have one’s own consulting firm in order to control my own destiny, my time, my way.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I put up my own consulting firm immediately after I passed my Board exam for Mechanical Engineers.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Mechanical Engineering: The course of Mechanical Engineering is in demand and the pay is good I recommend this course to all who do not hate numbers and who likes to tinker with machines and who wish to be employed in manufacturing or energy and power companies.

Those who like to operate and build equipment for manufacturing and for airplanes and ships, should take this course. I find this course a never-ending challenge and a sure way to make a good income.

◈ Studied BS in Mechanical Engineering
◈ At Technological University Of The Philippines
◈ Graduated 2013

list bulletWhy did I choose Mechanical Engineering: Mechanical Engineering has been my inspiration since I was a child. My passion in creating something new (particularly, a machine) may serve as number one reason why I chose to study this course. Furthermore, when I was a high school student, my teachers asked me to take an Engineering Course. Another reason why I study this course is that I somehow excel in Mathematics that's why I like to enhance this ability and hone my knowledge by taking this course. Some sub-reason taking this studying this course is that this is one of the top result I got from my National Career Assessment Exam (NCAE) when I was in third year.

list bulletAbout my college education: Difficult? Everything's difficult, What matters is how will you take the challenge.

Enjoyable? "Make your passion your profession" Yes it may be difficult but since it's your passion, you won't bother doing those things. What it take is your compassion.

Boring? The professors who teaches boring subjects. And also, spending money for your project (the sheet metals, the welding rods, the plasters etc.) It's boring spending your money but what matters is the product. The toolbox, the figurine made out of plaster etc.

Interesting? Everything, new lessons, more Mathematics (depends on the professors), new teachers, the smell of different metals. The cool picture that was taken by your classmate while making you work piece/welding the metal bars/ grinding the toolbit. :D

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: Of course, I need to take the board exam first. Then after passing the board exam, I received some e-mails and calls.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Mechanical Engineering: Yes. Mechanical Engineering is very in demand nowadays. I won't be surprised if the are very few Mechanical Engineering Graduates who doesn't have a stable work.
I assure you, MECHANICAL ENGINEERING=MONEY

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Take this course if you really want to be an engineer. This course should be love just like a fat boy likes his chocolate cake. This is not a simple course. Life is hard but Engineering is harder. However, Students can do anything/ surpass everything through Christ who strengthen them :D

◈ Studied BS in Mechanical Engineering
◈ At Batangas State University
◈ Graduated 1993

list bulletWhy did I choose Mechanical Engineering: When I was starting my 4th year HS, I asked myself what do I want with my life. Since we were very poor back then (no joke), the most logical and practical thing to do for me is find a course which has more opportunity in getting employed. So I read MB classified adds for the next 3 Sundays, and it was an engineering degree that was always being sought after, ECE then ME, then EE. There was no ECE course in R-IV before, so I chose ME, and fixed my focus on that.

list bulletAbout my college education: This is one of the most difficult technical courses out there. Logical thinking, strengths in Math/Sciences/Physics, lots and lots of common sense, patience and most of all focus are the kind of investments you will need. If you are missing one, don't take the course, you will just ruin your life.


list bulletMy current job: I am now a certified Project Management Professional (PMP). I have worked as Project Manager, Planning & Control Manager, Proposal Manager, QA/QC Manager in the last 12 years. And before that, holding engineer/supervisory positions in service, shipping and construction companies.

I did menial jobs first, and then able to worked on a small repair contractor company. From then until now, most companies in PH require license, even though actual job doesn't need it. Which I don't have and I did not even attempted to for personal reasons.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Internal Combustion Engine, Corrosion Engineering, Machine Design, Economics, Management, Power Plant Design, Mechanics/Physics.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Mechanical Engineering: This course will provide a wide array of employment opportunity, from sales, technician, engineering design, plant operations, quality assurance/control, consultancy and project management.



list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: If you will study this course, forget about extra-curricular activities (cost me another year), try to limit if no choice. If you focus and study smartly there will be no difficult subjects, practice (problem solving) always helps.

If your target is local employment or local consultancy, an engineering license is a must. Overseas, license is not that important though an advantage, and you will be measured by your total worth.

◈ Studied BS in Mechanical Engineering
◈ At De La Salle University Dasmariñas
◈ Graduated 2018

list bulletWhy did I choose Mechanical Engineering: I took Mechanical Engineering because it is one of the broadest disciplines in engineering field and the hardest.

list bulletAbout my college education: I learned very few from my professors, because most of them aren't good in teaching. The hardest subjects of course are the common ones like Thermodynamics, Machine Designs, and Power Plant. Passing the subjects is very difficult since the objectives are not properly introduced at the beginning of the classes and the professors always use summative assessment for seatworks and quizzes. A lot of times, the contents of the quizzes and exams are not being taught by the teachers. That is why many students fail the course, shifted to another course or program. When we were in freshmen, we had 40 students and only three graduated. It wasn't because the course is hard, it's because of the poor management and intimidation.

list bulletMy current job: Electro-Mechanics

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It took me 3 months to find a job.
