NAVAL, Biliran – United to a victorious NSU, Naval State University has once again brought fame to its name as it produces yet another set of Civil Engineers with a whooping average of 60%, obtaining above the national passing percentage of 48.88%.
The Professional Regulations Commission (PRC) has recently released the results of the November 2017 Civil Engineer Licensure Examination, which showed that 13 out of 22 first takers and one out of nine repeaters from NSU passed the exam.
Arvin Casas, Jay Cebuano, Remdielver Conise, Jevie Corpin, Glenn Mark Dagohoy, Deo Vincent Delis, Mark Andrew Duallo, Jay Lowie Fajardo, Mary Joycel Fuertes, Beverly Joy Labis, Sherrie Angelique Lesigues, John Rey Rivera, and Zander Mike Salas are among the first takers and now the new Civil Engineers. While Prince Jude Bomediano successfully made it in his second try.
“We are happy for them and proud for they have done their best in the exam. We hope they can use what they have learned and apply those for their future. Especially now that that they have already achieved every engineering student’s aim—to have a license,” Engr. Carmel Sigrid Docallos, a Civil Engineer Instructor of the university said in an interview.
PRC also revealed that 6,075 out of 12,447 total number of examinees passed the exam. “Basing on this result, we can conclude that the exam was hard and we were lucky enough that NSU has passed more than half. Out of 22 we have 13!” Engr. Docallos added.
“My salute to the College of Engineering! Last month you produced Registered Master Electricians (RME) 94%, now CE 60%,” Dr. Victor Cañezo, Jr., the OIC-University President exclaimed in his Facebook post.
Meanwhile, the College of Engineering (COE) is encouraging those who did not pass to retake and not to give up.
“Our life will not end based on one failure. And our dreams will not also end by failing once, twice, and even thrice. Habang may buhay, may pag-asa,” Engr. Docallos concluded.
