Adamson University, the first institution in the country to introduce the Industrial Engineering course in 1935, is proud to have five new certified industrial engineers in its roster of licensed and accomplished engineer-alumni.
The five new and certified industrial engineers are Raquel S. Arciaga, George Edrey V. Ladim, Marivic V. Padilan, Angeline Joy G. Santos, and Christopher E. Tupaz. All five posted a 100% passing rate for Adamson. Tupaz also placed third in the top ten examinees with a score of 79.71%, followed by Padilan at sixth with 77.29% and by Santos at eighth with 75.83%. Two students from University of San Carlos in Cebu clinched the first and second highest scores.
The certification exam is the first such certification to be held in the country. It came about as the result of a series of dialogue and consultations between the academe, industry practitioners and international counterparts to help industrial engineering in the country step up its professional standards. The exam was held at the Procter and Gamble Room, Melchor Hall at the University of the Philippines in Diliman last May 23, 2009.
Sixty examinees took part in the exam and 30 of them passed. The examinees were a mix of BSIE fresh graduates and those who have had less than ten years of professional experience. The certified engineers will take their oath on August 28.
