University of Batangas and the College of Engineering continues its tradition of
excellence with 83 newly registered mechanical engineers in the February 2019
Mechanical Engineer Licensure Examination. University of Batangas emerged again at
the top as three of its alumni bagged the most-sought -after top spots.
Engr. Jayson D. Perez scored 92.40% sealing him in the first place. Engr. Jerwin F.
Mendoza scored 90.30% and garnered the sixth place. Both alumni graduated cum
laude in the said university. In addition, Engr. Patrick Joshua D. Rivera scored 90.25%
and ranked seventh in the licensure examination.
Engr. Perez ever since had been very eager to give back to his parents, “Pinagsikapan
ko na matupad ang pangarap ng magulang ko na magtapos at siyempre nagnais na
yung pangarap nila ay mahigitan ko pa, hindi lang basta magtapos, gusto ko din
makapaguwi ng medalya at honor sa pamilya”, shared Engr. Perez.
Perez expressed his deepest gratitude to the university for honing their skills and
encouraged future board takers and students. “Sana ang aking nakamtan na biyaya at
tagumpay ay gawin nilang inspirasyon at determinasyon na makapagtapos sila para
maipagmalaki din sila ng kanilang mga magulang”,Perez shared to the undergraduates.
Mendoza on the other hand said that his hardships as a student athlete paid off. It was
never easy to balance two responsibilities. But playing chess taught him the value of
decision making which was also very much important when he took the examination.
He learned to think first of which is really the best, the best move or the best choice that will
make him win, and with what he had reached, he is definitely a winner.
While, Rivera did not expect to land in the Top 7 in the examinations and even doubted
himself, “Through the guidance of the Almighty Father and tiwala sa foundation na
binigay ng UB, nalagpasan ko ang self-doubt to pass the examination”, Rivera said.
The topnotchers together with the other passers were given recognition during the flag
ceremony last March 4, 2019. The topnotchers also received monetary incentives from
University of Batangas.
Truly, this achievement is remarkable thereby making University of Batangas as the top
three performing school not only in the region but in the whole country.
