Yes, he must choose kung san sya magaling because Multimedia (MAS) sa mapua is very diverse. and it will be a huge plus kung may background sya sa IT because BS ang MAS sa mapua because we have programming units (which culminates in game programming). and manual art is a must (drawing, painting, etc) for MAS. not really as expert, just enough drawing skills will work. so basically, if your bro is interested in graphic design, video, animation, interactive design, manual art, photography, and gaming, i think MAS is the way to go. it is also a very enjoyable yet challenging course.
as for IT, i have a friend sa MIT makati, very ok naman daw ang IT ng mapua. they landed a job very quickly. both MAS and IT naman have top notch facilities. they are also intensive lalo na sa last years ng IT.
so there. if you want more details sa MAS, i can give you more. i just dont want to disclose other details here like tuition fees, etc.
Hope i helped!
Ganito lang iyan,
Kung titignan natin ang facilities
Mapua > UP
Pero kung sa lebel at lalim ng pwede mong matutunan sa course mo
UP > Mapua
Mas malaking tuition
Mapua > UP
Kung galing ka pang bulacan
UP > Mapua
Kung mahilig ka sa nature
UP > Mapua
Mas malaking expenses
Mapua > UP
bahala ka na magdecide
Brad, I'm a graduating student, too. I'll be studying Civil Engineering in the Mapua. Yes, I know we have like way too different fields but this is just my opinion.
The name of the school does not usually matter nowadays. Whether they are ABET accredited or the most prestigious school in the country, it is still in the students. The depth of learning matters for a lot of people. But learning does not end after you've finished your program. I mean, UP might teach you more but those things can still be learned somewhere else (maybe not in Mapua but for sure, you'll learn about those). Not to mention that you're required to update your knowledge every now and then after you graduate because your course is technology-related.
Just go where you want to go.
(Teka, parang ang labo ko)
I took CS units in UP while taking up Electrical Engineering. The facilities suck big time but the exams are very difficult. My roommates were CS undergraduate students. 90 sila originally pero 25 lang grumadweyt on time. Most of them failed along the way.
Anyway, school does not matter. Depende rin yan sa student kung willing siya magprogram ng homeworks beyond what is required.
Di bale na pala sa facilities, meron naman akong laptop, pwede na siguro to no? Naririnig ko na bad reputation na daw ang Mapua, kaya I think I eliminated that option, pero last resort pa rin ang Mapua in case di kinaya sa UP.
post from the Facebook page of Mapua Freshmen.
"With so many people saying that Mapúa is starting to lose its crown, I would like to tell you my very short and shallow story so you can consider to stop bragging about your board exam passing rate and just study so you can keep up with the Mapúans.
When my mom asked me where I would like to study, I thought of Katipunan and Taft. It was because I wanted to take either Film, Legal Management or International Studies. But when I took Drafting as an elective subject, I really enjoyed it. They were all telling me to go to Taft or to be a scholar. But I only took MSAE.
Most of my classmates passed the exams in Taft and Katipunan and were asking me why Mapúa. I really do not know what to say but it's Mapúa for me. Some say that it's like killing myself because of the quarterm and the deteriorating quality of education.
Come on, seriously, you're telling me those stuffs? Woah. Mapúa is Mapúa. It is the Institute of Engineering and Architecture. In Mapúa, you are trained to handle pressure and to use time efficiently. Quarterm does not mean that I don't have time partyin' or what. The low board passing rate does not mean that the faculty are not high caliber. You know what? Let's just see who will be better after four years."
thanks sa replies rfucom and RJDC... nakikita ko kasi parang mahilig siya sa animation and gaming... ang problema lang namin ngayon is tuition fee... could you give kahit the range lang ng tuition fee and misc and other expenses for 1 term? or for 1 year na... diba quarterm ang mapua? kahit i-PM mo nlang skin.. please...
I'm a graduate of Mapua SOIT. Here's my take.
Nung nag-aaral pa ako, i met a U.P. Diliman working as a researcher for their School of Engr.(their CS/IT is under engineering). He told me UP has poor ComSci/IT compared to other schools. That's back in early 2000. Im not sure ngayon. But that aside...
Who's the top IT school?
Ateneo / Lasalle / Mapua / U.P.
In alphabetical order. Walang #1, #2, #3 or #4. From my experience, the companies i worked for(all are Multinational/Global Companies) prioritize these 4 schools. They even go to these schools to get new hires. Personally, I think aside from the training/education, facilities and exposure students experience here, another important factor is the CULTURE, UPBRINGING and CONFIDENCE these institutions imbue in their students making them competitive in their chosen fields than other schools specially in IT/Engr/Archi/Multimedia.
Yan na ang profile nang schools na yan eh. Para sa mga kompanya, there's very little chance you'd go wrong with choosing students from these schools.
Saan mas magandang school? It's up to the students kung saang culture sa tingin nya mas babagay sya.
^ the best answer, at ngayon ay irrelevant na tong thread para sakin kasi, mechanical engineering ako naadmit. at ngayon, im really really considering mapua, kasi sa intramuros ata ang mechanical nila. :3
hi ilan ang total units ng bs comp. sci. as in mula 1st year to 4th year? ) ilang units per term?
Hmm, granted it's been a while since I've checked, but I think its ballpark number would be around 180+ units, up to 15 units per term, and 4 terms per year.
