UC Civil Engineering Graduates are "Trained & Ready" to Apply CE Software Tools Used in CE Professional Practice

May 27, 2018

What do Employers and Recruiters nowadays look for when they hire Civil Engineers? First of all, they do not look at the Applicant's School. Secondly, they do not review the Applicant's Grades or Academic Units.

Instead, Recruiters & Interviewers go direct to the point, and ask Job Applicants pointblank: "Are you Trained or Certified in CE Professional Practice Software Tool Applications?"

Once they find an Applicant who is duly trained or certified, --- Employers jump & make a Snap Decision.

"You are Hired on the Spot;" they declare.

Once the training or certification is duly verified, the new "Hiree" is granted an "Above Entry Level Pay Package."

At the UC College of Civil Engineering, UC has acquired the following Software Tools used by CE Professional Practitioners, already in use and readily-available at the UC CE Software Tools Applications Center (UC CE STA Center):

  1. ETABS* Software, Integrated Analysis & Design of Building Systems; (the full Software package).
  2. GRASP* and GEAR* Softwares for 2D Structural Analysis and Design.

The package cost is US$1,650.00.

These softwares were acquired from the Asian Center for Engineering and Computing Softwares (ACECOMS) at the Asian Institute of Technology in Bangkok, Thailand -- a leading International Center for the development of computational technology in Structural and Civil Engineering.

Before they are allowed to graduate and obtain their B.S.C.E. degree, UC CE Students undergo "Hands-On Applications Training" using these Software Tools.

This Software Applications Training Exposure program allows the UC CE Students to acquire the skills aided by these software tools to match those of licensed CE Practitioners in their professional practice.

The public is hereby cordially invited to observe the Training of UC CE Students & Faculty at the UC Software Tools Applications Center. For an appointment to be included in an observation group, please contact OIC Dean Nelson G. Notarte at Tel No. 442-3316 local 141, during office hours, from Monday to Friday
