International Journal of Advanced Research and PublicationsISSN: 2456-9992Tracer Study Of Graduates Of The College OfIndustrial TechnologyDr. Philip Y. Del RosarioBatangas State University – Pablo Borbon Main IICollege of Industrial Technology Batangas City, Batangas, 4200 Philippinesledriorosa@gmail.comAbstract: People live in a rapidly changing world with the diverse demands and challenges. They additionally call on universities tofacilitate the shift to cognizance-predicated economy and high-technology through efficacious linkages between research and industry toascertain that their countries have a competitive edge in the ecumenical market. This study used the descriptive method of research andsurvey questionnaire as the main data gathering instrument to trace the Batangas State University-College of Industrial Technologygraduates of the Bachelor of Industrial Technology program from 2013-2016. Based from the findings, the Bachelor of IndustrialTechnology graduates mostly were male, 20-24 years old, single and graduates of Instrumentation and Control Technology. In term ofeducational profile, the Bachelor of Industrial Technology graduates across major of specialization have no professional examination butthey are willing to pursue advance studies for professional development. In terms of employment, BIT graduates were mostly employed,end of contract was the reason for unemployment, they get their jobs for 2-5 months, they have one job after graduation, permanent instatus, locally employed in non-government organizations for less than 7 months, and most jobs were relevant to their major ofspecialization. Lastly, the proposed recommendations to further enhance the employability Bachelor of Industrial Technology focusedmainly on National Certifications, attendance to seminars and training, and meeting with advisory councils.Keywords: employment, graduates, professional development, profile, tracer study.1. IntroductionPreparing adolescent people to enter the labor market hastherefore become a critical responsibility for universities.However, the pertinence of their program and employabilityof their graduates are posing an incrementing challenge forthe universities, concretely in view of two sets of statistics:enrollment and youth unemployment rates. Since BatangasState University is the only state university located inBatangas, it plays a significant role in the upliftment ofemployment, and thus helps the government. The BatangasState University, like all other universities aspires for theeffective performance of its students. It is true to its vision ofbeing a center of higher learning committed to the promotionof wisdom, excellence, human dignity and national pride inthe Filipino. [1] However, given the wide comprehension ofemployability, perceive that the nature of a college graduateis not only an impression of the nature of the educationalmodules and its supporting academic environment. It alsoreflects the demands of the industry and also the competenceof the regulating body in shaping the characteristics of highereducation graduates. It might be excessively oversimplifiedto note that universities are encouraged, if not pressured, toproduce employable graduates. In addition, professionallevel training is constantly included inside Higher Education,and as a rule in graduate schools, since many postgraduateacademic disciplines are both vocationally, professionally,and the erotically research oriented, such as in the law,medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, and veterinary medicine. Abasic requirement for entry into these graduate-levelprograms is almost always a bachelor's degree, althoughalternative means of obtaining entry into such programmersmay be accessible at some universities. The Bachelor ofIndustrial Technology program offers students withknowledge in the manufacturing process, electronic andmechanical components and systems, quality assurance andcontrol, materials science, packaging, production andoperations management, and manufacturing and design. Eachspecialization, cumulated with a certificate and/orprofessional experience, makes one a professional in acategorical field. There are many types of technicians andmechanics, each specializing in a categorical field ofexpertise (Automotive, Electrical, Electronics, Refrigerationand Air-conditioning, Computer, Mechanical, Welding andFabrication, etc.). [2] Each of these jobs is considered aprofession, because it requires a specialized set of skills andsometimes a certificate. Modern Technology graduates arepopular abroad. Most jobs related to this program are in theskilled workers sector, which is in demand in many foreigncountries, most especially the Middle East, Canada, Australiaand Singapore. Filipinos are typically utilized in remotenations as welders, iron specialist, mechanical engineer,machine administrators and comparative jobs. Althoughmost occupations offered abroad are at section level, theseemployments normally pay higher than the midlevel andpropelled positions in the Philippines. [3] Other courses suchas Welding and Fabrication Engineering Technology,Electrical Engineering Technology, Electronics ogy,Automotive Engineering Technology and Food EngineeringTechnology comprise the eleven major courses of Bachelorof Industrial Technology. [4] Lately, CIT pursuesaccreditation in TESDA and this provides walk through to allBIT students to become competitive locally andinternationally. Up to this point, the College is as yetintending to offer such courses that keep on enhancing thelearning and aptitudes of personnel and understudies throughthe Dual Training the Philippines System (DTS) program.[4] All this ten (10) components of BIT were subjected forLevel III Accreditation last February 11 – 14, 2008 and onDecember 2018, the college is awarded with Level IV PhaseI Accreditation. In connection, doing a tracer study enablesthe college to locate alumni of academic institution, formerbeneficiary of scholarship grants and participants in order tocollect data and update information about the CIT graduates.This tracer study of Bachelor of Industrial TechnologyGraduates from 2013 to 2016 was steered to give noteworthyresponse and to relink alumni to their Alma Mater. Likewise,this endeavor will also give some notable inputs towards theVolume 3 Issue 5, May 2019www.ijarp.org23

Objectives of the StudyThe primary purpose of the study is to trace the Bachelor ofIndustrial Technology graduates of 2013-2016. Specifically,it attempts:1. To describe the profile of the respondents in terms ofsex, age, civil status, and major of specialization.2. To determine the educational profile in terms ofprofessional examination passed, advanced studies, andreasons of pursuing advance studies.3. To determine the employment, reasons not employed,number of months before getting first job, number ofjobs after graduation, nature of employment, place ofwork, nature of work, length of service, and relevance ofjob to course.4. To propose recommendation to further enhance theemployability of Bachelor of Industrial Technologygraduates.3. MethodologyThe study used the descriptive method for the 1193graduates or 79 percent of the total 1519 graduates weretraced. Survey questionnaire was used as the main datagathering instrument. The list of graduates was requestedfrom the University Registrar and gathering was done fromNovember to February 2017.Figure 2. Distribution of Graduates According to SexThe College of Industrial Technology was able to educatemale and female students with 86 and 14 percentrespectively. Thus, the technical field of education is moreenticing on the male population. [5] But the Gender andDevelopment encourages incoming students to consider thetechnical fields for their career opportunities.Age.

Number of Months before Getting First JobReasonsFigure 15. Reasons of BIT Graduates for UnemploymentMost of the reasons of BIT graduates of unemployment isend of contract with 287 of the total responsdents and theleast was pregnancy for female graduates. The issue of endof contract was very evident both in manufatcuring andservice industries and this also hampers the careerdevelopment and security of tenure of most of the workingprofessionals. [11] On the other hand, the new governmentpolicy of Endo was significant to BIT graduates for them tobe able to have continuous employment.Most of the graduates or 42 percent was able to find jobs in2-5 months after graduation. Only six (6) percent find jobs inmore than 1 year. This figures suggests the employability ofBIT graduates and how easy they can find jobs related totheir field.Number of Jobs after Graduation.

It is alsoevident that the international labor market considers hiringand employing BIT graduates. Thus, the graduates were alsoflexible in terms of place of work and were able to adopt todifferent nationalities and competencies needed in their jobs.[14]4943 4628 243420131501002410201320142015Year Graduated524035 34 3043187140241224759 54120050572020142015Year GraduatedLess than 7 months7-12 months13-18 months19-24 monthsMore than 24 monthsNone20160Government2016Figure 24. Length of Service According to Year GraduatedNon-GovernmentFigure 24. Nature of Work According to Year GraduatedFigure 27. Length of ServiceFigure 25. Nature of WorkBased on the figure above, BIT graduates were mostlyemployed in non-government institution like privateorganizations and companies with 94 percent and 6 percentonly for governemnt organization. These employment weresubstantive since their on-the-job trainings were also done inmanufacturing/ private companies. The massive need oftechnologiest and technicians in the private organizationaspaves the way for BIT graduates to look for employment innon-government orgnaization. [15] Likewise, there is highincome opportunities in private organization as compared topublic. [16]With regards to the length of service to present job, most ofthe BIT graduates were less than 7 months with 33 percent ofthe total population. On the other hand, 18 percent for nolenth of service yet, 17 percent for more than 24 months, 15percent for 7-12 months, 10 percent for 13-18 months, and 7percent for 19-24 months. The length of service BITgraduates rendered in their present job implies jobsatisfaction and expertise. [17]Relevance of Job to Course.
