Top 8 Civil Engineer Board Passer from MLQU receives 1 million
June 8, 2017
The Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU) gave one (1) million cash reward to Mr. Archimedes Martinez as a token of recognition and appreciation for ranking Top 8 in the recent nationwide professional licensing exam for Civil Engineers at Success the MLQU Way event held at the Victoria Sports Tower Station 2, last June 6, 2017.
Engr. Martinez, a BS Civil Engineer graduate from Manuel L. Quezon University, ranked 8th with a rating of 92.65 percent based on results posted by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) last May 11, 2017.
Martinez is the only graduate from MLQU to make it to the top 10. Out of 6,998 examinees, only 2,514 passed the exam conducted simultaneously in 12 cities in the country.
With this achievement, Martinez has brought honor and pride to his alma mater. And in return, MLQU celebrates this victory through Success the MLQU Way event by rewarding him one (1) million pesos and a job offer from New San Jose Builders, Inc. (NSJBI).
The said event is a celebration of the success and achievements of MLQU graduates who have exhibited exemplary performance during the recent Board and Bar Examinations. Together with Mr. Martinez, Mr. Raphael Pedroso was also awarded fifty thousand pesos for having a total average score of 93.25% in the recent nationwide professional licensing exam for Civil Engineers.
This is MLQU’s way to motivate its aspiring students to be committed and to continue to strive for excellence.
During the early years of MLQU, the university is known to produce high caliber graduates, some of which are bar topnotchers who are now experts and pillars in various industries. And as the years passed, MLQU had its fair share of trials and challenges that it had to surpass to keep its notable reputation. In 2014, the New San Jose Builders Inc. acquired MLQU which ignited a vision of getting back on track and building the culture of excellence and legacy of becoming an outstanding academic institution. Since then MLQU, under the new management, has been very committed in regaining its glory.
MLQU will continue to hone individuals who are capable of producing exemplary and notable works.
MLQU is continuously beefing up its roster of faculty members and deans who are known practitioners from their respective industry. Adding to the list of MLQU notable deans are former Chief Justice Reynato Puno, Regent & Dean Emeritus College of Law; former Supreme Court Associate Justice Jose Perez, Dean School of Law; Professor Eric Soriano, Dean School of Accountancy, Business and Real Estate Management; and DPWH Undersecretary Raul Asis and former UP Dean of Architecture Danilo Silvestre, special lecturers to name a few.
Alongside the enhancement of MLQU facilities and faculty, the basic education program for kindergarten to senior high will be offered at MLQU SPACE this June.
