Time is of the Essence
I have to admit, I am not the ideal EEE student the department can boast off in terms of scholastic achievements. I had been surviving myself throughout my EEE life. Being an average/normal student having high hopes in EEE, I know there is something
wrong within the system.
First of all, the system is not student-friendly. Many hopes had been crashed, many talents had been thrashed. The department had been very proud housing the "cream of the crop" aka whiz kids, but fails in developing/improving new ones. Faculty: they're bright but they can't teach well, save for some. An MS student shares his comparison between foreign professors and EEE faculty; for example, given that you had finished all requirements given to you by the foreign prof, your grade would definitely be "uno". Pero pag taga-EEE, kukupalin ka pa hangga't mahanapan ka ng mali (bug) sa project mo!
Sigh. Forgive me for bashing my own department, but I guess this is an effect of being strangled by the system for so long. The 8 units for one year really hurts and costs much of my time. Plans had already been layed out, yet I think there need to be a new one to be drafted as adjustment for these delays.
For this semester, aside from the thesis work, at least I had enrolled myself with another 6 units of Nihonggo and the "Berkeley" class (EE298). These may be non-credit units but at least I have something to improve with myself. I don't even know whether pursuing an MS in Microelectronics would still be a viable option for the future, since there already had been problems arising with most MS students nowadays (i.e. Php1500 per unit, loss of scholarship, etc.).
God knows opportunity awaits.
