The University of Batangas showed another exemplary performance in the field of Engineering after
producing a topnotcher in the 2018 Electrical Engineering Licensure Examination as its alumnus bagged
the fourth spot.
Engr. Earvin Jonas V. Aguado scored 91.10% sealing him in the fourth place. Engr. Aguado was a known
quizzer of the department and graduated as Magna Cum Laude.
He shared that his feat was beyond what he prayed for. The second he and his family found out that he
topped the board examination, they were really very happy and can’t fathom the feeling they felt at that
time. Just like any other engineering student, he went through almost sleepless nights studying and
preparing during the review. He and his classmates were so much dedicated to all pass.
The topnotcher also shared that his inspiration was his family and most especially his grandmother who
passed away two weeks ago before the board exam.
Asked what was his key to pass the exam, he shared, “Kung gusto talaga nila pumasa, ang hubugin
talaga nila unang una ay ‘yung character, kasi sa character nakabasi ang lahat, kailangan disipinado ka
mag-aral. Yung character na ‘yun ang magiging asset mo.”
Engr. Aguado would like to extend his gratitude to the people to whom he owed his success, to the
Almighty God who has blessed him, to the University President and administration, to the Dean of the
College of Engineering, Dr. Henry I. Cabatay, to Engr. Jermhel Solis and to the whole faculty of the
College who gave their full support from the beginning.
