Insights from Student Interns…
My three years experienced in BSIT and two years in DIT Major in Programming, I can really say that having good logical and critical thinking is needed when studying IT, because most problems and projects you will face won’t have the answer laid out for you; you need to be the one to think, formulate and create the answer.
Studying BSIT at JoBS Academy and DIT at HCIT Academy made me took interest in a course that wasn’t my choice in the first place. I really liked it when I faced coding challenges and problems, and when the teacher made us create programs. It was then that I was getting so interested in learning more about coding because I get the freedom to solve problems in my own process, the freedom to create things out of what I learned, and the experience of learning a new language. Every semester they demand an output from the students, which I honestly a very good idea because it really challenges the students’ minds and push their knowledge to the limits. Being an IT student is not easy at all, but if you like challenges and solving puzzles, I’m sure you’ll have the best time in learning IT world.
Ultimately, I give my thanks to God for giving me opportunities, blessings and provisions. I also thank the instructors who shared their knowledge to their students and their patience in teaching. I also thank my parents for their support and provision.
