Research Testimonies

The experiences and knowledge I gained in conducting my study entitled “Adversity Quotient among Employees of John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University-Molo, Iloilo City S.Y. 2008-2009” and “Perception of Training for Global Competitiveness among Seafarers at Municipality of Sta. Barbara” has enhanced my skills and knowledge in understanding research process and determining scientific data needed for my teaching profession and professional development.

As a Faculty member of the marine Engineering Department, JBLFMU-Molo, Iloilo City, I was given an opportunity to deepen my knowledge and expertise in research by conducting marine related-studies. I was able to conduct a study entitled “Job Satisfaction among Employee of JBLFMU for SY 2008-2009,” which enhanced my perspective and knowledge in research. I considered this as a treasure because it allows me to share my expertise, knowledge, and inputs as marine engineer in conducting research and collecting data.

My experience and training in research has broaden because of my involvement in the conduct of the three (3) studies such as (a) Sailing the Seven Seas: Three-Year Study and KSA Acquired at Maritime University, (b) Perception of Training for Global Competitiveness Among Seafarers at Municipality of Tigbauan, Iloilo, (c) Student Satisfaction of Services and Programs at JBLFMU-Molo, Iloilo City. I conducted these studies with the help of the Members of Committee of Marine Engineering Department of JBLFMU-Molo, especially Dr. Victor B. Jaleco,2/E mIguel G. Gayo, Jr., Dean of Marine Engineering Department, JBLFMU-Milo, 3/E Jose Lacuesta, Subject Area Head of Professional Area, Dr. Rolando A. Alimen.

My research involvement in the different activities of the Research Department of JBLFMU-Molo, Iloilo city enhances my awareness and perspective in dealing with and conducting research. My participation in the research seminar/forum/presentation was a very good exposure to research.

The experiences and knowledge I gained in conducting my study entitled “Attitude Towards Auxiliary Machinery 1 Subject Among Marine Engineering Students og JBLFMU-Molo,” “Perception of Training for Global Competitiveness Among Seafarers at Municipality of Sta. Barbara,” and Navigational Trip As Perceived by the Marine Engineering Students of John B. Lacson Colleges Foundation-Molo, Iloilo City has enhanced my skills and knowledge in determining scientific data regarding the different issues and matters related to my teaching as a marine engineer.

The involvement I had with the Seagrass Team had increased my awareness and perpective on environmental concerns and issues. I enjoyed working with the group especially in diving and getting the different pictures of Seagrass at Villa Igang, Guimaras, Philippines. I gained many things in my participation to this activity of the university. The exposure I obtained helped me in my career as marine officer and instructor of Mrine Engineering Department.

I am happy to be part of the SeaGrass Monitoring Team of JBLFMU-Molo, Iloilo City, which was established by Dr. Short of New Hamspire University, USA. The SeaGrass Monitoring activity last April 23-25, 2009 was conducted at Villa Igang, Puerto del Mar, Guimaras, Philippines.

I obtained knowledge on the nature of sediments, salinity of water, grazing activity, and other related factors contributing to the features and characteristics of seagrass.

The experiences, brought about by being a member of Research Committee of Marine engineering Department were very challenging and exciting. Challenging in the sense that these involve scientific procedure which lead to new discovery of knowledge. As a marine engineer conducting research, such is one of a kind because it prompted me to read and review my simple knowledge and understanding of research during my classes in my master’s degree. As a member of the committee I had to conduct research in order to test and verify my understanding and apply to the actual life.
