5 from Cebu schools top criminology, mechanical engineering board exams

09/17/10 - CEBU, Philippines – Five graduates from two private universities and a government college in Cebu City topped the recent licensure examinations for criminology and mechanical engineer-ing.

Two of the topnotchers are from the University of Cebu, two others from the CIT University, and the other from the Technological University of the Philippines-Visayas, formerly the Cebu State College of Science and Technology.

The four Cebuano topnotchers in the Mechanical Engineering licensure examination are Alvin Alcorcon of the UC (3rd place), Ariel ParreƱo of Technological Univer-sity of the Philippines (6th place), and Christian Nick Marasigan (8th place) and Rannie Banzon (10th place), both of CIT University.

The Professional Regulations Commission officials said there were 2,387 examinees for the Mechanical Engineering licensure examination and only 1,594 of them passed.

Deniebell Borbon, 20, of Barangay Pit-os, Cebu City, who graduated in Criminology at the UC-Banilad campus, is the ninth placer in the recent Criminologist licen-sure examination conducted in Cebu City last month.

Borbon is the only Cebuano topnotcher from among the 5,880 examinees who passed the Criminologist licensure examination. There were 16,644 examinees who took the test.

UC President Augusto Go said he will give a P100,000 cash reward to Alcorcon and P65,000 to Borbon for giving much pride to the university.

In 2002, UC also produced a first placer in the Criminologist licensure examination in the person of Jay Torredes, who is presently the dean of the university's Crimi-nology Department.

Walberto Mandin, the dean of the Criminology Department of UC-Banilad, said he will make a request to the Police Regional Office-7 officials to hire Borbon as a po-lice officer.

But if Borbon will decide to pursue her studies to be a lawyer, the University of Cebu has offered her a full free tuition, including the expenses for her books.

Borbon said she wants to work in order to help her father who is a taxi driver.

"Nagpasalamat g'yud kaayo ko sa Ginoo. Wala gani g'yud ko magdahum nga makapasar kay lisod g'yud kaayo ang examination," said Borbon, although she gradu-ated magna cum laude of her class last March. -(FREEMAN)
