Abstract

A descriptive research was conducted to trace the whereabouts of the graduates of Bachelor of Science in Mathematics of the College of Science, University of Eastern Philippines. The study determined the employability of the graduates from the first batch of 2001 up to 2015. It determined the graduates who are employed whether related or not to their course; what type of jobs they have; what kind of skills they learned; and how much they earned from their jobs. Majority of the respondents are gainfully employed. Most of them are on contractual basis and are working in the Philippines. From the 110 graduates, 91 are employed while no data were gathered for the 19 graduates. Majority are professionals working as teachers in the secondary and tertiary level. Problem solving skills is most useful in their personal and professional growth. The teacher-student relationship is most rated that contributes to the degree they finished at the College of Science.
