Since we're into the thick of discussion about changing things for the better in our society, why not a professional licensure examinations for our Computer Engineering graduates? Why should you study for an engineering course for five years and not have the chance to sit for a board exam that will give you the chance to be called "Engineer" later on and have the title "Engr." prepended to your name?
I am aware of the existence of industry certifications which can be very helpful but some of these certifications need to be periodically renewed or updated or else they may be lost. It will be a sign of respect to people who spent precious time and money in serious study and training in IT and computers if they'll have the chance to get a corresponding professional title for it as well.
Hindi po ito mangyayari kung walang mag-uumpisa.
I'd say it's about time! What do you think?! Please leave your comments here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
