The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is in need of 40 young civil engineers to become part of the second batch of its Cadet Engineering Program.

Cadet Engineering Program, an innovative program introduced at DPWH by Secretary Rogelio L. Singson in 2013 is part of the Department’s investment in human resources development to set new entry standards for civil engineers in the bureaucracy.

Interested graduates of Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering course aged 21 to 25 years old with above average general weighted scholastic performance and board rating in the Civil Engineering licensure examination given by the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC) have until December 30, 2014 to apply in the program. At stake are 40 permanent Engineering positions selected among the best applicants who will also hurdle the selection criteria and intensive training process.

Applicants may send their resume with photo, transcript of records, and PRC board results to hr@fpacademy.net or inquire for details at telephone numbers 696-3015 local 713 or 316.

Singson said that the Cadet Engineering Program will ensure a continuing stream of young engineers who have the right foundation in terms of knowledge, skills, and values to run the Department in the future.

Under this program, the first batch of 40 young civil engineers were trained for 26 weeks and passed the 1st Cadetship Program in partnership with First Pacific Leadership Academy.
To prepare them to become competent members of the DPWH, Cadet Engineers within the six (6) months of intensive training and internship were familiarized with the workings of the agency by immersing in the operations, develop functional and behavioral competencies through diverse learning methodologies, and instill a strong sense of personal integrity and desire to contribute to nation building through public service.
During the presentation of the 1st Batch of graduates at Malacañang Palace on March 25, 2014, President Benigno S. Aquino III is so elated that Secretary Singson was able to recruit brightest young civil engineers from all over the country.

The new breed of engineers to the organization is now given technical assignments to include project quality assurance and monitoring.
