Abstract ―​

The employment of mechanical engineers is projected to grow 5 percent from 2014 to 2024, about as fast because of the average for all occupations. Mechanical engineers can add many industries and on many varieties of projects. As a result, their rate will differ by the industries that employ them. Job prospects could also be best for people who stay informed regarding the foremost recent advances in technology. This paper determined the employability of engineering graduates for five academic years from 2010-2011, 2011-2012, 2012-2013, 2013-2014, and 2014-2015. It specifically determined this employment, employment status, nature of employment, competencies learned in college, and work-related values of the respondents; and proposed a student development program. The results showed that 100% of the Graduates of Bachelor of Science in engineering from 2011-2015 were gainfully employed locally with regular status and were holding relevant positions. The Engineering courses had contributed to the graduate’s professional advancement.
