BS Mechanical Engineering graduate has been training at Komatsu Ltd., Manufacturing Company in Dasmariñas, Cavite, Philippines  since November 5, 2019, following his acceptance to the Global Engineering Training Program.

Inspired by Komatsu’s orientation at CTU Main campus during his 5th year, Engr. Mark Vincent Mamigo quipped in an online interview with UICP that he tried his luck to land a spot and eventually got it.

“It was at that moment when I was able to gain interest in applying for the company,” said Mamigo who received his bachelor’s degree in May of   2019.

Not surprisingly, he was selected as one of the 12 “global engineers” to complete 6 years of training in one of Japan’s leading manufacturing firms.

The service training comes with a comfortable board and lodging, monthly stipend, weekly allowance, and an opportunity to be one of Komatsu’s full-fledged “global service engineers”, being his main goal.

“After the training, I plan to continue working in Komatsu as “global service engineer” for me to gain experience and knowledge in my field of work that I can impart to my fellow mechanical engineers.”

As of late, Mamigo is happily adapting to his new responsibility—developing prior knowledge, improving skills, prioritizing safety as a service mechanical engineer.

“The training has given me wonderful experience of supplementing things that I learned in school and allowed me to develop skills related to fieldwork.”

On November 5, 2019, university representatives from across the Philippines gathered at the Construction Manpower Development Center (CMDC) in Cavite to celebrate the 12th Batch Entrance Ceremony graced by the Komatsu Ltd. president himself.
