Profile Aspirations of Maritime Students in one Higher Education in the Philippines

Profile image of Jake Laguador

In attaining the goals and aspirations towards success, problems might occur in a situation which is already beyond the students' control and looking for the right answer or responding to it is the only way to move on. The study aimed to determine the profile of the students, value orientation and problems of the students in terms of health, family, relationship with others, self-concerns and studies. The descriptive type of research method was used in the study. Results revealed that the maritime students have high level of terminal, instrumental, moral and social values. Maritime students belong to determination category where they try their best to have high/good grades for future employment, to become a ship captain in the future no matter how hard it is and to have their own set of objectives and direction to achieve a better future. The profile aspiration of students in terms of Hibernation is affected by the type of school they graduated and parents' educational attainment while perspiration is affected by year level, type of school and educational attainment of mother.

Realizing work values as early as college years defines the character of the future professionals on how they could get into the corporate world with proper orientation and preparation for higher goals and responsibilities. This study aims to determine the level of importance on common work values of maritime students as drawn from participation in co-curricular activities. Quantitative descriptive type of research utilized in the study with 318 randomly selected maritime students across all year levels. Results showed that maritime students have very high level of importance on work values towards social environment with reasonable superior, consider their work as important by their peers and establish rapport among fellow cadets. Active participants of co-curricular activities have significantly higher level of importance of work values towards interpersonal relationship and social environment due to their experiences with the people in the academic community and society at large. Results suggest that active participation in co-curricular activities no matter how small the project, students have to show off their talents and potential contribution to the community in order for them to have a sense of ownership of their outputs and realization of learning outcomes.

Several factors may be considered in selecting school and degree program like quality education, the people from the environment, personal choice; and accessibility of the school from students' residences. This study utilized a descriptive type of research method with Freshman Maritime students as respondents. Findings revealed that it is the personal choice of the students to enroll in maritime program in Lyceum of the Philippines University-Batangas (LPU-B) with the support primarily from their parents wherein quality education through being known as home of board topnotchers and its standards are considered big factor for their decision. They also believed that finishing maritime education would bring them in employment abroad which is basically the nature of duties and responsibilities of seafarers. High interest towards the degree program is also manifested among the maritime students. Maritime students graduated from public schools have significantly higher chance of being influenced by people in choosing the school and degree program and they also have significantly higher degree of interest towards the maritime program compared to those graduated from private schools.

This study sought to find out the profile of students and their reasons for taking maritime education at NSU. The BSMarE and BSMT students served as respondents of the study of which the former comprised 48 of them and; the latter, 52 of them constituting an aggregate number of 100 respondents. The data were gathered with the use of a questionnaire and the same were analyzed with the use of descriptive statistics such as frequency counts, percentages, means and rank to describe the findings. Results revealed that the average age of respondents was almost 20 years old, predominantly males and single with a great number of them residing in boarding houses in Naval town. Their parents were the source of their financial support for their education. The respondents reasoned out that they were persuaded to take maritime education because it is an “in demand course”, among other reasons.

This study sought to determine the factors that influence the preference of maritime students in choosing the college degree program. Descriptive type of research was utilized with 154 maritime students as respondents of the study from one private maritime institution in the Philippines. Results showed that environmental factor has higher level of influence to the decision process of the students in choosing a college degree followed by behavioral factor. Those from public SHS have significantly higher motivation to pursue the program because of their ambition and they feel more ready to face the challenges of the program than those students from private schools. those students from private senior high schools have personally chosen maritime as their college degree while those students from public senior high school have decided to choose maritime with their parents and other relatives. The findings of the study provides some insights on the career planning of the maritime students gearing towards the fulfillment of their profession. Advice of the parents is important aspect in developing the career of their children while the personal preference of the children must also be given equal value.

This study aimed to determine the level of interest of the First Year Maritime Students towards their enrolled college degree and how they differed in terms of program difficulty. Descriptive type of research was utilized in the study with 126 respondents. Result showed that they have expressed higher level of interest based on the affective domain of learning followed by psychomotor. Findings also revealed that those maritime students with low level experienced of program difficulty have expressed higher level of interest towards the maritime program in terms of cognitive domain; while those maritime students with high level of interest based on affective domain towards the maritime program are also those who experienced higher level of program difficulty. Certain level of students' interest towards maritime program describes how far they could overcome the difficulties of their chosen college degree and the findings suggest that the first year students need more social orientation and development of strong personality and resiliency about the maritime profession.

One significant component to assure quality education is formulation of policies aimed on Student' development. The academic performance of the students may also serve as an evaluation of the quality of education which the institution offers to the students. The study aimed to determine the academic performance of Freshmen Maritime students when grouped according to educational background. It further examined the differences in their performance in the technical courses, general education courses and aptitude for the service. Using percentage, mean and t-test, data are analyzed. Based on the semestral report on grades, the freshmen performed good in the professional subjects and performed very good in both general education courses and aptitude for the service. Further, there is no significant difference between academic performance of those without college background and with college background in the professional and general education courses but those with college background performed better in the aptitude for the service. The result suggests that the administration may explore the possibility of considering crediting the units earned by the students with college background. They should venture on the acquisition of more technical laboratory equipment such as simulators to increase the student's enthusiasm in the professional courses. Also, the school needs to improve its instruction and assessment on the aptitude for the service.

Students with different performance levels have varying degrees of development needs in order to discover their full potential as future leaders and professional. This study aims to determine the comparison between Maritime Students with high and low academic performance in developing their confidence in terms of social and personal needs; and leadership capabilities in terms of cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains. Descriptive type of research was utilized in the study with 150 sample population as respondents. Maritime students have higher development needs in terms of cognitive leadership capability as well as confidence for personal and social development. The low performing students have significantly higher needs in terms of developing their confidence compared to high performing students as well as in cognitive leadership capability. Allowing the maritime students to participate in the international academic activities like attending research conferences would provide them the exposure and experience to meet and communicate with various professionals from different nationalities. Giving them the chance to actively participate in the community extension activities as support to classroom instruction that will also provide a better view of the society on how they will apply the knowledge and theories they learned from the University and contribute to the welfare of the community and as part of their personal and social development.
