Abstract

Background/Objectives: This study intends to explore the challenges encountered by freshmen engineering students in terms of intellectual, financial, emotional, environmental, physical, and social. Methods/Statistical analysis: The mixed method of descriptive research was employed in this study. For purpose of data collection, a locally constructed and validated twenty-two item questionnaires were distributed and interviews were conducted. The randomly selected 300 students were the respondents of the study enrolled in the second semester of the academic year 2018-2019. Findings: The general weighted average of the first semester ranges from 1.50 to 2.50 which mean average intelligent quotient, and majority enrolled the regular course loads of the second semester of the academic year 2018-2019. Also, from the twenty-two-item survey questionnaire administered in the six dimensions of challenges encountered, the Intellectual, Environmental, and Physical got an average weighted mean of 4.01, 3.87, and 3.7, respectively with a verbal interpretation of agree. Furthermore, the next dimensions of challenges encountered were Emotional, Financial, and Social which had an average weighted mean of 3.46, 3.30, and 2.98, respectively and all had a verbal interpretation of slightly agree. Moreover, from the eight engineering programs, four programs such as Electrical, Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing agreed to those six dimensions of challenges encountered while the other four programs like Civil, Computer, Electronics, and Mechatronics slightly agreed. Interviews were also conducted with randomly selected freshmen engineering students from the eight engineering programs. Improvements/Applications: The cited challenges may be remedied through this 21st Century learning intervention programs.
