This study determined the educational value among marine engineering students at John B. Lacson Colleges Foundation for the school year 2002-2003. Data were gathered through the 24-item “Educational Values Inventory”. Two hundred ninety-eight randomly chosen first year marine engineering students were the respondents of the study. To statistically analyze the data, the mean, frequency count and rank were employed as descriptive statistics. The results of this study revealed that the most predominant esthetic value among the students was “appreciation of the beautiful and harmonious things in life”, while the least predominant was “attention is felt along courses in art, literature, and music.” The most predominant leadership value among the student was “courses concerned with organizing and directing people,” and the least predominant was “courses concerned with how to direct and organize people.” “Gaining insight into the meaning and pursuit of life” was the most predominant philosophical value among the students, while the least predominant was “courses dealing with philosophical and or religious idea.” Moreover, “understanding of social problems and their possible solutions”” was the most predominant social value among the students, and the least predominant was “courses concerned with how to understand and be of help to their people.” The most predominant scientific value was “courses in scientific and mathematical fields” while the least predominant was “understanding of scientific theories and the laws of nature.” “Preparation for a vocation or profession of one’s choice” was the most predominant vocational value and the least predominant was “courses in one’s chosen vocation or professional field.”
