​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

ShenShaoJu is also an EEE Leadership Award winner, was the Chairperson of Oktoberfest in the NTU German Society and went to Seoul, South Korea for his Summer Exchange Program at Sungkyunkwan University. We find out more about this NTU EEE graduand’s experiences in the School!

What were some of your favourite activities in NTU EEE?
One of my favourite activities is ENITIO Transition & Orientation Programme (TOP) , which is the EEE Freshmen Orientation Camp. ENITIO TOP started in 2017 and I was one of the pioneer members of this orientation program.  My team and I managed to design and develop the first technology-based Freshmen Orientation Program in School of EEE. Our ideas and final products were also used in many other school events. 

Another interesting activity is the NTU EEE Family Day – a one-day event which provides a platform for all EEE students, professors and staff to come together to interact. Students can chat with their mentors and peers in a more comfortable and informal session, which helps to instil a strong sense of belonging in our EEE family. Of course, there are great food & beverages, talent show and lucky draw during the event.

What do you like about NTU EEE?
NTU EEE provides students with many opportunities for their personal development which can be in terms of soft skills, hands-on skill or further career development. For the past three years, I have attended many professional workshops organised by School of EEE. Through these workshops, I was able to learn many coding languages such as Arduino and Python. In addition, I had opportunities to visit many local and international companies to understand their culture and different roles in the company. This is helpful for me to discover a suitable career in the industry after graduation. 

The staff of NTU EEE are approachable and friendly people. Regardless which department they are in, be it the Academic Programme Office, the Student Life and Development Unit and the Outreach office, they are willing to help students who have problems in both academic and non-academic areas.

What are some of your experiences as an NTU EEE student?
I was given many opportunities to take on different leadership roles in NTU and NTU EEE. For instance, I was the Welfare Officer and Chairperson of Oktoberfest in the NTU German Society, Technical Advisor for NTU EEE/IEM ESCENDO Camp 2018, senior buddy for NTU EEE FOP 2017, and Technology Research and Development Officer for NTU EEE/IEM ENITIO 2017.

I also went to Seoul, South Korea for my Summer Exchange Program at Sungkyunkwan University. It was a wonderful exchange experience as I was able to experience the Korean culture, try the local food and visit some famous tourist attractions. During the one-month exchange period, I met many friends from all over the world and interacted with them to understand their culture. My roommate was from France, and he shared with me many stories about his country and hometown which excited me to visit Europe soon.

What are some of your achievements while being an NTU EEE student?
I was the Technical Advisor for NTU EEE/IEM ESCENDO Camp 2018. During this event, I mentored Assistant Chairperson (Technical) in leading a team of 30 students to develop a series of technology-based games, from brainstorming ideas, research and development, sourcing for hardware to creation of final product

I also worked with Garage@EEE ambassador to organise various workshops (such as Ardunio, Python and Machine Learning) for Junior College students, Undergraduates and Master students.

What are your plans after graduating?

I will pursue a part-time PhD in analog mixed signal IC design and work as Project Officer in NTU.

What do you have to say to current and future undergrads?

Don’t be shy, if you have any questions, just ask! In your 3 to 4 years of university life, you may face many difficulties and challenges. Please don’t be afraid, you can always seek help from your friends, professors and staffs. Studying is not the only task you can do in the university, you can explore more interesting activities and join different student bodies to develop your personal skills. Grab all the opportunities and stay positive.
