Mr Zheng Qiming is graduating with NTU EEE’s Class of 2017, achieving a Bachelor of Engineering (Information Engineering & Media) with first class honours. He is an award winner for the upcoming NTU Convocation for the following: Lee Kuan Yew Gold Medal.
What were some of your favourite NTU EEE activities?
I have two activities to mention: Firstly, the IEM Get-together Lunch, where I got to network with my course mates. Secondly the EEE Day, where I got to network with my mentor and other professors in a casual setting.
What are some experiences you had as a NTU EEE student?
I travelled to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) for a summer study, as well as to the Technical University of Munich (TUM) for a full semester exchange. These overseas academic stints undeniably broadened my horizons and built my global mindset. In addition, I was a main committee member of NTU Piano Ensemble club and performed on stage in an annual external concert. I undoubtedly learned about collaboration through the duet performances with my partner, as well as developed my leadership skills from being involved in organising the concert.
What do you like about NTU EEE?
NTU EEE has numerous great collaborations and programmes with other reputable international institutions, such as with the Technical University of Munich and the Rolls-Royce@NTU Corporate Laboratory.
Also, the NTU EEE curriculum is well structured while leaving enough freedom for different students to navigate and find out the directions they really want. There are absolutely various specialisations, projects and electives to choose from.
What are some of your achievements while being a NTU EEE undergraduate?
I’ve been named on the Dean’s List of the faculty for 3 consecutive years.
What are your plans after graduating?
I’ve started working as a Product Management Associate in Shopee under Sea Limited. It’s a role where I can leverage on the skillset acquired from my multidisciplinary major (IEM), but I know I’ll keep on learning hungrily as learning is a lifelong process.
What do you have to say to current and future undergrads?
No matter what degree you might be pursuing, you can’t miss one extremely important lesson which is “Know Yourself”. You won’t be graded by any teacher for that, and I know I didn’t fail it during my time at NTU EEE! As a NTU EEE student, I was definitely given the awesome privilege to explore, learn about myself, or even just be myself. I guess that’s what the School’s tagline (while I was an undergrad), “One degree, many opportunities” really means.
