What are some of your favourite university activities?
They are: the NTU Fest, NTU EEE Mentor Meet Mentee, and Celebrate NTU.

What are some experiences you had as a NTU EEE student?
In my third year of undergraduate study, there is an EEE module called Design and Innovation Project (DIP). There are a lot of interesting project thematics that can be chosen for this module! I chose the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) thematic. The project’s objective was to assemble a UAV and implement some cool features as a ​team of 10. The project itself was fun, yet very challenging. At the end, we learned a lot of cool things like how to assemble a UAV, fly it, etc., and definitely made a lot of good friends; as well as learning valuable teamwork. Therefore, my DIP experience was immensely satisfying.

What do you like about NTU EEE?

  1. The community: the students, staffs, and the faculties, are overall friendly and approachable!
  2. The chance to interact and learn from remarkable professors in their respective fields.
  3. The comprehensive and challenging curriculum.
  4. The activities organised by the NTU EEE student club and the EEE Pastoral Care & Career Advisory Office.


What are some of your achievements while being a NTU EEE undergraduate?
I have been on the Dean’s List thrice, for academic years 2013/14, 2014/15, and 2015/16

What are your plans after graduating?
I’m actually going to continue my studies in NTU EEE, by pursuing my PhD! I was offered admission to a research programme with the Nanyang President’s Graduate Scholarship (NPGS), and I have accepted the offer.

What do you have to say to current and future undergrads?
I am very grateful to be a part of the NTU EEE family. As an undergrad here, I have made plenty of good friends, the chance to learn from several remarkable professors, internship experience with a huge multinational company, a good amount of research experience, and even the chance to write a paper for a peer-reviewed conference! Yet, I still feel that there are a lot more experiences I could have attained. So, while you’re still in NTU EEE, make use of your time to the fullest and try to grasp all the finest opportunities!
