NTU EEE graduating student, Mr Dexter Lee Ming Liang, is part of our Class of 2018! He is graduating with a Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) with Honours (Highest Distinction). He is also an award winner for the upcoming NTU Convocation for the following: Association of Consulting Engineers Singapore Gold Medal. We find out more about this NTU EEE graduand’s experiences in the School!

What were some of your favourite activities in NTU EEE?
“Thinking back, I really do miss hanging out with my friends after class to just chit-chat, study, or mug really hard together for a quiz the next day. We would study till as late as midnight, but it still was equally fun for us! I remember there was a time when we were so “desperate” that one of my friends started using packets of snacks to explain a certain concept for Data Structure and Algorithm. It was super hilarious and memorable for us. It was those late-night studying that made our friendships even closer.

Not to forget, EEE Family Day! The last family day at Sentosa was really a good one as I felt really relaxed, and just enjoyed the much-needed break from the endless Final Year Project (FYP) tasks. Please do continue to hold the event in Sentosa! Haha!”

What do you like about NTU EEE?
“It is not a school that just focuses on providing good education to the students. It’s also a school that presents many opportunities for students to grow as individuals as well. Besides that, the school really take cares of our well-being, such as bringing animals (dogs and cats) to school to really bring a smile to our faces!”

What are some of your experiences as an NTU EEE student?
“My very first event that I was involved in was the NTU EEE Tea Reception as a Vice-Chairperson, where I managed about 20 group leaders to conduct the activities for the prospective students. Next, I was the Assistant Chief Group Leader for the freshmen orientation programme Enitio, where I led one of the tribes. Lastly, being the Local Community Involvement Project (LCIP) director for the EEE LEAD programme, where together with my team, we organised a LCIP event for the members. These roles have definitely groomed me from being an introvert, to a more outspoken individual that is willing to take up more challenges.

Another memorable experience I had was my summer exchange at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. I enjoyed doing my modules there, as well as meeting new friends from other countries, such as from Taiwan, Sweden, the US, UK etc. We are still in contact till today!”

What are some of your achievements while being an NTU EEE undergraduate?
“I have been awarded the Dean’s List in 2017 and also, my FYP Project was selected as for the open house showcase, where I presented to the audience the potential of how wireless charging can become in the future. Being nominated to be one of the valedictorians as well, was something that I have never dreamt about, and I really treasured that.”

What are your plans after graduating?
“I am currently working in Keysight Technologies as an application engineer, where I provide technical support to my customers using my company’s software product. In fact, NTU is now one of my customers that I would need to give training to on the product! I believe it will feel bittersweet for me to enter the labs as a working adult instead of a student now.”

What do you have to say to current and future undergrads?
“Besides professors and the school staff, do not forget to seek help from seniors and alumni as well. They went through the same things as you, and they will give you the best advices on how certain things can be done, how to plan your modules, how to decide on what specialisation to choose from, etc. It was the seniors that helped me to be successful today.

Dare to take up opportunities that the school has provided as well. LEAD, Garage, Club, and Outreach. There are also other EEE events where you can take up roles! These student bodies present opportunities that let you grow as a person.

Lastly, it’s okay to make mistakes. Mistakes make you learn and grow. School is probably the only place where mistakes can be accepted, because they are part of learning. When you start working, employers would probably expect you to not make mistakes. So, dare to take up these opportunities provided to you now in NTU EEE and excel!”
