NTU EEE graduand (Class of 2018): Tan Kwan Hong

NTU EEE graduating student, Ms Tan Kwan Hong, is part of our Class of 2018! From taking up various leadership positions in EEE camps, EEE Club activities, to overseas volunteer trips, we find out more about this NTU EEE graduand who seems to have had her finger in just about every pie in the School!

 

What were some of your favourite activities in NTU EEE?
“One of my most memorable experience would be the NTU EEE/IEM Efinity Freshmen Orientation Camp I joined during my first year as a freshman and then in my second year as a senior attached to an orientation group (OG). I joined the freshmen in orientation games and activities, shared my university experiences, as well as assisted the senior group leaders in team bonding and well-being of the freshmen.

The experiences that I’ve been through with my course mates and the efforts everyone put in, in the face of challenges, have forged many meaningful friendships and bonds that have accompanied me through my years of university life. Those were good and fun times.”

What do you like about NTU EEE?
“NTU EEE/IEM is a huge cohort, a big family. We get to meet a lot of people from different backgrounds, whether they are local/foreign students, professors or technicians. And through many events, activities or even curriculum project works, there is a great array of opportunities for interactions and learning from one another which may not be from someone you knew beforehand. That also depends whether the individual is willing to open himself/herself up, seek meaningful interactions and make his/her university live different!”

What are some of your experiences as an NTU EEE student?
“Besides my experience as a senior attached which I mentioned in the previous question, I also volunteered for Freshmen Makers' Programme 2016 as one of the many group leaders for the incoming freshmen during my second year.

During my 3rd year, I also had the opportunity to take up a leadership role in EEE Club as a Vice-President in Academic and Welfare together with a group of awesome and hardworking committee members. In this role, I got to be involved in major school events such as the biannual exam welfare pack distribution and planning for multiple academic workshops for NTU EEE students. I worked together with the club’s Academic Secretary to organise academic workshops such as the popular MATLAB workshop for students, and other computer programming language related workshops such as the Python and Arduino workshop (collaboration with EEE Garage). In addition, the EEE Club also organised Professor Sharing sessions, Industry visits and a UAV workshop (collaboration with NTU UAVionics Society). Later on, I was involved in election events and handover to the next committee as a Returning Election Officer of EEE Club.

In addition, I am also grateful to have a chance to be part of two Overseas Community Involvement Programmes (OCIPs) organised by EEE Club, the trips were called YEP Nias and EEE LEAD respectively. I travelled to countries like Indonesia, Nias Island and Thailand, Chiang Mai.

I also embarked with my course mates on a summer exchange to Korea, Seoul at Hanyang University.”

What are some of your achievements while being an NTU EEE undergraduate?
“EEE is not an easy course to study, everybody knows that. So, for academic achievement, I have put in my best efforts and am happy with where I am. I guess from my 4 years as an NTU EEE undergraduate, my greatest takeaways are from my non-academic involvements. For example, I had leadership involvement as NTU EEE Club VP in Academic and Welfare, I was a member of 2 NTU EEE OCIPs (YEP Nias and EEE Lead) as a Safety Officer, and was a Group leader for Freshmen Orientation Camps. Through these activities, I developed lasting friendships, strengthened interpersonal skills and lastly, discovered opportunities that allowed me to grow as an individual in all aspects!”

What are your plans after graduating?
“I have been offered a job in an IC company and I'm really excited to start work there and begin a challenging and fulfilling career! On top of that, I have already planned a post-graduation trip to Korea to see more of the world; hope it will give me more fresh perspectives and help me in my career ahead.”

What do you have to say to current and future undergrads?
“To study in EEE is not easy, therefore we must help one another to make it through. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and don’t be afraid to make new friends. Most importantly, be genuine in what you do.”
