What were some of your favourite activities in NTU EEE?
EEE Day, I could meet  all my friends at the beginning of every semester, moreover, it provided me with great opportunities to communicate with my mentors and other professors in schools.

What do you like about NTU EEE?
I really appreciate the full support from EEE academic office for providing us the freedom to appeal courses and adjust the schedule, this helped a lot during the period of my part-time internship and final year. I could feel that EEE always promotes the development of individual potential ranging from technical research to leadership.

What are some of your experiences as an NTU EEE student?
During my freshman year, I worked as a sub-committee member in EEE Club publicity department, helping with the designing of the posters. I exchanged in Switzerland  École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in year 2, during which I have travelled all around Europe and had one of the most wonderful time. The exchange in EPFL has not only provided me a chance to study in a different academic atmosphere, but also allow me to have a deeper understanding of the European culture. Moreover, I’ve had a wonderful industrial attachment experience in ExxonMobil as an IT consulting intern for half year.

What are some of your achievements while being an NTU EEE student?
I was working as the president of Institution of Engineering and Technology NTU On Campus (IET-NTU) during my year three period, during which my team and I successfully planned tech-related events such as Google Industrial Visit, Shopee X IET Machine Learning Challenge, Raspberry Pi Workshop and etc. These events have encouraged engineering students to further explore their potential in technology field and appealed to wide spectrum of interests in technology and engineering.

What are your plans after graduating?

Since I found myself very interested in human computer interaction and user interface design throughout the study in IEM, I decide to pursue my future career in technology industry. Currently I am working in Shopee as a product manager, collaborating with the business teams and tech teams to launch and market new IT product features. I will be constantly studying the knowledge of UI/UX design and product management in work. In the future, I also hope I will have the opportunity to pursue a master’s degree in corresponding area.

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

Many of the undergrads will go to work after graduation, and some of you might be lost and don’t know what you could do, which industry or career path you should choose in the future. My suggestion is to make full use of the holidays and spare time during semesters and never stop trying things that you are interested in. Meanwhile, do not hesitate to make full use of the resources that the school and university provide such as career center and consultations from any professor or alumni. Last but not least, have as much fun as you could along the way in NTU!
