Vacation internship

ondering about how to make your life in NUS more fulfilling? Other than the usual and mundane “mugging” sessions and rushing around faculties for tutorials, here are some of the more popular Student Enrichment Programmes in stored for you, to make your time here in NUS more vibrant.

from the hectic “mugging” schedule here in Singapore, and go overseas to countries such as United States, Korea, Hong Kong, Germany, Sweden, Israel, etc., to study and learn about their rich and diverse culture. Hear from some of our seniors about their personal experience during their own SEP.

SEP, Student Exchange Programme. This is definitely a “plus-point” why some students come to NUS for. To be able to take a break

VIP, Vacation Internship Programme. Another highly-welcomed enrichment programme here at NUS, VIP allows students to work

as interns in some of the Engineering companies here, during their summer break (May – August). This allows students to gain a first-hand experience of how working at the actual engineering industry is like, and whether they would want to pursue an engineering career after their graduation. Once again, we have exclusive content from our seniors, as they share their perspective about their VIP experience, and what they have learnt throughout that experience.

S tudent Exchange Programme

Purdue University (USA) Dallan Seah Year 4 Chemical Engineering

On the University The typical American undergraduate program is structured differently from Singapore, in the sense that it places much heavier emphasis in continual assessment rather than the final exams. In Purdue, this is generally the case and I face the onerous task of meeting homework and project deadlines on a weekly basis. This might be a huge culture shock to the typical Asian college student, especially one who is expecting a slack time over in SEP. I was really fortunate to meet a group of awesome friends right from Day 1 and engage in highly productive communal sharing of the workload. As slack as this might sound, it actually expedites learning since there is now always an “expert” in the particular module for consultation. In Purdue, the quality of teaching makes it one of the best undergraduate colleges in America, and this is helped by the fact that they house some of the most renowned professors as well as authors of established textbooks, especially in the aerospace and chemical engineering departments. The strong international blend of students makes it really comfortable as a foreign exchange student to adapt to the new environment. As a dancer, Purdue’s College of Liberal Arts gave an excellent opportunity for me to engage in dance classes and performances for credit. What’s even better

is that I managed to map these dance classes back to NUS as UEMs. These classes were excellent opportunities to explore modern genres, as well as to mingle with some of the best dance professors/choreographers/dancers in the Mid-West.

“Breakfast Club” is a huge Purdue tradition where people dress-up in costumes and hit the bars/club at 5am on Saturday, get drunk, and then head over to the home football games.

Purdue is not located in a city and hence cost of living is significantly lower. Living expenses can be even lower if you choose to live in the many apartments off-campus. In general, things can be affordable if you know where to find them.

Purdue is located in the mid-west and is an excellent base to travel around US. Chicago is only less than 2 hours drive away and is a huge city for you to explore and go back to whenever you are free (I’ve travelled to Chicago for at least 5 times when I was in Purdue). Flights are generally cheaper from Chicago than Indiana.

Will highly recommend Hawkins Hall. It is a graduate residence for people above 21 of age (If you are a guy you will make it). It doesn’t come with a meal plan and this saves lots of money and gives you the flexibility in dining options. It has almost weekly events that almost means free food, and has good amenities and location (especially if you are in engineering). Purdue is a college where both academic and non-academic excellence cohabitate in the spine of the university experience. “Human versus Zombies” is a massivescale and campus-wide game of tag where humans try to survive zombie attacks with nerf guns. “Cactus” is a huge club on-campus that boasts really cheap drinks.

On Travelling

Reasons for Fall Semester 1) You get to buy winter clothing in US and it is much MUCH cheaper, especially in outlets 2) There is Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the BLACK FRIDAY SALE (much more imba that GSS) 3) You get to join the freshmen orientation program (if you are keen) and get to know people and orientation around the campus. 4) It is easier to travel since flights don’t get cancelled as often and everywhere is scenic and beautiful


SEP Experience My first impressions of South Korea was that it reminded me a lot of Singapore; familiar, yet having a tinge of novelty. Maybe this is because Singapore and Korea are so economically similar, but yet so culturally different. The subway system reminded me of our own local MRT system, albeit people queue for the trains and you stand on the right side of escalators. School was the usual place for assignments and deadlines. The only difference being that the people scurried about campus wearing multiple layers of clothing due to the chilly weather. Meals were mostly typical Asian food fare, eaten with a pair of chopsticks, but ALWAYS including that mandatory plate of kimchi.

Seoul National University (South Korea)

Liu Dali Year 4 Mechanical Engineering

Every day was a day of learning, both in and out of the classrooms. In my 4 months there in South Korea, I’ve hiked mountains, attended school festivals, and even spotted famous Korean celebrities while walking on the streets. For anyone who is about to go on SEP, definitely join the Exchange Student Society, if it is available in your host university! Hang out with the locals and other exchange students, learn their culture, try their food, and also celebrate their public holidays. While you may still be able to travel to a foreign country in the future, you will never have an opportunity to be an exchange student again.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” This phrase aptly sums up my student exchange in Munich, Germany. Deciding to go away on exchange was easy; the idea of fast cars, great beers and liberation from the shackles of the “Bell-Curve God” was enough of a pull for me. The initial few days felt so surreal; a new place, a new culture, a new world. The English language wasn’t to be seen nor heard. Looking to your left, then to your right, was the way to go before crossing the road. The baffling fact that shops and supermarkets closes at 8pm daily. And on weekends, the sight where Europeans sunbathe by the park, when the sun is out. Munich, in general, is a very safe and developed city, with the extra perks of large swaths of land and less congestion, which makes you feel less stressed, visually. As a guide, the cost of living can be comparable or even cheaper as compared to that in Singapore, if you are willing to cook (or find someone who can). Life as a student also comes with perks such as discounts to the various tourist attractions and even train tickets. Getting to know more about the city is easy as there are free city tours, as well as many fieldtrips organized by the University’s “IRO” equivalent department. In addition, the learning culture is totally different from that in Singapore; application for classes and application for exams are 2 separate things. Which means you can apply to attend lessons just for the fun of learning. If you are ever bored or tired, there is always a 4-storey high slide to help wake you up! The best part comes when there is actually an “engineer’s pride”, where engineers are being held in high regard. Personally, every day is a new learning experience by itself; provided that you dare to step out of your comfort zone and try. In these past 5 months, I have had the opportunity to experience many ‘firsts’, such as anxiousness of traveling alone and hitchhiking, the thrill of skydiving, scary but crazy fun of joining the street celebration when “FC Bayern” won the treble last season… Exchange is also about making friends, not only from the host country, but also from other nations as well. Interestingly, it will make you think and rethink what you know about Singapore; such as defining a unique Singapore culture and how to explain “Singlish” to others. Ultimately, going on this student exchange allows you to learn more about yourself. The choice to step out lies within you. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, don’t miss it.

S tudent Exchange Programme START

1. Check eligibility

Check your eligibility for SEP through this website http://www.eng.nus.edu.sg/sep/eligibility.htm

2. Application round opening

3. Check Available universities

There are 3 rounds for application. Look out for the opening periods of the application rounds which will be announced through email. Late application will not be accepted. You must apply at least 2 sems beforehand. (e.g. apply in year 2 sem 1 to go in year 3 sem 1)

Check which universities are available for application in that round. An excel sheet with the available unis and the number of places offered is usually attached in the email.

4. Choose partner universities

Indicate your choice of up to FIVE (5) unis via OPAS, the online portal for SEP application. At least three of your choices have to be from three different continents. In choosing, consider:

The application periods for FoE are as follows Round 1 - October Round 2 - January to February Round 3 - April

5. Module mapping

For each partner university you choose, you need to provide an initial study plan through OPAS. That is, the modules that you intend to take there. Do check the requirements of your course (e.g. ME dept requires min 2 core to be taken). After you have been offered a place in a university, you then have to provide a more detailed study plan and obtain approval. (See Step 8) Modules mapping will have to be approved if a student wishes to transfer the credits back to NUS. Details and forms for module mapping requests can be found at http://www.eng. nus.edu.sg/sep/mapping.htm.

7. Accept/Reject internal offer

Make accommodation arrangements (if you have not done so) with the partner uni. Make visa and travel arrangements too.

6. Interview

Students will have to go through an interview with their mentors as part of the application process.

Successful

Successful applicants will be informed of the partner university allocated to them via email.

Students will have to log into OPAS to accept/reject the offer. If you reject the offer, you will be placed on the waiting list for a university of your choice. However, if you are still unsuccessful, you may be barred for applying again for another SEP partner university in the subsequent round of application. (e.g. if you reject in round 1 you can only apply again in round 3)

9. Upon receiving acceptance from partner university

1.Whether the partner University has suitable courses for you. Eg, if you are an ME student, do not choose a university that does not have an ME equivalent department.. 2. Whether the partner University’s academic calendar for the semester of your choice is suitable for you. 3. Whether you will face any problems with the language of instruction. 4. Whether you will be able to comfortably finance your SEP stint.

Unsuccessful

You will be placed on the waiting list for a university of your choice. If you are still unsuccessful when the next round of application opens, you can apply again by updating your application form online if you still meet the application requirements.

8. After accepting internal offer

Prepare a study plan and get the necessary approval for mapping. Wait for an email from the Office of Undergraduate Programmes (OUP) with further instructions on submission of partner uni documents. Then, wait for the host uni’s evaluation (>=2 months).You will be notified once your application results are ready.

I AP/VIP I did my Vacation Internship Programme (VIP) during the summer break in 2012. Being like most students who don’t really think much about life after graduation, I didn’t really head into the VIP, blazing with determination to get something done. I just wanted to complete it, pass it and be done with it, since it was just another compulsory module under my department.

Tan Han Yang – ESP Year 4 Internship experience at Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE)

However, when I started my research project at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), I was under the supervision of a very driven scientist who works there. I realized then that the VIP wasn’t just a “requirement”, it was much much more. It allowed me to realize that I enjoyed doing research. I also enjoyed the mentally stimulating discussions I had with my “colleagues” (most of whom were scholars) and learning from everyone there. To be honest, I felt quite embarrassingly uneducated when I first started, because everyone else was talking about their research area with confidence, and there I was, still in the process of catching up to them by reading papers, and asking “stupid” questions. However, with the help of my supervisor and the fellow students working under her, I managed to carry out the project almost independently. The end result? We managed to publish a paper during the short time frame given, and I was there, part of it too! Frankly, I have to say that the VIP was a really beneficial “module”. I honestly feel that for those who aren’t required to do it should still take it up. Why? Because, for one, it allows you to have a “test-drive” of the industry / office / working environment that you are possibly considering to work at for your career, to see if it fits your tastes, without much cost to yourself! One caveat though, to be honest, is that sometimes, the VIP may give you a skewed outlook of the work you are doing, because sometimes you may be unlucky, and end up with a supervisor who doesn’t care much about you (which some may consider to be good, because it is slack). But my advice is to constantly bug your supervisor, let them know that you are really interested in working and learning. In the end, it is all about how much you want to gain out of this VIP. experience.

The Vacation Internship Programme (VIP) is more

Internship experience at Renewa- than just a holiday job. Part-time student, part-time engineer, put them together and that was ble Energy Corporation (REC) trainee what I was for the past 12 weeks. At first I really got a big shock when I found out about the location of my intern company, REC. It was at Tuas South, an area in which I have never even heard of.

So, I plucked those address into Google Maps, and turns out it was a place at the far end of the island. As someone who stays in the east, I had to wake up super early to travel, every day. Fortunately, the company provided a shuttle bus service from various MRT stations; just that I have be on time to wait for the bus at the pick-up points. On the first day, the interns were given a briefing, and we were posted to our respective departments. I was the only one whom got posted to Utilities & Infrastructure (U&I). It was at the far end of the manufacturing plant. I was greeted by my immediate superior, Mr Yusri, and my engineer mentor, Rathish, at U&I. They gave me a site orientation and showed me to my cubicle. It was a sea view cubicle, and I can even see Malaysia opposite the coast. The pantry area at the U&I was huge, and that was the usual place for tea time. Of course there’s work to be done. The first four weeks of the internship was more of learning, and I felt like a student back then. Reading notes on chilled water systems, compressed dry air units and cooling towers. There wasn’t any test, but of course I had to learn the terms and at least understand what the other engineers were saying. A typical day at work always starts with a morning meeting on the plant operations, where the operation engineers had to report on the systems’ condition within the plant.


IAP/VIP Experience The subsequent 8 weeks were spent on job training. I had the opportunity to tag along with Rathish into the plant’s energy facilities. It was an eye-opening experience to see the systems in actual working conditions. There were problems to troubleshoot, as well as maintenance to be done. It is not a usual desk job, which was what I like; not being stuck in office. Besides the notes on the facilities, I was also taught useful software, such as OSIsoft PI, which is the system used to monitor the utility systems commonly used by manufacturing plants. Being in the U&I department was great, as I was able to gain access into quite a number of areas within the plant because the utility systems are everywhere. That was where I could see raw material processing, manufacturing of solar panels and the finally, the product packaging. There wasn’t a lot of homework, just two reports which I had to hand in. Besides the downside of waking up very early in the morning, it was still a fruitful experience. The mechanical systems to look out for, the workflow of a manufacturing plant, and of course, the friendships gained from this holiday. Did I mention that we interns even had a plant tour to each other’s’ pantry, and have tea time together? *laughs* Well, that was towards the end of the programme. *shhh*

I spent my May 2012 summer vacation doing my Vacation Internship Programme (VIP) with Rolls Royce. I was attached to the Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Team at the Seletar Assembly and Test Unit, located on Rolls Royce’s Seletar Campus located in the Seletar Aerospace Park.

Lim Qing Wen – ME Year 4 Internship experience at RollsRoyce Singapore Pte Ltd

Being in the newly set up manufacturing plant, my task at Rolls was to aid my supervisor in setting up, as well as implement safe work practices in the plant in preparation for full scale operation when engines start to be manufactured within the plant itself. Besides that, I also assisted in, and coordinated on-site inspections to audit physical conditions and safe work practices around the site. That included the office, as well as the shop floor, from engine core, to fan case, and even the engine test facility. It was fun and a unique experience to be doing such an internship, being in HSE, it gave me many opportunities to explore the facility, and see many other places that people usually do not have access to. I often had to go do my rounds around the facility, such that people actually think that we are taking a break by walking around, but in fact we are just doing our job! Besides that, I was also tasked to conduct the mandatory Work, Safety and Health (WSH) Committee meetings, new employee HSE orientation and other tasks that may come along the way. Sometimes, tasks assigned to you may seem daunting and you do not know how to approach the task at hand. But interns are interns for a reason, and no one will blame you if you do not know how to do the more difficult tasks! Do not be afraid to ask, do not be afraid to make mistakes! As the VIP period is too short, there is not much time for the company to put you through proper training and thus there may be a lot of on the job training. Do not be afraid to ask and learn, after all, we want to make the most out of this internship despite the short time period. I feel that the VIP programme offered by the Engineering Faculty should be taken by everyone if possible! Not only does it cover 6MCs of UEM, it gives us a chance to be exposed to the working life outside school, have an opportunity to experience working in the industry of your choice, and also not forgetting to get some allowance during your vacation! All in all, participating in the VIP has definitely opened my eyes to the industry, as well as opening doors and also the possibility to build a career with the company the student interned with. experience.

F aces of Engin Marjorie

Marjorie Year 4 Double Degree (Chemical Engineering & Business) Previous N-House House Chair-person Resident of Kent Ridge Hall in Year 1 Went to Finland for Student’s Exchange Programme


Let’s start off simple, what are your aspirations? I want to be a WORLD CLASS BAKER, and open my very own café. I love baking, and I like baking during my free time. I try out a new baking recipe every month. If next time I can’t get a job, maybe I can ask someone to invest in me, so I can open my bakery / café. You stayed in Kent Ridge Hall in Year 1. How was hall life like? Did you enjoy it? Hall life was awesome!! You get to know more people outside of your own faculty. All these camp experience that you have had, did you enjoy them? Was it enriching? I didn’t join Engin Camp when I was a freshie, so it was a bit regretful. Even though I’m mostly in Engin, I don’t really know much of the people here. How did you juggle your time between hall life and school work? I feel that you have to realise that there is a limit to how much you can participate in the hall activities. Draw the line when it’s getting overboard, and focus on your priorities.

keep on track with what’s being taught, it will become easier to cope with, How was your SEP experience in Finland like? Would you recommend going for SEP to your fellow peers / juniors in Engin? Exchange is REALLY FUN! I recommend that everyone go for it, if given the chance. Going for the exchange is like taking a break from the studies in NUS. I managed to travel a lot around Europe with my friends, and it was a splendid experience.

and market research you need to put in before that?? Well, I guess these are just dreams, for now… Let’s move on to something more informal. Any eye-candies out there in Engin? Not really… Biz Faculty has lots of hot guys though :) What is the craziest thing you have done in Uni? *Editor’s Note: Reply has been omitted due to nature of content*

“The days are long, but the years are short.” Can you share with us, how have you achieved what you have? I feel that it all boils down to priorities. Doing the right things at the right time. When you have to study, just do it. Don’t procrastinate. However, it’s not just about studying all the way. You’d still want to make the most out of your University life, as it’s the last stretch of your education before you start working :) Where do you like to hang out and study? Why?

How much time do you spend on studying each week? How do you manage your time to study effectively? Any tips?

I like to study at home nowadays. There’s minimal distraction at home, and I feel that it is more conducive.

Every week there is something new being taught, so I aim to finish the revision of the week’s topics within the week, and not let it “snowball” on and on. Once you maintain your revision and

If money didn’t matter, what would you want to do in life? I want to open my CAFÉ!! But MONEY DOES MATTER!! :) Do you know how much capital

Which Disney princess would you want to be? Why? Belle. (Beauty & The Beast) She managed to tame a beast! *laughs* If you can make a beast gentle, it’s the greatest feat on earth!! If you could choose 1 superpower, what would it be and why? I want to FLY!!! Then I can travel anywhere without paying for air ticket :) Lastly, any quotes or shoutouts that you will like to say to the rest of your fellow engineers in NUS? “The days are long, but the years are short”. Even though you may be caught up with school and all that, the 4 years here in NUS is actually quite short. So join more activities, and make more friends!!!

F aces of Engin Hidayuh

Hidayuh Year 1 Chemical Engineering Student. Currently part of NUS Ilsa Tari (Malay Dance)


Let’s start off simple, what are your aspirations?

If money didn’t matter, what would you want to do in life?

Briefs. I think boxers are too practical, and not sexy enough!

I want to live in Abu Dhabi and ride camels!! *smiles happily*

I would like to live in London or New York, and work for Vogue magazine!! Then I can write fashion articles, and attend fashion shows, and try all those beautiful shoes. I think it is something I will enjoy, as I can meet many different people and celebrities.

Which Disney princess would you want to be? Why?

How did you juggle your time between school work and your other commitments? I allocate my time out appropriately. Weekdays for my friends and doing anything fun. As for study, I leave it to during the weekends. Since you only study during the weekends, how do you manage this time effectively? I make the most out of this time when I really get down to studying. I really utilize all the textbooks required for the module, even if they are optional. I usually practice these textbooks questions, so that I can understand the concepts. Are you planning to apply for SEP? YES!!! I want to go to Manchester!! Coz’ it’s in the UK, and I want to visit my friend who is studying there. And… I don’t like football… (MAN U) Is that your only reason for wanting to go there for SEP? Not really. I also want to go to a school where the architecture is nice and “old-school” style. Just like the “Harry Potter” kind. What is the one thing you wish you could change / improve about yourself? I want to be more gentle and demure. I think I’m sometimes a bit too loud and outspoken…

Let’s move on to something more informal. Are you single / attached? I’m single :)

Anna! (Frozen) She’s bubbly and can sing well. However, wanting to marry a guy that she’s only met for 1 day was quite foolish of her. Is it true that engineering doesn’t have pretty girls / hot guys? There are many hot / pretty girls in Engin. But guys… probably

“I think boxers are too practical, and not sexy enough!” Then, tell us about your ideal kind of guy.

not… or maybe I haven’t looked around enough to find one :P

Tall, charming, and metrosexual kind. Like Ryan Gosling, with the characteristics of a typical drama good guy.

If you could choose 1 superpower, what would it be and why?

What do you think is your best feature and quality? Why?

The ability to FLY! Then I can travel around the world quick and fast! And I think the feeling when you’re flying should be really good.

I like my cheekbones; because they are high :) I like the inner demure side of myself. *laughs*

How do you stay slim?

What is the craziest thing you have done in Uni? I once went to the 21st storey of Tembusu College and shouted crazily!! Something random. Which do you think looks sexier on guys, boxers or triangular briefs?

Just studying in Engin can keep me slim. All those stairs and slopes to climb everyday… :/ Lastly, any quotes or shoutouts that you will like to say to the rest of your fellow engineers in NUS? Find me if you’re GAY!!! I want a gay best friend. Metrosexual male kind :)

F aces of Engin Kai Bin

Kai Bin Year 2 Electrical Engineering Student Was part of Engin IFG Basketball Probably the next Engin IFG Basketball Captain.


Let’s start off simple, what are your aspirations? I want to start up a company (entrepreneur). Currently, I’m developing an application with my teammates, and it hope that it will become a success :) Other than studying, do you participate in any social activities during your free time? I don’t participate in much social activities, but I will definitely arrange some time to go to the gym to work out, and play some sports, such as basketball. How much time do you spend on studying each week? How do you manage your time to study effectively? Any tips? About 30 hours a week? Good time management is very important, and I will not go out with my friends unless there is a need to, as I priorities my work 1st. Mug HARD people!!!

What is the one thing u wish u could change / improve about yourself? I hope that I can become more patient while doing my work. I also wish I can prioritise better, as I have neglected a lot of important people, and aspirations.

Any eye-candies out there in Engin? Too many to be named! *smiles cheekily*

“If you work hard for whatever you strive for, you will eventually succeed.” Can you share with us, how have you achieved what you have? The good grades, outstanding non-academic profile, etc… Put in my best effort, and the good grades can be achieved :) If money didn’t matter, what would you want to do in life?

What do you think is your best feature? Why? My tanned skin. I have naturally tanned skin, and they look SEXY!! Something random. Do you prefer boxers or triangular briefs? Boxers!! I like it LOOSE :X

Are you planning to go on exchange? If so, where and why?

I will not be studying then. *laughs* I want to be a part-time investor, and an entrepreneur.

Yes, I’m going to Sweden. The main reason is because I haven’t been to Europe before, and this will be an eye-opener for me. Also, my friends told me that the place is gorgeous, and that I will finally get a chance to see the northern lights! *smiles happily*

Any advice you would like to share to your fellow engineers out there who wish to be like you?

When choosing a country to go for SEP, what do you look out for?

Let’s move on to something more informal. Tell us about your ideal guy / girl?

Fun! The University ranking can’t be too high, if not I will be mugging instead of having fun. I will also choose a place which I seldom get to go.

Sporty, long hair, and kind hearted!

If you work hard for whatever you strive for, there will be a chance that you will eventually succeed.

Describe Engineering in 1 word/phrase. Why? Tough but meaningful. If you could choose 1 superpower, what would it be and why? I want to be able to know all the exams questions beforehand!! *Editor’s Note: Isn’t knowing the answer a better superpower??* Lastly, any quotes or shoutouts that you will like to say to the rest of your fellow engineers in NUS? Play hard, but work HARDER!!!

F aces of Engin Zhi Yuan

ZhiYuan Year 2 Mechanical Engineering Student Part of the Design Centric Programme (DCP) Signed on as Air Force Engineer with Scholarship. Currently part of Recreational Frisbee.


Let’s start off simple, what do you think is the most important in life? I think that just having fun in life is most important to me  As our theme for this issue of FUSE is “Outstanding”, can you name one aspect in which you think you are outstanding at? Why? Hmm, I have a good work-life balance? People say that you cannot balance work, study, play and sleep. But I actually manage to balance all of them. I manage to get enough rest, finish my tutorials and studying, and still have around 3 – 4 hours of play time a day  How much time do you spend on studying each week? How do you manage your time to study effectively? Any tips? About 20 hours a week? I’m a person who listens better than I read. So I make it a point to go for the lectures, and learn what I can during that period. I also finish all my tutorials before going to class, so I can clear any doubts that I have. Are you planning to go on exchange? If so, where and why? Yes, I’m going to Finland for SEP. I chose Finland because I wanted to go to Europe to travel around. I think that it is going to be really fun and exciting. Are you planning to do IAP / VIP? Why? I am going for VIP to gain the working experience in different fields. I’m interested in aerospace, but I might not be able to

get an internship in aerospace. So I would like to have some work experience in any other company.

Attached. Hmm, I’ve never really thought about this… But I guess, my ideal would have to be patient, and thrifty :)

Some people choose VIP based on their interests, and use it to “test waters”. Is that the case for you?

Any eye-candies out there in Engin? (other than your girlfriend)

I would like to be able to get into an aerospace company for VIP. But if I’m unable to, I am still fine with going to any other company, just to gain some working experience.

My GF is not in Engin :) *smiles* Something random. Do you prefer boxers or triangular briefs?

“I think that just having fun in life is most important to me.” What is one bad quality about yourself? What is the one thing u wish u could change / improve about yourself? It is very hard for me to get started on studying. I waste a lot of time procrastinating. One thing I could change is to be more determined to do stuff. Can you share with us, how have you achieved what you have? The good grades, outstanding non-academic profile, etc… Finishing all my tutorials! I use those tutorials as revision, and see if I’ve understood the concepts. I finish all the past year papers as well. But usually, by the end of the semester, I will just forget everything! *laughs* Let’s move on to something more informal. Are you single / attached? Tell us about your ideal guy / girl?

Briefs OF COURSE!! Because I’ve been wearing those since young! *laughs* Describe Engineering in 1 word/phrase. Why? Math… It is basically all about calculations, here in Engin. At least that is what I feel, from the modules that I’ve taken. If you could choose 1 superpower, what would it be and why? To be able to fly. So that I can save time on travelling  Do you know how much a waste of time travelling is! *rage* Lastly, any quotes or shoutouts that you will like to say to the rest of your fellow engineers in NUS? I am FRIENDLY!!! *grins cheekily*

F aces of Engin Min Yu

Jing Xian Year 3 Civil Engineering Student Global Engineering Programme (GEP) Dive Club President (’12 / ’13) Operations Head of Operation Orion (’11 – ’12 and ’12 – ’13). Went to Illinois for SEP (Student’s Exchange Programme).


Let’s start off simple, what are your aspirations?

SEP by yourself, so as to become more independent.

I want to be happy, and find a good job which pays well :)

Have you done / planning to do IAP / VIP? Why?

Our theme for this issue of FUSE is “Outstanding”. Can you name one aspect in which you think you are outstanding at? Why?

I’ve completed my VIP, as part of my scholarship requirement. I think that the internship allows you to know the industry before you actually start working there. It also helps you to realign your interest and helps you to confirm what kind of industry you might be interested in.

Let’s move on to something more informal. What do you think is your best feature? Why? My eyes. *winks*

I was the Operations Head for Operation Orion. We managed to complete amazing things like the construction of a chicken farm. It was great, and it was also the 1st time I’d lead a team of people to accomplish such a feat. That I feel is an outstanding achievement to me. How much time do you spend on studying each week? How do you manage your time to study effectively? Any tips? I try to maximise the free time that I have when I’m not doing anything else like CCAs, or spending time with my family, and study during that time. My tip is to have a goal in mind. Set deadlines for yourself. It will let you have something to focus on. Also, don’t procrastinate!!! How was your SEP experience in Illinois like? Would you recommend going for SEP to your fellow peers / juniors in Engin? It was quite stressful to say the least. The mode of assessment is continual, and every week there is some form of submission of assignment. Travelling-wise, it was an eye-opening experience for me, and it was very fun. It allowed me to appreciate Singapore more. I recommend going for

What is one bad quality that you have? Low confidence levels when I’m dealing with a large crowd.

What is the craziest thing you have done during Uni? Bungee jumping at Macau Tower! Which Disney princess would you want to be? Why? Mulan. She is brave and courageous. I want to be like her, and be able to step out of my comfort zone confidently.

“Set deadlines for yourself. It’ll let you have something to focus on.” Do you think that studying with your friends / having each other’s support during the crunch period is important? Does it yield you better results? It actually depends on the type of friend I study with. It is good that you can ask and consult each other when you are having a problem. I think that my friends are really good study partners :) If money didn’t matter, what would you want to do in life? National Geographic reporter / explorer. I would want to explore volcanoes and mountains, or go diving and explore the deep blue sea. Anything related to nature is fine for me actually :)

Is it true that engineering doesn’t have pretty girls / hot guys? Any eye candies? Not true!! But then, I study too much to notice them. I will catch occasional glimpses of them but I usually don’t know their names. Which do you think looks sexier on guys, boxers or triangular briefs? Depends on how hairy the guy is? *chuckles* Boxers might be more suitable if… Lastly, any quotes or shoutouts that you will like to say to the rest of your fellow engineers in NUS? Don’t study too much! Must remember to have fun :)

Min Yu Year 4 Material Science Engineering Plays Netball and Dance Resident of Raffles Hall in Years 1 & 2. Went to Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (HKUST) for Summer Programme


Let’s start off simple, what are your aspirations? I want to be more involved with my passion, which is dancing :) How was hall life like? Did you enjoy it? It was great. I managed to make many close-knit friends there, whom we still keep in contact with. We had many “HTHT” (Heart-to-Heart Talk) sessions, and also suppers! AWESOME!!! How did you juggle your time between hall life and school work? Discipline!! You’ve got to know when and how to turn down supper invites and other activities when you are really busy, rushing on reports and projects. Other than studying, do you participate in any social activities during your free time? “Jio” friends go cafes, eat nice food, and SHOPPING!! I like going dancing and clubbing too ;) But mainly, it’s about going out with a close group of friends. By the way, I LOVE to go dancing!! As our theme for this issue of FUSE is “Outstanding”, can you name one aspect in which you think you are outstanding at? Why? Probably people’s 1st reaction to my height (170cm)? *laughs* I think I have a great character and personality too :P Have you done IAP / VIP? Why?

as a research intern. I chose to go there because I wanted to explore a more materials related job. But I didn’t really like it. I think a finance job would suit me more.

Something random. Which do you think looks sexier on guys, boxers or triangular briefs?

What is the one thing u wish u could change / improve about yourself?

Which Disney princess would you want to be? Why?

I wish to become more outspoken.

DEFINITELY BOXERS!!!

Cinderella. I find that her story is very intriguing, and her character is whom i hope to be.

“Nah, no bad qualities!! I’m Perfect!!!” What’s one bad quality that you have? Nah, no bad qualities!! I’m PERFECT!!! *laughs* If money didn’t matter, what would you want to do in life?

Is it true that engineering doesn’t have pretty girls / hot guys? Not really… There are a lot of pretty good looking Engin peeps out there :) You just have to look closely to notice.

I’d like to contribute more to the society, help the less fortunate. Also, I hope to be someone who can inspire people, especially women, to find greater confidence within themselves, and prove their self-worth.

If you could choose 1 superpower, what would it be and why?

Any eye-candies out there in Engin?

Lastly, any quotes or shoutouts that you will like to say to the rest of your fellow engineers in NUS?

There used to be some, but now… Aiyah, actually, still have bah :P What do you think is your best feature? Why? I like my eyes!! And maybe my nose too? :)

The ability to read minds. Because there’s nothing else more complex than that.

Be more confident, step out of your comfort zone. Most engineers are slightly soft spoken. Also, never force anything. Give it your best shot and then let it be. If it’s meant to be, it will be.

I did an internship, like VIP, at ST Kinetics. My job scope was

Lady M® Confections is the pioneer of the well-loved and much copied Mille Crêpe cake. Its signature cake Lady M® Mille Crêpes, features no less than twenty paper thin handmade crêpes layered with ethereal light pastry cream, gently caramelized on top until golden. Each handcrafted Mille Crêpes cake takes approximately 10 hours to create and is made using only the finest ingredients to a secret recipe that has been perfected over the past 12 years. The queues around the original Lady M® neighbourhood cake boutique on the Upper East Side of New York around seasonal celebrations are as famed as the signature Mille Crêpe cake it serves. It is the special care and attention in creating every Lady M® cake that has led to a loyal following at New York City’s top restaurants.

CHOCOLATE MONT BLANC

strawberry shortcake

Deriving its name from bearing resemblance to its snow-capped mountains, this dessert was a wickedly addictive heap of joy from start to finish, with a tinge of rich earl grey flavour that balanced its palate.

A combination of fresh strawberries, light cream and fluffy vanilla sponge in every bite.

ham and cheese sandwich The Panini bread made for a nice picture of what one would expect of this classic. The ham was nicely complemented with a touch of garlic. Cheese overwhelms your senses right from the very first bite. A definite favourite for the bread lovers out there.

A visual treat with a variety of fruits peaking beneath a light dusting of powdered sugar. Our panel however would have preferred a thinner crust and a thicker spread of custard to complement the generous portion of slightly tart berries.

Crispy bread with a filling of moist, tender beef, and a good selection of greens.

Mixed Green Salad Orange Tarragon dressing made for a refreshingly appetite stimulating salad. Chopped almonds add an additional factor of crunch to the already crisp greens. All sandwiches are served with a portion of Mixed Greens

OUR CHICKEN HISTORY pted to use plain white flour, the nutty taste of the Fried chicken found its way to Korea in the 1980s, and it has been a Yasik (late-night meal) favourite ever since. With “Hallyu” stars advertising for various “Korean Fried Chicken” chains and restaurants ever expanding their sauce variations, the humble fried chicken has since gained glory. Served alongside draught beer and Korean soju, this Yasik favourite rank high on the charts of simply irresistible guilty food crimes.a

Grab a handful of crispy fries, with the tasty fried chicken wing...Now who is the best?


Chicken Up offers a wide variety of other Korean dishes and drinks including: 1. Appetisers – Korean-style Fried Green Chillies, Kimchijeon (Kimchi Pancake) and Ddeokbokki (Korean Spicy Rice Cakes). These appetising sides, gives one a taste of some of Korea’s authentic street food. 2. Truffle Fries – Thick and crispy fries, topped off with truffle salt to give a strong smoky after-taste.

3. Fish Cake Soup – A warm bowl of thick broth with hearty flavours of green onion and seafood. 4. Golbengi – Spicy Korean mixture of vegetables and fresh sea snails, served with cold white noodles. The dish is served cold, and is an appetising dish. 5. Pupa – A famous spicy Korean pupa soup with vegetables. An exotic dish for the daring. 6. Drinks – Various well blended flavours which are popular in Korea. 7. Watermelon Soju – One of the famous cocktails served up at the restaurant, this is a mix of Korean soju and watermelon juice, served up in a shelled out watermelon. Do call up to reserve this drink, as it sells out fast.

Yangnyum Chicken

Do not be frightened by its devilishly spicy looking coating. Our team found the glaze a combination of sweet and spicy, that certainly did not compromise the crisp of the chicken. This is it is sure to give you a pleasant surprise.

Curry Up Chicken

Blanketed under a generous portion of sauce, these are not for the dainty. The curry is towards the Japanese variety, and much milder than the local version; a bit on the salty side but it serves to flavour the chunkier portions of chicken. A bit of its crunch was sacrificed.

Spicy Up Chicken

Unlike the sauced varieties, this version leaves the beauty of the fried chicken skin to take centre-stage. The chicken flesh was nice and moist but those big on flavour may crave more salt alongside the spice.

Soya Sauce Chicken Wings

We loved the delightful crisp, crumbly skin. The wings were well marinated and seasoned to the bone. The well-fried chicken wing is coated with soy sauce, which is not only savoury, but gives a sweet taste. This is a definite musttry for the sweet-toothed.

Its first outlet in Bedok Mall boasts 11 flavours of wings, a contrast to most other buffalo wing outlets here known for their spicy offerings with dangerously escalating levels of heat. Wings come in the classic or boneless variety. For the classic, wings are fried to render off the fat leaving a beautiful thin crust. The boneless version uses chicken thigh and a coating of batter for those who go crazy for golden, crusty nubs.
