Upcoming Events (Apr’19-Sep’19) Graduation Ceremony 2019 DEEE Immersion Program 2019 Student Oversea Trip – Seoul

DEEE Programme Chair Dear DEEEians, Once again, the school term has started. Year 1s, welcome to the DEEE family. To our Year 2s, 3s, glad to have you back! As some of you have known, starting from this semester (AY2019 Sem 1), we will be having a new specialisation option for the Year 1s – Aerospace Electronics, which adds on to our current Communications and Microelectronics specialisation tracks. This means an increased pool of industry partners and internship/job opportunities for all DEEE students. Let me introduce Ms Eng Pei Chee, the Cohort Lead for the 1910 Year 1s batch. She will join Mr Melvin Ng (1810 Cohort Lead) and Dr Tan Lay Theng (1710 Cohort Lead) to guide you till graduation. Please take your time to go through the newsletter to recap exciting past events, such as the recent overseas trip to Thailand, DEEE Appreciation Day and our inaugural DEEE Graduation Night. Our lecturers have also worked hard to achieve significant research findings and secure MOU with key industry partner Signify (f.k.a Philips Lightings).

For those who are worried on career prospects, fear not when you see the positive response from our Micron Recruitment Day. In this issue, we are also glad to have our alumni Mei Shan to share with you her current NTU life. Do go through her column. Coming 6 May, we will celebrate the graduation of your seniors. Say “hi” to our top graduate Lim Jinrong, who is an army Warrant Officer (regular). Make friends with him and maybe you will have less “tekan”

when you enlist in the army (of course, this applies to our Singaporean boys).

Get-to-know your Senior Kua Meisan, DEEE Class of 2017 Student at Nanyang Technological University Q: What course are you currently taking in NTU? I’m currently pursuing my bachelor degree at School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Q: What are some of the things you have learnt in RP that have helped smoothen your transition to university life? Studying hard is not enough to achieve good academic performance in university. In NTU, there are quite a number of modules which require students to work with fellow classmates and accomplish the project objectives. Also, lecturers might not be as helpful as facilitators in RP since university students are expected to be more independent. In this case, building strong team environment and possessing critical thinking skills become very essential. I feel that RP's Problem Based Learning is a holistic pedagogy as it encourages students to develop long term knowledge retention while also giving us space to explore and foster a strong team spirit among the students. In RP’s everyday lesson, we work as a team, share the facts and ideas through discussion, tackle problems and complete tasks in a safe environment. Thus, I would say the most precious skills that I have gained in RP that smoothen the transition to university life are problem solving and communication skills.

42


Q: Of all the modules you had taken in RP, which module left the deepest impression in you? The module that attracted me the most was E116 Computer Programming. My facilitator for E116 was Ms Julie Loh. She is very dedicated, patient and always putting in a lot of effort to build caring relationships with students. For most of us, C programming was the first language that we learned. Thus, E116 is actually the first module that embarked us to the world of programming. I still remembered one of the mini projects for E116 titled ‘Blow Up’, where students were asked to design to uncover and locate areas in the sea that are safe for traffic to pass using C language. Any wrong codes could trigger a naval mine to explode and cause the mission to fail! And with the emergence of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligent, programming skills will become more even important as they shape the future world. Therefore, equipping ourselves with the different programming languages is crucial for us to stand out among others and I feel that RP has equipped me with the right foundation to pursue further in university.

43


Q: How was your internship experience when you were back in RP? I was so grateful to have the opportunity to work in Xilinx Asia Pacific during my 20-weeks RP Internship Immersion Programme (IIP). During my internship in Xilinx, I have gained a lot of knowledge about Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), understanding how it is produced, from the very beginning of wafer fabrication to the final product to customer. I acquired a lot of valuable hand-on work experience in a real industry environment. It cultivated strong work ethics in me and helped me to develop powerful career network. Ms Lim Chiew Yen, my RP internship supervisor, was always there for me throughout the internship. She gave me a lot of guidance and encouragement during my internship when I encountered difficulties at work. When I was searching for my university credit-based engineering internship, my prior working experience in Xilinx was favoured by a lot of engineering companies and because of that, I managed to get another valuable opportunity to intern in Huawei International Pte Ltd. Thus, my internship experience with Xilinx not only broadens my working experience, it also opens up more choices for my future job search.

Q: Any advice(s) for your juniors aspiring to pursue further studies in universities? Studying in polytechnic and university is a different level of ball game. However, possessing positive attitude in learning will still bring you a long way in university. During your time in RP, I would advise to build strong foundation in learning by attending every lesson, involving yourself in every discussion, consolidate and summarize study notes for every modules after the class. Do not accumulate everything to last minute; make it a habit as it will help you a lot in your future academic journey. Sometimes, you may feel lot of uncertainties along the way of pursuing your diploma, but always try your best and aim for better grades in your tests because grades not only indicate your understanding on the modules, they also show the level of self-discipline you have. Last but not least, if you have clear academic interest on certain engineering domains, do not be afraid to apply for university admission. With great effort, nothing is impossible. Good luck and all the best!
