Ms Rajakumar Amritha, since young, has understood the importance of Engineers in solving problems in a practical way to benefit the society. She joined the Electrical Engineering Course in NUS having followed the footsteps of parents who are both Engineers. 22 year old Amritha excelled in her course and graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical Engineering) with Honours (Highest Distinction).
To get more students excited about engineering and stay in the profession, NUS is revamping its engineering curriculum from this year to focus more on providing diverse pathways and hands-on work. Two new specialisation tracks will be offered — research and development, where students can take postgraduate modules and intern at research laboratories and institutes; and design and innovation, where they can work at start-ups and explore entrepreneurship opportunities in engineering.
Aaron Voon-Yew Thean is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National University of Singapore. He is also a consulting Fellow to IMEC, a Nano-electronic Research Center, based in Belgium.
B.Eng. (Electrical Engineering) students are able to specialize in almost any area of Electrical and Computer Engineering because the academic and research staff members of the ECE Department are actively engaged in research activities encompassing a wide range of topics.
Industry talks were organized by the Student Life section of the department. Talks with these companies, such as DSO National Laboratories, Inphi Corporation, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited, Institute for Infocomm Research- A*Star, Open Compute Project for Facebook, FMC Technologies, Schneider Electric, SEMI South East Asia, SIA Engineering Company and ST Electronics (Satellite system), occurred though out the academic year.
