NUS Engineering, especially its Civil and Structural Engineering programme, has done Singapore very proud by being highly regarded worldwide as the top university n Asia and also within top 3 in world rankings. For many years, Surbana Jurong (SJ) has looked to NUS Civil and Environmental Engineering as a precious resource base for fresh graduates and post-graduates to boost
and refresh our engineering talent pool. As SJ scales up its size and operations significantly, we will continue to warmly welcome NUS Engineering graduates and post-graduates to join our company and be a part of our mission of building cities and shaping lives. Over the years, we have found the NUS Civil and Environmental Engineering graduates who have joined our SJ family to be fundamentally well grounded, industry-ready, motivated, adaptable, always keen to learn and able to contribute.

Given competition from other sectors, hiring quality engineers is a challenge for any company. NUS Electrical and Computer Engineering is producing quality engineering students and graduates. I think looking forward, these NUS Electrical and Computer Engineering graduates will be able to fulfill the industrial needs of Singapore.
The march of technology and how it impacts human society is very strongly entwined in how software and hardware work together seamlessly. And for that, a strong and rigourous understanding of both realms is fundamental. The NUS Computer Engineering programme is unique with its rigour in combining computer science and electrical engineering, and prepares graduates to contribute towards realising and innovating in a device and computational rich and connected world.
Engineering Science Programme graduates from NUS Engineering are creative and innovative, and have shown themselves to be willing to take up challenging tasks and solve problems.
NUS Engineering graduates are able to see the issues holistically and come up with practical solutions to all engineering challenges. They are very adaptable and are fast learners. They are built on strong engineering foundations with good grasp of engineering concepts.
NUH Nursing has been privileged to have been able to work with students from NUS Industrial Systems & Engineering for a project to streamline the medication administration process. Although they did not have prior exposure in a healthcare setting, the students stepped up well to the challenge, especially in developing a clear understanding of the established standards and issues, as well as defining very relevant root causes to develop plausible solutions.
Hewlett-Packard Singapore seeks alternative materials to enhance our product offering and efficiency, for instance, reengineering of the material set used in our product is critical for successful transition. In addition, identifying new materials typically leads to better experience for our customers, as well as driving innovation of new products that will help enhance our customer offerings. Our company recently hired some NUS Materials Science & Engineering graduates. With their underlying knowledge of materials and training in fundamental engineering application, the graduates provide a refreshed approach on how we qualify changes, and manage change risk, vis a vis time to market and product quality. Contributions of the NUS Materials Science & Engineering graduates in our organisation are critical, as we continue to expand and grow our business.
I would like to congratulate the student team for a job well done in developing a hands-free solution in facilitating our machinists to set-up production parts onto machines without physical contact, which has been implemented immediately as part of our work safety and injury prevention initiatives. The team had demonstrated enthusiasm, engagement, determination and commitment throughout the project, and we are very pleased and impressed with the professionalism and high quality work presented. I am sure they had a fruitful learning experience while working with our Manufacturing Engineering team.
