2018 NUS Engineering Awards Ceremony – A day of firsts!

The awardees with NUS Dean of Engineering, Prof Chua Kee Chaing, at the 2018 NUS Engineering Awards Ceremony

TODAY, Dean Chua Kee Chaing presented awards for research, teaching and service excellence to Engineering faculty members at the Faculty’s Awards Ceremony. As benefitting the no-nonsense practical engineers they all are, the event was not a glitzy formal affair but a time to congratulate colleagues, and share in their achievements.

This was the first time the NUS Engineering Service Award was presented – to Professor Victor Shim – who had served 10 years as Vice-Dean External Relations and Outreach for the Faculty. He now serves the University as its Associate Vice President for the Global Relations Office.

Also a first for the Faculty was that the Innovative Teaching Award (Gold) went to a team of faculty members and not an individual. The team from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, and the Mechanical Engineering Department, had worked for a year to develop and implement the Engineering Principles and Practice Programme for first-year students, recognised as the Faculty’s emphasis on experiential learning for all Engineering freshmen.

Associate Professor Ashwin Khambadkone, Director of the NUS Global Engineering Programme, a member of the team, highlighted the commitment all members had given to the development of the programme – a project that had drawn resources from two departments. The event ended on a high note with Assoc Prof Ashwin sending out a resounding call that this “virus of learning” would spread like wildfire throughout the Faculty; a wish that was certainly supported by all present.
