The annual NUS Engineering Alumni Gala Dinner was held at the Kent Ridge Guild House on 19 October 2018. About 300 guests attended the Dinner; it was an occasion to renew ties and to celebrate the achievements and services of our alumni – Mr Gan Seow Kee, Chairman and Managing Director of ExxonMobil Asia Pacific Pte Ltd (Industrial Systems and Engineering, Class of 1976) and Er. Lim Peng Hong, Managing Director of PH Consulting Pte Ltd (Civil Engineering, Class of 1983) – who received the Distinguished Engineering Alumni Award (DEAA).

The Alumni Gala Dinner also recognised the generosity of our alumni which resulted in the establishment of four new bursaries, two new scholarships, as well as a study trip for selected students to China. Apart from the monetary contributions, the alumni also volunteered their time to mentor students in the Faculty’s Alumni Mentorship Programme, which piloted in August this year. The 2018 cohort of Engineering graduates were not far behind in their efforts to give and change the lives of their juniors in financial needs. They achieved the highest participation rate in this year’s Commencement Class Giving 2018, raising more than $22,000.
