Creating a Shinier World

I could have been enjoying eating mooncakes at home. Instead, I decided to do a good deed with my fellow NYP volunteers, and I was glad I did just that!

Project Clean-Up, which took place on 15th September, was an event organized by the Home Nursing Foundation (HNF). The objective of the exercise was to help the elderly patients who live independently but are physically unfit, and unable to manage their household chores.

How to obtain top-notch skills in Mechatronics

Worldskills Singapore, is a nation-wide skills competition for Singaporean youths who excel in a wide range of skills such as CNC milling, mobile robotics and web design. This year, the finals was held from 7 to 9 July 2016 at ITE Central and ITE College West. We saw students from the five polytechnics and ITE participating in the finals. I decided to interview two outstanding students from NYP who won the gold medal in the Mechatronics skill area.

The duo, Clarence Lim and Eljer Chua are final year students from the Diploma in Mechatronics Engineering. Their exceptional talent in Mechatronics have not only won them gold medals in Singapore, they were also selected to represent Singapore in the international-level WorldSkills Competition in Abu Dhabi next year!

Our Principal’s First Year in Nanyang Polytechnic

On 1 July 2015, we had our new Principal and CEO, Ms Jeanne Liew, take the helm at NYP. Time flies, and a year has since gone by. We decided to ask Ms Liew to share with us her most remarkable moments at NYP in this past year. Today, we are thrilled to present some of her thoughts on events, facilities, and achievements that would make you feel proud to be an NYPian.

Connecting Over a Movie

On the night of 8 July 2016, 125 NYP SIT students and alumni, and current members of the Singapore Computer Society (SCS) Student Chapter, turned up for Movie Fiesta Night at Golden Village, Suntec City to catch the movie Central Intelligence. The event was organised by the NYP SIT Club and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).

The Write Stuff was invited to cover the event, and together with my co-writer, Ritz Yeo, we had a great time. It was a great opportunity for the SCS Student Chapter and NYP SIT alumni to get to know each other better.
