School of Materials Science and Engineering
B.A.Sc. / Class of 1999


For her dedicated service and commitment to the community, Nanyang Technological University is proud to present Ms Chan Wei Ling Cheryl with the Nanyang Outstanding Young Alumni Award.

Ms Chan was elected last September as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Fengshan single-member constituency, having been unveiled as the People’s Action Party (PAP) candidate on 27 August 2015. The causes dear to her heart are the elderly and children from less privileged backgrounds. New to politics, she is nonetheless a familiar face with her constituents, having started volunteering 10 years earlier. Then, having written to the PAP to ask how she could serve, the party suggested that she help out in the Fengshan area since she was a resident there.

She joined the grassroots organisation in Fengshan, where she served in the Neighbourhood Committee and Youth Executive Committee. She also lent her support to Meet-the-People sessions and house visits. Later, in 2012, she was appointed Chair of the Fengshan Community Club Management Committee and became a member of the Citizen’s Consultative Committee and East Coast Town Council.

Aside from her role as an MP, Ms Chan enjoys a successful career with gas and engineering firm The Linde Group as its Head of Secondary Industries (Corporate Strategy & Market Intelligence). She joined the company in 2007 and has previously held management positions on market development, product portfolio development and supply chain operations in its electronics sector. Prior to joining Linde, she was with Kulicke & Soffa, a global leader in the design and manufacture of semiconductor, LED and electronic assembly equipment.

A proud graduate of NTU, she is keen to pay it forward and returned to her alma mater in July to be the Convocation Speaker for the School of Materials Science and Engineering. Over the years, Ms Chan has also donated to NTU’s iGave programme, in particular for the Ma Jan Memorial Fund and the Alumni Fund.

Currently, Ms Chan is also the PAP Women’s Wing Deputy District Advisor (South East), East Coast-Fengshan Town Council Executive Committee Vice Chairman, and a member of the Public Petitions Committee.

For her contributions to Singapore society, Ms Chan was honoured with the Pingat Bakti Masyarakat (Public Service Medal) in 2013.

陈慧玲女士多年来积极投身社区服务,为表彰她尽心尽力服务群众的精神,南洋理工大学特此授予南洋杰出青年校友奖。

陈女士于2015年8月27日获推举代表人民行动党在全国大选中竞选凤山单选区国会议席,而后成功胜选,同年9月正式出任凤山区国会议员。年长者和弱势家庭孩童,是她特别关心的两个社群。陈女士虽初入政坛,却是凤山区居民再熟悉不过的一张面孔,早在十年前她主动致函人民行动党表达自己要为社区服务的心愿,行动党当时建议她到自己居住的凤山区基层组织帮忙,因此这位新任议员在凤山区服务已有整整十年光景。

这些年来,她曾在凤山区居民委员会以及青年执行委员会志愿服务,也帮忙区内议员处理会见选民以及沿户拜访居民的事务。2012年,她受委担任凤山民众俱乐部管理委员会主席,也兼任公民咨询委员会以及东海岸市镇理事会的委员。

陈女士在自己的事业上同样身兼数职,却也都游刃有余。国会议员公职之外,她也同时担任气体能源与工程公司林德集团(The Linde Group)第二产业(企业战略规划及市场情报)主管。她于2007年加入林德集团,曾在市场开发、产品组合开发,以及集团旗下电机部门的供应链营运等不同部门担任管理层职务。在这之前,她曾在库力索法(Kulicke & Soffa)公司任职,该公司是世界领先半导体、照明LED以及电机组装器材的设计与制造商。

陈女士以身为南大校友感到自豪,以各种方式积极回馈母校。今年7月,她义不容辞担任材料科学与工程学院毕业典礼上的主讲嘉宾。这些年来她也经常捐款支持南大iGave捐赠计划,捐款支持“马元教授纪念基金”以及校友基金。

陈女士目前担任人民行动党妇女团副区域顾问(东南区)、东海岸-凤山市镇理事会执行委员会副主席,以及国会公众请愿委员会成员。

她对社会作出的积极贡献也获得国家认可和表扬,于2013年获颁公共服务奖章。
