"My research experience at the University of Sydney was meaningful and enriching. I was able to learn from a team of experienced researchers about inclusive disaster risk reduction and was exposed to international case studies that the team had conducted. The time at Sydney was also insightful as I was able to learn new research methodologies from their past studies and apply it to my own project. Living in Sydney was a blissful experience, with coastal sceneries, pleasant weather, coupled with a strong culture of good work-life balance."
"Being able to do my FYP at Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute has been an enriching experience. As a Mechanical Engineering major, the nature of work being conducted in the Dolan Lab was new to me, with much focus on the perception, motion planning, and behaviour of autonomous vehicles. I was encouraged and pushed to develop new skills, and had the opportunity to interact with and learn from students and researchers who were highly passionate about their field of research. Being at CMU also gave me the chance to attend many interesting seminars from CMU and visiting faculty, which gave me a broader perspective about current topics in Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. I am grateful to NTU and the CN Yang Scholars Programme for making OFYP possible."
"I was glad to work in an exciting and vibrant research group led by Professor Jonathan Kelly from the University of Toronto. The Space and Terrestrial Autonomous Robotics Laboratory, or STARS, for short, focuses on research spanning robotics, computer vision and artificial intelligence. I got to live the full PhD experience - journal reading, group meetings, bar nights, presentations - you name it. My research entitled "Semantic Mapping for Articulated Objects" was also interesting as it combined fields from computer vision and machine learning, allowing me to keep in touch with the state-of-the-art research. I found Canada to be a thriving place for research - often attracting many students internationally for undergraduate and graduate studies alike. It is definitely an experience to remember, and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity for this overseas research experience."
"My research experience at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, was fruitful and enriching. My laboratory consisted of people from different countries with different technical background, which led to intercultural exchange and gaining of much useful knowledge. Apart from the lab, the weekly seminars focusing on new research tools and findings were very interesting and kept me up to date about existing technology and innovation. Lastly, Vancouver is rewarded with beautiful nature and weather, and although expensive, is enjoyable to live in. Vancouverites were generally helpful and friendly, and this overseas experience allowed me to make many friends who are from other countries."
"My research experience at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute has been a really enriching and fulfilling one. Working under the supervision of one of the scientists behind Tartan Racing’s DARPA urban challenge win, mentored by a PhD candidate working in General Motors’ motion planning development team and being surrounded by researchers tackling the most challenging problems at the forefront of the autonomous driving research made for a very productive learning and working environment. Living in Pittsburgh, the home of self-driving companies, has also exposed me to the state and culture of the industry and allowed me to expand my connections."
"This internship opportunity at CMCL Innovations broadened my perspective on the application of theoretical concepts of chemical engineering such as reaction engineering and unit operations. Concepts were applied to operations such as chemical vapour deposition and engines – not traditionally associated with chemical engineering, allowing me to think out of the box. All these projects were completed with the aid of the software developed by CMCL Innovations – the kinetics-SRM Suite and MoDS. The opportunity also allowed me to learn the application of chemical engineering from my colleagues. In all, this experience has prepared me better for my career ahead."
"Conducting my FYP with the Physics department of UCL has been enriching in many ways. I had the chance to be exposed to foreign research culture and to work in fields of research beyond the scope of NTU, allowing me to engage in Particle Physics. It was very inspiring to learn from renowned researchers at the top of the field and be working in an environment with people whose passion for physics were infectious. Through this project, I have experienced the joy of research and have gained an incredible amount that I could not possibly quantify. For that, I am extremely grateful to CNYSP for giving me this priceless educational experience."
"It was a very energising and enriching experience to conduct my overseas FYP at Oxford, a beautiful city with a strong research culture. I learnt a great amount from interacting with talented and passionate colleagues, picking up both practical and theoretical knowledge. With the support of Professor Dixon and other mentors, my work in the lab was fruitful and enjoyable. The overseas project has been very valuable for my development as a scientist, and I am grateful to the CN Yang Scholars Programme for making it possible."
"Conducting my FYP at the University of Bath under Professor Frank Marken was a memorable and enriching experience. From the overseas research project, I acquired technical knowledge and hands-on experience in electrochemical research, an area which I am interested in. It was also exciting and eye-opening to participate in my first conference. The strong support offered by my supervisor and my fellow laboratory mates and the cohesive lab culture were integral in making my stay in Bath so fun and enjoyable. In retrospect, this FYP has been one of my best experiences so far."
"Conducting my overseas FYP at Imperial College London has been an absolutely eye-opening experience. Working with Prof Hii and her group has given me an entirely new perspective and added much vigour to my passion for knowledge. London, with its vibrancy and deep history, makes for an exciting place to live and work in, as well as to grow as an individual and as a researcher. I’m thankful to CN Yang Scholars Programme and NTU for their support for this deeply meaningful trip that I have gained so much from."
"As a Physics student who intends to specialize in medical physics, the proton therapy project at the Paul Scherrer Institute truly excites me. I am involved in the development of a new superconducting gantry for its proton therapy facility. Within the 6-month duration of my project, I was allowed to interact with different groups of people, including the magnet group, the accelerator group, and the treatment planning group. The vibrant and friendly research experience here has taught me many valuable lessons that hopefully I could apply to the development of a proton therapy centre in Singapore."
"I was a part of the MoEDAL experiment at CERN for my Final Year Project. The primary focus of MoEDAL was the monopole. My work with MoEDAL involved the analysis of Monopole Data collected from experiments, making new models to predict the production of monopoles, the analysis of the Nuclear Track Detectors at MoEDAL and machine learning coupled with citizen science. In summary, it was an extremely fulling trip and my first foray into experimental and theoretical physics and I hope to continue this research."
"I jumped at the opportunity to embark on another overseas experience with the support of the CNYSP Office, and since I had already lived in Europe, I set my sights on the United States and decided to find a project there. The University of Michigan was an amazing place to be; some of the best engineering research in the country gets accomplished there and the cosiness of Ann Arbor (one of the best college towns) was a great peek into life in the USA. My research on workstation simulation in military vehicles let me learn so much, especially with the help of my mentor, Dr Matthew Reed. It was a wonderful way to end off my university life, and I am forever grateful to the CNYSP Office for the chance."
"It is a privilege for me to join Professor Tom Brown's research group, experience rigorous interdisciplinary research and gain from the expertise of the researchers. I have personally experienced that research has no boundaries; both conceptually and physically."
"CNYSP has given me the opportunity to visit the University of Waterloo to pursue my interest in gravitational physics, where I work directly with experts in the field. Having people with the right expertise really makes learning the subject a lot easier and pushing boundaries become possible."
