Rapid urbanisation presents both opportunities and challenges to society. Civil engineers stand at the crossroads and dream of the possibilities that lie ahead. At NTU CEE, you get to build the foundations necessary to be a part of this. Here, future engineers are developed to be adaptable and creative problem solvers. The academically rigorous curriculum has honed my engineering competencies while broadening my worldview. Through internships, research projects, global exposure, and personal development, I have had no shortage of avenues to learn outside the classroom. Most importantly, I take pride in the tightly knit community students have with faculty and staff.

What made you pursue this career?
I am currently a Structural Engineer in DP Engineers Pte Ltd, an engineering consultancy firm. My role is to undertake structural analysis, calculations and prepare design sketches and drawings indicating the design intent for building projects. This includes ensuring that the design intent meet the relevant design codes, requirements, regulations, and client’s expectations. My job also requires me to prepare the technical reports documenting the analysis and design results for authority submissions and subsequent correspondences.
As a design consultant, I work with different stakeholders (e.g., architects, mechanical and electrical engineers, contractors, etc.) to ensure a well-coordinated, smooth and safe delivery of project to the client. My job is satisfying as I get to see my design turns into reality on the ground where people get to work, study and live in. It is a rewarding job knowing that I can play a part in shaping the landscape of Singapore.
NTU Civil Engineering programme covers a wide range of civil engineering fields, ranging from Structural Engineering to Geotechnical Engineering, to Transportation Engineering and Environmental Engineering. This allows graduates to embark into their interested field of civil engineering upon graduation. The contents covered in NTU Civil Engineering are practical and relevant to the real-life applications. I get to apply the knowledge and skills that I have acquired into practical uses in my job as a design engineer.
The best memories of my time in NTU Civil Engineering would be the friendships that I have made at NTU. The times where we studied and worked on projects together, to joining various activities to have fun in. Even after we have graduated and joined various sectors of the Built Environment industry (e.g., government agencies, developers, consultants, contractors), we remain in close contact with each other.To potential applicants, a career in the Built Environment Industry is not dull but exciting and fulfilling. Do reach out to the professors, staffs, and seniors in NTU CEE to find out more about the course. To existing students, never stop learning and continue to expand your knowledge and skills through various avenues such as internships, seminar events, workshops, and webinars. See you around in the Built Environment industry!
