Under the Tertiary Level, a group of students from the Diploma in Environmental Management and Water Technology won a Commendation Award at the Award Presentation Ceremony on 13 Feb 2014. The winners received the prize from Mr Lawrence Wong, Acting Minister for Culture Community and Youth and Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Communications and Information.
