Since 2002, students from the School of EEE, together with their peers from other Schools in the polytechnic, have undertaken overseas community service each year.
EEE students have worked on overseas community service in countries like China and the Philippines. Some of the projects that they have completed include building a biogas tank, a children's playground, homes for the less fortunate, construction of streetlights, as well as roofing and electrical wiring of homes for the poor.
The students not only have the opportunity to practise the SPCORE values of Self discipline, Personal integrity, Care & Concern, Openness, Responsibility and Excellence, they are also able to put their skills to benefit the less fortunate and deserving members of society outside of Singapore. This way, they also learn and appreciate the different cultures and languages, and broaden their perspectives in life and expand their horizons.
