Wang Yu TingDiploma in Landscape Architecture
Class of 2022
My experience in ABE extended far beyond the classroom. I was exposed to a myriad of experiences both in and out of the Landscape Architectural industry and received a hands-on learning experience that suited me perfectly.
In my final year
I worked on the Community Sensing Project for Somerset Belt, a collaboration with Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY) and the National Youth Council. My group designed a landscape element to engage youths called TUG Wall, using recycled
pallets and glow-in-the-dark elements. The prototype was built and displayed at Youth Park. I was able to present our design and observation phases to our clients. An introduction to our project was even published in the Straits Times.
also got to serve in the planning committee for Youth Model ASEAN Conference 2020 (YMAC), a five-day online event for students from across Southeast Asia. My team and I hosted team-bonding and ice-breaker games, where I was able to meet and make friends
with students from across Southeast Asia as well as SP students from other schools.
I interned at a landscape architecture consultancy firm named Coopers Hill, where I created 2D and 3D graphics including landscape layout and section plans,
as well as 3D models and diagrams. I worked from home and interacted with my colleagues, locally and overseas, and received guidance from my supervisor via an online platform. I worked on overseas projects, where the landscapes were mountainous and
at a larger scale than what I experienced in class.
Under Singapore Polytechnic Outstanding Talent (SPOT) Programme, I joined the KidsRead Programme as a teacher for four- to six-year-olds from lower income families. We conducted weekly
online reading and activity sessions to improve their reading abilities.
All these activities have made my time in SP meaningful and memorable.
