DIRECTOR'S WELCOME

To our first year students, congratulations on being accepted into SP’s School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (SEEE), one of Singapore’s premier schools for engineering education. This is a significant chapter in your life as you are transiting from secondary to tertiary education and have chosen to join one of our six diploma courses that are well recognised by the industry as well as both local and overseas universities.

For second and third year students, welcome back to a fresh new year!

The school believes in helping you discover, release and maximize your potential; excite and satisfy your curiosity about how things work; guide you to your interest-driven choice to learn; and nurture your ability to learn how to learn. It is committed to your holistic growth with us and, through its flexible and inclusive curricular and co-curricular learning opportunities, to seeing each individual collectively shaped and developed into an inspired learner with holistic perspectives, one with strong engineering knowledge and skills to serve with mastery, and also care for the community.

I encourage you to adopt a positive learning mind-set and develop, with passion, deep skills and mastery in engineering. With pedagogies like the CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement and Operate) framework and Design Thinking, you will be trained in how to solve real-life engineering problems, enhance your ability to speak with confidence and think critically while working well with others.

SEEE’s strong collaboration with relevant industries has ensured that up-to-date equipment and facilities are in place to support the teaching and learning of fast emerging engineering disciplines. We have also introduced pathways such as Electives, Specialisation, Enhanced Internship, Engineering Academy and ACE programmes within our course for you to challenge and develop yourselves further according to your interests.

To broaden your horizons, I hope that you would also explore learning beyond the classroom by being involved in various activities such as sports, arts, overseas learning trips, makers’ activities and service to the community. Through such activities, you would get to interact and bond with your fellow schoolmates, and develop valuable social, interpersonal and leadership skills.

For our newbies, this new transition may seem daunting and exciting just as it is also challenging and empowering. Do not worry. You will have dedicated lecturers to journey with you throughout the 3 years in SEEE. The desired outcome, in the essence of SkillsFuture, is seeing you better prepared to be life ready, work ready and world ready, and enabling you to stay resilient in the face of an ever-changing future. I invite you to embark on this mission with your lecturers and peers as the school aims to nurture curious minds and produce passionate engineers – a journey to bring each of you from Potential to Fulfilment. I wish you every success and I am confident that you will find your journey in SP an immensely rewarding experience.

Thank you.
