YOUNG ENGINEER AWARD (YEA)

This award is ONLY exclusive in Singapore Polytechnic, School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering (EEE)

The objective of YEA is to create a platform for secondary school students:

  1. To appreciate the link between science and engineering.
  2. To self-discover and arouse their interest and curiosity in Science & Engineering.
  3. To allow outstanding youths who have displayed a passion for STEM, in particular, Engineering, to be recognized.
  4. To spot talents in engineering and attract them to join engineering courses at Singapore Polytechnic (SP).

YEA Certification

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed between Science Centre Singapore and Singapore Polytechnic in 2016 and renewed in 2019, to incorporate YEA certification into STEM Inc Applied Learning Programme (ALP). YEA certification is administered by School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering (EEE).

Changes to Young Engineer Award (YEA)

The changes are effective from 1st Oct 2019.

Previously, there were 3 levels of awards, namely Gold, Silver and Bronze. With the changes the number of levels will be simplified to two, namely YEA (Applied Learning) and YEA (Achievement).

YEA (Applied Learning)

With the changes, students who have completed their Secondary 1 and 2 STEM ALP – Tier 1 programmes, with a minimum of 70% attendance, can apply for the YEA (Applied Learning) award.

Students who have completed only either their Secondary 1 or Sec 2 STEM ALP Tier 1 will not be eligible for the YEA (Applied Learning) award.

YEA (Achievement)YEA _Achievement

With the changes, YEA (Achievement) is a stand-alone award, i.e. students need not have been awarded the YEA (Applied Learning) in order to attain the YEA (Achievement).

Only outstanding students of each Tier 2 competition/programme organized by SP and Science Centre Singapore (SCS) will be considered for the YEA (Achievement) award.

A new pathway to attain the YEA (Achievement) award, based on the School Principal’s recommendation, will be introduced. Each school can nominate up to 3 students for the YEA (Achievement) award each year. Nominated students should be sitting for their O-Levels in the year following the application, and have expressed interest to apply for SP-EEE courses through the EAE pathway.
