Hi, I'm Wu Junde. My experience in DME (diploma in mechanical engineering) has been extremely fruitful, albeit long and arduous. Considering the fact that I spent most of my time dabbling around with my mountain bike, I undoubtedly got involved in bike maintenance. Choosing DME was an obvious choice, as I was awestruck by how all the components of my bike assemble so smoothly into an ingenious engineering device that manages to bring both convenience and fun into our lives.

After discovering that I could apply to DME through EAE, I was determined to secure a place that allowed me to gain additional knowledge in such a diverse field. During my course of study I learnt the basics of Mechanical Engineering. Additionally, I was also given the opportunity to compete in WorldSkills Singapore 2020 in the trade CNC Turning. To my surprise, I clinched second place (Silver medal) in such a prestigious competition. However, that was not the main takeaway. I was exposed to the specifics of how parts are manufactured to such precision for each individual component to be assembled together — a topic I have longed to research.

The lecturers were also friendly and provided immense help. They were always there to clear my doubts and constantly push me when they knew that there was room for improvement.

Some tips for EAE interview:

Visit the SP website and research more on what are the modules that you will be taking, and the 6 specializations that are offered by the course. Doing this beforehand made me even more interested and excited for the course to start where I would then be able to apply the knowledge acquired into my daily life.

Show them your experience. Do not be afraid to geek out. Talk about the projects that you have done or better yet, bring them along for the interview which allows you to show us what you are talented or interested in.

Talk about what you plan to do after entering or completing the course. What dream company are you planning to get a spot in? What course are you aiming to further your studies in? What is your drive to be an engineer?

Show your passion and prepare well for the DME EAE interview.

I wish you all the best for your EAE application!
