Our EAE Graduate

chui how yee dmro eae

Hi, How Yee here! Welcome to MAE (Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering)! I am so excited to know that you are interested in applying for DMRO (Diploma in Mechatronics & Robotics) via EAE. I’m sure you have questions with regards to how to better prepare yourself for the interview. Well, who’s the best person to advise other than the one who has gone through this route himself. Before I give you some insider tips, just want to share that it’s important to discover your passion.

Me and robot i am working on

For me, applying to Singapore Polytechnic DMRO course is only natural for me. From young, my interest was sparked when I joined my primary school’s (Innova Primary School) robotics club. This interest developed into a passion I could pursue it further by entering secondary school (Woodlands Ring Secondary School) via DAE (Direct School Admission).

When I discovered that I could have the opportunity to secure a place in the course I believe will expand my passion before the national exams, I set my mind to apply for DMRO EAE. During the course of study, DMRO provided me with the learning and training opportunities to put my passion into real world applications exploring innovative solutions to improve the way we live. As I continue to pursue my passion in mechatronics & robotics, I will always remember what the course has inculcated in all of us: In DMRO, we don’t just dream, we turn dreams into reality!
