Our current Year 3 DME student, Omer Bin Basil Ali Omer Uqba, has been appointed by Energy Market Authority (EMA) as Energy Ambassador. The news is featured on a local newspaper and the link to the news article is shown below:


Launched in 2018, the EAP is part of the Energy Market Authority (EMA)’s efforts to nurture youths who are passionate about energy-related issues and are keen to contribute to the energy sector. Appointed ambassadors will serve a term of two years.

The EAP is open to Singaporeans currently studying at local Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs). They would also need to meet the following criteria: • Possess a strong passion for the energy sector and have a keen interest in joining the sector after graduation • Demonstrate strong communication skills • Preferably pursuing or intending to pursue relevant engineering courses. 

As part of their two-year term, Energy Ambassadors can look forward to participating and serving as advocates in a series of sector-wide outreach events, which are organised to share the latest developments in the energy sector with students. These events include Youth@SIEW (youth segment of Singapore International Energy Week) and Powering Lives Trails (learning journeys). (See Annex B for examples of these activities and events under the EAP.) 6 In addition, Energy Ambassadors will be invited to attend training sessions conducted by EMA to deepen their understanding of the energy sector. They can also kick-start activities to engage their peers on energy-related issues, such as organising energy events within their schools or initiating energy projects based on their areas of interest. 7 Through this programme, Energy Ambassadors can also expect to: • Receive opportunities to network with industry leaders in the energy sector through closed-door events; • Gain insights into the developments of the energy sector including emerging trends and technologies; and • Enjoy a head-start in finding out if the energy sector could be their choice career.
