11 May 2017
Stomp, 10 May 2017 - Article featured Diploma in Computer Engineering graduate and Institutional Medallist, Benedict Lee Wei Zheng. Benedict had already successfully built his own computer from scavenged parts when he was a Secondary One student. When he served in the SP School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering club, he used his electrical engineering and programming skills to repair discarded laptops for less fortunate students, and installed solar panels at home to save on electrical bills and promote environmental friendliness. The recipient of the Defence Science Organisation (DSO) Diploma Scholarship also completed a six-week internship at the DSO National Laboratories, where he was involved in research projects related to computer network systems and cybersecurity. Benedict will be pursuing a Degree in Computer Engineering at the Nanyang Technological University after serving his national service. COMMS note: This is part of our Graduation 2017 stories.
