"The three years spent in Singapore Polytechnic were definitely an unforgettable experience and I felt that SP Chemical Engineering was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. With the course's recognised and rigorous curriculum, I have learnt how to handle stress to meet tight deadlines and manage my time more wisely. The many projects and presentations helped to simulate the real-life working environment. They have also helped me improve my communication skills and made me a better team player."
