DMRO Students in World Solar Car Challenge
SunSpec4 Cruiser

DMRO students were part of the SP team who designed and built the SunSpec4 Cruiser Class Solar Car for the World Solar Car Challenge in Australia in 2015. This is a bi-yearly competition and a premier solar car race in the world. Teams raced 3000 km from Darwin to Adelaide through the Australian outback. The vehicle is designed with a nominal stored energy of 5KWh and the rest of the energy harvested from the sun or recovered from the kinetic energy of the vehicle. The team travelled from 8 am till 5 pm each day and make camp when they stop for the day. This is one of many adventures that DMRO students will enjoy in the course.

Proving Her Abilities In Mechatronics

In Berita Harian's, 3 May 2016 article on "Excellent Singapore Polytechnic Graduates", Nur Irza Tutty Roslan from the Diploma in Mechatronics and Robotics (DMRO) course, was one of the featured graduand.

She shared how the DMRO course was not her first choice and how she did not enjoy her studies initially. However, with the help of the course curriculum and nurturing lecturers like her course chair Mr Ho Sum Lim, she began to discover her confidence and passion for engineering. She subsequently interned at SICK Pte Ltd where she developed a series of sensors as part of her project. Her work was praised by her lecturer and supervisors and the company offered her an engineering job before her graduation.

Irza has taken up the job offer and will be going to Germany for training before starting her new job.
