Having lots of fun with LEGO blocks and joining Robotics Clubs when young, Wayne discovered he had a passion for learning and understanding how things would function. This hunger for technical curiosity lead Wayne to sign up for an engineering course in Singapore Polytechnic, namely, the Diploma in Mechatronics and Robotics.
At SP, Wayne was impressed by the facilities on campus and his favourite hangout in school is the Robotics Learning Space (W1421). Spending almost all of his time there in his final semester toiling away on a challenging Final Year Project, the company and assistance given by his lecturers and team mates made the whole experience a wonderful memory to cherish. This cooperative and communal culture of DMRO drives students to be intrinsically motivated.
As he looked back on his graduation day, Wayne realised how much he has grown with SP. Not just in his field of study but also in other areas of character development – joining the International Students’ Club provided him opportunities to expand his circle of friends beyond the classroom and beyond where he held dear of the fond memories he had with them.
To those who are still deciding whether or not to study engineering, this is what Wayne has to say: “If you are a practical and hands-on person, and if you like Physics, then this is definitely a good choice for you. Keep an open and curious mind, and you will be able to enjoy the years growing up and learning in Singapore Polytechnic.”
