Evolution of the Engineering Career
20th November 2020, 11:00am - 12:00pm
Ms Lynette Tan, Singapore Space & Technology Limited
The space tech sector is evolving but working in the space tech sector is not definitely not without challenges.
Lynette will give a brief overview of the space tech sector, current trends and what upcoming graduates could expect and immediate programmes they can take part in.
Mr B K Oberoi, Discobrakes.com Pte Ltd
My Engineering Career evolved over 50 years and I will share my experience with you. The Engineering career goes hand in hand with tools used. Engineers invent and make the inventions. Of necessity these need new tools and skills. This cycle of inventing, making and acquiring new skills drives the Engineering Career. My real life examples will show how I progressed from using slide rules to computers, digital simulation and robotics. Continuous Professional Development is key to gain new skills and exploit them. My secrets will be revealed so join me.
Mr Siew Seng Yeow, Building and Construction Authority (BCA)

Centuries ago, there was no definition of “Engineer”. Decades ago, the definition of “engineer” was, at best, inaccurate. Today, engineers practise in more fields than ever before with high level of expertise. We now have more faith in engineering as we believe that anything can be engineered and any problem can be solved. However, we are often too focus on the end results and neglected the people behind the works.

In this fast changing world, engineering career has also evolved rapidly. Coupled with the advancement in technology, we can look at how some of the changes in engineering as a career and unveils opportunities where technologies can complement the way new engineering works. Join us in this workshop to feel the power of engineering as a career option.

 

 

 
The Future of Singapore’s Energy Story

In particular, we will explore how Singapore could leverage on emerging low-carbon energy technologies to address future challenges.

 

 

 
Radiation: The key to food security?
Prof Chung Keng Yeow, Singapore Nuclear Research and Safety Initiative (SNRSI)
20th November 2020, 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Radiation has many applications in agriculture, such as food irradiation, plant breeding, radioactive tracers to track plant nutrient uptake, etc. It is a technology that has been tried, tested, and used to great success in many countries. With Singapore's 30-by-30 food production target, could this be one of the solutions for Singapore to explore? In this talk, we will provide a brief overview of the different ways radiation may be used in agriculture and the science behind it, and discuss their suitability for Singapore.
