Recognising Our Stars: Non-Academic Achievements
The NUS Students' Engineering Club would like to show appreciation for the below NUS Faculty of Engineering (FoE) students who have represented FoE in recognized competitions or events under the jurisdiction of NUS and/or external organizations from academic year 16/17 onwards:
1. FoE Inter-Faculty Games (IFG) Tennis Team
The IFG Tennis Team has trained hard and fought even harder during the matches this year to claim first place despite having faced tough matches against the Faculty of Business and Faculty of Medicine.
2. Team Smiley
Team Smiley is comprised of a group of final year FoE students (third year engineering student, Lim Yong Zhi; and fourth year mechanical and electrical engineering students Chan Wai Yang, Jiao Yang, Huang Shi Yang) who recently participated in the Project Arduino Competition organised by Thales last year. They have already gone through the initial stages of the competition and emerged to represent Singapore as one of the seven regions which are participating in the competition: France, UK, USA, Netherlands, China and Hong Kong.
Team Smiley is currently seeking votes to emerge as global winners. The top three videos with the most votes will be put before a jury of Thales experts to decide who will win a trip to a Thales Research Centre in one of the regions participating and who will be crown global winners of Project Arduino 2016/17!
Feel free to read their featured article on CIO-Asia/ComputerWorld Singapore digital article at http://www.cio-asia.com/tech/industries/nus-students-develop-a-pressure-sensitive-keypad-to-bolster-atm-security-in-singapore/ and have the post shared on NUS Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/nus.singapore/posts/10154792894578540. For more information regarding this competition or you would like to cast a vote for Team Smiley, please head to https://www.thalesgroup.com/en/careers/news/project-arduino-201617-has-launched.
The NUS Students' Engineering Club would like to applaud these students once again and hope that by giving recognition to these students and/or teams, it will inspire fellow NUS FoE students (YOU!) to do the same by stepping out to represent FoE and to take pride in our faculty!
