2SINGAPORE POLYTECHNICANNUAL REPORT 2016/2017CHAIRMAN’SFOREWORD“SP will double ourefforts to become a polynot just for teenagers,but for all ages.”

SINGAPORE POLYTECHNICANNUAL REPORT 2016/2017Inearly 2017, the Committee On The FutureEconomy (CFE) outlined seven mutuallyreinforcing strategies for Singapore to stayahead in a challenging global environment.In the fast changing economic landscape,Singaporeans should have deep skills andbe inspired to learn throughout their lives.Businesses should be innovative and havestrong digital capabilities. Furthermore, ourcity should continue to be vibrant, everrenewing itself and well-connected to theworld. Against this backdrop, the Institutes ofHigher Learning (IHLs) are positioned to playan active role in driving and enabling a cultureof lifelong learning amongst Singaporeans.As a member of the CFE, I am heartened tosee Singapore Polytechnic (SP) undertakingmeasures in response to this initiative. Weheld an inaugural workplan seminar with thetheme “A Poly for All Ages” in April 2017.This is a statement not just of our aspirationto expand our student catchment beyondteenagers to include adults, but also about ourcommitment to stay relevant to Singapore’scontinual development. This theme not onlycharts the course for SP moving forward, butalso allows us to reflect on the efforts we hadtaken in the preceding 12 months in supportof lifelong learning.SUPPORTING LIFELONG LEARNINGIn the course of FY2016/2017, ourProfessional & Adult Continuing Education(PACE) Academy introduced more than 230Continuing Education and Training (CET)courses for working professionals or PMETs.To help them stay competitive in their jobsdespite busy schedules, PACE Academy hasrolled out 102 skills-based modular courseswhere there are some components whichcan be accessed online. This further allowsflexibility for them to learn without sitting inclass for these components. These coursesare specially customised to reskill or upskill sothat they are aligned to industry needs in areassuch as Cybersecurity, Business Managementand Biomedical Engineering. Credits earned inthese modular courses can be accumulated togain a full diploma qualification.Engineer Mohamed Johannes Wahid, who washoping to stay competitive in his job despitecommitments and a busy schedule, benefittedfrom taking up a modular course in maritimeand offshore operations at PACE Academy.The 36 year-old was able to learn about theactivities carried out in the oil and gas industry,and the financial and safety requirements. Hecompleted his short course after five months.He was able to apply his knowledge to a newjob in a subsea services company.Another adult learner is 42-year old Teng ChunHwa, who works as a software developer. AsChun Hwa’s company ventured into mobiledevelopment projects, the Masters Degreeholder felt that he did not have the specificskills to keep up with his work. He thensigned up for a modular course on MobileApplications at PACE Academy, which enabledhim to keep up with the latest technologicaltrends and contribute more significantly to hiscompany’s projects. Inspired by the modularcourse, Chun Hwa has enrolled in the part-timeSpecialist Diploma in Digital Technologies fora Smart City.We entered a three-year partnership withNTUC’s Employment & Employability Institute(e2i) that supports union members to attainnew industry-relevant skills to enhance theiremployability. They can leverage the UnionTraining Assistance Programme (UTAP) toattend skills-based modular courses underPACE Academy. SP and e2i will continue toidentify and bridge skill gaps of PMETs bydeveloping skills-based programmes to meetthe needs of the industry.PACE Academy also collaborated closelywith Workforce Singapore, SkillsFutureSingapore and the industry to launchProfessional Conversion Programmes(PCP) for sectors such as PrecisionEngineering, Manufacturing, Chemicals andBiopharmaceuticals. These programmes givea leg-up to fresh entrants, mid-careeristsor unemployed PMETs with no relevantbackground in the sector they are entering.A successful example is 28-year old AliciaChua from Lion TCR, a biopharmaceuticalcompany that develops cell therapy againstlife-threatening viral infections and viral-relatedcancers pertinent in Asia. Before her jobswitch, Alicia was a process engineer forfour years. She decided to venture into thebiopharmaceutical industry as she aspired tocreate new technologies that could improvethe quality of lives. After completing threemodules provided by PACE Academy, Aliciawas more confident and better able to assistresearchers in a clinical trial to develop a newmethod to treat liver cancer.3

4SINGAPORE POLYTECHNICANNUAL REPORT 2016/2017FOSTERING CLOSER INDUSTRY TIESThe past 12 months have also seen usstrengthening our relationships and addingvalue to the industry.Using IoT, Diploma in Computer Engineeringstudents Gan Zhi Xian and Tan Lok San helpedSanmina – SCI Systems Pte Ltd, a globalelectronics services provider, to develop andimplement an inventory tracking system toimprove the company’s productivity. Thesystem allows the company to track closeto 100 pieces of key equipment across threeseparate buildings at its current plant.Under the supervision of lecturers ChongSiew Ping and Phyoe Kyaw Kyaw, JoshuaMatthew, Jannai Heng and Bernard Sohfrom the Diploma in Electrical and ElectronicEngineering developed a smart bike alarm forADSEC Singapore, a retail security company,to address the problem of bike thefts. Thehand-sized alarm can be easily attached to abicycle through an app that enables the bike tobe locked and unlocked easily and tracked viaGoogle Maps.We also joined the industry-led 99% SMEcampaign to empower SMEs in the retail andfood & beverage (F&B) sectors to be digitallysavvy. Our SP students will help to raise thedigital and marketing capabilities of local F&Boperators. This not only enables the SMEs tostay ahead with greater digital capabilities butalso provides our students with a good learningplatform to apply their digital skills acquired.In the Earn and Learn Programmes (ELP)front, SP developed with the Maritime andPort Authority of Singapore (MPA) three ELPsto provide our graduates with a head startin their maritime careers. We also launchedan 18-month ELP to train fresh diplomaholders for the energy and chemicals sector.Participants were able to undergo on-campustraining at SP, structured on-the-job trainingand mentorship with industry leaders such asShell, Mitsui and Hyflux. After completing theELP, participants would attain an AdvancedDiploma in Chemical Engineering.Earlier this year, we formalised a collaborationwith BASF, a global market leader in the humannutrition industry, to spur greater innovation inthe food and nutrition sector. This includes thelaunch of BASF’s first regional Newtrition LabAsia Pacific at SP and the signing of a five-yearMemorandum of Cooperation (MoC), whereBASF will customise a five-month internshipprogramme for students from the School ofChemical and Life Sciences and co-developcourse modules and final-year projects.One such project saw Diploma in Food Scienceand Technology students Seah Zhi Yingworking with BASF researchers to co-developa method to improve the taste and qualityof coconut juice. This was in response toa request from BASF’s client based in ThePhilippines, who was looking for ways topreserve the quality of the packaged productafter heat treatment. This provided a platformfor our students to apply their skills andcontribute towards innovation for a multinational company, spurring its growth.Furthermore, we signed an MoU with six socialand community service agencies, marking thefirst structured internship programme betweenSP and the social and community servicesector. Enhanced internships are now offered tothe Diploma in Applied Drama and Psychology(DADP) students in a bid to meet the growingdemand of skilled labour in this sector.These industry tie-ups help SP shape ourcurriculum with greater relevance and alsobuild numerous career progression pathwaysfor our students.LAYING THE GROUNDWORKWe have ensured that our Education and CareerGuidance (ECG) efforts continue to be held tohigh standards. Our ECG resources – such astrained ECG counsellors and a dedicated ECGcurriculum – guide students as they identifytheir interests and strengths and develop theirprofessional skills. To this end, we signed aMemorandum of Understanding (MoU) withe2i, through which a new Career ExcellenceImmersion Programme will be rolled outto graduates embarking on ELP managedby SP. This is a first of its kind industryspecific programme to strengthen job-readycapabilities at the tertiary level. The one-dayjob preparatory workshop aims to inculcatein graduates soft skills, the right mindset andthe drive for professional development as theytransit into the workforce.Notably, we also admitted our first batchof students through the Polytechnic EarlyAdmissions Exercise (EAE), where admissionis based on aptitude and interests. This waspart of the efforts to emphasise talent andskills over grades in support of the SkillsFuturemovement.One notable EAE student is Diploma in Musicand Audio Technology (DMAT) student AxelTeoh. Axel took Events Management in ITEbut always had a heart for music. After ITE, hedecided to apply for DMAT via EAE(I) to pursuehis interest. He brought his performing andsong writing experiences to his EAE interviewand even performed some of his original rapsongs. His portfolio and performance won theinterview panel over and Axel managed to getinto a course much aligned with his passion.SP supports lifelong learning not merelyby being active in the Continuing Educationarena but it extends even to before a studentis admitted through the career guidance weprovide to applicants. By helping aspiringstudents to identify and pursue their passion,they are more likely to remain, learn, grow andachieve mastery in their chosen field.

SINGAPORE POLYTECHNICANNUAL REPORT 2016/2017GRADUATES OF EXCELLENCEAs we look at the pre-employment training(PET) students who have followed their passionand excelled in SP, we are hopeful that they willthrive in their fields and ride on the wave oflifelong learning.One exemplary graduate is Don Loi Xu, who isalso an Institutional Medallist. Don pursued theDiploma in Biotechnology course following aninterest to use his knowledge for the greatergood. SP gave him the chance to realise hisinterest in clinical research. He also undertooka seven-month internship at the Agency forScience, Technology and Research (A*STAR),where he collaborated with scientists onexperiments and contributed to new ideas andtreatments related to stem cell research. Today,Don has been offered the prestigious A*STARUndergraduate Scholarship (AUS) and is set ona path toward a purposeful career in science.We are also proud of the achievements ofEsther Tan, an Institutional Medallist andgraduate of the Diploma in Creative Writingfor TV and New Media course. Esther hadinitially taken the Junior College route after‘O’ Levels, but did not do well enough at ‘A’Levels to enrol into a local university. Shereconsidered her options, and enrolled intopolytechnic. At SP, the budding writer bloomed.She produced a documentary “Heartware”,which explored the topic of the aging populationin Singapore. “Heartware” was nominatedin the Best Documentary, Best Editing andBest Camerawork categories at the NationalYouth Film Awards, and also featured in twointernational film festivals. In addition, Estherhelped to write and produce SP’s very ownweb series, The Leon Theory, as part of herinternship with Big 3 Media. Her passion andgood work ethic impressed her supervisors thatthey offered her a full-time position, which shegladly accepted. Don and Esther are only two ofour pool of graduates who have dared to dreamand allowed SP to bring them to new heights.Another notable graduate is Loo Hui Ming,who was also part of the pioneer batch of thePolytechnic Foundation Programme (PFP).She earned the second place in her cohort of100 students who graduated with a Diplomain Financial Informatics. In Secondary Two,Hui Ming was aimless and demotivated, andstopped school for half a year. With the supportof her parents, she managed to recover andeven discover a strong interest in numbers. Herpassion propelled her to study hard and earn aspot in SP to pursue financial informatics. HuiMing’s journey in SP strengthened her resolveto use technology to help businesses. She hasbeen accepted into a fast track programmein Singapore Management University (SMU)where she will be pursuing a Master of AppliedInformation Systems on top of a Bachelor ofScience (Information Systems).A POLY FOR ALL AGESGoing forward, SP will double our efforts tobecome a poly not just for teenagers, but forall ages.While PET students may continue to form themajority of our student population and remaina critical part of our mission, CET must alsobecome integral to our mission.We must inspire our students to learn beyondtheir PET years and throughout their adultlives, helping them to upskill, retool and stayemployable. I envision a future where theclassrooms of SP are filled up in the night as it isin the day, where CET students learn in the samelaboratories and workshops as PET students,where parents and children access the sameonline course material together and even graduatetogether from their courses in SP.We have an exciting journey ahead. Let us allcome together to make this vision a realityand, and in doing so, SP will continue toplay a significant role in Singapore’s ongoingdevelopment.Mr Bill Chang York ChyeChairmanBoard of GovernorsSingapore Polytechnic5
