As the bedrock on which every modern society is built, engineering plays a very important role in all our lives. From tackling vital issues such as delivering clean water and renewable energy to our household and industries, increasing our land size through land reclamation, to improving our quality of life by the invention of innovative and non-invasive medical devices, engineers will always be a mainstay in any developed society. Pervasive connectivity, which enables learning and knowledge sharing anytime and everywhere, has seamlessly penetrated into our daily lives. All these have been attributed to the works of engineers, without whom, we would not be able to do the things we all take for granted.
The reliance on food, chemicals and medicinal drugs is becoming increasingly real today. With Singapore being resource-scarce, it is crucial for us to develop expertise in chemical and pharmaceutical engineering as well as food technology to sustain both the growth of our population as well as the economy. These sectors provide careers with lots of opportunities for innovation, where new sources of sustenance can be developed and old ones improved upon, without impacting too much on nature. The pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries are constantly on the lookout for the next innovative drug, alternative energy that is sustainable and economical, and new and healthier food products.
As Singapore propels forward into a future that entails an increasing level of inter-connectivity to each other and to the world at large, the needs of our population rest on information and communication technology. Being continuously ‘plugged in’ to information enables society to keep abreast of change and, in some instances, to even anticipate and predict the next game-changing technology. At the same time, the realities of remaining connected mean that our systems are vulnerable to external threats. So the industry offers many opportunities for developers/creators as well as the more practical-minded professionals who are mindful of keeping us all safe from potential threats.
Like many other developed nations, Singapore will have to cope with an ageing population as well as an increased security threat in the years ahead. As our population ages, the demands on our healthcare system and homeland security forces will continue to increase.
There is always the need for a pool of healthcare and homeland security professionals to provide round-the-clock support and care for our people.
Design has a way of impacting our lives in the most obvious and the most subtle ways; just like how a host can welcome you to their abode. The impact that a building makes from the outside can take your breath away, just as how its interiors can create a lasting impression. Or how a simple gesture from someone over a counter, or even a cool gadget in a living space can leave you coming back for more. Whether you dream to inspire others with your creations or look to leave a lasting impression with your personal touch, a career in design or hospitality business will help fulfil your dreams.
