More than just compassion

For me, nursing has unveiled the most important lessons in life as it taught me to demonstrate a growth mindset, look for meaning in the everyday life and explore the cause-and-effect relationships of health and diseases.

Nicole Vale_Civil Engineering

Female role model in Civil Engineering

Coming from a family of engineers, my interest in building and construction was sparked a very young age. I hope to be an inspiration for other women who aspire to do Civil Engineering out there!

Poovindran Pillai_MDME

Career development is my priority

The future economy is moving towards automation, and we need to carefully choose our area of study to avoid becoming obsolete. My passion for Mechanical Engineering began six years ago in ITE, and SIT's Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Engineering course seemed to be the best fit for me.

Rehabilitation helped me before

I am pursuing a Physiotherapy degree because I recognise the importance of physical rehabilitation after being supported through an injury in my younger years.
