Under their final-year project, Landscape Design & Horticulture students took part in NPark’s habitat enhancement programmes by landscaping part of Pulau Ubin’s sensory trail.
Students from Environmental & Water Technology taught Geylang Serai residents how to make miniature rain gardens to remove pollutants, in conjunction with Singapore World Water Day.
Students from Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering took part in the “Clear Shores, Clean Water” international coastal clean-up event, organised by the Singapore Chemical Industry Council in support of World Environmental Day. By keeping our shores and water free from plastics and other wastes, this event highlights the needs to use and dispose of plastics responsibly.
Students from Biomedical Science went to Genome Institute of Singapore (A*STAR) for their internship, where their primary role was to extract high-quality RNA for use in various virus projects. They worked alongside professionals to gain relevant expertise in the area of RNA, including laboratory techniques such as RNA extraction, primer testing, bacterial transformation and tissue culture.
During their overseas internship to the UK, Biomedical Science students were hosted by Sheffield University in the Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology. Their roles were to characterize DNA segregation proteins and reconstitute bacterial chromosome dynamics. They were exposed to research techniques ranging from molecular biology, biochemistry and fluorescence microscopy.
During their overseas internship to China, students from Biomedical Science were hosted by Guangxi Medical University in the School of Public Health. Their primary roles were to understand the mechanism behind malignant tumours and congenital malformations clinically and at a molecular level. They were exposed to research techniques ranging from environmental health risk assessment, epidemiological study and toxicological study.
As a Regional Process Control Manager at Novartis, Sylvia is responsible for the overarching process improvement and process control of clinical trial monitoring in the region.“The BMS course provided a firm foundation for me to understand the scientific background in clinical trial protocols. It played a significant role in deciding my career path and helped me secure my first two jobs at pharmaceutical MNCs.”
“I had the opportunity to assist pharmacists to prepare and dispense medications for patients during my internship at the National University Hospital’s Pharmacy Department. Those hands-on experiences allowed me to gain a deeper appreciation of the inner workings of the pharmaceutical industry.”*now renamed as Diploma in Pharmaceutical Science
“The LDH course covers various fields of studies and is a fantastic stepping stone to progress into extensive career options that include landscape design, horticulture and urban planning.”
“Besides being equipped with applied knowledge in chemical engineering, I was constantly challenged to explore opportunities out of my comfort zone, in areas such as public speaking and event management. My learning journey at NP has prepared me for the life ahead.”
“My journey in NP was nothing short of amazing. Multiple overseas programmes deepened my knowledge about environmental issues. I hope to play a key role in solving water pollution problems in the future.”
