Because it has successfully completed a number of plant and ground engineering projects that align with my area of interests. Also its engineering business has been growing steadily over the past decade.
What did you enjoy most during your internship?
Interacting with the friendly staff, and gaining valuable knowledge related to the civil engineering field.
How have you applied what you learnt in school?
During my time with the Contracts and Legal Division, I applied what I’ve learnt into writing method of statement for the construction processes of contiguous bored pile, strutting, pontoon, etc..
What have you learnt through this internship? How has it benefited you?
I’ve learnt more about the tendering process. I visited project sites such as Bedok Canal (Contract 1), Sewage Treatment Plant at Jurong Island and the 3rd Water Desalination Plant at Tuas, which was an eye-opening experience as these were large-scale, meaningful projects that help in national efforts towards flood mitigation (Bedok Canal), and boosting water security (Desalination Plant).
I’ve also picked up some engineering software skills which will be beneficial when I join the industry.
