SOE: Top Institution Where Talents ThriveMDIS in the News

For Saiful, he found exactly what he was looking for academically at MDIS. Embarking on a degree in electrical and electronic engineering, awarded by Northumbria University, UK, he believes this qualification will open many wide and varied career pathways. He shares his insights.

Why did you make MDIS your choice institution to pursue a degree at?
It is a leading private institution here in Singapore and well known for its educational excellence. I am confident I have made the right choice by picking MDIS because it is creating a brighter future for me.

Share some of the advantages polytechnic graduates will gain by partnering with MDIS for a degree.
Engineering is not as easy as you think, as it is a broad subject which splits into many different disciplines. I developed a range of practical skills in polytechnic such as logical thinking, numeracy, and problem-solving, which are highly valued by employers in my industry. Joining MDIS allows me to hone these skills even better so I am more equipped when I graduate.

How has your education experience at MDIS been?
My degree, electrical and electronic engineering, covers a wide range of general principles and concepts. Assessment consists of examinations, coursework, laboratories, presentations, and project reports. The lecturers in MDIS are professional in handling the students and able to help us solve the problems given. The well-organised machines are easily handled, which have been useful for our studies and beneficial to our final year projects.

In what ways would your degree help in your career and future?
Because electrical engineering has many fields, what I am learning will help me gain an understanding and appreciation of them. I will be able to step out of my comfort zone, understand different subjects, and venture down new paths made possible with MDIS.
