Celebrating Distinguished Engineering Alumni Awardees

19 October

About 300 alumni and guests attended the annual NUS Engineering Alumni Gala Dinner held on 19 October 2018. It was an occasion to renew ties and to celebrate the achievements and services of Mr Gan Seow Kee (’76), Chairman and Managing Director of ExxonMobil Asia Pacific Pte Ltd; and Er Lim Peng Hong (’83), Managing Director of PH Consulting Pte Ltd. Mr Gan and Er Lim received the Distinguished Engineering Alumni Award (DEAA), which are conferred on Engineering alumni who have distinguished themselves nationally or internationally by their excellent, sustained contributions and achievements in public and community service; entrepreneurship; in a profession or scholarly field.

The Alumni Gala Dinner also recognised the generosity of alumni, which resulted in the establishment of four new bursaries, two new scholarships, as well as a study trip for selected students to China. Apart from the monetary contributions, alumni also volunteered their time to mentor students in the Alumni Mentorship Programme, which was piloted in August 2018. The 2018 cohort of Engineering graduates rallied together to raise more than $22,000 to change the lives of their juniors in financial needs, and achieved the highest participation rate in this year’s Commencement Class Giving.
