One Degree, Many Choices: A Glimpse into the Career Choices of the NTI Pioneer Engineering Class of 85

by Liu Fook Thim

An early crossroad in life is choosing a field of study at the university. This lays the foundation for the rest of our lives. This book records the career choices of the first batch of 557 engineering graduates from the Nanyang Technological Institute (NTI) as NTU was known in 1985. Engineering was then the only discipline offered. The passage of 25 years yielded deep insights as these pioneers reflected on the impact of their engineering education on their careers.
          
Demonstrating the reach and significance of engineering will arouse the curiousity and imagination of the young, especially those good at maths and science. These life stories showcase the options open to an engineering graduate. If this book inspires some to take up an engineering education in general and at NTU in particular, it will have achieved its purpose.
