Bright Future Ahead

Diyan Ashkin Binte Abd Razak
Alumna, Diploma in Electronics, Computer & Communications Engineering
School of Engineering

Although Diyan is the only lady in her department, she is fully capable of holding her own. Looking back, she told us, NYP equipped her with many skills, including soft skills like communications and leadership; which are applicable to her field of work. This gave her a good head start. She also had a great lecturer who provided her with constant advice and even went the extra mile to clarify her questions and doubts. She shared that being an E&E-NYP Scholarship recipient opened doors for her too – during her internship at Electronics & Engineering Pte Ltd (E&E), the region’s Audio Visual (AV) integrator, she was involved in a big project at The Star Performing Arts Centre. Her responsibilities included doing video calibration and ensuring good quality sound and video transmission. She proudly recalls, “We managed to complete the entire project under the guidance of our supervisors from E&E!”

Her dedication during her internship paid off and Diyan was immediately offered a job with E&E upon graduation. “I feel honoured to be able to secure a job with a reputable company liked E&E.” Recalling one of her key takeaways from NYP, she said there is a quote from her tutor, which she will never forget – ‘if you fail to plan, you plan to fail’. Till date, “I still repeat that to myself every day, for any kind of project that I’m assigned to.”

Diyan found her career through her internship adventure; it’s time to carve out your own. Be innovative and enterprising, choose your own adventure at NYP Open House from 8 to 10 Jan 2015!
