  • REB Challenges? Doing the time lapse video for this module was not such an easy task as we had to scout places and stand under all weathers to get the scenes, even in the rain . BUT WE HAD FUN. Be apart of Singapore's upcoming real estate industry buzz that as Singapore becomes the biggest upcoming suburban commercial hub. Most interesting module? And why? Urban planning and economics. Its fun as I get to learn about the area Im filming which is boat quay, where the modern meets the historical part of Singapore.

Shes an fun loving lecturer whose lectures are easy to follow and keeps one wanting to listen more to her. Greta Lee , REB Year 2 (Real estate business)
  • PDI Most interesting module? And why? one of the preferred module would be VTDS ( visual technology and design sketches) Im a more of a sketcher and designer, rather then a bookworm or dry subjects kind of guy so I can relate and settle to this module really well. I do a lot of sketching, some in pen and sketch a variety including electrical appliances, vehicles, and random products. We also learn the technique of colour blending and how to make the sketch pop out. Challenge In PDI? At some point of time, there would be a lot of projects and submissions needed to be handed in at one go. So things can get real busy at times. Sketches are also another thing that can be quite a headache as we may need to submit up to 20-30 sketches per week. Most favorite lecture? The lecturer is Geoffrey Tan and he is really is a useful lecturer for the module he is very easy going and friendly. Helps us with our work in a different way, guiding us to do our sketches properly and also encourage us to think out of the box With millions of products out there all fighting for the consumers attention, you have to ask yourself: what separates the dull from the wow? If that came across your mind, then PDI is the right course for you! (Product design & innovation) Muhammad Khoirul Khaial bin Zainal, PDI Year 2
  • SDE Challenge in SDE? The sheer numbers of models we have to make might be a problem. But when youre finally done with the model, we feel a sense of accomplishment.. This course concentrates on how pleasing a building should be in the future not only to the environment but also to a persons eyes Most interesting module? And why? Design and communication. we learn to be abstract and think out of the box. we had to do a lot if drawings to riding our skills and learn how to shade buildings and objects. We even went to marina bay for one of our lessons to draw the Singapore skyline . We have to make models from scratch on what we make vision on. Most favourite lecturer? Miss Arunima Chatuji. being our tutor for model making classes, instead of teaching us how we should make a model, she lets us find the most comfortable way for us to make out models by ourselves. (Sustainable urban design & engineering) Mohammad Hassanul Aman B M S, SDE Year 1

The trip was aimed to provide students with exposure to the economic centre in Hong Kong and gain knowledge about the city cultural, political and economic climate. Overseas trip allow students to be exposed to foreign culture and practices, and at the same time develop a global-mindset.
  • What made you sign up for the trip? Its because I havent been to any trip that NP offered, and I wanted to make sure I make use of the chance I get. How did you spend your time there? We had school trips and visits to CBD etc. Had some good food such as pigeon meat and goose meat. Shopping (Ladies Market) at night. AND DISNEYLAND! What are the challenges you faced there? My camera memory card was not enough, and finding my way around (which got easier after we're kind of familiarised). Was the trip there worth it? Yes definitely! I made many friends through this trip. If given a 2nd chance would you go there again? IF YES, WHY? Yeah, why not. Had a great time in Disneyland, one of the most memorable experiences in HK.. We didnt go for many rides so it will be great to go there again. Liu Yi Ying Sustainable Urban Design & Engineering, Year 3
  • Azrie Hotel & Leisure Facilities Management, year 3 What made you sign up for the trip? I didnt want my poly life to be totally in the poly, I would like to be outside learning and doing things also. How did you spend your time there? My time there was great. Great food. Great company. Great experience. Great lecturers. I learnt about sustainability, history of Hong Kong, how Disneyland works and of course, have fun there. Was the trip there worth it? It was totally worth. No one will ever regret their time when going for this study trip. What are the challenges you faced there? The challenges I faced is mainly communication with the local people. as not all of them can understand English, in fact most of them speaks Cantonese, I have a problem of communicating with them. but fortunately, the friends around me knew how to communicate with the locals and they helped me a lot. If given a 2nd chance would you go there again? IF YES, WHY? Yes I would go again. Mainly for the food and the freedom given to us by the lecturer. I feel this freedom is the consideration that made me feel its worth.. To add on, the 1 week trip wasnt enough to totally explore HK. So, I would like to visit HK and explore it some more.
  • What made you sign up for the trip? I wanted to go to HK because of my friends and enjoy the food and sightseeing. How did you spend your time there? I spent a reasonable amount of time learning about HK and also learnt things that are relevant to my course. I also spent time trying local food and sightseeing. Was the trip worth it? Yes the trip was worth it as it was very fun and enjoyable. What are the challenges you faced there? The challenge is the language as I do not understand Cantonese and when some of the locals speak Cantonese, it pose as a challenge to me. Even though I am a Chinese, it was hard to communicate due to the difference in dialect. If given a 2nd would you go there again? IF YES WHY? Yes I would as there are still many places in HK that I have not visited and food that I have not tried! Vincent Xu Real Estate Business, Year 3
  • What made you sign up for the trip? I wanted to go HK cuz I've never been to a country that far before, never had a getaway with my friends before. There was also a visit to Disneyland, which was majority of the students main purpose of applying for the HK trip haha. How did you spend your time there? Most of my time spent in HK was sightseeing and having some school visits over there. Despite the not so interesting school visits, we also had some own time to walk around by ourselves which was pretty enjoyable. Was the trip there worth it? The trip was worth it, though it was only a week away from home. What are the challenges you faced there? There were times where we fear being scammed by the retail store owners, as they knew that we were not local people due to the dangling cameras we were holding and the language barrier too. If given a 2nd chance would you go there again? IF YES, WHY? I would head over to HK again, one reason is cuz of the cheap items that are sold over there, The food over there are really tasty, though could be pricey at time. Sounds childish, but I would go back for the Disneyland again. Though it was only a week, new friends were made, and fun times were spent together. Product Design & Innovation, Year 3 Jaeme Goh
