From L to R: Dr Thomas Ang, Scientist, Trevor and Dr Jason Png, Director of
Electronics & Photonics department
Q: How has this internship benefits you?
My internship at IHPC has certainly provided me with practical experience, namely being able to run simulations using a coded script, and to import, analyse and effectively present data using a separate Python code.
I also learnt a lot from my 2 supervisors, Dr Jason Png, Director and Dr Thomas Ang, Scientist from the Electronics & Photonics department, where they both specialise in electrical engineering, particularly in the field of photonics. They would be the ones I would approach for advice if I ever aim to specialise in photonics or require an academic reference in the future.
Through the regular preparations for my presentations at regular meetings, I have also acquired the ability to improvise when necessary and convey information effectively.
Prior to this internship, I read ahead of the syllabus to prepare myself for the projects and literature review. I am certain that the scientific knowledge acquired during my internship will be applicable and useful for my upcoming third year course in university.
