With a plethora of engineering scholarships to choose from, two ST Engineering scholars tell us what exactly it is that attracts them to their employers.

As a child, Lim Wen Rong enjoyed peering under his father’s van to check out the various linkages, engines and transmissions. Little did he think that he would, someday, be working on those things and more in his job as an engineer.
Like many boys, 26-year-old Wen Rong had a fascination for aircraft from a young age. The ST Engineering scholarship holder currently works on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) at ST Aerospace.
He says, “Aeronautics and astronautics represent the forefront of technology. I chose ST Engineering as they’re not just about research and prototyping, but it also makes products that people actually use. It’s also an engineering firm with both defence and commercial businesses and so if you look at the breadth and depth of the company as a whole, it’s a really great choice to be a part of.”
