SCALE participated in NUS Open Day for the first time on 11 March 2017. The event showcased 7 booths, namely Executive Development Programmes, Undergraduate Certificate Courses, and the 5 Bachelor of Technology (BTech) Programmes i.e. Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Industrial and Management Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.

Other than discovering more about SCALE’s programmes at the individual booths by talking directly to the consultants or professors, or by attending our informative talks, our visitors also received first-hand information from our students who are currently undergoing the various BTech programmes as they shared their final year projects. In particular, a robot designed and built by BTech students engaged the attention of visitors. The valuable interactions between visitors and students allowed the visitors to gain a better understanding of the learning and student-life experience in our part-time degree programmes.

Another highlight of this event was the five talk sessions that covered the BTech programmes, Undergraduate Certificate Courses and Executive Development Programmes offered by SCALE.

The School also launched a talk series entitled: “It Begins with NUS”. The first talk in the series, “Process Innovation Begins with NUS”, was delivered by Mr Mark Back, leading Lean Six Sigma expert and Managing Director of BMGI, Singapore. The second, “Design Thinking Begins with NUS”, was delivered by Mr Moses Mohan, Strategy and Transformation Consultant. Both distinguished speakers provided insightful sharing on the topics presented and there was active participation by delighted visitors during the interactive segments.

Overall, it was a fruitful event for SCALE to reach out to those wishing to improve themselves and upgrade their qualifications through part-time degree and executive development programmes. It was one of our many ways to put in action our commitment - ‘Supporting Adult Learners and Promoting Lifelong Learning’!
