Dr Mathias Egermark sharing his achievements and reflections during his candidature as a NUS Executive Visiting Fellow.
The NUS Executive Visiting Fellows Programme
The NUS Executive Visiting Fellows programme brought together NUS faculty, researchers and the Visiting Fellow to enable multidisciplinary learning, which proved to be greatly beneficial for both Mathias and the teams involved. “We were able to combine teaching and learning from highly experienced and competent minds like Mathias and produce exceptional research outcomes in the form of two articles and a co-authored book chapter”, shared Professor Dean Ho, Provost’s Chair Professor and Head, Department of Biomedical Engineering, College of Design and Engineering and Director of The N.1 Institute for Health (N.1) and The Institute for Digital Medicine (WisDM). “This programme gives accomplished professionals access to the most relevant knowledge within the fields that interest them. At the same time, Fellows enrich NUS by bringing their own experience and unique viewpoints to both classrooms and research projects,” chimed Professor Susanna Leong, Vice Provost for Masters' Programmes and Lifelong Education and Dean of the School of Continuing and Lifelong Education.
In addition, the relationships built during the time spent in NUS has generated new exciting collaborations between Roche and NUS entities such as NUS Business School, The Institute of Operations Research and Analytics (IORA), and College of Design and Engineering. “We are very excited to share that the partnership with Mathias will continue and we look forward to many more opportunities to collaborate with Roche in the future,” remarked Professor Ho.
“Within the field of engineering, there is merit in creating consistent results and a reliable system. The success of this programme is an example of the importance of trying new things and breaking new ground in order to create more value to society,” said Associate Professor Chai Kah Hin, Vice Dean at the Office of Masters' Programmes & Lifelong Education (OMPLLE)).
The NUS Executive Visiting Fellows programme, in providing a unique infusion of inspiration, unparalleled learning and applied knowledge for participants, is a testament to NUS’ dedication to provide inspiring and transforming education for individuals throughout their career.
