France Engineering Alumni Cocktail at the French Residence [fr]
Campus France Singapore and the Embassy of France organized a cocktail for the France Engineering Alumni on the 20th of February at the French residence. 35 Alumni, Singaporeans and international former students from French Engineering Schools attended this event.
The reception was an opportunity for French Ambassador Marc Abensour to recall that 400 students from Singapore are going to study to France every year, mostly in business and political science fields. Among those students, only 5 % choose to study in engineering schools. Developing the attractiveness of the French engineering schools is one of the priorities of Campus France Singapore and the French Embassy.
French engineering schools are recognized worldwide for their quality and excellence. Skills like entrepreneurship, leadership, creativity, problem solving are at the core of the trainings in these schools. The French Engineering Degree is highly valued by the French & Singaporeans Companies as well as MCNs, in the fields of Aeronautics, Cybersecurity, Smart-cities, Data Science, and Artificial Intelligence.
3 Alumni, Lim Seng, Director of In-Genius and Alumni from CPE Lyon, Yu-Jia Cheong, student from Polytechnique, and Chris Cheong, CEO of Orchard Turn Developments, Alumni from ESIGETEL & ESSEC, shared very interesting testimonies about their experiences and the benefits they gain from studying in France in their career.
