Our Student Projects

Measuring Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) of Vannamei Fry (2021)

In their final year of study, our students had the opportunity to intern at Fin by BOAT, Singapore’s first indoor aquaculture farm located in Tuas. Our students acquired many important skills such as water monitoring, care and husbandry of fishes as well as learning about the use of nanobubble technology in aquaculture.

Developing Cost-effective Pelleted Feed to Replace the Use of Expired Confectionery Products at West Johor Strait farms (2021)

During their internship, students were involved in the husbandry of tilapias for their major project at the Marine Aquaculture Centre (MAC). It gave them the opportunity to apply the general husbandry skills and concepts they had learned; such as proper feeding techniques and management, water parameters testing, and behaviour monitoring.

The Diagnostic Use of Intraocular Pressure Measurement in Sedated Birds (2021)

Students worked on a research project focused on avian ophthalmology during an internship with Jurong Bird Park. They had the invaluable opportunity to practice essential clinical skills and gained new knowledge on providing care for avian patients, which boosted their passion for veterinary care.
