Our Achievements

The Doctor is in!


Joshua Teo Han Wei who graduated from the Diploma in Biomedical Engineering (Merit) in 2012, achieved a first when he was admitted to the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine at NUS in 2014.   After a long journey, he finally fulfilled his childhood dream to be a medical doctor, obtaining his MBBS in 2019 -- becoming the first Engineering student from TP to do so. 


Now a General Practitioner in a private medical group, the energetic doctor recalled his days in TP: “I am grateful to my diploma for giving me the basic engineering skill sets and research techniques, that have helped me to achieve my dream,” he said.


Achievement - Doctor


Achievement - ARTSIC


Three Biomedical Engineering students invented a unique Anti-Snoring Oral Device, achieving a Merit Award as well as Best Poster award in annual Assistive & Rehabilitation Technologies Student Innovation Challenge (ARTSIC) 2021.


The device is inserted into a patient’s mouth during sleep, so as to prevent the tongue from sliding backwards into the throat, thereby eliminating snoring.

Green Wave Environmental Care Competition


Biomedical Engineering students won a Silver award in the Green Wave Environmental Care Competition 2021, for inventing an “Eco-Soap” – a small step that saves cost, but a giant leap for sustainability.  Their soap is made from used cooking oil (UCO) which is pre-treated to remove its impurities and then upcycled to produce skin-safe, eco-friendly soaps.
