Engineering matters for Singapore’s future, says PM Lee Hsien Loong



Singapore has boosted its water supply by recycling water and increased its physical size by reclaiming land – all feats of engineers.

Indeed, just as engineering helped transform Singapore into a modern state, it will continue to play a key role as the country strives to be a smart nation and overcome its lack of resources, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong yesterday.

But it has since become harder to attract top students to study engineering and do engineering jobs, as many opt for the humanities, business and finance, he noted.

Engineering is among the major professions here with the most vacancies in the past few years.
