It has been a life transforming journey at RP as the Diploma in Industrial and Operations Management (DIOM) has fuelled my passion to develop and implement solutions for corporations.
Initially, making daily presentations and writing reflection journals was a challenge for me. However, with a positive mindset and perseverance to adapt, I learnt to appreciate the importance of these tasks that has helped reaffirm my learning.
RP’s Problem-based Learning pedagogy has shaped me into an individual who can think critically, equipping me with a strong pivotal edge for my future career. It gave me the ability to solve actual problems faced by industry during my internship with PSA Corporation Limited. While at PSA, I was involved in various projects from enhancing data visualisation for yard inventory, automating various processes to handling reports on yard inventory and manpower monitoring. RP has prepared me to contribute effectively and resourcefully in these projects.
We have reached a significant milestone of our journey in RP. The knowledge, skillsets and experiences acquired will serve us well in our future endeavours.
I want to express my deepest gratitude to my Programme Chair Mr Jason Toh, Assistant Programme Chair Mrs Ling Siew Hui, Year Cohort Leader Mr Hoo Chee Wai and my dearest DIOM lecturers, Dr Teng Suyan, Mr Ong Lee Weng, Mr Goh Sian Meng, Mr Yong Fui Long, Mrs Diana Tang, Mr Nugroho Kristianto, and Mrs Lindy Wan. Their passion and enthusiasm have motivated and ignited the passion in every DIOM student.
