Mr Justin Ang's Final Year Project (FYP) involved developing a smart vending machine for the distribution of diabetic and eye medication to residents near a medical centre in the North, where the pharmacy had recently closed.
A restructured hospital and ST Logistics provided valuable inputs as partners for Mr Ang's project. He developed negotiation and adaptability skills during the project as disagreements over what product mix should be available in the vending machine.
Mr. Ang, who plans to pursue a degree in supply chain management and eventually become a buying officer after graduating from RP in 2020, is presently serving National Service. He's drawn to working in the humanitarian supply chain, where he can help to ensure disaster relief supplies are bought at a reasonable cost and delivered as fast and efficiently as feasible.
“RP alumni stand out from other polytechnic graduates because they have already been exposed to real-world industry difficulties in their lessons,” he says, adding that his RP education has provided him a strong foundation for his future.
