Alumni Spotlight

Meet our start-up founder


“RP has fuelled my passion for IT and innovation. With the guidance and training I received, I was empowered to act on my desire to better society, meaningfully. “ – Charlie Angriawan 

Charlie Angriawan is the co-founder of Vita, the first-ever portal that enables companies to sort job applications based on referee-assessed values instead of just reviewing the candidates' resumes. 
Charlie graduated with a Diploma in Business Applications (now known as Diploma in Financial Technology) in 2019. During his team at RP, he was actively involved in service-learning projects and industry competitions such as Global Fintech Hackcelerator 2017, where his team, Polygen, won the student category prize in the Grand Finals. 
Charlie shared that his diploma has equipped him with the fundamentals to better understand both the financial and technological industries. With these knowledge, he was able to have a more fruitful internship in a local fintech start-up company. 
After graduation, Charlie co-founded Vita, a start-up that aims to enable companies to better assess the holistic capabilities of job applicants. “We believe that there is a missing link in the recruitment process. We have seen many of our friends with amazing talents but struggling to find jobs. So, we did a study and found out that more than half of applications are being rejected by bots that shortlist candidates based on keywords in the resume,” Charlie added.

Meet our Offensive Security Certified Professional

Lynn Lee

“I fell in love with our ethical hacking module and got genuinely passionate in it that I wanted to learn more! That interest pushed me to go for Offensive Security Certified Professional.” – Lynn Lee Qing Xia 

Lynn Lee Qing Xia is an Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP). She obtained her professional certification immediately after completing her Diploma in Infocomm Security Management (DISM) in 2021. 

Like many others, she did not know which course to pick before entering polytechnic, and thought Cybersecurity looked “pretty cool” and decided to pursue it. She developed a deep passion for the field and fell in love with the art of hacking. Lynn credits her DISM lecturers and mentors for igniting her interest. 

Lynn is currently working as Cyber Security Consultant at Wizlynx. Her future plans include pursuing further studies while gaining more industry experience, particularly in the field of cybersecurity.

From a disinterested student to an SMU Magna Cum Laude - Journey of an SOI’s Valedictorian

Asher Chua

“RP SOI has allowed me to dive deeper into the world of IT and mobile technology. Considering how technology has been part of the world’s progression, this course has clearly given us a competitive advantage over others in the future.” – Asher Chua 

Asher Chua works in Business Development at Impact. He graduated as a Valedictorian from RP with a Diploma in Mobile Software Development (DMSD) (now known as the Diploma in Digital Design & Development) in 2015, and SMU Magna Cum Laude in 2020.  

As a teenager, Asher described himself as disinterested in school and went through a rebellious phase, which led to him to drop out at the age of 15. Without an O-Level certificate, he struggled to find a stable job and worked various part-time jobs, until he decided to take his O-Levels as a private candidate. 

He saw a turning point in his journey when his 24-point O-Level result earned him a place in RP Diploma in Mobile Software Development. He was exposed to coding - a lot - and this kickstarted his passion for technology.  

Asher’s unconventional journey, fuelled by his passion for technology, gaming and software development, brought him to a massive success of graduating with Bachelor of Science (Information Systems), Magna Cum Laude, SMU.  

Looking and waiting for a turning point in your journey to your dream career? Have yet to discover your passion? Find out more in the Diploma in Digital Design & Development.

Journey of an unmotivated student to a high achieving graduate

Wei Zhang

“Don't compare yourself to others because there will always be others who are better than you. If you try, but fall short, it is not the end of the world. There are always opportunities for you to grow," – Chan Wei Zhang 

In his journey to becoming a software engineer, Chan Wei Zhang demonstrated how an unmotivated student with 109 in his PSLE result slip could be an achiever.  

As a child, Wei Zhang preferred computer games over studying. His education path outlines EM3 (a track for academically weaker pupils that was later scrapped in 2000), Normal (Technical) stream in secondary school, and ITE.  

“When I was in ITE, my only goal was to get into a polytechnic, and then enter the workforce. I never imagined myself going to university,” he shared. 

Wei Zhang pursued a Diploma in Information Technology (DIT) at RP, where he saw a dramatic improvement in his academic result. This progress inspired him to work even harder until he received his results.  

RP served as Wei Zhang’s launching pad towards earning a degree in Information Security at NUS Computing. He is currently works as a software engineer at one of the world’s leading manufacturers of equipment for test and measurement, as well as secure communications.

Golden opportunities drove her to entrepreneurship


“Make the best out of what you have and don’t dwell on what can’t be undone. Nobody can grow you if you refuse to grow yourself. Trust the process and do your best.” – Tay Yi Lin

Yi Lin is currently in her first year of undergraduate studies at Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computing Science (joint degree between SIT and University of Glasgow, UK). She is also a recipient of the prestigious SIT Scholarship, and has been selected to join the SkillsFuture Work-Study Degree programme with Accenture.

She joined the C200 Special Project track in her second year in RP – a project that gave her a lot of opportunities to dabble in different technologies which were not covered in the usual IT classes. This enabled her and her teammates to participate in competitions such as the SCS Splash Award, SP Group Ideator Challenge, to name a few. This brushed up her public speaking and project management skills, which are vital soft skills needed for an industry-ready graduate to succeed in today’s competitive landscape.

For her final semester, she decided to embark on the Entrepreneurship Innovation Programme (EIP) where she had the opportunity to establish her own start up business – Repave Tech LLP which provides RPA solution consultation and solutions to clients. Within a span of 20 weeks, she worked on proposals for RP’s internal departments and even managed to secure a fee-paying client who adopted her proposal!

All these golden opportunities provided Yi Lin the hunger and drive in the fields of innovation, technology and entrepreneurship. Although she had secured a place with another polytechnic via the Early Admissions Exercise (EAE) after secondary school, a twist of events led her to choose RP and discover the potential of IT in her learning journey. Yi Lin is grateful of all the assistance and guidance by her lecturers and project supervisors, who nurtured her passion for technology.
