As Kaplan in Singapore is the only local education provider of my desired qualification, the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) (Honours) (Top-up) Degree programme by RMIT University, I chose to study with them to seize the opportunity to acquire it. Their flexible programme timetables and the campus’s central location were additional advantages of doing so.

I appreciate the conduciveness of Kaplan’s classes and facilities, and as I am currently working full-time in aerospace manufacturing. The flexible timetable of its programmes have also benefitted me tremendously in balancing my work and studies. In light of my Kaplan education, I am considering advancing to a Master’s Degree in the next few years.

After evaluating recommendations and my own research, I chose to further my education with Kaplan due to its good reputation and respectable brand name. In addition, the campus’ centralised location provides a very conducive study environment for its wide range of programmes from various universities. Among their many university partners, RMIT University was my choice as it offered a direct honours Degree programme which could be completed in less than 3 years. Also, I believe with RMIT University being a top ranking University for excellence in higher education programmes, I was assured of the education’s relevance and value in advancing my career.

The programme’s units have enabled me to apply my studies to work, building my confidence in analysing problems and empowering me to propose solutions for project presentations. My studies were supported by fantastic lecturers who go the extra mile to assist students with their excellent teaching techniques complemented by their extensive knowledge, and I commend them for their mentoring, patience and guidance.

Studying at Kaplan has been a positive and enjoyable experience. As the class timetable was provided in advance, I could plan my time and balance work with my evening classes. As such, I strongly recommend this programme for those working full-time, especially in shift-work like myself.

Due to the flexible timetable of its programmes and the convenient location of its local campus, I pursued further education with Kaplan. Of the several University partners available, RMIT University was my choice due to its QS five-star university rankings in several areas including research, facilities, employability and teaching, and its global renown for producing capable students.

I was able to manage my studies alongside my work commitments, even on a shift-work basis, thanks to the adaptable scheduling. The University staff and lecturers are very kind and friendly, doing their best to provide me assistance in my studies. I would like to thank them for motivating and supporting me throughout the programme.

Aspiring to be a senior engineer in my company, I feel that my experience has taught me skills that will not only allow me to remain competitive and relevant in the job market, but also prevail as a qualified engineer.

I have always had interest in Engineering, especially with regards to design processes and the subject of “Mechanical Vibrations”. My choice to study with RMIT University through Kaplan was so I could visit the University’s Melbourne campus and experience their lab programmes.

My part-time student experience was both challenging and interesting. After having my firstborn, burning the midnight oil became a necessity to complete my assignments and studies, and I had considered giving up then and there. Thanks to my supportive wife however, I persevered.

Being a part-time student at Kaplan has improved my time management skills, as I became adept at balancing my time wisely between my personal life, work and school even with my job requiring frequent travel.

Despite my sacrifices, it was all worth it in the end. I would recommend my fellow students to make the best of this programme by studying hard, asking questions if in doubt, and to think like an engineer and strive to learn beyond what is taught.

I decided to study at RMIT as the University is well ranked among the world’s top Universities in Engineering and Technology. I also loved the fact that the Degree programme has a well-balanced curriculum that covers everything from useful theories, mechanical engineering design to a broad range of application knowledge.

Personally, I am grateful to have had the guidance of dedicated lecturers with rich industry experience, and that further fuelled my confidence to make an impact as an Engineer. Armed with this transformational knowledge, I also managed to make a career switch from my previous shipbuilding organisation to my current company during my final year of studies. For students studying the same programme as I did, I would like to let them know that they should not just attend lessons to pass examinations. They should go to class with a heart to learn from the very best.

I came to Kaplan as it has a strong global brand name in education. I made my choice to enrol for the Mechanical Engineering Degree from RMIT University because of its strong reputation and well-paced class schedule that suited my busy work plans.

By incorporating strong Engineering subjects and industry experienced lecturers in this programme, my studies with RMIT did not simply improve my knowledge but also inspired me on my every step to success. I would like to express my sincere thanks to Dr Reddy P. Chandra for his experienced insights, helpfulness and dedication. And because of him, I am a proud first class honours graduate today.

And that was not all, I was also promoted to a Quality Assurance Engineer with my current employer in my final year of studies.

As a professional technician, I know that employers value the experience we bring to the table. So when I shared with my company my wish to pursue a Mechanical Engineering Degree from RMIT University at Kaplan, they offered to sponsor me for the full programme.

I have learnt skills that were beyond theory in textbooks. With every assignment, I had ample opportunities to uncover real-world, problem-solving skills and applicable knowledge such as Mechanical Design, which I can easily relate to my job needs at any time.
