NTU undergrad is first Singapore champion of an internationally acclaimed engineering competition
Date:12/30/2008

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) undergraduate Liu Shiyu has the honour of becoming the first student from Singapore to win the top prize in a global competition that pitted engineering students and young professionals from around the world.

In the competition organised by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), UK, the fourth year mechanical engineering student from NTU's School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering beat three other contestants in the finals, including a PhD candidate from Northern Ireland.

Known as the Present Around the World (PATW) Competition, the finals was held in London in November and saw four regional champions vie for the top honour as global grand champion. The contestants are required to present an original engineering project in front an international panel of judges, where they are judged not only in terms of technical content but also on their presentation skills.

The win over his native speaking rivals from Canada, Northern Ireland and New Zealand is sweeter for China-born Liu, 23, as English is not his first language. He is also the only undergraduate student in the global finals, as apart from the PhD candidate, the other two contestants are professionals.

"I am very excited and honoured to have won this prestigious award. All the participants are very talented and their project entries were very innovative and interesting. I never expected to win the top prize. But I am very passionate about my project; hence I probably did well during my presentation. I could sense that the audience were very attracted to the illustration of my project," said Liu.

Liu represented the Asia Pacific region in the competition after coming up tops in the regional finals held in Kuala Lumpur in July this year. Liu emerged victorious after beating contenders from China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia and Sri Lanka. Liu marched on to the regional phase after being crowned the Singapore
