USP will host the Lee Shiu Summer Programme from 25 – 29 Jul. Under the theme "Road to Success in the Modern World”, students on the programme spend two weeks in Hong Kong, one week in Singapore and one week in Beijing. Sponsored by Dr Lee Shiu and Dr Jennie Mui Lee and co-organised by Chung Chi College of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Yuanpei College of Peking University and USP, the 2016 programme encourages students to put forward insightful ideas and in-depth discussion in the following five areas: Leadership and Creativity, Globalisation and Cultural Awareness, Civic Society and Public Governance, Environment and Sustainable Development, and Social Responsibilities and Community Service.
This annual Welcome Dinner formally welcomes freshmen to USP and our residential college, marking the start of their USP experience. USP faculty members and admin staff are invited to join in this meaningful occasion.
Organised by the University Scholars Club (USC), USP Freshmen Orientation Week (OWeek) builds on the friendships developed among the freshmen during USC Camp earlier this month, to further integrate the freshmen into our community as the new AY approaches. The freshmen will be exposed to the wide range of opportunities that USP provides and the diversity of people here in USP. They will, hopefully, be encouraged to get involved, shape, and develop our community.
The USP graduating Class of 2016 will be receiving their scrolls at this evening ceremony. This will be a joint ceremony between the USP and the Faculty of Engineering.
The guest speaker for the ceremony will be Ms Euleen Goh, Rector of Cinnamon College (USP).
Organised by the University Scholars Club (USC), the 2nd Asian Undergraduate Summit themed “Leadership in a Complex World: Smart Cities, Smart Citizens” officially started a month ago with the foreign legs in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. The Singapore Leg will continue the discussion on the complexities of smart cities. The programme incorporates a synergistic skills-based track that guides participants in consolidating their learning and ideas to improve existing smart cities initiatives. Students will participate in a series of workshops on Design Thinking Methodology and work in teams to translate the complex knowledge of smart cities into tangible proposals that aim to improve existing smart cities initiatives. Through this, it is hoped that participants, being future leaders of the world, will develop Design Thinking skills to develop holistic, multidisciplinary approaches and solutions to complex problems.
