Lu Kuiru’s Story
Faculty of Engineering
MSc(Eng)(EnergyE)

Lu Kuiru, a master’s student in engineering, participated in The Way to Success (TWTS) Workshops and Mentorship Programme organised by CEDARS. This exhilarating programme aims to build connections between students and prominent professionals from various backgrounds through having different group discussion and mentor-student interactions.  “I wished to acquire knowledge of different areas other than Science and Engineering. Hence, I applied for the programme,” Lu said.

Lu enjoyed participating in the programme and has gained a lot from it. “The experience was really rewarding!” He expressed. “Not only did this programme enhance my time management skills and leadership skills, but it also nurtured my perseverance and nudged me to embrace failures. I was also inspired by many famous professionals and the experience broadened my horizons!”

The programme has also enabled Lu to develop bonding with his mentor and fellows. “Before joining the programme, I rarely shared my struggles and obstacles,” he recalled. “My mentors, Jenny and Sylvia, shared their stories to me in the workshops. They encouraged me to open up to others and express my feelings. They also gave numerous useful advice on my career planning. I am so grateful to join the programme and learn from them!” Lu noted.
