A career talk titled ‘Explore careers in Desalination’ was held on 8 July 2011, for engineering students of Nanyang Technological University (NTU). Representatives from International Desalination Association’s Young Leaders Program (IDA-YLP) also gave an introduction on the career opportunities present in the desalination industry. Besides that, the talk highlighted the Singapore Membrane Technology Centre (SMTC) and how this member of NEWRI Ecosystem provides opportunities for these undergraduates in the near future.
The centre research activities are mainly focused on applied membrane technology for ‘Sustainable Water’ and is achieved through a combination of students from different universities and industry partners. The laboratory is equipped with state of the art facilities and supported by modern analytical instruments to enable high quality membrane research such as Particle Image Velocimetry. SMTC welcomes collaboration with other research institutions and industry on projects relating to membranes and the environment and water technology.
