I have been working at AEL as a Graduate Trainee (Mechanical) since 2015. During the two-year training period, I have been posted in different Engineering Units and I am glad to be involved in various projects which further polish my effective communication skills, enrich my technical knowledge and practical experience, along with many challenges and opportunities.  


The training program has offered me multiple opportunities, at which I participated in the mechanical installation projects and the development of waste treatment facilities. In the installation project, it was a vulnerable experience for me to go through the whole project, from budgeting, procurement, design, fabrication and installation, to practical works in construction site. Besides, I am delighted to be one of the team members of Waste & Recycling Unit and it is a source of pride to apply my mechanical knowledge on solving environmental problems nowadays.


Throughout the training, AEL has given me great flexibility and guidance to grow up and to learn, and my mentors’ consistent input have been invaluable. Meanwhile, I learnt to gauge and criticize issues in macro perspectives from working with some of the brightest minds in the business and the industry which are truly valuable assets for my career path.
