Why did you decide to join HSSMI?

JD: To me, it’s the vast exposure to different types of projects and industries. I have already been involved in aerospace, automotive and some research projects relating to the energy sector. All of these have so much to offer and learn. This also leads to work being enjoyable with occasions to learn new things everyday and work on a large variety and scale while contributing towards net-zero regardless of the industry. I have also got chances to develop my manufacturing engineering, logistics and supply chain and even business strategy and development skills all in the context of net-zero which I find very interesting and exciting.
