Father knows best. This adage certainly holds true for Lee Boon Yao.
After all, the senior Lee was a graduate of SP, worked with the air force and now owns an engineering firm. Boon Yao was inspired by his dad and decided to take up the Diploma in Aeronautical Engineering (DARE) in SP.
Being enrolled in the popular course meant Boon Yao spurred him to work hard, eventually earning him an SP Engineering Scholarship and A*STAR Science Award. Along the way, Boon Yao also experienced first-hand working on aircraft components during his internship with Taikoo Aircraft Engineering Company in Xiamen, China. The internship further fuelled his passion to join the aeronautical industry.
Boon Yao graduated as one of SP’s top graduates. He has since received the Nanyang Scholarship from Nanyang Technological University, and plans to continue his aeronautical engineering studies after his national service. Upon getting his degree, he hopes to work for an established engineering firm and eventually join his father’s company and expand it overseas.
Let your aspirations take flight in SP. #SPOH18 #whySP #SPJAE18
