SMRT TRAIN DELAYS PLAGUE MORNING RUSH HOUR AGAIN DUE TO POWER FAULT

Yet another day of train delays during the morning rush hour! Both the North-South and East-West lines are affected due to "intermittent power", with SMRT warning commuters of longer intervals in between stations. Some people were unhappy that SMRT posted about the delay only at 7.26am when it happened more than an hour earlier. As of a few minutes ago, SMRT updated that there was also a track fault at Commonwealth station and said its engineers are carrying out checks.

IS IT TRUE THAT WORKING AS AN ENGINEER GOT NO FUTURE IN SINGAPORE?

I can't speak for 18, 19 years old young people today, but let me offer my perspective as someone who studied engineering in Singapore.

I studied Electrical Engineering in National University of Singapore and graduated in 2007. Most of the people I know from my engineering course are either not working in engineering/technology field (many have moved to banking/finance/real estate) or have moved to project/product management. Very few people are still doing coding/engineering work.

S'POREAN WITH PHD IN PHYSICS UNABLE TO FIND JOB IN SINGAPORE

I have a PhD in Physics. I can hardly find a job that matches my background. I am open to Bachelor degree positions but even that has limited options. I left my last long term job as a senior engineer close to one year ago. My sister said that I have an attitude problem. Maybe she is right. But after my mental breakdown I feel I could barely integrate back into the work place and society in general.
