BCA – Passion, Dream, Influence

Kiat _BCA_pic

From the pyramids to the Acropolis, how the ancient people built their structures has always fascinated Chee Kiat ever since he was a little boy. Following his passion, he naturally  chose Civil Engineering and took up BCA’s scholarship for its bright prospects.

Chee Kiat has gone through a myriad of developmental opportunities since he started his career in BCA.  This includes overseeing building regulations, attachment to a private firm (CPG Corporation) and a chance to work in China on the ­Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City project during his secondment to the Ministry of National Development. He also pursued his Masters at Imperial College in London under the ­prestigious ­Commonwealth Scholarship. His current portfolio involves getting the ­construction industry to adopt more of the latest technology.

His advice to prospective scholarship seekers is: “Do not be afraid to be different. If your interest is in building and ­construction, go for the relevant courses and pursue your dreams!”
