About Republic Polytechnic
Republic Polytechnic is one of the five polytechnics in Singapore. It is also the first and by far, the only institution in Singapore that implements true Problem Based Learning (PBL) pedagogy and is famous for its One-Day-One-Problem PBL approach. Their teaching staff is more commonly known as facilitators instead of lecturers. School of Engineering (SEG) is one of the largest school in Republic Polytechnic, and it offers various engineering diplomas. Currently, students from SEG’s Diploma in Biomedical Electronics, Diploma in Digital and Electronics Entertainment and Diploma in Aerospace Avionics takes a PCB related module and need to learn EDA software. The school has chosen DesignSpark PCB as the EDA software to be used for the module. Republic Polytechnic hence becomes the first institution in Singapore to use DesignSpark for curriculum.
About Eugene Tham
Eugene graduated from Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University with First Class Honors in Applied Science (Computer Engineering). Upon his graduation, He continued his full time post-graduate Master’s degree with the same university. Following the completion of his studies, Eugene worked in a local R&D institution as an Embedded Systems Engineer for a few years before leaving the company to join Republic Polytechnic. Eugene has been with Republic Polytechnic since 2006 and is now a Senior Academic Staff with the polytechnic. Eugene has done various projects in the polytechnic and a few innovative staff projects implemented by him revolve around Brain-Controlled Interfaces, and have been reported in various media.
Eugene has been teaching PCB modules for a few years and is familiar with various EDA software. Being one of the pioneers in Singapore in using DesignSpark PCB, Eugene has been advocating its use for projects, competitions, and curriculum. The videos created by Eugene is originally targeted at the newer generation of learners in the polytechnic, that prefers watching and learning from a video “walk-through” rather than learning from guidebooks or demonstration. With the encouragement and help from RS Components, Eugene hope that these videos could also reach out to and benefit more users beyond Republic Polyechnic.
