Jingkang graduated from telecommunications engineering in 2007 and now works as an executive engineer at the SP PowerGrid (Singapore). He completed postgraduate study at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
He says he may never have moved to Singapore if it weren’t for the advice he received from from friends and tutors at XJTLU. He also benefitted from XJTLU’s external mentor programme, saying his mentor helped him a lot and has had a continued influence on him.
During his time at XJTLU Jingkang learnt the benefits of smart working and of having a clear goal for your hard work: “I found out that the way you work hard is much more important than hardworking itself,” he says. “Once you have decided what you want to do, you have to be responsible for it and not quit easily, as success is not always achieved immediately.”
Jingkang highlights XJTLU’s international platform and networking opportunities as among the best things about studying here. He also met many lifelong friends and wishes all the best to current XJTLU students: “I hope every XJTLU student has starlight in their eyes, sunshine in their hands, dreams in their heart and a future beneath their feet,” he says.
