NTU WKWSCI: Engage is an outreach initiative that serves as a platform for Wee Kim Wee School of Communication & Information (WKWSCI) students to engage with the communications industry. Through partnerships with key industry players and alumni, students with leadership potential are given opportunities to connect with leading professionals and go beyond the classroom for situated learning. By equipping them with the necessary skills, insights and opportunities, the committee purposes to help WKWSCI students gain inside access to the industry and excel in their communication pursuits.
By students, for students, NTU WKWSCI: Engage is advised by Ms. Wong Pei Wen, a lecturer at the WKW School.
A Message from the Committee:
WKWSCI is committed to nurturing a future generation of highly adaptable communication leaders who can take up global challenges both within and outside of the communications industry. In line with the school’s mission, NTU WKWSCI: Engage is led by an executive committee of student leaders from the WKW School who have a passion to shape the future of communication through continued education and collaboration.
Founded in 2016, the committee has since partnered with leading communication agencies, secured valuable networking opportunities with industry practitioners, and organised an inaugural communication-centered conference to keep our students on the frontiers of industry developments.
Now in its fourth iteration, the Engage committee has reimagined its suite of offerings to include student engagement events, industry mentorship programmes, and a thought leadership resource bank.
Our annual launch event, The Big Scoop, provides a platform for final-year WKW students who have completed their professional internships to share insights and experiences, helping juniors gain a better understanding of the communications industry.
Mentor is our newly-launched initiative that seeks to connect students to industry mentors and alumni, building a culture of mentorship and increasing the visibility of WKWSCI and its students within the industry.
This year, the team is also proud to introduce Engage with NTU WKWSCI, a thought leadership platform where communication professionals across various industries share insights surrounding the central theme: "Communication in a Transformative Era" to help our students and alumni see the game ahead. In addition, Engage with NTU WKWSCI aspires to serve as a springboard for more discussions between budding communication professionals and those in leadership positions.
The Engage with NTU WKWSCI initiative extends from past conferences with themes including "Harnessing Technology in Communication", and "Navigating the Digital Economy: Storytelling, Trends and Millenials".
In the face of unprecedented challenges, digital disruption, and an ever-evolving media landscape, NTU WKWSCI: Engage hopes to bring together industry professionals to cultivate a deeper understanding of trends and insights, as well as give our students the necessary exposure to be on the forefront of changes and developments in the Communications industry.
