Once again, the Annual Networking Event of the Year has arrived for 2015! Held at 5star Hotel Mandarin Oriental, this year’s edition was a special one. A full delegate of 30 UOM-A*Star programme PhD Students attended our networking event as it coincides with another function hosted by A*Star prior to this event. The event was oversubscribed and attendance was well over 130pax.
First up, we have Professor Martin Humphries, Vice President & Dean of the Faculty of Life Sciences give us an update on the University latest development.
Next up we have a panel discussion on the topic ”Manchester's Impact on Singapore”. This topic is certainly befitting and no doubt on everyone’s mind as we discuss and reflect on the positive impact the University of Manchester & its students has bring about as Singapore celebrate its 50th Jubilee Birthday this year.
The speakers starting from the left are namely:
- Professor John Costello – University of Manchester-Singapore Institute of Technology, Nursing Program Director
- Professor Stephen Flint – Associate Dean Internationalisation for the Faculty of Engineering & Physical Sciences
- Professor Martin Humphries, Vice President & Dean for the Faculty of Life Sciences
- Alex Chan (Moderator) – UOMaaS Treasurer & Business Owner

We are pleased to conclude another successful networking event for the Alumni Community in Singapore. We hope everyone had a fruitful night and also to see you and your friends at our next event soon!
