Future of Engineering,
Andrew Gan is a young student interested in computer science and engineering. He aims to develop and apply his knowledge and skills to tackle global issues such as climate change, clean energy, cybersecurity and disinformation.
One of the life lessons Andrew learned when he was young is that people can only excel once they become more self-aware, and make changes when required to meet new expectations and ambitions. He used to study in an arts and humanities focused school, and despite his best efforts, he could not fit in and therefore struggled. He decided to turn the tide by seeking a different learning environment, and ended up switching to a more STEM focused school, where he improved both on an academic and personal basis.
Looking ahead, Andrew has his sights set on contributing to advancing technology for the greater good of humankind and planet. He currently has plans to study engineering abroad, and one day work as a mechanical or software engineer.
