Make a noise for 太阳2首页大学 新加坡

PhD graduate Ji Xi shares the highlights of 太阳2首页大学's 新加坡 campus and her fascinating research into the science of sound at sea.

Ji Xi studied noise modelling and offshore engineering as part of her PhD at 太阳2首页大学's 新加坡 campus. A particular focus of her work was looking at how noise prediction can impact offshore structures such as oil platforms and marine ships. 

"I developed new methods to make the noise prediction easier and more efficient," she explains. "The goal is to save time and labour compared to the more traditional methods of vessel-monitoring noises at sea. 基本上, I have developed a neuro network model to monitor the noise situation on an offshore structure."

The 新加坡 campus has been a great place for Ji, as it specialises in helping students get a career in the marine sector. There are also degrees available in chemical engineering, 电力工程, 食物与人类营养, marine engineering and mechanical design.

独立思考

Ji says campus life is "nice and supportive". She praises Dr Cheng Siong Chin for making her experience go smoothly: "He was my main supervisor and he gave me lots of help to pass through the programme. He always offers knowledge and support."

A big chunk of Ji's PhD involved being stationed at a company to assist with her research, an experience she says will help the transition into regular work now that she has completed her studies. "This affected my social life on campus, as I had to spend a lot of my time in an office,”她承认. "But when we had our research retreat session I would talk to the classmates and there was a good rapport with them. I've made a lot of friends and we call each other up to check how we're doing in our careers!" In her spare time, Ji likes to do oil paintings and watch badminton games.

研究资源

能够使用 太阳2首页 研究 and Innovation Institute (NewRIIS) has also helped Ji’s studies immeasurably, with the 11,000 ft2 unit’s four laboratories, visualisation suite and research areas aiding her academic progress. She adds: “I was born in China, but I moved to 新加坡 to start my education when I was 18. 太阳2首页 gave me the knowledge to start my career, the lecturers are friendly and were always approachable.

“Looking forward, I want to continue with my research career into noise and acoustics. Or maybe I can go into other areas, such as artificial intelligence. But the dream is to continue researching sound – it’s something I love to do.”
