Engineering the Future
Lumlertluksanachai Yotsapat (Art)
Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering
The University of Newcastle, Australia
With at least four awards* under his belt and part of the Executive Committee of three student organisations^ including being the President of the Thai Student Society of Singapore under the Royal Thai Embassy, ‘outstanding’ would be an understatement to describe Art’s achievements.
As a teenager, with a keen interest in music, Art constantly experimented with various musical instruments to discover his musicality. He is also particularly gifted in physics and mathematics evident from his consistently excellent grades obtained in high school.
Art enrolled for the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Electrical) offered by The University of Newcastle, Australia as it allowed him to pursue both of his interests at the same time. He sees himself working in the Research & Development arm of international musical instrument brands and his goal is to give artists greater creative freedom through modern technology. UON is today the Top 10 University in Australia and the Top 12 University in Australia for Engineering and Technology#.
His student life was nothing short of eventful. Art was the Manager of the Music Club, the President of the Thai-Laos Student Association, and the President of the Thai Student Society which afforded him opportunities to expand his social circle internationally and taught him leadership and management skills; both of which are beneficial for when he joins the workforce.
The robust course complemented Art’s strengths well and brought out his fullest potential. In 2015, Art was awarded the Dean’s Merit List for Outstanding Student Scholarship Award by The University of Newcastle, Australia – given only to the top student of the cohort of his faculty. Most recently, Art joined a competition ‘Business Model Innovation Hackathon’ set for by Bosch in Asia Pacific and his team won the top prize for Boldest Business Model Idea.
Art has just concluded his three-month Industrial Experience Placement at a German multinational engineering and electronics company and is in the midst of completing his Final Year Engineering Project. Under his mentor from UON Dr Hassan Ali’s supervision, he came up with a fully functional innovative IoT smart energy metering device with a wireless network sending captured data to the IBM Watson platform.
As his student journey nears its completion, Art is gearing up for the industry by understanding the latest trends and direction companies and the government are taking for the future. Art is from Thailand and he is a Future Maker – you can be one too.
