Zac Yeow Jian Zhe
Class of 2020
Hello! I’m Zac & I graduated from Ngee Ann Polytechnic with a Diploma in Environmental & Water Technology aka Environmental Engineering. I co-founded a photography company called Flotography, and I’ve worked since my teenage years as a Sound Engineer in an event engineering company. My other interests include painting, sketching, cooking, diving, and DJ’ing.
How does all this relate to Environmental Studies? My passion for the environment was nurtured by my diploma work, which involved the design of purifying air, noise and water; learning to engineer the ABC Water features in Singapore; and completing a Final Year Project on food composting. I’ve also done fine arts (acrylic painting) until I was 15, after which I switched to photography, and my interest in the arts has never stopped. During my personal time I shoot landscapes in hope of bringing environmental messages to the community (e.g. photo of the location with clean air vs haze). I intend to continue integrating my art with meaningful messages to my community.
Within the broad field of environmental studies I am especially interested in green technology, reflecting my knowledge of engineering and my overall “tech savvy.” My dream is to own a restaurant that’s a cafe in the afternoon and a bar at night, and that’s powered by renewable energy and uses only products sourced from sustainable providers.
Fun-fact, I am a certified Noise Monitoring Officer.
