"From the very beginning, Dr Goh Keng Swee, the architect of Singapore's defence, recognized that only with a superior technological edge can the country overcome the fundamental natural constraints imposed by our small population and small geographical area. We need the best brains in the country to do this…it is critical that our best students develop an interest and passion for defense science and technology."
