Education Fair : Science-based specialties

The working world is a myriad of opportunities and adventures, and tertiary studies are merely an avenue to help get you there.
Instead of scratching your head trying to decide which course to take, get to know the people who are already in their chosen fields and see what they have to say.
The entire StarEducation pullout on the first and second Sunday in January will be dedicated to featuring various science and arts-related careers as food for thought, featuring professions ranging from a fashion stylist to a disaster risk reduction officer.
What about the people behind the scenes in today’s high-flying world? We speak to a pilot and an aircraft maintenance engineer to get a glimpse into the world behind the big flying machines.
If you are heading down the medical line, consider what the plastic surgeon has to say about his line of work in the medical profession. You may be surprised at just how this science-based profession can become an art in itself.
Many have also chosen to turn their hobby and passion into a career, and we approach a pottery instructor and shoe designer, among others, to tell their story.
For those who simply can’t get enough of numbers, becoming a statistician could be the perfect job, as you discover new facts to contribute to society.
After getting a rough idea of the countless possibilities, take the next step and seek the qualifications you need at the 23rd Star Education Fair, to be held on Jan 8 and 9 from 11am to 7pm at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
With over 540 booths, the biggest education fair in the country features an array of education institutions, professional bodies, higher education agencies and education centres which will provide visitors with information on a wide range of courses and options – both locally and abroad.
There will be a new line-up of experts speaking about career trends and study options in medicine, engineering, architecture and law.
Other highlights include talks on selecting the right pre-university programmes and funding for tertiary education.
The fair will also feature many educational institutions, professional bodies, higher education agencies and education centres which will provide students and their parents with information on a wide range of courses and options, both locally and abroad.
In Penang, the fair will be held on Feb 19 and 20 at the Penang International Sports Arena (Pisa).
Admission is free.
