Myanmar

  • The largest number of alumni are in Myanmar.
    Some worked in Myanmar.
    Some worked overseas, but returned to Myanmar after retirement.
  • During the Adhamma Era, there was no Alumni Association in Myanmar.
    The Alumni in the US and Singapore set up Alumni Associations with the major objective of holding Reunion and Saya Pu Zaw Pwes in 2000 (in the US) and 2002 (in Singapore).
  • SPZP-2004 was held in December, 2004 in Yangon about the same time as the ASEAN Engineering Conference.
    The mild earth quake did not deter the attendees.
  • There were hopes that Yangon could continue to hold SPZP in 2006 and beyond.
    The change in the political climate in Myanmar dashed the hopes.
    Singapore Alumni hosted SPZPs in April 2007 and December 2010.
    The two year interval between the SPZPs had gone up to two and a half years.
  • H.E. U Aye Myint (EP72) never forgot his roots and his alma mater.
    Requested help from the sayas and alumni to help our beloved alma mater to former glory.
