Academic Activities

Engineering Innovation and Design

MA2079 Engineering Innovation and Design is an integral part of the second-year MAE curriculum.  The course aims to provide students an opportunity to innovate. Students are challenged to develop their own high technology business venture, produce a prototype and write a business plan. The Programme culminates in an Open House where all the projects are displayed at an exhibition and judged on their marketing potential and novelty by a panel of industrialists and venture capitalists. Prizes are awarded in each category; past prizes have been generously sponsored by companies such as ST Engineering, Housing and Development Board, Motorola and Farnell Components.

Product Development Challenge

The Product Development Challenge is a platform for students to team up and take on an open-ended project to develop a product such as a race car or a football playing robot. Students participating in the Product Development Challenge will be given the opportunity to showcase their work at international competitions.

Maker Lab @MAE

Maker Lab @MAE is a place for students and staff to innovate and design advanced product. Students from all levels are encouraged to utilize the facilities here to bring your idea into a physical part.  
Through this hands-on experience, we aim to create a MAE community with strong maker culture.
