Committed to developing high-quality and extensive materials research, the New Materials Technology Centre (NMTC) at Republic Polytechnic (RP) aims to innovate through use of technology to support Singapore’s manufacturing sector.
The NMTC is also dedicated and equipped to address complex problems that various industries such as agriculture, health, specialty chemicals, environment, energy, electronics, composites and chemicals, experience in Singapore.
The key benefits of discovering and developing new materials and analysis have enabled advances in emerging technologies such as energy generation and saving, sustainable materials, additive manufacturing, advanced composites and nanotechnology. Materials research can also contribute to economic growth by lowering the cost, reducing the waste and enhancing the performance of established technologies, such as consumer electronics, building materials, energy harvest materials, sustainable materials and specialty chemicals.
Over the years, the NMTC has also worked on several government-related companies/projects such as the Singapore Totalisator Board, Ministry of Education Translational & Innovation Fund, NAMIC and National Research Foundation. We have also hosted several funded programmes in collaboration with SMEs, MNCs, IHLs and Research Labs for the discovery, advancement and implementation of new technologies.
