Management - The Engineering Design Studio

The Engineering Design Studio

The Engineering Design Studio is a one-stop facility for students to actualise their ideas through the design process. It integrates the Design Thinking process and engineering principles with a hands-on, prototyping approach in dedicated spaces and features, supported by up-to-date equipment and technology. Dedicated spaces are incorporated in the Engineering Design Studio for each stage of the Design Thinking process, comprising of: Ideation, Imagineering, Prototyping, Fabrication and Actualization. Students will discover new product opportunities and bring their ideas to life in a supportive environment.
