Inspiring advanced technology workshops

The thematic workshops enable students to get in touch with advanced technologies and learn from the faculty members who are experts in the related areas and apply what they have learnt to tackle the grand challenges in the world. For example, in the workshop about new and advanced materials, there is a research-grade 3D Printer that uses micro stereolithography technology to produce highly precise parts with a resolution in micron scale. The workshop on generative AI technologies offers high-performance computing devices and access to cloud computing resources to facilitate the learning and development of advanced AI applications for social good.

Turning idea into reality

Innovation Wing is equipped with comprehensive prototyping facilities and equipment for students to turn ideas into reality. It offers a spacious assembling area with state-of-the-art digitally controlled facilities, such as 3D printers, laser cutting and engraving machines, waterjet cutting machine, measuring tools, hand/power toolsets, and specialised electronic workbenches, for our students to work on their hands-on projects. The digital innovation zone includes a computer-aided design studio, multimedia and podcast studio, and AR/VR studio to support students’ innovation with digital technology.
