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.
