About FabLab

FabLab SP was established and began its operations in 2011 as a result of collaboration among SP's School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), School of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering (MAE), and Singapore Maritime Academy (SMA).

FabLab SP aims to develop and transform SP student to a graduate who is a self-directed learner equipped with deep technical skills and sound knowledge of safety consciousness. It encourages hands-on training using cutting-edge technology in the field of digital fabrication. The FabLab SP also seeks to establish win-win relationships with the community (local as well as international) and industry to help the lab stay connected in order to stay relevant.

FabLab SP operates as a distributed network of Fab spaces across SP Campus. It currently houses equipment such as 2D laser cutters, 3D printers, 3D CNC prototype mill, PCB mills, and electronic workbenches as it aims to be a place where students from across schools work on multi-disciplinary projects.


Makerspace @ Lib

At Singapore Polytechnic Library, Makerspace was created in 2013 to encourage activity-based learning and to transform the library’s image from a place in which resources are consumed to that of a place where works are created.

The space is located in the Library, open to staff and students from all disciplines, from beginners to enthusiasts. Workshops on a variety of technologies (e.g. 3D printing, Arduino, LEDs, 3D design, programming, video making) are run regularly. Other types of programmes include out-of-classroom experience, bootcamp, tech talks, demos of emerging technologies and project advisory service to students. Resources offered include DIY kits, tools, books, videos and online platforms to promote sharing of reusable objects.

To inspire discovery, foster interaction and build connections, we connect our users to maker communities beyond our campus. Being a place of natural convergence of curriculums and communities, Makerspace offers a supportive and non-intimidating atmosphere for discovery, experimentation and co-creation.

We welcome everyone from all disciplines to explore what Makerspace has to offer. We pledge to be inclusive of ideas and people, and also aspire to be a fertile ground for new discoveries and champions of the Maker Movement.

If you have an idea or project to share, please get in touch with our Fab Lab staff. We would be happy to connect your creativity to an audience.
