ELECTIVES

These are some of our electives in Singapore Polytechnic that FabLab works closely with.

Digital Fabrication & Prototyping Fundamentals (EP1000) - FabLab Elective

Eligibility: For all students

The elective is organised around a self-directed project where students develop design thinking and prototyping skills. Students will be guided through a design thinking process followed by the development of a functional prototype. Students will apply design and digital fabrication processes for developing a functional prototype that integrates these processes. Students will practice these skills in a design studio setting. 

Further Digital Fabrication & Prototyping (EP1001) - FabLab Elective

Eligibility: For all students with a pass in EP1000

This elective module builds on the fundamentals of digital fabrication and prototyping learned in module EP1000, and they will be exposed to a greater variety and deeper knowledge of digital fabrication machines and technology. The module is organised around a self-directed project which students will design and fabricate in the FabLab. Working in groups, students will be guided through the project development process followed by the implementation of a functional prototype. Students will apply the design and fabrication process for developing a functional prototype that integrates both mechanical, electronics, and embedded programming technologies. Students acquire further digital fabrication skills that enable them to produce creative and innovative solutions to challenges faced. Examples include internships, final year projects, and grad shows.

Transdisciplinary Innovation Project (EP0803) - MAD Elective

Eligibility: For all students

This module equips students to work in transdisciplinary teams and develop working solutions for a live industry partner. Industry experts will collaborate and mentor the teams as part of the solutioning process. Through this module students will also be exposed to design processes, innovation and entrepreneurial vigour. This 100% in-course assessment module comprises both individual and group work.
