As CREST clearly focuses on growing R&D in key E&E clusters through Industry-Academia collaboration, the Talent Development programmes streamline into nurturing the undergraduate talents at universities to have the relevant skills and experience for these clusters prior to graduation. Customisation of industry-relevant talent programme to specific cluster and competency domain areas is an important element of our programmes where we facilitate to bridging the gap between students learning in the classroom with early exposure on industry-relevant skills and competencies via workshops, projects and lectures by industry experts. visit our facebook page

The Great Lab

Project based learning of industry specific skills are driven through The Great Lab where students from any discipline and year of study have the opportunity to develop their own ideas into Proof of Concept (PoC) by solving specific industry problems and challenges during their internship period. These industry problems and challenges are also made available for students to pursue their design projects, final year projects and even postgraduate research (MSc or PhD).

Industry-driven topics are offered to interested students through our Blended Learning platform, TGL Finishing School, where students are acquiring the necessary skills required by industry through a mix of self-directed online learning and in-classroom tutorials and technical sharing by industry experts.

Youth Programme

In nurturing innovative, creative thinking and problem solving skills that would be relevant when young talents graduate and are ready to contribute to the industry, we offer ideation workshop and industry challenges to talents at both university and high school levels.
