Talent Development

Attract Seed Nurture

As CREST clearly focuses on growing R&D in key E&E clusters through Industry-Academia collaboration, the Talent Development programmes are streamline into nurturing undergraduate talent to have the relevant skills and experience for these clusters prior to graduation.

Customisation of industry-relevant talent programmes to specific cluster and competency domain areas are an important element of our programmes where we facilitate to bridge the gap between the learning experience in classrooms with early exposure on industry-relevant skills and competencies via workshops, projects and lectures by industry experts.


Project based learning of industry specific skills are driven through TheGreatLab 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).
