A device comprising a heating strap which is connected to a vibration unit. Heat and vibration are commonly used methods to help relieve muscle discomfort. A rechargeable battery is housed inside the vibration unit and it provides power for both the heating and vibration. It is a flexible product, providing convenience to the user, as the user can attach it to the body location where there is muscle discomfort, e.g. at an arm, at a leg, at the neck, etc. The design comes with a few colours for the users to choose from.
A PPE headgear with powered ventilation that draws in air through an inlet with a proper filter and drives out air via an exit outlet. This PPE headgear can be used together with common types of PPE body suit. The ventilation inside the PPE headgear provides enhanced comfort by reducing the heat and moisture and providing fresh filtered air. It also prevents fog forming on the inside of the PPE headgear, thus improving visibility for the user. These will increase the efficiency and wellbeing of the user. Proper sealing material is used, and the slightly higher pressure inside the PPE headgear than the atmosphere helps to prevent leakage.
A hands-free crutch, based on the concept that allows the user to move without needing to remove parts of the crutch!
Develop a hands-free crutch, based on the concept behind bionic prosthetic legs. Incorporating more joints to mimic natural leg movements, Christine fine-tuned her design to make the crutch hands-free, improve its flexibility and allow for adjustments at the knee, ankle and foot.
This conceptual initiation aims to promote the love of music, infusing music as part of the activities and the growth of young and old musicians. The design seeks fluidity and freedom by creating inspiring spaces that foster cultivation of music making and appreciation.
Visual Arts Incubator is designed to facilitate the coexistence of different art communities and the public in local Art & Culture and through educational, sharing and creation spaces.

A gardening set with a hanger that can be hung onto the HDB corridor wall, and plant pot sets with each set comprising a soil pot, a reservoir pot and a wick. The wick is soaked in the water in the reservoir pot and it allows water to move from the reservoir pot up into the soil pot. The separate soil pot and reservoir pot design makes maintenance easier. The plant pot sets come in two sizes – a square set and a rectangular set. The user can decide to buy the desired number of plant pot sets. The array of holes in the hanger provides flexibility for hanging the plant pot sets. The user can arrange the plant pot sets in the pattern he or she wishes.
A collaboration project between Ngee Ann Polytechnic and Nee Soon Town Council. Inspired by Japanese industrial design, PELIT aims to improve productivity and safety for the workers with modern technology.
In collaboration with Homesofhomes, Danish Home is a range of Scandinavian style wood furniture that is simple, aesthetic and ergonomically designed.
A desktop “study buddy” with aromatherapy function and which alerts the user to take a break after a pre-set time. Desirable aromatic plant extract oil can be added to the product, and the aroma will be dispensed when the product is switched on. A mobile app has been designed which allows the user to set the duration to alert the user to take a break (e.g. 1 hour). When it is time for the user to take a break, the “ears” of the study buddy will turn into a different colour to alert the user.
"HLFM is a great start to the hospitality and facilities management industry because of the breadth and depth of learning. My experiences were something XTRA and I am glad that the skills I learned in this diploma helped me get to where I am today. I will always be grateful for the many learning opportunities given to me as a student."
"HLFM brings me fond memories that I hold close to my heart. The wide range of industry-related modules taught by the friendly and engaging lecturers provided me with a holistic learning experience and insights into the front-of-the-house and back-of-the-house operations of the hospitality industry. It also introduced me to the management of the built environment sector. I am confident that I will be able to apply what I have learnt in HLFM to my undergraduate studies and future career."
“PDI introduced me to a human-centered way of problem solving. Learning to grasp this model of thinking was pivotal to my journey and growth in the field of design and it is an indispensable part of any designer's practice. This allows me to further my education with a Bachelor’s in Design Communication on a Scholarship and later on to pursue my passion for social and public service as a Service Designer.”*From AY2020, PDI and SDE have been merged to form DES (Diploma in Design)

I embarked on site visits which helped me visualize the lessons taught in class, as well as overseas internships which allowed me to challenge myself and gain first-hand work experience with my interning company at Capitaland, Ascott China. Moreover, I have passionate lecturers whom are amazing educators both in class and in life."
“In REB, I was guided by lecturers with abundant industry experience and gained knowledge in Real Estate and Business disciplines. I learnt to step out of my comfort zone to take on opportunities that honed and developed my leadership skills. With the Internship and Industry Mentor Network programme, I gained real-world work experiences and got to network with professionals.”
“I am a strong believer in hard work and grit. To me, life is not just about choosing what I love to do, but also choosing what to do with what I am given. I chose SDE out of passion and worked hard at it. My efforts paid off when I graduated with a diploma with merit.”
