Can’t wait for the future and want to be ready for a technology-driven new world? Under the Future City Programme, a pan-polytechnic initiative to groom the next generation of talent for future city projects, our students can learn from experts across design and engineering industries through internships, learning journeys and mentorship talks.
Over my four-month internship, I worked on highly confidential projects strengthening security against unauthorised drones. My deeper understanding of drone technology will give me a head start in contributing to future city projects when I graduate.

My social circle expanded after joining a CCA. I made friends with seniors and even alumni who came back to share their experiences. Having fun with friends who share my passion for skating and learning new skills is a great way to de-stress!Tung Jing Qi, Inline Skating
Some might think of squash as stress relief, as you can hit the ball - however hard you want - to vent your frustrations! Squash trains a player's creativity, patience and precision. During the hectic semester, squash keeps me fit and healthy as I enjoy the sport with friends from other schools.Ong Zheng Ting, Squash

As part of their service-learning project in Tasikmalaya, Indonesia, Product Design & Innovation students from the School of Design & Environment designed furniture for a kindergarten with the locals’ feedback.
Travelling to do research and creating prototypes with traditional materials reinforced the importance of design and how our designs can make a great impact. I gained exposure in both my education and character development.
