Technology Development & Innovation


Our Focus Area


Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering

Ngee Ann Polytechnic works on problem statements from industries and incorporate new technologies, improved processes and management methods in product creation. We leverage on emerging technologies in additive manufacturing, automation, robotics and industrial IoT (Internet of things) in the manufacturing landscape.

Ngee Ann Polytechnic is keen to work with industry in R&D projects to drive innovation and advance technology that may be translated to products and services. The Polytechnic has diverse technical capabilities and access to different public R&D grants. Examples of R&D projects are given here.

  1. Digital Stereoscopy Microscope (DSM)
  2. Lensless Digital Holographic Microscope for MEMS Inspection
  3. Development of Scaffold Coupler Maintenance Machine
  4. Dust-Free Robotic Grit Blasting System
  5. Pulling Device for Cable Installation on Cable Tray
  6. AI-enabled​ FOllow-me Mobile Robotic Assistant (AIFO)
