Development of Future Communications Connectivity Lab at SUTD and Future Communications Translation Lab at SIT
Grant calls for R&D and translation of future communications technologies
Support for local talent pursuing research in communications and connectivity
International Partnership for future communications technologies such as 6G
We’re the game development team under the Singapore University of Technology and Design Game Lab. The SUTD Game Lab was formerly known as the Singapore branch of the Singapore-MIT GAMBIT Game Lab, which created the award-winning games CarneyVale: Showtime, Snap Escape and Dark Dot, among others.
The Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities (LKYCIC) is a research institute in the Singapore University of Technology and Design. The Centre seeks to stimulate thinking and research on the critical issues of cities and urbanisation and explore the integrated use of technology, design and policy to provide urban solutions.
The Measurement Technologies Laboratory (MTL) is a product of the collaboration between SUTD and Keysight, which saw Keysight donating S$8 million worth of cutting-edge equipment for education and research purposes. The intent of the collaboration was to allow SUTD researchers and Keysight R&D specialists to explore and prototype new electronics test and measurement solutions – an initiative under Keysight’s Singapore Research and Development Centre of Excellence (COE). These technologies are critical to the efficient, optimal functioning of many industries, including aerospace, engineering, manufacturing and defence.
The National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC) was established to generate economic outcome from R&D by accelerating technology translation from public sector R&D performers into new products & services for commercialisation by enterprises. NAMIC’s aim is to develop an interconnected network of research performers and industry players to actively develop new additive manufacturing (AM) technologies for industry adoption.
ST Engineering and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) have, since Dec 2015, established the ST Engineering-SUTD Centre for Smart Systems. As a leading centre in translational R&D, the centre researches and develops innovative solutions in the form of frontier Smart System technologies, which aim to improve the quality of life for citizens in Smart Cities and contribute to sustainable living.
The ST Engineering – SUTD Cyber Security Laboratory is jointly funded by ST Engineering, Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and the National Research Foundation under the Corp Lab @ University Scheme. The S$44.3 million Laboratory aims to advance and translate frontiers of cyber security research and technology into industry relevant solutions and products and in the process, build up the cyber security capabilities and number of professionals in support of Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative.
SUTD and the Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore signed an MOU in November 2017 to establish the SUTD-LTA Transport Research Centre (TRC) in SUTD to address current and future challenges in the transport sector. The research centre leverages SUTD’s expertise to focus on issues pertinent to Singapore, such as ageing population, land scarcity and rising travel demand for public transport. Both parties collaborate in joint research and development as well as capability building and training activities and projects for the benefit of future land transport in Singapore.
Temasek Laboratories @ Singapore University of Technology and Design (TL@SUTD) was established collaboratively between the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) in October 2012 to undertake cutting-edge research and development for potential defence applications, while building up both technical and human talent capabilities in critical research areas.
