Past Projects


  • 2013
    (1st run)

    Prototyping Incubator

    NUS, Engineering Design & Innovation Center, FOE

    Principal Investigators: Ian Gibson
    Entrepreneurial Leads: Jian Huei, Mohit, Edmund, Wei Jie

    Project description: The Engineering Design & Innovation Centre wishes to provide a facility that will support innovative products through technology development. Central to this is 3D Printing, which combines with other platform technologies (like microntrollers, laser cutting, CNC and assembled parts) to create numerous products and business opportunities. We need to know how to offer this within the NUS environment and outreach to potential beneficiaries and with the best chances of success.

    PV Frame

    Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS)

    Principal Investigators: Timothy Michael Walsh, Head, Off-Grid PV Systems, SERIS
    Entrepreneurial Lead 1: Yi Jinzhou
    Entrepreneurial Lead 2: Divya Jain
    Team members: Chai Jing, Srinath Nalluri, Khoo Yong Sheng, Jai Prakash

    Project description: This integrated framing system will provide the role of both the frame and the junction box, streamline the production process for PV modules. This approach is unique because the current state-of-the-art of PV module manufacturing requires three separate components and processes (the busses, the frame and the junction box) all of which are incorporated into the integrated framing system. The parts consolidation and improved process flow will reduce manufacturing costs for PV module manufacturers.

    Metal Sentinel (GHSPR)

    NUS, Dept of Chemistry & Ngee Ann Poly, EWTCOI

    Principal Investigators: Assoc. Prof Sam Li Fong Yau & Dr Koh Lee Chew, Senior Manager R&D Engineer
    Entrepreneurial Leads: Lin Junyu, Chee Siang

    Project description: The novel sensor is based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR) coupled to Goos Hanchen (GH) effect, which allows the enhancement and direct measurement of GH shift. The novel sensor system will provide a new option for rapid, sensitive chemical and biochemical analysis, with many advantages over the current methods of heavy metals measurement in liquids. The product will allow monitoring with minimal interference from environment.

    Team Super Silk

    Republic Poly, School of Applied Science

    Principal Investigators: Tan Cheak Khan Willy
    Entrepreneurial Leads: Daryl Chew, Sum
    Team members: Tong Yu, Hazel

    Project description: The process subjects Bombyx Mori (B.Mori) silkworms to a patented method and was scaled up and used to produce silk with increased strength (+49%), strain (+2.2%), breaking energy (+55.1%) and elastic modulus (+39%), when  compared to normal silk. The “enhanced silk” can be spun and reeled into yarn, and then woven into fabric using a variety of weaving patterns.
