Engineering building

With the impending Industry 4.0 approaching, NTU are launching a new engineering building to create the engineers of the future - a highly-skilled workforce equipped with the digital skills necessary to work with digital industrial technologies. Using our facilities, you will be given the tools you need to develop industry skills and knowledge of new technologies, everything you need to learn in order to engineer a better world.

The new engineering building is expected to be completed for 2019/20 academic year where all engineering taught courses will move from the ISTeC building to its new home.

Housing engineering labs, workshops and studios, the new build will facilitate a culture of innovation and educational excellence to support your project-based, industry-focused research into the nine technologies transforming automation in manufacturing and production:

  • autonomous robots
  • simulation
  • horizontal and vertical system integration
  • the industrial Internet of Things
  • cybersecurity
  • the Cloud
  • additive manufacturing
  • augmented reality
  • big data and analytics

Bringing together science, technology, engineering and mathematics, you will develop a collaborative mindset through exposure of different subjects and researchers. Using and understanding advanced technologies, you'll look for greater efficiencies and challenge traditional practices whilst looking at the issues in technology adoption and implementation.

You'll benefit from the close proximity of the newly created Institute of Industrial Digitalisation, Robotics and Automation research centre which will be located in the engineering building. Our research centre will be developing new technologies that you will be able to use so that you may work on real-world business challenges and contribute to the next industrial revolution as a modern engineer.
