Organised by the NTU School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), the one-day EEE Expo will showcase the school’s work to help build the four pillars of Singapore’s new economy: Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering; Health and Biomedical Sciences; Services and Digital Economy; and Urban Solutions and Sustainability.

These four sectors were identified by the Singapore government in its latest, five-year Research, Innovation and Enterprise (RIE) 2020 Plan for the country. The government has pledged $19 billion over five years for the plan to help keep Singapore at the forefront of research and development (R&D).

The EEE Expo will feature a variety of the school’s R&D projects that can help realise the RIE 2020 vision of a knowledge-based and innovation-driven economy and society in Singapore. Prospective students and investors as well as companies will also find much to interest them at the expo.

From a new medical kit to rapidly detect diseases to an intelligent traffic system to prevent congestions, research projects to help transform Singapore’s economy and improve people’s lives will be on display at Nanyang Technological University’s (NTU) Nanyang Auditorium on March 13, 2017.


As Singapore moves up the manufacturing chain, new and more hi-tech sectors will become indispensable to its economy. These include the aerospace, electronics, chemicals, machinery and systems, marine and offshore, precision modules and components, biologics and pharmaceuticals, and medical technology industries.


In Singapore, where one in five people is expected to be aged 65 or older by 2030, healthcare will take on increasing importance. The biomedical sector is also a significant contributor to Singapore’s manufacturing sector. We need new and innovative healthcare services, drugs and devices that will boost people’s well-being and keep our healthcare system sustainable.


Advances in technology are changing the way we travel, monitor our health and provide services. Cars could drive themselves. Wearable devices could alert us to health problems. Automation could free us up to take on more meaningful work.


To uphold Singapore's reputation as a vibrant and endearing city, we also need to rethink how we use our roads and other spaces. We need to look into different transport modes and better harmonise our built and natural environments.

Visit us at the EEE Expo and stand a chance to win attractive prizes such as IPAD MINI 4, FITBIT Charge 2 and many more at the lucky draw!

Free shuttle service from Pioneer MRT Station to Nanyang Auditorium is available from 10.00am to 4.30pm.
