PHILOSOPHY

InnoVenture is the annual, year-long technopreneurship challenge organised by the Institute for Engineering Leadership (IEL) at NUS. Students are challenged to come up with feasible solutions for real engineering problems from real companies. Through the hands-on experiential learning process, students gain insight, confidence, and basic capabilities about the theoretical and practical aspects of engineering leadership and entrepreneurship.

InnoVenture’s goals are simple:

  • To transform classroom learning into real hands-on experience
  • To enable students to work on projects that solve real world needs
  • To build and nurture a supportive community that thinks, invents, and shares 

WHAT’S IN IT FOR STUDENTS?

Students acquire knowledge and skills through experiencing and overcoming the real-life challenges in brainstorming, designing, and prototyping of solutions (“Technical Mastery”), and face-to-face interaction with industry to develop and receive support for their solutions (“Influencing skills”).

WHAT’S THE PROCESS LIKE?

Students will attend bootcamps to acquire knowledge, meet often with industry mentors to enhance their thinking, work with their peers to develop teamwork and leadership skills, and closely connect with the problem statement representatives to gain real-life experience in working with industry.

The year-long program is split up into 2 phases/semesters. Phase 1 will focus on problem solving and design, while Phase 2 will focus on (hardware) prototyping of the proposed solutions and pitching to industry. Leadership and team development will happen throughout Phase 1 and 2.

The set of skills required to solve these problems are diverse and broad, and encourage participants to form teams of 2-4 from multi-disciplinary and multi-graduate levels.

The goal is to create desirable, feasible and viable solutions for the engineering problems provided by real companies.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA AND CREDITS

Students learn key aspects of technopreneurship and, in teams, develop an idea to a solution that includes a business case. Students will become part of a larger innovation and entrepreneurship community in the Faculty of Engineering facilitated through the Institute for Engineering Leadership.

InnoVenture is open to all graduate levels and faculties at NUS. Students are encouraged to form multi-disciplinary teams (2-4 people) as much as possible to enhance creativity and skillset within the team.

Undergraduate students can earn credits (2MC + 2MC) through InnoVenture. To be awarded the credits you must attend all workshops in each phase, complete the short reflection assignments after each workshop, and pitch successfully at IdeaLaunch and/or DemoDay. Please check beforehand that you are able to commit to the workshops in Phase 1 by viewing the schedule below.

If you have any clashes, then please contact r.sie@nus.edu.sg timely before the respective workshop. Students with valid reasons may be excused and/or a separate make-up session can be organized.

In today’s dynamic, technologically-advanced knowledge economy, mere technical competency will not guarantee success within the engineering fields. The next generation of engineer leaders has to possess strong abilities and the skills to communicate, manage, and set direction. A successful engineer must be innovative, resourceful, and entrepreneurial, as well as be able to work and integrate ideas across various disciplines. The Institute for Engineering Leadership (IEL) was set up specifically with this end in mind – to nurture the future leaders of the engineering profession, who will advance the field to the next level and to help create new products, services, and enterprises.
