| Our Community Design Collaborator |
etc. lab is an interdisciplinary centre for collaborative design and research to create social impact and change.
Founded in 2016 by Ngee Ann Polytechnic's School of Design and Environment, etc.lab envision a better world where they work together in transforming our imaginations into reality. Our mission is to empower communities through design.
Collaborating with practising educational designers, industry partners and government agencies on real-life industry projects, etc.lab believes that design students and graduates will gain invaluable and relevant working experiences that would diversify their design portfolios for educational and professional pursuits.
Through projects, activities and initiatives driven by design labs, etc.lab hopes to make an impact on the lives of the communities and show students that design can make the world a much better place to live in.
