In our pursuit to bridge the gap between academia and industry, Taylor's Department of Engineering has forged strategic alliances with members of the engineering community, setting in place mutually beneficial partnerships with industry leaders.
The dynamic knowledge exchange that takes place at our Department enables our students to gain insight on current developments and issues affecting the engineering practice. It also equips our graduates to hit the ground running in solving the Grand Challenges for the future.
From an industry perspective, the Department serves as an ideation lab and a gateway to innovation, talent and research activities.
The programmes taught at Department of Engineering are kept relevant through our close association with members of the industry, who form the Department's Industry Advisory Panel (IAP). The panel meet regularly with our faculty members to review and refine our curriculum and programme content, ensuring that our curriculum remains relevant and in-line with the industry’s demands. Our IAP members consist of leading local and multinational corporations:
The Professional Engineering Lecture Series or PELS, is a platform that links our students with the engineering community, through insightful talks and lectures delivered by industry members. Through this programme, we have invited speakers from leading local and multinational companies to speak about the engineering profession and share their engineering experience with our students.
Our students are given the opportunity to visit engineering firms and companies, to observe a spectrum of processes. This gives them a first-hand feel and insight into the real world of engineering. Students can also interact with members of the respective organisations during their visits, adding further value to their education.
