Strategic Research Areas
Description
Strategic research areas are essentially where the amalgamation of knowledge, know-how and insights of different engineering disciplines takes place. The ultimate goal for such cross-disciplinary exchanges is to venture into the unknown, tackle the seemingly impossible, create many more “firsts” and invent out-of-the-box solutions. By virtue of these interactions, we can also expect a continuous emergence of new engineering domains in the future, and any collaboration between them may in turn push back the frontiers even further. A wonderful cycle of invention and reinvention, is therefore made possible via research work that strategically combines the wisdom of different engineering disciplines.
