Marina Bay
9 March - 1 April 2018

​In order to foster interdisciplinary and collaborative learning across NTU, Asst. Prof. Kristy H.A. Kang developed an experimental applied learning experience for students in the School of Art Design and Media (ADM) and The School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEM) to work together across courses and schools.  Four teams comprising students in ADM's “User Experience in Design” course in collaboration with students from Prof. Chua Hock Chuan's IEM "Design and Innovation" course developed proposals for the 2018 edition of the iLight Marina Bay festival.  The projects were formally presented at the URA and two out of four were invited to represent NTU and participate in iLight 2018.

With the support of the URA and iLight festival organizers, a team of NTU faculty and staff including Profs. Peer Satikh, Laura Miotto, Jeffrey Hong, and the NTU Museum helped the students to develop their proposals from concept to fabrication and exhibition for iLight 2018
