we are etc.lab
We are 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, we envision a better world where we 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, we believe our 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 our design labs, we hope to make an impact on the lives of our communities and show our students that design can make the world a much better place to live in.

We hope to promote entrepreneurship and innovation in design for our students and staff through industry collaboration projects
