Sustainability@TP - Collaboration
A key cornerstone of TP's educational philosophy is preparing students to be industry relevant. Our facilities on campus are developed to simulate up-to-date industry operations, and some take the form of Centres of Excellence that are developed in collaboration with industry. Besides giving our students hands-on learning opportunities, these facilities also enable us to provide consultancy services and collaborate on joint projects with our industry partners.
Integrative Built Environment Centre (IBEC)
This Centre provides future-ready and industry-relevant training and solutions for the built environment sector. This includes regulatory, upskilling and transformational training as well as the co-creation of smart and innovative solutions together with industry partners, to build a smart and sustainable future.
Clean Energy Research Centre (CERC)
This Centre proliferates and employs technologies from Advanced Energy Conversion & Storage, Smart Power Systems, and Energy Sensors & Analytics to co-create innovative solutions to mitigate climate change and ensure sustainability for our future.
Centre for Urban Sustainability (CUS)
CUS focuses on two R&D thrusts of Solid Waste Management and Recycling for Strategic Building Materials, and Food Waste Reduction and Recycling.
With the mission to achieve sustainability in resource management and production through material innovation, CUS capabilities include R&D at the national level; value-added industry engagement; and alignment of research and service with education.
BeyonDesign Centre (BDC)
Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the BeyonDesign Centre uses design to harness new opportunities that are presented by technological, cultural and social changes in ways that are community-centric and cause-driven. The Centre will pursue collaborations, projects and research with our stakeholders, peer institutions, industry partners and the design community at large to use good design to help solve the issues of the world, design smarter cities, focusing on sustainable energy, safer buildings, richer experiences, better systems, strategies and new ways of living. The Centre facilitates, teaches and exposes Design students to the co-creation processes to go beyond the call of design, to do good and to do what is needed to improve and touch the lives of the community we live in.
