FYP Innovation Award
The NUS School of Computing (SoC) is pleased to announce the FYP Innovation Award. The Award is to recognise students who have developed innovative, practical and commercialisable ideas with the potential of substantial real-world impact.
SoC invites students enrolled for the FYP to compete for the FYP Innovation Award. The competition is open to students completing CA in Semester 1 of AY 12/13 and also to those students who have completed their FYP in semester 1 of AY 12/13.
The successful awardee will win a cash prize of S$2,000.
The Singapore Infocomm Technology Federation (SiTF) has expressed an interest to review promising projects for its 123JumpStart programme which can fund each selected project up to $250,000. The funding will enable individuals or start-ups to embark on Proof of Concept (POC) for their innovative ideas.
The Final Year Project (FYP) is one of the most important single pieces of work in the undergraduate programme at SoC. It provides the opportunity for students to demonstrate their individuality and inspiration, independence and originality, innovativeness and impact on the real world.
