Why is HASS Part of the Curriculum?
Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS) subjects complement the technical subjects to provide students with a grounding in the practice of inquiry, analysis, interpretation, and presentation. This integration of disciplines nurture leaders who are deeply aware of the social role and impacts of innovations in the fields of technology and design.

Student Projects

The Capstone (or final year) project is a collaboration between companies and senior year students. Students of different majors come together to work in teams and contribute their technology and design expertise to solve real-world challenges faced by companies. The Capstone project will culminate with a design showcase, unveiling the interdisciplinary innovations from the graduating cohort.
