Singh Imagineering Laboratory
Learn More about the Imagineering Competition
Students are taking their ideas for innovations that will impact people and society and using the Singh Imagineering Lab to make them a reality, competing to win some serious prize money.
Empowering Students to Innovate Solutions
The Binoy K. Singh Imagineering Laboratory gives students the resources to take on extracurricular engineering initiatives and think about new ways to address society’s challenges. The Singh Imagineering Lab provides easy access to entrepreneurially minded College of Engineering students, and other BU students working with them, without limiting the topic or timeframe of use. Using the lab’s tools and machinery -- and guidance from faculty, graduate students and undergraduate peers -- students are encouraged to pursue their ideas and designs. Where applicable, they can take projects to the prototype stage and enter them in design competitions. And where feasible, they will be encouraged to take on partners from BU’s School of Management, work on plans to potentially commercialize their products and enter them in business competitions.
