To scope an area of study for improving Air Quality in Singapore’s hawker centres. An air quality measurement device will be provided (Hawker Centres division of NEA). 2 Carbon Offset Define carbon offset, why is it important, how it is applied, what leading countries and/or organisations are doing, etc. Provide a proposal / implementation plan to SMU’s top management team on using carbon offset in selected operations; e.g. air travel (SMU). 3 Baby Boomer Friendly Mall What is a baby boomer-friendly mall and why is it important to create such malls? How does it work? What are best practices in other countries Singapore could adopt? Develop a needs-based and attractive design proposal / implementation plan for a local mall operator (Shopping Mall in Singapore). 4 SG: A Smart City Using the EU Smart City and the UNDP Sustainable Cities frameworks, evaluate SG as a smart / sustainable city. To objectively present the areas where SG is doing well, and the areas where improvements are needed, incl. challenges faced (Smart Nation Office) 5 Postgrad Training Do a broad research on postgrad training around the work in the topics of smart cities, sustainable cities, urban planning and related topics. Construct a Chatbot (e.g. using Google DialogFlow) that allows a graduating student keen on postgrad training to be able to quickly gather infos (SMU-SIS Deanery). 6 Autonomous Solutions for Singapore’s Cleaning Industry Do research on the extent of using autonomous cleaning equipment in Singapore vis-à-vis an ageing (and insufficiently trained) workforce and reluctance of operators to standardize automated cleaning approaches. Imagine you are a supplier of automated cleaning equipment. What needs to be done to push the industry further towards more automated, autonomous cleaning approaches, incl. greater competitiveness and use of AI (int. cleaning technology firm). 7 Citizen Participation (CP) Does more citizen participation make a city smarter? Define the term and do research on this and similar terms (e.g. Participation in decision-making under Smart Governance in the EU Smart City framework). Why is CP important,e.g. when it comes to participatory design? What are the disadvantages if CP is lacking? Imagine you are a consulting firm contracted by the SG Government to study how other countries/ cities manage CP for maximum results. Based on the history and context of SG, develop a proposal on how a particular unit within the SG Govt system can better manage this in the next ten years (P!D/Participate in Design, Town Council, National Design Centre).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
