Origin of EPIC Engineering Comic
The Origin

EPIC signifies Experiential, Paired, Inquiry-based, and Collective learning. This is a modern teaching approach Dr Ang developed for engineering curriculum. 

This Engineering Comic idea was derived from EPIC, to communicate complex engineering concepts, topics, research in an easy-to-understand language, aiming to inspire and engage people into engineering.

EPIC Engineering Comic was founded in 2023.

General Mission
EPIC Engineering Comic Mission

The general mission of EPIC Engineering Comic is to impart authentic engineering knowledge and inspire people around the world into engineering through imaginative storytelling with visual arts.

More specifically, EPIC Engineering Comic aims to:

EDUCATE: Improve engineering learning by simplifying complex engineering topics, concepts, research into simple language

PROMOTE: Demonstrate to the world engineering is not all math and science, there is a different side of engineering – the evocative and fun side with creativity and imagination

INSPIRE: Develop engineering interest in young generation, especially in young females to bolster female representation in engineering

Educate Promote Inspire
Vision

To be the first destination for people to learn engineering with ease

EPIC Engineering Comic Vision
The Novelty of EPIC Engineering Comic

EPIC Engineering Comic is the world's first educational engineering comic series that adopts scientific journal-style format. Each episode is divided into multiple sections to make complex engineering topics engaging and memorable. Existing engineering comics focus on humour, and often do not accurately convey the engineering context. EPIC Engineering Comic focuses on the real engineering knowledge and it is created for teaching and independent learning, to build readers' engineering knowledge and interest.
