The Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) is Singapore’s fourth publicly-funded autonomous university, and one of the first universities in the world to incorporate the art and science of design and technology into a multi-disciplinary curriculum. Established in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and also in partnership with Zhejiang University, SUTD harnesses the best practices and values of the East and the West, and seeks to nurture technically-grounded leaders and innovators in Architecture and Sustainable Design (ASD), Engineering Product Development (EPD), Engineering Systems and Design (ESD), and Information Systems Technology and Design (ISTD), to serve societal needs. Students learn through a world-class, design-centric education in a hands-on and collaborative learning environment.
SUTD’s unique and forward-looking curriculum and pedagogy earned the university its recognition by international experts as the top emerging leader in engineering education in a recent study commissioned by MIT and published in March 2018.
SUTD’s graduates were also well received by the industry with consistently high overall employment rates and starting salaries. The results from the latest Graduate Employment Survey revealed that more than nine in 10 SUTD fresh graduates were employed within six months of completing their final examinations with overall employment rate increasing to 91.4% in 2017. The mean gross monthly salary among SUTD’s fresh graduates employed in full-time permanent employment remained consistently high, at $3,859 in 2017. Some of the top hiring sectors include Information & Communication, Scientific Research & Development and Financial & Insurance.
In the next few years, students can look forward to even more exciting programmes and opportunities especially in areas such as Aviation, Cities, Healthcare, and Artificial Intelligence as announced in the University’s growth plans.
Join the University that empowers their students to design, innovate and build a better world.
