Singapore University of Technology and Design

Introduction

Singapore University of Technology and Design


The Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) is 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), SUTD seeks to nurture technically-grounded leaders and innovators in engineering product development, engineering systems and design, information systems technology and design, and architecture and sustainable design, to serve societal needs.


The University, also in collaboration with Zhejiang University (ZJU) and Singapore Management University (SMU), is distinguished by its unique East and West academic programme which incorporates elements of technology, entrepreneurship, management and design thinking. It also offers an MIT-SUTD Dual Masters' Degree Programme; a full-time programme leading to a degree from MIT and another from SUTD. Graduate opportunities also include the SUTD PhD Programme. As a research-intensive university, SUTD will bring together the best minds and ideas to seek solutions to modern-day challenges and create a better future.


Research Centres in SUTD


These vibrant research centres offer students many rewarding opportunities:


SUTD-MIT International Design Centre (IDC)


The IDC intends to become the world’s premier scholarly hub for technologically intensive design. It is built upon the foundations of innovations for societal needs, quality intellectual merit and creating leaders for an innovation-based economy.


Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities (LKY CIC)


The LKY CIC is established to stimulate thinking and research on the critical issues of cities and urbanisation and to provide breakthrough urban solutions. It is one of the first university centres to focus on the integrated use of technology and design to derive solutions for urban planning and urban design, development and management. The Centre will study the confluence of governance, social management frameworks, and technology and design innovations.


Temasek Laboratories


The Temasek Laboratories is a centre for excellence in defence-related research. It specialises in systems design and integration - such as unmanned systems, information systems, soldier systems and engineering systems.


iTRUST


The iTRUST is a centre for interdisciplinary research in trustworthy infocomm systems. It conducts fundamental and applied research in the broad areas of information and system security, including large and complex cyber physical systems.


SUTD-GREaT LAB (SGLab)


The SGLab conducts cutting-edge research in the area of games and their development, for entertainment and beyond. In addition, the lab provides educational and training opportunities to students and engineers in Singapore and the broader region.

MIT-SUTD Dual Masters' Programme

The 2-year MIT-SUTD Dual Masters’ Programme, a joint collaboration between the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), aims to support and promote outstanding researchers to maximise their potential.

The Programme will provide students with two sets of rich experiences. In the first year, they will do coursework at MIT, a world-class university.

The second year will see them embarking on research at SUTD, in an environment that blends scholarship with practice. A truly ‘dual’ experience, candidates will have the opportunity to immediately apply their newly acquired knowledge to solve real world problems. Upon completion, they will graduate with two Masters’ degrees - one from MIT and another from SUTD.... [-]
