Our Bachelor of Engineering and Master of Architecture degree programmes have received full accreditation from the Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB) and the Board of Architects (BOA).
EAB has awarded accreditation for our three undergraduate engineering programmes − namely Engineering Product Development, Engineering Systems and Design and Information Systems Technology and Design.
The programmes were awarded a five-year (maximum accreditation tenure) full accreditation. Based on the recommendations of the EAB panels, students graduating in 2017 to 2021 are now recognised as having fully-accredited qualifications. This accreditation is also extended to the first and second batch of students who graduated in 2015 and 2016, and had previously obtained provisional accreditation.
The EAB panellists, which consisted of senior academics from Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, as well as local industry leaders, assessed the degree programmes based on student learning outcomes, curriculum and teaching process, facilities and learning environment among many others. Extensive interviews with faculty and students (both alumni and current undergraduates) were conducted to ensure the robustness of the educational experience. Prior to the accreditation visit, dialogues and feedback sessions were also conducted with employers of SUTD student to ensure that they possess the relevant knowledge, skills and competencies required by the industry.
SUTD’s five-year Master of Architecture programme, which includes the completion of the Bachelor of Science (Architecture and Sustainable Design), has also received a five-year (also maximum accreditation tenure) full accreditation. The programme is now recognised by the BOA as one of the required qualifications for professional registration.
One of the hallmarks of SUTD’s programme is that a Master of Architecture graduate would have already completed two to three internships with companies by the time they graduate, ensuring that they are “work ready”.
"The Board of Architects (BOA) Singapore has always been very keen to see a second distinctive architectural degree programme being offered by our publicly funded universities in Singapore. BOA is happy to note that the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), the second autonomous university offering Master Degree in architectural programme, is collaborating with renowned MIT to offer very innovative programme to serve the critical emerging needs of a world in transition and a profession evermore engaged with the evolution of business, technology, and socioeconomic institutions worldwide." - Registrar, BOA
