Anything new is always fresh and exciting. A new idea, inspirational. Put two and two together in form of a new university, and the prospect is nothing short of thrilling.
Slated to be the first university in the world to integrate the concept of design and innovation as a common thread in research and engineering, we will attract and groom the very best faculty, staff and students to create an environment that will propel SUTD to become an intellectual hub and engine of growth for Singapore, Asia and the world.
Together with Institute Professor and the former Dean of Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Tom Magnanti, SUTD will become a melting pot of sizzling ideas, burning enthusiasm and unbelievable talent to form its own culture of innovation, leadership and entrepreneurship. MIT did this through first class scholarships and a dedicated nurturing of big and important ideas. Likewise, SUTD shares this deep and unwavering commitment to forge relationships and build an environment based on a fervent passion for intellectual and innovative exchanges.
