SUTD Engineering Doctorate Programme

Programme Overview

The SUTD Engineering Doctorate (EngD) provides graduate students with industry-relevant training to enable the translation of research & development (R&D) efforts into tangible products, systems and services.

In general, the EngD is oriented toward research of a technical readiness level (TRL) at 3–4, compared with a PhD degree  that is traditionally oriented toward a TRL of 1–2.

EngD students must demonstrate a high level of expertise in both theoretical scientific principles and the implementation of said theory on realistic and industry-relevant needs. EngD students will be co–supervised by SUTD faculty members and industry supervisors.

In additional to passing the EngD qualifying examination (within 2 years) and submitting a EngD thesis, students are required to complete the following coursework components:
