SUTD is Singapore’s 4th public university and one of the world’s first university to incorporate the art and science of design and technology into its multi-disciplinary curriculum and research. SUTD was established in collaboration with MIT and incorporates elements of entrepreneurship, management and design thinking in its unique programmes. We welcome students from partner universities to join us for a term of exchange and be part of this unique and dynamic culture and environment!

SUTD currently offers the Spring, Summer and Fall Terms for academic study by exchange students where they will have opportunities to take selected subjects in our Engineering pillars (EPD, ESD and ISTD), and the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS) cluster.

Research-oriented students will also be able to work with our faculty and students on cutting edge and innovative research projects under our International Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (iUROP).
