The Singapore University of Technology and Design remains a popular university in Singapore despite having ended its collaborative venture with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
This year, students continued to be attracted to SUTD. The university received over 3,000 applications and took in a record 458 students.
SUTD president Chong Tow Chong, who assumed his appointment in January this year, said the university was confident that it would be able to stand on its own.
SUTD’s curriculum spans four key areas: architecture and sustainable design, engineering product development, engineering systems and design, and information systems technology and design.
The latest graduate employment survey released earlier in 2018 also revealed that SUTD graduates received higher starting salaries than their peers from the National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University and Singapore Management University.
The employability of SUTD graduates continues to a key factor in attracting university aspirants in Singapore.
