The Singapore University of Technology and Design will be introducing a bachelor’s degree in design and artificial intelligence (AI).
This new degree programme will be launched the year 2020, with an expected annual intake of 50 students. The course will last for three and a half years.
The AI bachelor’s programme will be the first of its kind in Singapore, with a focus on the integration of design and AI.
As SUTD president Chong Tow Chong explains: “For this digital era, data is going to be the currency. AI and machine learning will be the necessary tools to capitalise on. There will be a new generation of designers that will utilise AI in many ways such as increasing efficiency.”
SUTD was ranked as the fifth-most influential scientific research institution in telecommunications by Clarivate Analytics in 2017. Last year, 94 per cent of SUTD’s fresh graduates found employment within six months.
