Students will begin the IbD programme at SUTD in September every year. Students who elect to join the full time MEng programme will complete two to three terms of coursework followed by an additional two terms of thesis. Students will be required to take two core courses (Innovation by Design and Design Science), along with a series of optional electives. The heart of the programme lies in the hands-on, experiential learning that students will be exposed to in IDEATE PROTOTYPE REALIZE, where students will have hands-on, meaningful exposure to the design process through a series of workshops, designettes and a mentored pathway to product and project design in an IbD studio space. In addition, students will receive further hands-on training by embedding in the various centers in SUTD (International Design Centre, DmanD, NAMIC, etc.) for projects, mentoring and research. In addition, depending on the pathway taken by a student, up to 3 out-of-class experiences are required to complete the programme. The programme framework, with the initial offering of optional electives, is shown the following figure.
