    "When looking for universities, a lot of people tend not to go for one that is new. After sending my son to SUTD, I find that it has everything, every ingredient, to be a good university. So if parents are looking for a different way of learning (for your child), SUTD is a good choice with its cross-disciplinary curriculum and emphasis on innovation, creativity and design. This will broaden your child’s education. 

    My son has developed into a better person. SUTD has groomed him to be a man who is able to look into problems in many perspectives. He will be a very good engineer, and be able to excel in his profession and his contribution to the society."

    • "During the course of 16 weeks, I was attached to the Worldwide Public Sector Specialty Team in Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a Solutions Architect Intern. Though I managed this internship while working from home entirely, my internship experience was nothing short of AWSome! I found myself contributing to the team’s mission in many ways and learning various things along the way."

    • "One of the highlights of my 16-week internship at CGH is the opportunity to network and work together with many healthcare professionals and community organisations. I also learnt from the SUTD Social Urban Research Groupe (SURGe) how architects collect data of their target population. I developed an online survey to better understand the spaces that Tampines residents use and partnered Northeast Community Development Council to reach out to almost 200 residents. I then organised and led an on-site mixed-method survey involving almost 60 residents, which was well received."

    • "During my summer in 2020, I interned at Carousell as a Data Intern under the Growth Team which handles data related requests and projects that impact seller and buyer experience on the platform. On top of assisting product managers and other stakeholders in understanding weekly trends and numbers, I also helped to build pipelines, dashboard and conclude results for product feature A/B experiments. I was also given the opportunity to work on impactful side projects which makes use of machine learning models for predicting and forecasting business metrics."

    "At SUTD, we are blessed to have a close relationship with our teaching faculty. Often when we are stuck with questions from a class or a project, seeking help from our professor is always an option. Even if it is at an ungodly hour. I have more than once gotten a reply from Prof Tee Hui at 4am, half an hour after we sent that email."

    "SUTD has nurtured Ian’s passion and this nurturing of passion is something to be valued. Besides having strong content knowledge, having passion in one’s pursuit of knowledge and life really is the fuel of energy, the foundation for excellence and the first step in everything. 

    Regrets in sending him to SUTD? Not at all, having seen how he has developed and grown over these years."
