1 Engineering Systems & Design

2 We live in an increasingly complex society

3 ESD is the study of large-scale complex systems …

4 … to solve big societal challenges Energy Environment Food Health Water Liveability Transportation Security

5 Alignment to core strengths of Singapore  Logistics & supply chains  Infrastructure systems  Transportation and mass transit  Financial services  Healthcare  Natural resources management  Retail  Hospitality & entertainment

6 World-class faculty  One of the largest such groups in the world, with over 70 faculty members in steady- state  Faculty members are from the very best universities in the world  Diverse in nationalities

7 Our research interests  Supply chains  Logistics  Transportation  Financial engineering  Innovation & entrepreneurship  Optimization  Economics & game theory  Stochastic modelling  Telecommunication systems  Renewable energy  Electricity markets

8 Our programmes at a glance  3.5-year (8 terms) programme  3 common freshmore terms of Math, Science and Humanities  Students select ESD in the 4 th term  Specialisation in 1 of 7 focus tracks  Internship and exchanges  Project and design intensive  Joint collaboration between MIT & SUTD  2-year programme  1 st year by coursework at MIT  2 nd year by research at SUTD  Attachment to industry  2 Masters’ degrees awarded, one from MIT and one from SUTD  3-5 year programme  Coursework, summer research projects, thesis  Flexible advising structure  Attachment to industry  Professional development programme Undergraduate Masters PhD

9 Our Undergraduate Programme

10 Our students study … Process design and engineering of operations Manufacturing / service operations management Evaluation and improvement of processes Managing constraints and risks Efficient resource allocation What to make When to make How much to make Managing flows Material flows Information flows Financial flows People flows

11 … with emphasis on  Process and business model innovation through engineering new ways of producing, distributing, and consuming  Leveraging data to make smart business decisions  Consumer data, financial data, trade data, traffic data, energy consumption data  Drawing insights from economics, policy, business and social science

12 A unique curriculum Analytics  Optimization  Probability & Statistics  Simulation  Network Science  System Dynamics Fundamentals  Mathematics  Physical sciences  Biological Sciences  Humanities Economics, Management & the Social Context  Economics  Financial Decision Making  Operations Management  Quality and Reliability  Organizations & People  Project Management

13 Course sequence

14 7 focus tracks in which to specialise

15 Multiple industry project opportunities  Introduction to Design (freshmen year)  Engineering Systems Design (sophomore year)  Operations Management (junior year)  Capstone (senior year, 2 semesters)  Internships (sophomore and junior years)
