Singapore University Of Technology And Design

It was announced yesterday that Singapore's fourth public-funded university has been named the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SU).

An institute professor with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Thomas Magnanti has been selected to head the University which is slated to open in year 2011.

Some details of the university as follows:

Date of opening: Year 2011

4 Degree programmes on offer: Architecture & Sustainable Design, Engineering Product Design, Engineering Systems & System Design, and Information Engineering & Design.

Size: Medium, eventually the university will eventually cater to some 2,000 to 4,000 graduates.

Location: Changi Business Park, by 2015, interim campus will be announced by early next year

With the fourth public university, there may be more opportunities for local students to garner a place in local universities. On the other hand, it may be harder for students to decide on which local university to enroll in to pursue their course of study.

Two main factors which would help them shape their decision would still be cost and the ranking of the universities and how attractive their degrees are to employers local and worldwide.
