The coordinated effort of the college with MIT covers Student Exchange Programs, improvement of undergrad educational plan, personnel visits for visitor addresses, and the foundation of the International Design Center. The building and design projects of the college are licensed by the Board of Architects of Singapore and the Engineering Accreditation Board. Throughout the years, the college has won a few honors, prizes, and titles.
The establishing president is Thomas L. Magnanti, who is a Professor related to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
SUTD’s cooperation with MIT covers:
- Improvement of the undergrad educational plan
- Co-educating of subjects by MIT workforce
- Understudy trades
- Enrollment and advancement of SUTD staff
- Foundation of a significant co-found research community, SUTD–MIT International Design Center (IDC)
SUTD and Zhejiang University (ZJU) additionally mutually participate in examine joint efforts to address difficulties related with the present reality, in territories, for example, medicinal services, transportation, clean vitality, and the earth.
SUTD’s between time grounds was arranged at the previous ITE College Dover grounds in Dover from its establishment in April 2012 until December 2014.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has been building up an undergrad educational program fit to the nearby setting since the two colleges consented to the joint effort arrangement in January 2010.

SUTD gives a typical educational program to all understudies in the initial three terms (additionally alluded to as “fresh more” terms). This establishment educational plan expects understudies to take required classes in the Sciences, Mathematics, Design Thinking, Programming, and Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS).

A two-year full-time MIT–SUTD Dual graduate degree program will be offered in a joint effort with MIT to skilled alumni with a distinct fascination for inquiring about in one of the accompanying territories: Civil and Environmental Engineering, Supply Chain Management, or Engineering in Manufacturing. Graduate open doors additionally incorporate the SUTD Ph.D. Program. Applicants will go through as long as one year in the United States, and the other year in Singapore, getting graduate degrees from both MIT and SUTD.
With MIT, SUTD has propelled joint postgraduate projects to kick off research at the college.
