MIT-SUTD Dual Masters' Program

The 2-year MIT-SUTD Dual Masters’ Program, a joint collaboration between the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), aims to support and promote outstanding researchers to maximize their potential.

The Program will provide students with two sets of rich experiences. In the first year, they will do coursework at MIT, a world-class university.

The second year will see them embarking on research at SUTD, in an environment that blends scholarship with practice. A truly ‘dual’ experience, candidates will have the opportunity to immediately apply their newly acquired knowledge to solve real-world problems. Upon completion, they will graduate with two Masters’ degrees - one from MIT and another from SUTD.

Learn to innovate at MIT, innovate with what you learned at SUTD:

1. At MIT


Students will spend 9 to 13 months learning from MIT faculty who possess a wealth of teaching experience and research expertise.

Programs offered
