About The Program

Singapore, one of the world’s most futuristic cities, is a dream location for this high-level STEM internship. Pursue your passion for research and answer the most pressing questions in your field. Contribute to project phases from the development of research plans and proposals, to data analysis and results presentations. Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) has a vibrant innovation and entrepreneurship culture fostered by the SUTD Entrepreneurship Centre. Outside the lab, a world of cultural adventures await as the island state has seen a mass transformation. Autonomous taxis cruise the streets, solar-celled super trees grow plants for food, and a glass biome houses a cloud forest.


Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) promotes a culture of diverse research for international students, and the Entrepreneurship Centre fosters an innovative entrepreneurship atmosphere. SUTD has over 50 start-ups—40 of which were started by SUTD students. Sleek, modern buildings interconnect classrooms, labs, study spaces, and the library. Equipped with whiteboards and smart devices, discussion spaces around the campus provide ideal meeting areas for group-based projects. Creating a landscape of the old and the new, antique Chinese buildings—including a pavilion and opera stage—overlook the eco-lake.

As an aspiring environmental engineer and a student of color, I want to revamp current civil systems for rural and developing communities through renewable energy, green infrastructure, sustainable materials, and better water, electric, and broadband networks. I want to redefine engineering to be not only about projects but more about the people they serve.
