Introduction

The National University of Singapore (NUS) Master of Science in Engineering Design & Innovation (MSc EDI) is offered by the Engineering Design and Innovation Centre at the NUS College of Design and Engineering.

The MSc EDI is a unique programme developed to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Designed for professionals who already have working knowledge in their own respective disciplines, the programme trains students to work together, making the most of their creativity and passion for solving societal challenges such as environmental sustainability, global warming, garbage overload, transportation congestion and many others.

The programme is anchored by three core modules—comprising Design Thinking & Product Development, Engineering Systems Design, and a major multi-disciplinary design project (which will span two semesters and typically involve a multi-disciplinary team working on an industrial problem). Students also have a wide selection of electives to choose from (these are grouped into three verticals: Design, Enterprise and Technology).

The programme is unique in that it brings together ideas from industrial design and complex engineering systems to deliver solutions that are holistic and that meet the needs of stakeholders. The electives allow students to explore their passions in different areas and contribute to the major design project.

Why This Programme?

  • Cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset to participate in design and innovation activities—much needed to enable value creation in any organisation.
  • Develop an understanding of technology-based design and innovation strategies, and apply design thinking and product design methodologies to develop innovative solutions.
  • Gain multi-disciplinary perspectives and broader experiences (beyond individual comfort zones), and develop the skills to work effectively in multi-disciplinary teams with extensive opportunities to hone communications skills.
