03.007 Introduction to Design

The SUTD freshmore course, Introduction to Design, introduces participants to concepts of design at a variety of scales and through both engineering and architectural design disciplines. Participants will be exposed to core technology and design themes including principles, design processes,...

10.001 Advanced Mathematics I

The main objective of the subject is to provide firm foundations of single variable calculus. It aims to motivate students on why math is important and to demonstrate mathematics in action. Students learn the basic concepts, techniques, and applications of...

10.002 Physics I

This course is the typical first year mechanics course for engineering students. It is basically based on the corresponding Physics I course offered at MIT. Topics include One Dimensional Motion, Two Dimensional Motion, Force and Newton’s Laws of Motion, Energy,...

10.004 Advanced Mathematics II

This subject provides an introduction to linear algebra and multivariable calculus. We cover topics in linear algebra including solving systems of linear equations, matrices, LU factorisation, determinants, vector spaces, linear independence, basis, fundamental spaces, projection, eigenvectors, and diagonalisation with a...

10.005 Physics II

This course is the typical first year Electromagnetism course for engineering students, based on a similar course offered at MIT. The materials include Electrostatics: electric charge, Coulomb’s law, electrostatic field, Gauss’ Law, electric potential difference, electrostatic energy; electric structure of...

10.006 Chemistry and Biology: Natural World

This course presents the complementary nature of chemistry and biology by providing a solid understanding of the fundamentals of general chemistry, biochemistry, and molecular biology. The connection between atomic, chemical, and molecular structures as applied to biological systems is presented....

10.007 Modelling the Systems World

The subject is divided into two parts - Systems Modelling and Systems Optimisation. Systems Modelling introduces the basics of mathematical modelling. Students will also learn how to solve differential equations (first order and second order) and the Laplace Transform method....

10.008 Engineering in The Physical World

This course provides students with the necessary framework to understand, model, and ultimately engineer the physical world: behaviour at different scales - micro, macro, lumped - in engineering applications; molecular origin of thermal and mechanical phenomena; brief discussion of chemical...

10.009 The Digital World

In "The Digital World", students will learn to use the principles of modularity and abstraction, two fundamental ideas in many areas of design. Modularity is the notion that simple components can be reused to build larger, more complex components. Abstraction...

10.011 Introduction to Physical Chemistry

This course presents a solid foundation of the fundamentals of physical chemistry, from the atomic level to the molecular level. Students will learn and appreciate how the quantum atomic model can explain chemical bonding and properties of molecules or solids....

10.012 Introduction to Biology

This course focuses on the fundamental principles of cellular biology and genetics. Major topics covered by this course includes cell signaling, cell cycle, cell cycle regulation, sexual reproduction, genetic analysis in Drosophila, human genetics, and cancer. During the course, we...
