The Master of Engineering (Research), or MEng, offers working professionals and fresh graduates the opportunity to explore independent, research-oriented solutions to existing engineering challenges and create A Better World by Design.

MEng students will conduct their research under a SUTD faculty member, who will guide, mentor and provide supervision where necessary. This research will culminate in the creation of a Master thesis, which must be evaluated and passed by a Thesis Examination Committee.
