A warm welcome to the first virtual Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) Capstone Design Showcase 2020. This showcase seeks to celebrate the remarkable efforts that our graduating students have put in for the past seven months as part of the Capstone Design Programme.
The Capstone Design Programme has been the hallmark of SUTD’s graduation experience. It provides a realistic and integrated design experience for our graduating students from different majors to combine their respective expertise to solve real-world challenges presented by our Industry Partners or to develop their business ideas via entrepreneurship capstone projects. In this seven-month journey, our students gained valuable exposure to real-world technical and business challenges, thus gaining a good head start in their careers.
This year, we have a total of 63 projects and 44 participating Industry Partners; of these 63 projects, 6 are proposed by students to further develop their business ideas. We welcome the new companies who have joined us for the first time and we would like to thank partners who have been with us for a number of years.
Heartiest congratulations to all the graduating students! As you start your professional careers, I urge you to be anything but ordinary. Take risks and be innovative. Be inspired and inspire. Be different and make a difference to the world.
Finally, I wish you all the very best in your future endeavours.
