Director's Message

Welcome to School of Design, affectionately known as SDN by staff and students.

If DESIGN is your passion, SDN is the place for you!

Our fabulous team of teaching staff, many with years of working experience and solid University credentials, are committed to work with you to realise your passion.

Our innovative curriculum and well-equipped facilities emulate the industry environment to ensure that you are ready to join the industry or continue to pursue degree programmes. In your three years with us, you will be engaged in multiple real-life industry projects in addition to a 12 or 24-week internship programme, locally or overseas. And while at SDN, you will have many exciting opportunities to go on inspirational overseas trips to Global Design Cities like London, Barcelona and Tokyo.

Today, many of our graduates are working in major companies such as WOHA, Shimano, IKEA, SapientNitro, Philips, Banyan Tree and Electrolux. Others have pursued further studies at top Universities such as Royal College of Art, Architectural Association School of Architecture, Central Saint Martins, London College of Communication, Glasgow School of Art, NUS and NTU, just to name a few.

So, come join the SDN family! Be it learning through classroom engagements or working on industry projects, you will be able to draw inspiration from our staff and peers.
