Change of Name for the ISTD Degree Programme

ISTD will be changing the name of its degree programme from the Bachelor of Engineering (Information Systems Technology and Design) to Bachelor of Engineering (Computer Science and Design). This name change will take effect from the graduating class of 2021 and will also affect the Minor programme. The decision to change the degree programme name to “Computer Science and Design (CSD)” aims to accurately reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the computing-intensive coupled with design curriculum that students have undergone in the ISTD pillar. Multiple discussions with various stakeholders such as alumni, current students, faculty and industry also highlighted strong reasons in support of this change. The curriculum of the CSD degree programme will remain essentially unchanged and is still accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Board (EAB).
