Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)
PEO1 Lead a successful professional career by practicing a good technical knowledge and competency in computing, information systems or other related industries and disciplines, well versed in the design, development, and quality assurance of complex information systems.
PEO2 Demonstrate a sound engineering or managerial leadership in a multidisciplinary team setting through high ethical and professional standards and integrity, with due consideration to global, business, technological, societal and environmental issues.
PEO3 Commit to a continuous and life-long learning process, embracing the fast-changing technological environment.
PEO4 Engage constructively in a team or organisation by practicing effective communication, inter-personal and project management skills.

Explanation: Program Educational Objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the programme is preparing graduates to achieve. Graduates are expected to demonstrate these attributes 3 to 5 years after graduation.

SUTD Mission: The Singapore University of Technology and Design is established in collaboration with MIT to advance knowledge and nurture technically grounded leaders and innovators to serve societal needs. This will be accomplished, with a focus on design, through an integrated multi-disciplinary curriculum and multi-disciplinary research.

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)
1 Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems.
2 Identify, formulate, research literature and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
3 Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
4 Conduct investigations of complex problems using research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
5 Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
6 Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice.
7 Understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
8 Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
9 Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary settings.
10 Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
11 Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
12 Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
13 Demonstrate knowledge and skill set needed for the design, development, and quality assurance of complex information systems.

Explanation: Student Learning Outcomes are narrower statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire in their matriculation through the programme. The programme should demonstrate that the students attain the outcomes listed in Graduate’s Attributes as defined by Washington Accord.
