SUTD seeks to implement a targeted Communications Intensive (CI) programme as part of the engineering and architecture degrees offered across four pillars, and within the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences cluster. Our aim is to equip students with knowledge of communication strategies in order to disseminate their innovative plans and ideas, in both academic and professional contexts.
The Centre for Writing and Rhetoric (CWR) sees CI as an integral part of the entire curriculum, giving students the necessary training in all forms of communication they need to succeed in their chosen field.
Hence, CI is a collaborative process between faculty and students with the support of communications advisors.
By integrating CI instruction and assessment into current SUTD courses, the CWR seeks to guide students at various stages of skills acquisition so they become proficient communicators, enabling them to move forward with confidence in their future careers.
