The Economic Development Board Industrial Postgraduate Programme offered at Singapore University of Technology and Design is an initiative by the Singapore Economic Development Board to develop a pool of postgraduate manpower with the essential and critical R&D skill-sets for roles in the industry.
Successful EDB-IPP trainees will be full-time salaried employees at the company while pursuing full-time PhD studies at SUTD. Trainees are expected to spend at least 50% of their time on an identified company research project (supervised by a team comprising 1 academic faculty from SUTD and 1 company staff with PhD qualifications) at the company’s facility.
- EDB-IPP trainees are provided with postgraduate training in a corporate R&D environment through EDB’s partnership with companies and locally-based universities (such as SUTD).
