In August 2015, SUTD graduated its first batch of students, of which 37% are made up of females. This pioneer batch has been well received by the industry, enjoying good overall employment rates and competitive salaries. The annual Joint Graduate Employment Survey conducted by SUTD with the other autonomous universities revealed that 85% of SUTD’s fresh graduates in the labour force were employed within six months of completing their final examinations, with the top hiring sectors being the research and development and the infocomm services industries. The mean and median gross monthly salaries of SUTD’s engineering graduates employed in full-time permanent employment were $3,729, and $3,600 respectively. In particular, the median gross monthly salary for SUTD’s Information Systems Technology and Design graduates was $3,950. This premium is a strong testament that the multidisciplinary hands-on education that the students acquired at SUTD is valuable in the workplace.
