DManD has an ambitious long‐term vision to create the frontiers of digital design and manufacturing by bringing together new multidisciplinary ideas and methods in computational and engineering sciences, industrial engineering, technology‐intensive design, architecture, and the humanities, arts, and social sciences in a way that perhaps only can be done in the context of SUTD’s unique multidisciplinary structure.



Create frontiers in design and manufacturing enabled by the digital thread that integrates the design and manufacturing value chain.



Create computational simulation and design capabilities to enable designers to exploit new design windows enabled by digital manufacturing technologies and create previously unobtainable products, and

Create innovative fabrication technologies based on the digital fusion of sensing, additive and subtractive processes, as well as new ideas in multimaterial and multifunctional fabrication.
