Welcome to

Design Innovation (DI) Learning Modules!

These modules cover a key subset of the Design Methods that we practice in SUTD-MIT IDC, guiding learners on how to execute them. They are categorized according to the Design Process Phases (Discover, Define, Develop, Deliver) and support our Design Method Cards.


Don't forget to embrace the Design Principles as you practice these methods.

Let's dive in!
