SUTD and ZJU signed a Collaboration Agreement in August 2010 to collaborate in areas such as education, research, student exchanges and joint undergraduate design competitions.
 
a) Education
 
First and foremost, ZJU will develop the curriculum of 5 electives for SUTD, thereby infusing the elements of Chinese culture, etiquette, history and perspective into our education at SUTD. Courses of these electives will be taught by Professors of ZJU, enabling students to gain first-hand knowledge of the rich Chinese culture and history in SUTD’s premises.
 
b) Student Exchanges
 
Through this collaboration, students from SUTD will have the opportunity to interact cross-culturally through participation in student exchanges with ZJU, and students can take up courses in ZJU or participate in internship opportunities in Hangzhou, China, under the arrangement of SUTD and ZJU. Students will also be able to interact through an annual symposium. Through such exchanges, students could establish networks with their Chinese counterparts, and take turns to host their friends in Singapore when they visit SUTD on exchanges.
 
c) Joint Student Design Competitions
 
Students can also participate in Joint Design Competitions, held on an annual basis, in either SUTD, ZJU or a partnering University. These Design Competitions allow students to apply their theoretical knowledge in design to practice, gain insights and exchanges of knowledge and experiences, learn to work in teams and foster good relationships and networks with friends in ZJU. Hopefully, such competitions would provide a good platform to ignite and cultivate the interest of students in design, and eventually apply design into their daily life to solve real world challenges. 
 
d) Research Collaborations
 
Being a research-intensive university, one of SUTD’s key focuses is to embark on research endeavours to create useful innovations that can be adopted by the world at large. SUTD and ZJU Faculty members will jointly partake in research collaborations to address exciting challenges associated with the world today, in areas such as (but not limited to) Healthcare, Transportation, Clean Energy and Environment. Through such collaborations, the intellectual minds of both institutions can jointly advance research boundaries and frontiers driven by real-world challenges to ensure that innovations created would find relevance and adoption by the society.
