SUSS-SUTD Professional Certification on Industry Applications of Generative AI


The SUSS x SUTD Professional Certification on Industry Applications of Generative AI is a comprehensive programme designed to equip professionals with the essential skills and knowledge required to harness the potential of Generative AI across diverse industries. According to the SkillsFuture report (2023/2024, Singapore has a scarcity of digitally skilled workers. It is estimated that we need an additional 1.2 million employees with digital skills by 2025. Generative AI plays a pivotal role in shaping and influencing the economy by introducing new efficiencies and capabilities across multiple sectors.

The first module, "Introduction to Generative Artificial Intelligence," provides participants with a solid foundation by exploring the principles, theories, and practical applications of this transformative technology. Participants will delve into the intricacies of Generative AI, gaining a deep understanding of its capabilities and implications for real-world scenarios.

Moving into the practical realm, the second module, "Generative AI for Design," empowers participants to translate theoretical knowledge into tangible outcomes. Participants learn to develop and optimise workflows using a Design framework, ensuring the seamless integration of Generative AI applications into their professional contexts.

The programme culminates with "Harnessing Generative AI for Compelling Storytelling & Content Creation," a module designed to showcase how Generative AI can elevate narrative and content creation, fostering innovation in communication strategies across various industries.

This joint certification between SUSS and SUTD provides a gateway for professionals to navigate and excel in the dynamic landscape of Generative AI applications. The knowledge and skills learnt here will translate to significant increase in job innovation, productivity and optimisation.

Participants will also learn how to effectively use generative AI models and popular tools such as ChatGPT and Stable Diffusion.



Generative AI for Design

(Course offered by SUTD)

This course aims to introduce concepts in Design and Generative AI. Techniques to adopt Generative AI in the Design process will be covered. Learners will acquire skills in coding a workflow for Generative AI applications based on a Design framework. The course is targeted for learners in design and innovation related roles.


3(CET285) Content Creation & Storytelling Using Generative AIIn this course, we will aim to provide a comprehensive understanding on the emerging field of generative AIs (e.g. ChatGPT, Bard, Adobe Firefly, and etc). Students will learn the role of visual storytelling in communicating complex ideas and its applications for the purpose of rolling out digital marketing initiatives. It will be an exploration on the principles of design, visual storytelling, and the use of generative AIs. It aims to develop skills in creating dynamic visual narratives using these tools to engage, inform and inspire the targeted audience. The students will also gain knowledge and understanding of cutting-edge tools for creating compelling narratives and a range of visual designs, including animations, videos, graphics, and interactive media.
