Introduced in 2015 as a university-wide programme, SMU-X is an experiential learning framework which calls for students to take on real- world challenges by collaborating on projects with corporates, non-profit and government organizations. The framework represents a paradigm shift in the traditional approach to teaching and learning; from being teacher-centred to students taking ownership of their own learning.
