Students who intend to apply to an Engineering programme in NUS and are interested to join the iDP may select an Engineering programme of their choice AND include the Innovation & Design Second Major in their application form. Successful applicants will be admitted into the iDP during matriculation.

Students who are unsure whether to join the iDP at matriculation may apply during their first or second semester in NUS. Email invitations will be sent out to eligible students when the application period is open in each semester, which is normally around March/April and October/November.

The iDP is also open to non-Engineering students. They may apply during their first or second semester in NUS during the application period in each semester.
