Why should Engineering students be in the USP?
It gives you an increased diversity of opportunities available in the USP; particularly to explore disciplines and interests on a different dimension. For example, Engineering students can read USP modules such as “Theatre & the World” and “Molecular Courtship”, which are not offered in the usual engineering curriculum.
With the plethora of International Programmes that are available to all disciplines and the integration of a Residential College component, Engineering students can interact and build intellectual and social relationships with students from other majors and walks of life. All USP students are expected to fulfil a two-year commitment of living in the USP residential college (Cinnamon College) in their first year and one other.
It is a great place to be exposed to different people with completely different mindsets which helps you to expand your perspective and develop more rigour in the way you think and approach real-life situations.
USP also provides Engineering students with flexibility and opportunities to develop and pursue their own interests academically, with resources to go wide and deep in any chosen field. For example, Engineering students in the USP collaborated with other students in building Singapore’s first personal flying machine, dubbed Snowstorm.
