    Choosing Pathways:

    For PPP & RfP
    Decide only after Year 1
    iDP is available only as a 2nd Major
    Either apply to iDP 2nd Major when applying to NUS Engineering (any discipline)Or apply to iDP 2nd Major after Semester 1 or Semester 2 (by the latest)

    Switching Pathways

    You may switch to a different pathway if you change your mind. However, switching into iDP after Semester 2 is not encouraged because of the time needed for the multi-year group project.
