What do you get when you add mathematics, physics, computer science, and biological and chemical sciences to classical engineering studies? You get a whole new and exciting cross-disciplinary field called Engineering Science.
Jointly offered by NUS Engineering and the Faculty of Science, the Engineering Science Programme provides the scientific and mathematical tools for the fundamental study of engineered systems. Students have the opportunity to engage in nanomaterials and structures, microelectronic devices, transportation systems, energy, as well as chemical and biological systems. You can look forward to becoming a new class of engineer-scientists better prepared to solve multidisciplinary problems of a high-tech world.
Our graduates are valued for their creativity, critical thinking, good teamwork ethics, and great communication skills. Ample employment opportunities are available in traditional engineering, business markets, and emerging technologies, such as nanotechnology, photonics and renewable/sustainable energy technologies. Graduates may also proceed to postgraduate programmes in various science and engineering disciplines, or explore opportunities in academic and industry R&D labs, start-ups, nanotechnology and engineering companies.
Specialisation options include:
• Nanoscience & Nanotechnology
• Computational Engineering Science
• Energy Systems
• Photonics & Optics
