National University of Singapore
Graduate School for Integrative Sciences and Engineering (NGS)
NGS - The Home of Cutting-edge, Cross-disciplinary PhD Research & Graduate
National University of Singapore (NUS) enjoys a global standing as one of Asia's top universities and amongst the world's top 30. The multi-campus University, with distinctive strengths in education and research, features strong entrepreneurial and global dimensions in its multi-faceted initiatives. An NUS education optimises students' potential, broaden intellectual horizons and shape global outlooks. It leverages on its multi-disciplinary strengths to deliver a comprehensive, broad-based education. A vibrant residential life, and exciting cultural and sporting pursuits add to the learning and living experiences.
The NUS Graduate School for Integrative Sciences and Engineering (NGS)
is a university-wide endeavor established to spearhead and promote exceptional integrative Ph.D. research and education that transcend and/or bridge traditional disciplinary boundaries
in science, engineering, computing, and related aspects of bio-medical research.
- Our multi-disciplinary environment affords exceptionally gifted, motivated students tremendous flexibility. If they choose to, students can explore the possibility of dipping into fields of study and research different from the disciplines they originate from.
- Our students have access to a world-class infrastructure, and receive research supervision from distinguished academics from two (or more) different fields of their choosing and interests.
- And, the curriculum is tailored by and to each individual student's needs and interests, and affords ample opportunities to ensure and enhance integrative learning.
NGS has tight links with various relevant Faculties/Schools at NUS, and the numerous research institutes of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore. NGS also taps into NUS' web of synergistic, complementary partnerships with a select number of world-leading overseas research institutes and knowledge organisations in the USA, the UK, Continental Europe, Japan, China, South Korea, Australia, etc. Thus, NGS is able to offer gifted students the opportunity to engage in globally progressive research in superb research facilities both within Singapore and further afield.
NGS also encourages and funds the attendance of, and presentations in, international conferences and exhibitions, so that our students may have numerous opportunities to interact with renowned research scientists and fellow colleagues across the world.
Such a totality in research and education effectively sharpen their critical thinking skills, and help them to design their Ph.D. projects in creative and interesting ways.
NGS facilitates a truly international PhD research experience. Our current students hail from the USA, Canada, France, Switzerland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Poland, India, China, Taiwan, Iran, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Portugal, France, Italy, Nepal, and of course Singapore.
NGS embraces graduates who envision true innovation without boundaries. We invite graduates with a strong passion and aptitude for research to embark on cross-disciplinary research at the forefront of science, engineering, computing, and related aspects of medicine.
"Das Campus-Leben an der NUS hat mich persönlich sehr beeindruckt: Moderne Gebäude, mit super ausgestatteten Laboren und vielen Sportmöglichkeiten die kostenlos genutzt werden konnten. Es fiel mir sehr leicht neue Leute kennen zu lernen, mit denen man auch außerhalb der Uni viel zusammen erleben konnte. Wenn man bei einem Kaffee zusammen auf einer der vielen Terrassen mit Ausblick saß, konnte man sich sehr gut entspannen."
- Dr Martin Heinrich (NGS Ph.D. 2014/15)
