The Home of Cutting-edge, Multi-disciplinary PhD Research & Graduate Education

The Graduate School for Integrative Sciences and Engineering (NGS) at National University of Singapore (NUS) was established to spearhead exceptional multi-disciplinary PhD research and education.

  • Our unique multi-disciplinary and student-centred 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 excellent resources, a world-class infrastructure, and receive supervision from distinguished research scientists from two (or more) different fields of their choosing and interests, from within NUS as well as from the various research institutes of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore - Singapore’s national lead agency in research in the sciences and technological domains.
  • NGS also taps into the University’s worldwide 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, 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.
  • And, the curriculum is tailor-made by and to each individual student’s needs and interests, and affords ample opportunities to ensure and enhance integrative learning.

NGS offers generous, full direct-PhD Scholarships to talented individuals of all nationalities with outstanding academic credentials and research potential in science, engineering, computing and bio-medicine, to pursue research that cuts across disciplinary boundaries.
