The NUS Graduate School for Integrative Sciences and Engineering (NGS) was established to spearhead exceptional integrative PhD research and education that transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries.

  • 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 tailor-made 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 the relevant Faculties/Schools at NUS, and the various research institutes of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore. NGS also leverages on NUS' 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.
