The NUS Graduate School for Integrative Sciences & Engineering (NGS) recognizes that solving many of the most challenging problems in science, engineering, and related aspects of medicine requires an integrative research approach. Students are encouraged to transcend traditional discipline boundaries in their PhD research projects, to drive progress to new levels. For example, the skills sets of computational scientists, mathematicians or physicists can be deployed to model complex biological systems, engineers can draw on their specialist knowledge to devise novel methods for wound healing or drug delivery, and life scientists can apply their knowledge of cell structure and function to the study of artificial membranes.
At NGS, coursework is tailored to individual students needs. By taking courses and carrying out lab rotations early on in the degree, students have the opportunity to acquire new knowledge and tools in areas related to their PhD project. Life scientists can gain proficiency in computation, physicists and engineers can acquire biological concepts, and medics can learn about the molecular basis of disease.
NGS embraces students trained in a vast array of subject areas who have the talent to see that true innovation knows no artificial boundaries.
