Course
Structure

Graduate courses are usually conducted in the evenings from 6.00 pm to 9.00 pm from
Mondays to Fridays.
In the M.Sc. (IP Mgt) programme, students can expect some classes on Saturdays (typically
from 9.30am to 12.30pm) for some of the Grad. Cert. in IP Law modules.
The general course structure for all M.Sc. programmes is shown in Table A (page 3). Students
may either take a general course leading to a M.Sc. degree in their chosen discipline or choose
an area of specialization (where available). The areas of specialization are shown in Table B
(page 4).

Registration

Students either register as full-time or part-time candidates. However, International candidates


who are not residing or not working in Singapore are only eligible to apply for the full-time
M.Sc. programmes, and if offered admission, they are to be registered as full-time students
only.
All registered full-time students are not permitted to be employed without permission from the
University. Those found doing so may have their candidatures terminated immediately.
No student may concurrently be a candidate for more than one degree or register as a candidate
of the University and of another University or Institution.

Exemption of
Modules

Applicants who are Grad. Dip. (Env Eng / Aviation Mgt / Maritime & Port Mgt) holders and/or
former M.Sc. students who withdrew from their course of study and who wish to be considered
for exemption of module(s) in their new M.Sc. candidature must apply in writing through their
respective Departments Office only after they gain successful admission to their new M.Sc.
programme.
Applicants who meet the minimum requirements of an average of 55% in Grad. Cert in IP Law
will automatically be exempted from the GCIP modules upon successful admission to the
M.Sc.(IP Mgt) programme.

Only offered once a year in August

Pre-taken
Modules

Please note that any modules taken to meet the requirements of one degree cannot be used to
count towards another degree.
NUS B.Eng. or B.Tech. graduates may apply for a transfer of credits of their approved pretaken* modules read during their undergraduate studies to their current M.Sc. studies in NUS.
The pre-taken modules should be graduate modules and certain Level 4000 modules which the
Department allows to be counted towards the M.Sc. programme requirements.
Modules pre-taken (maximum of 5) should be read less than 5 years prior to admission of their
M.Sc. degree and are not counted towards their Bachelors degree. Upon approval, the pretaken modules and grades will be transferred and included in the CAP computation of their
current M.Sc. programme. All applications for transfer of credits must be submitted to GSE
within the 1st month of their new M.Sc. candidature.
*Pre-taken modules must be indicated in the transcripts of academic records for their Bachelors degree
(i.e. B.Eng. or B.Tech.) and not included in the Bachelors degree CAP computation.

Professional
Development
Units

For each M.Sc. module read by a M.Sc. student who is a member of the Professional Engineers
Board Singapore (PEB), 39 Professional Units (PDU) may be awarded under the Professional
Engineers Board Singapore's Continuing Professional Development Programme (CPD).

Selection of
Modules &
Class TimeTable

Information on available modules for each semester and class time-table will be issued by the

TOEFL and
IELTS Tests

The quantity and quality of academic work at NUS cannot be accomplished without the mastery
of the English language. The point is deliberately emphasized because graduate students at NUS
submit assignments, take written examinations and are expected to participate actively in
classroom discussions. Applicants who graduated from Universities where English is not the
main medium of instruction (e.g. China, Myanmar, Indonesia, etc) are required to demonstrate
their English proficiency by means of TOEFL* / IELTS** test scores.
Applicants who graduated from English-medium Universities may be required to sit for the
TOEFL/IELTS test, at the discretion of the Faculty of Engineering, so as to assess their
suitability for university study.
Applicants are expected to check the Acknowledgement Slip/Email sent to them as to whether
they are required to sit for TOEFL/IELTS test. Those who are expected to do so, please submit
the originals/photocopies of their TOEFL/ IELTS scoresheets by the stipulated date.
*TOEFL is the abbreviation for the Test of English as a Foreign Language.
**IELTS is the abbreviation for the International English Language Testing System.
The minimum score expected is:
i. 600 (for TOEFL paper-based test) or
ii. 250 (for TOEFL computer-based test) or
iii. 92 (for TOEFL internet-based test) or
iv. 6.5 score for IELTS (Academic).

Fees Session 2015/2016


While you are pursuing your studies in NUS, you are liable to pay fees. The amount payable may depend on your
nationality as well as whether you have previously enjoyed a Singapore government subsidy or sponsorship by a
government agency.
In essence, students either pay fees as set out in Tables 1 and 4 or Tables 2 and 4, while the M.Sc.(IP Mgt) students pay
fees set out in Tables 3 and 4.
Category 1 Non-Subsidised Tuition Fees
Students who have previously enjoyed government subsidy/sponsorship by Ministry of Education (MOE) or any
Singapore government agency (such as scholarships offered by the Ministries, Public Service Commission and Statutory
Boards) in a graduate programme (either Masters or Ph.D. degrees) will not be eligible for MOE subsidy in another
graduate programme at the same or lower level. Instead, such students are liable to pay Non-Subsidised Tuition Fees.
For example, students who have previously enjoyed subsidy/scholarship in a Masters programme and have attained the
Masters degree will not be eligible for subsidy in another programme at Masters or lower level. The Non-Subsidised
Fees rates determined by MOE in Academic Year 2015/2016 are shown in Table 1. The Non-Subsidised Fees rates
payable for subsequent Academic Years are subject to revision. For the latest updates, please visit the website
http://www.nus.edu.sg/registrar/edu/gd-fees.html .

For programmes that are deemed feasible (based on industry demand) to implement a service obligation, the self-financing
international student may be offered the option of signing the service obligation agreement in exchange for reduced tuition
fees. However, the student can only apply for service obligation with MOE on condition that they have not previously
enjoyed MOEs government subsidy in another graduate programme (see Note 4 below).
International students who have signed the Service Obligation Agreement are required to work in Singapore-based
companies for 3 years upon graduation. Singapore-based companies refer to local and international companies that have a
base in Singapore that is registered with the Accounting & Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) as well as companies
of such local and international companies registered with ACRA that are based overseas.
You may refer to http://www.nus.edu.sg/admissions/graduate-studies/service-obligation.php for further information on
service obligation.

Deferment

Once an offer of admission is made to a successful applicant, no deferment of registration will


be granted to candidates who are currently residing in Singapore. Successful applicants who are
unable to register will have to re-apply for admission. Candidates who are pursuing full-time
study and who are presently not residing in Singapore may, subject to approval, be granted
deferment for at most one semester. All requests are considered on a case-by-case basis.

Financial
Statement for
International
Applicants

Overseas applicants who are not residing or not working in Singapore are only eligible to apply
for admission to pursue graduate programmes on a full-time basis. For candidates who are not
on any scholarship or sponsorship (e.g. companys), their application must be accompanied by
documentary evidence to show their ability to support themselves financially (i.e. estimated
living expenses of S$18,000 a year in Singapore). As such, applicants are to provide either:

a bank statement indicating a balance of at least S$18,000 or its equivalent in savings / fixed
deposit account(s); or
a letter of confirmation and financial statement from a sponsor [e.g. bank statement of
sponsor indicating a balance of at least S$18,000 or its equivalent in savings / fixed deposit
account(s)].

This amount is based on the minimum period of one year taken to complete the programme on
full-time basis. In addition, candidates must also ensure that they have the financial means to
see through their programme of study, in terms of paying for their tuition and other related fees,
for their entire programme of study. Candidates who require more time to prepare themselves
financially for their graduate studies (e.g. tuition fees, living expenses etc) are encouraged to
apply for admission in the subsequent intake when they have enough means to see through their
programme of study.
Please refer to the section on 'Guide for International Applicants' (pages 44 & 45) for details on
immigration matters, accommodation and estimated cost of living.
Financial
Assistance

Financial assistance is available in the form of (1) Tuition Fee Loan, and
(2) NUS GSA scholarship for relevant full-time graduate candidates who are nationals of
ASEAN member countries, except Singapore citizens and permanent residents.

(1) Tuition Fee


Loan

MASTER OF SCIENCE (ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING)


The Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Electrical Engineering is structured around lectures and end-of-semester examinations
during the regular semester I and II of the academic year. Candidates may opt for part-time or full-time study.
Lectures are usually held on weekdays in the evening from 6.00pm to 9.00pm.
A candidate needs to complete at least 10 modules (40 modular credits) with a minimum cumulative average point
(CAP) of 3.0 (B-) in order to graduate. The English Language requirement, where relevant, is in addition to the coursework
requirements. Graduate English courses are excluded from the CAP computation.
Student may read for a M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering with or without an area of specialization.
If a student has opted for a specialization and has met the graduation requirements for the MSc., but has not met the
requirements for graduating with the specialization, then by default, the student will graduate with the M.Sc. degree without
specialization indicated.

The specializations available are:


1. Automation and Control Engineering
2. Communications Engineering
3. Computer Engineering
4. Nanoelectronics
5. Power and Energy Systems
Whether or not a specialization is opted, a candidate may offer projects in lieu of graduate modules. If a candidate opts for
a project, he/she has to propose a suitable project and find an appropriate supervisor. The candidate's experience and
expertise in his/her workplace should help to identify a suitable project.
There are 2 types of projects (only one of these types can be taken):
Type 1: Independent Study Modules, EE5001/ EE5002 (equivalent to one graduate module)
Type 2: EE Project, EE5003 (equivalent to two graduate modules)
For information on staff research areas, please visit the ECE website at: http://www.ece.nus.edu.sg/community/faculty
Some modules have prerequisites. It is the candidate's responsibility to ensure that the prerequisite requirements are met.
Likewise, if a specialization is opted for, the candidate has to ensure that the requirements for this specialization are
satisfied. Please refer to the requirements for each of the specializations given below.
Candidates are asked to note that some modules are offered in Semester I and others in Semester 2. However, due to various
constraints, some modules may not be offered at all in any particular year. Candidates should note this in planning their
study programme.
Candidates should also note that the final composition of graduate modules proposed by them is subject to approval, as it
must always reflect a degree in Electrical Engineering. Candidate may take up to 2 graduate level modules from other
departments, i.e., those without EE codes, subject to approval.
Other elective modules may be chosen from within the Department. Modules taken outside the Department are subject to
the general guidelines and Departments approval.
M.Sc. (ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING) - WITHOUT A SPECIALIZATION
Student who did not opt for a specialization will need to meet the course requirement of at least 40 modular credits
(inclusive of foundation/core modules, where required) of which at least 30 MCs must be at graduate level within the
related disciplines, and the remaining credits may be from other levels in the same or other disciplines subject to the
approval of the Department.

The Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Environmental Engineering is structured around lectures, continual assessments and endof-semester examinations. Candidates may opt for part time or full-time study.
Part-time students will normally read 2 graduate modules equivalent to 8 MCs per semester and attend lectures two
evenings per week. Full-time students will normally read 3-4 graduate modules equivalent to 12-16 MCs per semester and
attend lectures three-four evenings per week.
A candidate needs to complete a program of study consisting of 1 core module and at least 9 elective or other approved
modules.
Some modules may have prerequisites. It is the candidates responsibility to ensure that the prerequisites requirements, if
any, are met.
Candidates should also note that the final composition of graduate modules proposed by themselves is subject to approval
by Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Candidates may, as a part of the 10-module requirement for the
MSc and subject to approval by Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, take up to 2 graduate modules not
exceeding 10 MCs that are from other departments/faculties.
Degree Requirements
The graduate requirements include obtaining a minimum Cumulative Average Point (CAP) of 3.0 (equivalent to an average
of Grade of B-) for the best 40 Modular Credits (MCs), inclusive of core module. Of the 40 MCs, all must be at graduate
level and at least 30 MCs must be within the subject or in a related discipline, while the remaining credits may be from
other disciplines as approved by Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Environmental Engineering.
A candidate must successfully complete a programme of study with at least 40 Modular Credits (MCs), comprising:
(a) 28 MCs from the list of core modules; and
(b) the remaining MCs from the list of elective modules
In addition, a student must obtain a minimum CAP of 3.0 (Grade B-) for the best modules equivalent to 40 MCs, inclusive
of the core modules. Furthermore, the grade point obtained for each of the 7 core modules must be at least 2.5 (Grade C+).
A student is allowed one re-take for at most two core modules if the grade point obtained is less than 2.5 (Grade C+). A
student must also obtain satisfactory progress during his/her candidature.
Generally, students are not allowed to retake a module which they have read previously (e.g. during their B.Eng.
candidature). However, where a student has taken a core module of the M.Sc.(Geotec) programme during his NUS
B.Eng./B.Tech degree programme and obtained a grade below C+, the student may, subject to Departments approval, be

GUIDE FOR INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS

IMMIGRATION MATTERS
International students who are successful in gaining admission to their respective full-time M.Sc. programmes must note
that their offer of admission is conditional upon the successful application of their Students Pass.
The Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) has implemented a web-based system for Students Pass application
called the Students Pass Online Application & Registration (SOLAR).
When full-time International students have been offered admission to our programmes, the University will proceed with
the Students Pass application via SOLAR and also write to inform candidates how to complete the application process
at their end. After candidates complete the application through SOLAR, ICA will process the application.
For candidates from countries which require a visa to enter Singapore (details can be found at
