Candidates may visit the Faculty directory for research area of faculty and identify the potential supervisor for the M.Eng. or Ph.D. study.
To support advanced research, the School hosts twelve research centres which are well-equipped with sophisticated and state-of-the-art equipment.Programme Structure
Candidates enrolled for a graduate programme by research pursue an independent but supervised research in an approved topic based on which a thesis must be submitted for examination.
Candidates are also required to attend a number of graduate level courses and pass the examinations. Candidates are required to attend classes and pass the examinations to earn at least 9 Academic Units (for e.g. 3 3-AU courses) in M.Eng. study and 18 Academic Units (for e.g. 6 3-AU courses) in Ph.D. study. Candidates have to undergo a Qualifying Examination/Confirmation Exercise within a period stipulated by the school.
Upon the completion of the research, the candidate is required to submit a thesis on his/her research for examination. For the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, there is also an oral examination on the subject matter on his/her thesis and other related subjects.
Application Period Admission is in August or January each year.
Applicants are required to submit online application via the NTU application portal. Please click here for application and admission details. Any other forms of submission will not be accepted. Applicants are advised to submit applications at least 4 months before their desired intake.
Last Day Of Submission With Supporting Documents
Currently, the University is taking in more students who wish to work towards a Ph.D. degree. If you have a good first degree, you are encouraged to apply for admission to our doctoral programme with a NTU research scholarship. There is no bond for the NTU Research scholarships.Research Interest Applicants may visit the Research Centre (http://www.eee.ntu.edu.sg/aboutus/FacultyandStaff/Pages/Home.aspx) to view the faculty members affiliated to the respective research centre and their research interest. Applicants may view the list of Ph.D. and M.Eng. Project Proposals below for the projects proposed for Ph.D. and M.Eng. programme.
Applicants must have a relevant Bachelor’s degree with at least 2nd class Honours upper or Honours (Distinction)* and the ability to pursue research in the candidate’s proposed field of advanced study.
