The Chemistry programme at Nanyang Technological University culminates in writing and defending a scientific thesis before a panel of scientific experts.
What you'll study
The division performs world-class research in many fields of chemistry, including biophysical chemistry, nanomaterials, femtosecond and attosecond spectroscopy, microfluidics, atmospheric chemistry, polymer science, chemical biology, pharmaceutical chemistry, organic synthesis, organometallic chemistry, and more.
Student must write a research thesis. Once the student and supervisor have agreed that the thesis is ready, it should be submitted online (via GSLink → Academic → Thesis → Thesis Submission). After being endorsed by the supervisor, the thesis is sent to three independent examiners for evaluation. After this evaluation, the student must defend the thesis in an oral examination scheduled by the school.
Students must complete a total of 16 Academic Units (AU) of graduate-level coursework, comprising:
- CBC729 - Graduate Seminar (4 AU, offered in Semester 1)
- CBC736 - Advanced Chemical Instrumentation (2 AU, offered in Semester 1)
- At least another 10 AU of CBC7XX lecture-based graduate courses
- 4 AU of these 10 AU may be substituted with another graduate course offered by a different School/Division in NTU, subject to approval from the supervisor and the Division.
