About

Chemistry students at Nanyang Technological University take advanced courses focusing on active research topics, and perform research under the supervision of a faculty member.

Overview

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.

PhD Thesis

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.

Programme Structure

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
