Opportunities for Undergraduate Research

​​Learning and Growing with Many Research Opportunities

Pre-research training will be provided to CN Yang Scholars under the Introductory Research Methodology. The course aims to prepare the scholars with the knowledge in research before they embark on their undergraduate research project.

In Year 1 Semester 2, scholars will be given the opportunity to conduct research work at NTU laboratories under the CNYSP Undergraduate Research Experience project. Scholars are given the freedom to choose their topic of research, subject to the Director's approval.

From Year 2 Semester 2 onwards, scholars are allowed to commence research attachment for two continuous semesters at any NTU research institutes or external industrial laboratories. CN Yang Scholars will also undertake an overseas final year project at partner university within 8 months.

The programme also offers financial support for overseas research internship, overseas lab attachment and international conference. Scholars are encouraged to explore such opportunities on their own initiative.
