Specialisation

The School of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (CCEB) is offering 2 specialisations in the Bioengineering (BIE) programme which students can choose from. Each specialisation provides specific knowledge and training of skillsets required in emerging industry areas in Singapore and will be reflected on the academic transcript to illustrate its unique qualification that can be useful for career development in the specific field.

The specialisations are:

1) Advanced Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

2) Intellectual Property for Bioengineering

Specialisation Criteria

The following criteria must be met to obtain either of the two specialisations:

• Students are required to complete the compulsory courses and 3 of the elective courses from a particular specialisation area.

• Each specialisation area comprises 2 Core/Unrestricted Elective (UE) courses and 3 Major Prescribed Elective (MPE) courses.

• If a student has read all the compulsory courses and elective courses from any of the specialisation area, regardless of whether the courses were read as Core, MPE or UE, the student will be deemed to have attained specialisation in that particular area. Students are not allowed to exercise S/U for the Unrestricted Elective contributing to a specialisation.

 

IMPORTANT

1. Are students allowed to overload MPE?

No. Your MPE quota is as per allocated in your graduation requirement (9AUs). No overloading of MPE is allowed. If you have previously utilised your MPEs AUs on nonspecialisation MPEs, you will not be able to earn the specialisation.

2. Are students allowed to appeal for MPE if the class slots have been filled up?

No. Do note some of the MPEs are popular and/or have limited vacancies. Registration for the MPEs will be done during your personalised course registration period or during add/drop. If you do not manage to register for the MPEs of your chosen specialisation, you will not be able to earn the specialisation. Appeal for slot of MPEs will not be accepted.

3. I have completed some courses (Core/MPE) under a specialisation area during a study exchange programme (GEM Explorer/Fee-Paying/SUSEP). Can these courses be counted towards the specialisation?

Yes. Courses that have been approved by the School to be matched to NTU-SCBE course can be considered as a course fulfilling the specialisation although it is graded as Pass/Fail.
