Registration Information



Before the commencement of each semester, all existing students must register for courses that they will be reading in the semester unless they have been granted leave of absence by the University.

  • Check the Personalized Date and Time of Registration from 8 June 2021 (9.00 am onwards) in STARS to ensure that you did not miss your scheduled date. Do not assume that your registration schedule is the same as your peers admitted in the same year because students who have passed more courses could be promoted earlier while those who lag could be in a lower registration study year. However, if you have missed your personalized date of registration, please register for your courses during the add/drop period. Students are to adhere strictly to their personalized registration date/time.
  • If you are unable to complete your Personalized Date and Time registration, you may register any remaining courses on the evening of the same day of your scheduled registration date (5.00 pm – 10.00 pm).
  • Check the examination timetable to ensure that there are no clashes in the Examination dates before you proceed with your registration.
  • Freshmen are not required to register their courses through STARS, as their core courses will be pre-assigned immediately after matriculation.
  • Students can only register according to their curriculum AU load for that semester with additional 1 course.
  • Students who were on Academic Warning/Probation after the release of the AY2020 Semester 2 examination results can only read courses not exceeding their normal curriculum load.
  • If you need to apply for overload, course replacement, time table conflicts, final year project appeal...etc, please complete an Online CEE Course Approval Form via StudentLink - Academic Matters - Survey/Subject Options/FYP - Online CEE Course Approval Form. For lecture clashes, one of the courses must be a repeated course. Clashes of two new courses will not be considered.
  • The instructions and schedule will be communicated to students via email by OAS. Students are therefore expected to check their NTU e-mail account regularly.
  • Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that your registration record is correct and the courses you are within the curriculum applicable to you. Please report to your Course Registration Advisors and Administrators immediately if you have any doubts about your registration record.

Minor in Environmental Management

All NTU students except for those majoring in Civil and Environmental Engineering are eligible to offer and complete the Minor in Environmental Management. In addition, all NTU students can also choose to register for the Minor courses to fulfil the General Education Requirements (GER) of their respective degree programmes.

The Asian environmental engineering industry is huge and rapidly growing. Paradoxically, while rapid urbanization and economic development have led to the widespread destruction of virgin forests and pollution of rivers and lakes, it is the countries with clean and well-managed environments that will continue to attract valuable investments to fuel economic growth. Sustainable economic development therefore dictates that environmental concerns must be properly addressed.

The Minor in Environmental Management is designed to expose students to a wide diversity of subjects on environmental management and planning. Students will be equipped with the essential knowledge and skills on various aspects of protecting and improving our precious land, air and water resources.​

The Minor programme allows students the freedom to take charge of what they want to do. Students can set their own pace and design their own curriculum in a way that best meet their personal needs and aspirations. Students can choose from an initial offering of 8 different courses, worth 3 AUs each.

These courses are listed below. Click on the course code to view the course content.

To be awarded the Minor in Environmental Management, students will have to complete 15 AUs.

Students should also take note that the S/U Option does NOT apply to courses that count towards the requirements for the minor programme.

Note:

The Minor courses can also be used to fulfil the students’ GER-UE (unrestricted electives) requirements. For example, if a student registers three of the EM courses to fulfill their GER-UE requirements, he or she only needs to overload another 6AUs (or 2 more) of the EM courses to complete the Minor programme.

Students Majoring in Bachelor of Engineering (Civil)

Students in the Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) degree programme are not allowed to complete the Minor in Environmental Management, but are allowed to take one or more of the following Minor course(s) to fulfill the General Elective requirements of their degree programme:

Q1. Why should I pursue a Minor in Environmental Management?

Environmental issues are very pervasive and permeate all levels of society. Today’s environmental problems are highly challenging and multidisciplinary in scope, and the Minor in Environmental Management will provide students with a good foundation in environmental management issues and perspectives. In addition, students will have exposure to the wide array of latest cutting-edge environmental technologies under development in School of CEE.

Students with a non-Environmental Engineering major will find the Minor in Environmental Management useful and pertinent, particularly when they embark on professional careers that may involve varying degrees of environmental-related interactions.

NIE students and students who major in Communication Studies may be attracted to pursue the Minor in Environmental Management to strengthen their grasp and understanding of current affairs in the environmental arena.

Entrepreneurial-minded students, perhaps from the Business School may be drawn to the Minor in Environmental Management as it will provide them with an inside track to identify and develop business opportunities in environmental technology.

Students from the Biological and other Sciences may be interested in offering the Minor in Environmental Management to understand how science can impact our knowledge of the environment and affect the formulation of environment-related policies and standards.

The Minor in Environmental Management is designed so that it will appeal to students from all disciplines.

Q2. How relevant is Environmental Management to society today?

Singapore is fast becoming a major regional environmental engineering hub that is adding immense value to the economy through the rigorous creation of new businesses, products, services, capabilities and jobs.

The Asian environmental engineering market is growing sturdily each year. Environmental issues affect all levels of society, including government ministries, public sector agencies, universities and research institutes, as well as multi-national corporations, industry players, environmental consultancies and service providers. Some important growth sectors include water and wastewater reclamation, membrane technologies, desalination, waste reclamation and resource recovery, clean energy, environmental biotechnology and environmental remediation.

Q3. What should I know about the staff teaching the Minor in Environmental Management?

CEE has a highly experienced Environmental Engineering faculty, with many professors coming from world-renowned universities. Many faculty members come with extensive industry experience, having served with key environmental players in government and public sector agencies as well as with leading environmental firms and consultancies. CEE professors are also entrepreneurial, and have spun off successful companies based on academic R&D.

CEE professors also have an established track record in environmental R&D, and have won prestigious awards for their research and development achievements.

Q4. Are there any prerequisites for the EM courses?

No. The Minor in Environmental Management courses are designed to be broad-based to cater to the diverse needs of the NTU-wide student population.

Q5. Is there any order for the minor courses that I should take?

Students may take any five of the eight listed courses in any order.

Q6. Is there any differentiation between students who are interested in doing a Minor and those who will take one or two of the Minor subjects as General Electives? Will I be given priority if I am interested in doing a Minor?

The number of classes and vacancies will be tailored to meet the students’ interest and demand for the Minor in Environmental Management courses. Because the Minor in Environmental Management requires students to complete 15 AUs within the duration of their degree programme, students who offer the Minor will be given preference during subject registration.
