MSE with Nanyang Business School offers a unique degree programme that will equip students with both engineering and business knowledge, as well as competencies relevant for the global marketplace. 

 

Bachelor of Engineering (Materials Engineering) with a Second Major in Business programme integrates the requirements of both the Engineering and Business majors. The curriculum incorporates Business foundation courses along with the Materials Engineering courses. 

 

Admission requirements for this programme, including minimum subject requirements for students with A-level, IB, international and other qualifications, as well as acceptable polytechnic diplomas are available in the NTU Admissions website. 

 

Year 1 GCE ‘A’ Level Qualifications:

At least grade ‘E’ or ‘C6’ in General Paper or Knowledge & Inquiry.

Grade A in at least three of the following H2/’A’ subjects:

  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • Computing
  • Economics
Year 1 IB Qualifications:

At least grade ‘D’ in Extended Essay or Theory of Knowledge.

Grade 7 in at least three of the following HL subjects:

  • Mathematics
  • Physics

  • Biology
  • Computing
  • Economics

Poly Freshmen who are admitted to Year 1 or 2 may apply for the following exemptions:

  • MH1810 Mathematics I
  • MS1008 Introduction to Computational Thinking
  • MS1015 Materials Science
  • MS1016 Thermodynamics of Materials
  • MS2012 Introduction to Manufacturing Processes
  • MS2013 Polymers and Composites
  • MS4012 Quality Control

  1. Exemption for Core modules (except for MH1810 Mathematics I): Student must have obtained at least Grade ‘A’ or above for the relevant diploma modules.

  2. Exemption for MH1810 Mathematics I: Student must have obtained at least Grade ‘B+’ or above for all relevant Engineering Mathematics diploma modules.

  3. Exemption up to 4 relevant Core courses.

Important Notes:

a) Course exemption is only applicable to Freshmen admitted in that particular Academic Year. The exercise will only be conducted in Semester 1.

b) Course exemption is not compulsory. Students have a choice if they wish to participate in the course exemption exercise.

c) Students are strongly encouraged to visit the School’s website to understand the course content coverage for the courses which they wish to apply for exemption. The MSE Course Summary is available here.

d) Students who are granted course exemptions are considered to have earned the credits awarded to the course. However, the exempted courses do not carry grades and hence would not be included in the computation of students’ GPA. Since a student who qualifies for exemption in a particular course is likely to get a good grade for the course if he/she is to read it, being exempted from it would mean that more efforts are required to obtain a good GPA based on higher level courses. On the other hand, exemptions enable students to proceed to advance courses sooner, which in turn may allow them to graduate in a shorter time.

e) Students who are considering course exemptions must ensure that they are truly proficient in those courses, and there are no serious gaps in their knowledge that might affect their learning in other courses. In other words, course exemptions should not come at the expense of the students’ performance to tackle more advance courses during their candidature.

f) In granting exemption of courses on the basis of the students’ relevant certificate/diploma (e.g. A Level or polytechnic diploma), students may wish to take note of the following conditions for the award of the Bachelor of Engineering (Materials Engineering) degree:
