Sustainability, blockchain and quantum tech to be offered in new academic year

NTU Singapore is launching three academic offerings in the new academic year beginning in August to prepare students for a career in the sustainability sector as Singapore transitions to a green economy, as well as in the fast-developing fields of blockchain and quantum technologies.

The new Second Major in Sustainability, open to students enrolled in any single-major degree programme, will equip students with the foundation and practical tools for understanding the concepts of sustainability and applying them to real-world scenarios, and allow them benefit from the job opportunities in this field as the nation pursues its sustainability goals.

For Physics and Applied Physics undergraduates, NTU is launching a Second Major in Quantum Technologies to prepare students for postgraduate work in the fledgling quantum industry, as quantum technologies move rapidly from research into development and commercialisation.

NTU is also offering the Master of Science in Blockchain Technology, a first in Singapore and the Asia Pacific. The postgraduate programme focuses on blockchain technologies and their innovative applications across various sectors, from finance and banking to energy and health care.
