NTU School of Biological Sciences (SBS) explores new knowledge and discoveries in molecular biology that will have major impact on the life sciences, widely acknowledged as the next technological revolution after the internet.
Many governments, life sciences industries, universities and research organisations are building up their capabilities, research and infrastructure in this area. Our graduates are expected to fill the rapidly increasing demand for a talent pool of high-quality workforce and researchers for the life sciences industry.
Outcome-based learningThe development of technology has enabled learning platforms linked to outcome-based learning objectives, which provide our students with continuous access to the subject content. This not only creates a more interactive classroom environment but provides an avenue for students to develop creative skills in applying their knowledge, essential for future work environment.
Maintaining a relevant curriculumOver the years, the School has ensured our curriculum remains relevant for our students through the establishment of joint programmes in Biomaterials, Psychology, Food Science and technology, Biomedical Structural Biology. We have built a capability in the life sciences through our collaboration with Duke-NUS to offer direct medical pathway for our double major students and have collaborated with the Nanyang School of Business School and Copenhagen Business School to create a double major programme in Biomedical Sciences and BioBusiness.
The rich mix of culture, our varied opportunities for internship and overseas study, and our partnerships with renowned institutes, will provide a global perspective on science and industry for our students..
