The School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences at NTU Singapore is organised into three divisions encompassing the core scientific and mathematical disciplines of Chemistry and Biological Chemistry, Mathematical Sciences, and Physics and Applied Physics.
Note: in August 2022, the Division of Chemistry and Biological Chemistry will merge with the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering to form a new School of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (CCEB). This new interdisciplinary School will be the first in NTU to be established under two different Colleges, the College of Science and the College of Engineering. It will continue to offer the undergraduate and graduate programmes in Chemistry and Biological Chemistry currently offered by the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences.
