The School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences (SPMS) is a school in NTU's College of Science. We consist of three divisions: Chemistry & Biological Chemistry, Mathematical Sciences, and Physics & Applied Physics. Our collective mission is to forge a world-class centre of scientific education and research.
Our faculty members are world-renowned scientific experts who have won national and international awards. Many are experts in more than one scientific domain; we have chemists creating new materials, mathematicians designing algorithms used in computer science, physicists studying the dynamics of financial markets, and more.
We aim to provide our students with a future-oriented education, combining scientific knowledge with soft skills such as communication and critical thinking. In the coming decades, Singapore (and the rest of the world) will grapple with many complex issues, from climate change to the economic disruptions caused by new technology. Our students must possess not only technical expertise but also the nimbleness of mind to explore new fields. We work hard to ensure that they have the training and opportunities they need, through initiatives ranging from networking events with alumni to our Co-Operative Education Programme, which allows students to undertake structured internships with participating companies.
I invite you to visit the wonderful ecosystem of research and education in SPMS.
