FYP-URECA is a Final Year project (FYP) that is conducted as a continuation of an earlier URECA project carried out by a student during his/her 2nd and/or 3rd year of study. It aims to maintain the continuity of students' research experience as far as possible. Under this programme, students will continue with their URECA supervising professors as one of their FYP-URECA supervisors.


The objective of FYP-URECA is to encourage and nurture top NTU students to become researchers by equipping students with the essential research experience and skills. FYP-URECA could also serve as a foundation for their postgraduate studies.
