So am i right to say an NUS graduate would be viewed almost equally as a NTU gradutate? I was wondering if NTU have a more biology-based syllabus as i studied only physics and maths throughout my years and bio might be quite a challange.

for ntu programme there would be 2 or 3 bio core modules...thats all.. but its quite ok... just learn from lectures

i oso nv take bio in jc ....but strangely i did better in bio modules than modules lik organic chemistry , unit operations..

Hmm. Then, if I didn't study Physics in JC, will i be at great disadvantage? I only have combined Physics at 'O' level standard..

Default chem engineering VS chem and biomolecular engineering

Hi all,

What's the difference between Chemical engineering offered in NUS and Chemical and Chemical and biomolecular engineering in NTU?

NTU 's got 1 or 2 more bio modules in yr 1 n 2 , there is a biochemical engineering module in yr 3 and oso more electives lik bioseparations and pharmaceuticals for specialisations....

Not sure abt NUS's.

Smile Industrial Attachment

So i guess the distinguishing factor is the industrial attachment, which affects job prospects!

Will it be a plus point for it to be included in NTU's curriculum?

Thanks

There is no point doing a comparison. Graduates from either NTU or NUS stands well in the eyes of the employers.
If you want to take envy in going to a so called better school, pls do not try for NUS/NTU, they pale in comparison to MIT/Zhejiang/IIT/Imperial university and perhaps at least 50 other universities out there in the world.

At singapore level, pls dun try to compare NUS and NTU. Both are equally ( lousy or good) depending on how you see it.
