anw are all of u guys (riz, needtoknow and lurv) going for this course?
Glad you found the link useful!!

Oh no, I will not be going for this course already, although I went for the Admissions Day and got to know a couple of people there..

My appeal result for NUS Business Admin was released just 2 days after I went for the SDE Admissions Day.. My appeal was successful. My place in PFM is automatically given away..

Haha.. So those who are appealing for PFM keep your hopes up!!

hi, i am interested in applying to project and facilites management, would like to ask seniors here for this course,

1) How's the curriculum and culture like in SDE? Alot presentations? Exam base?the mode of assessment is it more theory based or more calculation based?
2) are there alot of foreign students in this course? as compare to like engineering school.

cos im considering doing a switch. was from poly IT.

I'm also interested in PFM . My UAS is around 78. Is PFM really not a good course? It sounds rather unpopular :x

The first thing everyone hears about NUS School of Design and Environment or PFM, they will ask, "What is SDE?" or "What is PFM".

It's not as mainstream or popular as business or FASS but overall, it's still a decent course.

Even though it's project management, they train you to manage construction projects. If you hate construction, then I suggest you apply for other courses

yea, it's not as popular as biz and fass. it is definitely nt as popular as engine and sci too.
wouldn't it be considered as the least popular faculty in NUS. so guys think abt it. :/

Hmm but wouldn't you pick up skills from pfm? As in when you graduate, you can try out jobs beyond quantity surveyors or project managers? Cos for bioengineering sort of courses they are kinda of general.
