The NUS Graduate School for Integrative Sciences and Engineering (NGS) was established in 2003. Its role was then, and remains to this day, to enhance PhD graduate research and education within NUS. The reputation of NGS has grown over succeeding years and now has a current yearly intake of 60-70 graduates both from Singapore and the rest of the world. The principal purpose of NGS is to promote integrative PhD research encompassing both laboratory work and coursework programmes which not only transcend traditional subject boundaries but also provides students with a depth of experience about science and the way it is carried out which will stand them in good stead in their future careers as leading researchers in whichever scientific disciplines they choose to follow.
