2.3.4.4.2    Admission Requirements

Students will be admitted to the double degree programme only if they meet the requirements of both the Faculty of Engineering (FoE) and Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS). A committee comprising staff members from both FASS and FoE will review applications.

Students may be admitted to the programme in one of the following ways:
1. Direct application by students with relevant GCE ‘A’ Level or equivalent qualifications — Please apply via Office of Admissions website: nus.edu.sg/oam OR
2. Current students from FoE# or FASS programmes — Students are strongly advised to apply by the end of their first year so as to start the double-degree programme at the beginning of their second year. Students must apply through their home faculties. Short-listed applicants may then be interviewed.

Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences students who plan to enrol after the first year must have read at least two Engineering modules such as MA1505 and MA1506. The selection criteria include the following:

  • Performance in MA1505 and MA1506.
  • Minimum Cumulative Average Point (CAP) of 3.75.

Faculty of Engineering students# who plan to enrol after the first year must have read EC1301 and at least one other Economics module in the first year to enable them to better understand the discipline’s focus and methodologies. The selection criteria include the following:

  • Performance in EC1301.
  • EC2303 must not be taken as the DDP curriculum does not require it.
  • Performance in MA1505 and MA1506 will be taken into consideration as a strong mathematical background would be advantageous in pursuing an Economics degree.
  • Minimum Cumulative Average Point (CAP) of 3.75.

Current students have to apply to the programme through their respective Faculty/School. The application will be forwarded to the partner School/Faculty if the original Faculty/School approves the application.

The applicant’s non-academic activities may be considered, and the applicant may have to attend an interview.
