The Five-Year Concurrent Degree Programme (CDP) offered by Yale-NUS College and NUS School of Computing (SoC) aims to develop versatile graduates who are able to tackle significant problems in computing in a complex global context. Yale-NUS College’s multidisciplinary intellectual commitment, coupled with its emphasis on leadership, community service, international and professional experiences, will be combined with SoC’s unique exposure to strong technical computing skills, thereby readying graduates to become the next generation of innovative and effective computing professionals.

The programme will accept applications from students during the first semester of their junior year. To apply, students will have to fulfil academic pre-requisites that include taking at least 6 computing modules (ideally including 2 Level 3000 and above at NUS SoC).

Students will spend their junior year mainly pursuing CDP-aligned modules. During their senior year, students will take approved NUS SoC modules while completing their capstone at Yale-NUS College. Students spend their fifth year full-time at NUS SoC.

Students enrolled in the concurrent degree programme will graduate with two degrees, the Yale-NUS Bachelor of Arts/Science (Honours) degree and the NUS Master of Computing, following completion of both a minimum of 140 modular credits (MCs) at Yale-NUS College and 40 MCs at the NUS School of Computing. It is expected that students will be able to complete these requirements in five academic years.

This programme is designed for students who wish to gain advanced and in-depth knowledge of IT to prepare for a career in this field.
