The Singapore University of Technology and Design has introduced a programme that will allow a select group of students to do research on top of their regular academic load, and upon graduation, proceed with graduate studies immediately.
The programme is called the SUTD Honours and Research Programme (Sharp), and is open to both engineering and architecture students. Qualifying students must have at least two H2 As in mathematics and a science subject in the A levels.
Each student will receive a $15,000 grant. A faculty member will also provide one-on-one research supervision and mentorship.
By the end of the three and a half year programme, students will need to have completed research projects and a research thesis.
Students in the programme will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in either engineering or science, and have the option of applying to take up a direct PhD in engineering or architecture, or a master’s in engineering research.
