Starting from 2020 intake onwards, School of Science will divide the Science Program (JS5100) into two new program choices – Science (Group A) program (JS5102) and Science (Group B) program (JS5103). The two Science programs are designed to cater the academic needs and aspirations of students. Science (Group A) program is tailor-made for those students who are interested in the fields of Physical Science. Science (Group B) program is more suitable for those students who are interested in the fields of Chemistry and Life Science.
IRE is a pioneer study track tailor-made for students with particular interest in pursuing a research career in Science or broadening their exposure to research during their undergraduate studies. It offers students an early opportunity to nurture their research abilities in addition to discipline-specific knowledge in regular Science programs.
The IRE program has similar curriculum structure as the Science (Group A) and Science (Group B) programs. But students admitted to the IRE program can enjoy FREE choice among six major programs offered by the School: Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Ocean Science and Technology, and Physics.
It further distinguishes itself from regular Science programs by providing students with
- Admission to the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP),
- Exchange and internship opportunities in renowned foreign universities / research institutes
- Summer research internship opportunity in foreign universities and institutions
- Scholarship support for overseas learning trips
