The Double Degree Programme is based on an institutionally innovative concept under which students spend one year of study each in Singapore and The Netherlands and receive two M.Sc. degrees, one from each University. It is offered annually with its inaugural cohort started in August 2009.
The NUS-TUD Double M.Sc. Degree Programme (DDP) is a two-year full-time programme. To graduate, students must complete an exciting mix of coursework and research. Students are expected to spend two semesters at each institution. Due to the difference in academic calendars between NUS and TUD, the first semester of the first academic year must be completed in NUS and the second semester of the same academic year in TUD. The 3rd and 4th semesters may be completed at either institution depending on the choice of electives and the location of the primary supervisor for the M.Sc. Thesis topic.
The curriculum consists of core requirements, elective requirements, additional research requirements and breadth requirements.
