I am sure that it is not the same for all curriculum. if you are in the common engineering u , i think we should take certain module which will qualify us to 'apply' for certain streams of engineering at the end of first year.

-the statement above makes me thought that all engineering programs have the same curriculum in the 1st year and we'll be studying in the same group of students regardless of our choice we're admitted for? am i right?
-what are the differences between "common engineering" and "mechanical/civil/electrical engineering" besides we'll be stream in the 2nd yr for "common engineering"??
-is it a good idea to choose "common engineering" if im still nt too sure which engineering i like the most?

btw, what does it mean by "special term" in the academic calendar? what do we do during that period?
common engineering is basically for those who aren't too sure which branch of engin you're most interested in yet. it's more like a buffer year, but you still need to take it seriously though cause your choice of 'which engin to stream into' (in yr 2) depends on your yr 1 results. you take common yr 1 modules such as physics and maths. yep, you may be in the same lecture theatre as those from other engin (:

special sem is for people who want to stay in NUS during the three month break from May-July. you can study and finish some modules so your next semesters in NUS are less stressful! thats the upside. the bad? one module costs 1200 sgd. ouch :/

thx replying evonneching!
sounds like those who're offered common engineering would gotta work harder in the 2nd year since they're taught basics in the 1st year hmm...NTU's engineering are all the same during 1st year.
sounds like im going to repeat what i have learned during stpm too(if im offered common engineering)...physics and maths again!

Haha everyone in engine needs to take math. its a core module meaning that you need it to proceed on to your other engin modules. Don't worry math is not too tough, as long as you don't skip lectures and be consistent in your revision (:

Should we put engineering (common) as compared to other engineering(e.g. Chemical Engineering) in our five choices if we did not hv all As for science subjects in order to have better chance to get into NUS?Any honours program for common engineering?
