Interdisciplinary Graduate School (IGS) - Doctor of Philosophy Programme

The Interdisciplinary Graduate School (IGS) focuses on the key research areas within NTU's Peaks of Excellence in Sustainable Earth, New Media and Future Healthcare. Research in these areas span across different disciplines beyond the conventional school-based programmes. Rapid-Rich Object Search (ROSE) Lab is one of the Research Centers under the New Media Peak.

As Singapore looks set for her transformation into a global media city, the Peak of Excellence in New Media provides a timely boost to position the country as one of the key strategic media centers in the Asia-Pacific region.

IGS leverages on professors from all the schools and colleges in NTU to undertake interdisciplinary research and to act as advisors for IGS PhD students. With this approach, IGS aims to train a new generation of PhD students, who are exposed to an intensive seminar culture with ample interaction opportunities. This is in line with the best practices in leading overseas institutions.Forimformation about  IGS Programme, click the link below:
