SMA programmes provide exceptional opportunities for interaction between students and faculty
Fundamental understanding of the structure and properties of materials, coupled with system-driven design, fabrication and optimisation of materials comprise the core of the multi-disciplinary coursework that prepares students to lead in the development and exploitation of new materials for future micro- and nanosystems. The AMM&NS degree programme also promotes a practice-based understanding of the paths through which critical advances in the fundamental science and engineering of materials impact and often set the pace for the rapid evolution of information processing, communication and sensing technologies, especially those based on systems of micro- and nano-scale devices.
The AMM&NS graduate study also provides an exceptional opportunity for collaborative research between SMA students, world-renowned faculty and industry experts, both in Singapore and the United States. Students have the opportunity to interact with scientists and engineers at a number of research institutes, such as the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) and the Institute of Microelectronics (IME), as well as all the three partner universities: NUS, NTU and MIT.
