Catering to Singapore’s fine chemical and pharmaceutical industries, the Chemical & Pharmaceutical Engineering (CPE) Programme is designed to train the next generation of technical leaders and to develop new, innovative, high value-added technologies.
Students can enrol for an MIT Masters degree, in conjunction with an NUS Masters or a PhD, and also have the option of applying for an NUS or NTU PhD directly. They are provided practical training in an industrial environment, and during their attachment in industry will work on solving challenging business or research issues in the company.
The CPE flagship research programme and inter-university research programmes focus on (a) metabolic engineering for biosynthesis of small molecules (b) novel routes to homogeneous and heterogeneous chemical synthesis and (c) new technologies based on new concepts rooted in molecular engineering for downstream processing, separations and formulation. These areas will open up new possibilities for bio- and chemical synthesis via enzyme and microbial biocatalysis and organic synthetic methods, as well as novel methods of crystallisation, separations and formulation.
The objective of this workshop and laboratory tour is to reach out to industry for the purpose of collaboration in education and research.
We cordially invite you and your colleagues to attend.
