EDB-Industrial Postgraduate Program (EDB-IPP)
The aim of EDB's Industrial Postgraduate Program (IPP) is to build a pool of PhD manpower in Singapore with critical R&D skill sets for roles in industry through graduate training in a corporate R&D environment. NUS principal investigators will need to link up with locally-based companies that have established R&D labs and strong R&D capabilities in Singapore to propose an IPP project for EDB's consideration. Students will be jointly selected by NUS and the company, and jointly supervised by NUS faculty members as well as non-academic industry supervisors/mentors from the company. By default, students will be "employees" of the company and are expected to spend at least 50% of the research project activity within the company's facility.
