The CDP aims to develop versatile graduates able to tackle significant problems in computing in a complex global context. Yale-NUS College’s multidisciplinary intellectual commitment, coupled with its emphasis on leadership, community service, international and professional experiences, will be combined with SoC’s unique exposure to strong technical computing skills, thereby readying graduates to become the next generation of innovative and effective computing professionals.
|Year 2, Semester 2||Schedule appointment with Faculty Advisors (Dr. Aquinas Hobor (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. Olivier Danvy (email@example.com) to discuss academic eligibility and requirements.
Complete academic pre-requisites by Year 4, Sem 1:
- take a minimum of 6 computing modules (either Yale-NUS or NUS SoC), ideally including 2 Level 3000 and above modules at SoC.
|Year 3, Semester 1||Submit the following via email by 31 December:
⁃ completed application form,
⁃ at least 1 recommendation/reference letter(s),
⁃ personal statement,
⁃ academic transcripts,
⁃ other supporting documents such as scholarships, awards or prizes received (if available).
|Year 3, Semester 2||Accept offers and confirm enrollment by end of Semester.
Inform CIPE and relevant Yale-NUS offices (i.e. Registry) of acceptance.
|Year 4||Formally enroll in the CDP, and take 4 modules (Level 4000 and above) at NUS SoC while completing Capstone|
|Year 5||Complete the rest of their MComp at NUS SoC|
Admissions to the concurrent degree programme is highly selective. Students are fully responsible for submitting their application online and in hardcopy. In addition to academic pre-requisites, students admitted to the Programme must have a CAP of 4.0 (excluding common curriculum modules). While all applications will be assessed by the Joint Admissions Committee, final admission decisions will be made by the NUS School of Computing(NUS SoC).
Yale-NUS faculty will provide advising on eligibility, course selection and academic mapping.
CIPE will provide advising on the application materials and statements.
Queries relating to the MComp can be directed to coordinators at NUS SoC via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eligible candidates will be asked to submit the following documents via email by 31 December each year:
Students will obtain a minimum of 180 modular credits (MC) over five years. The MC system will be used for both Yale-NUS College and SoC modules. Yale-NUS College modules are designed as 5 MC while SoC’s are 4 MC in accordance with prevailing practice.
Students are responsible for obtaining the most up-to-date information regarding requirements for their major from their respective faculty/departments. They will receive two separate transcripts reflecting their undergraduate and graduate work.
A variant of the CDP is available to students who wish to pursue one semester abroad in Year Two (Semester Two), or Year Three in any of Yale-NUS College’s Study Abroad partners (more info here).
A typical Semester Abroad student will have to continue to take a full load of courses at the overseas institution that will be recognized as contributing to his/her Major or elective requirements at Yale-NUS College.
