The Five-Year Concurrent Degree Programme (CDP) offered by Yale-NUS College and NUS School of Computing (NUS Computing) aims to develop versatile graduates who are 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, and international and professional experiences will be combined with NUS Computing’s unique exposure to strong technical computing skills, readying graduates as the next generation of innovative computing professionals.
The programme will accept applications from students during the first semester of their third year at Yale-NUS College. To apply, students will have to fulfil academic prerequisites that include taking at least 6 computing modules, ideally including 2 courses (at Level 3000 and above) at NUS Computing.
Students will spend their third year primarily pursuing CDP-aligned modules. During their fourth year, students will take approved NUS Computing modules while completing their capstone at Yale-NUS College. Students spend their fifth year full-time at NUS SoC.
At the end of their course, students will graduate with two degrees, the Yale-NUS Bachelor of Arts (Honours) or Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree and the NUS Master of Computing. It is expected that students will complete course requirements in five academic years.
This programme is designed for students who wish to gain advanced and in-depth knowledge of information technology to prepare for a career in this field.
