  1. Your Guide to Research Opportunities @NJC STaR Programme Office of Research

  2. H3 vs Non-H3 • There are 2 concentrations of research programmes at NJC • Certain extended research projects are considered as H3. These are graded. • Others are purely for personal enrichment purpose.

  3. Eligibilities • H3 • Offered to IP3 and JC1 students only • Non-H3 • Offered to IP2, IP3 and JC1 students • Strong interest in research

  4. H3 Programmes

  5. Science Research Programme (SRP) • organised by NUS • Mentored and Assessed by NUS lecturers • Offers a wide range of Science & Engineering Projects • Projects last from July-Dec • Total fees : $500 • Students pay $300; MOE subsidies $200 H3 – SRP (for all Pre-U1 Science students)

  6. SRP • No. of Placements: About 80 (nationwide) • Individual work • Eligibility: 6 points or less for EL and 4 best MA or SC subjects • Selection Criteria: Attitude, Aptitude Test & Research Method Modules • Application Deadline: Feb • Attachment Period: July to Dec H3 – SRP (for all Pre-U1 Science students)

  7. H3 Science Training and Research (H3 STaR) • Organised by NJC for NJC students only • Assessed by NUS lecturers & NJC Teachers • Mentored by scientists from • Institute of Molecular Cell Biology (IMCB) • Some projects commence in June; others in Nov-Dec • Institute of Chemical and Engineering Sciences (ICES) • 7 weeks in Nov-Dec • Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) • Majority will commence in June and end in Dec H3 STaR (for all NJC Pre-U1 Science students)

  8. H3 STaR • 30 placements (NJC Science) • Offered to all IP3 and JC1 students • Individual work • About 180 hours • Similar selection criteria as SRP • Total fees : $500 • Students pay $300; MOE subsidies $200 H3 STaR (for all NJC Pre-U1 Science students)

  9. Non-H3 Programmes

  10. Enrichment Science Training and Research (E-STaR) Programme • organised by NJC for NJC students • Mentored by scientists from • Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) • Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC) • Defence Science & Technology (DSTA) • Offered only to IP2 or IP3 Singaporean students • Attachment from Nov to Jan Non-H3: E-STaR (for all NJC Pre-U1 Science students)

  11. E-STaR Programme • Mentored by scientists from • Institute of Environmental Science and Engineering (IESE) • Division of Physics & Applied Physics, NTU • All except for DSTA projects last from June-Dec • Projects can be extended for another year under the same mentor given both student and mentor are interested. • Individual or pair work Non-H3: E-STaR

  12. E-STaR Programme • Who’s eligible? • attachment at IBN, IESE, IHPC : opened to all IP2/IP3/JC1 students. • attachment at DSTA : opened to only IP2/IP3 students • A total aggregate for English & 4 other Science & Maths of not more than 8 points for JC1 students Non-H3: E-STaR

  13. Nanyang Research Programme (NRP) • organised by NTU • Mentored by NTU lecturers • Projects last from Mar-Dec • 25 students to be nominated from NJC • Aggregate of 8 or below for 6 ‘O’ level including English, Maths and Sci. • Who’s eligible? • IP2, IP3 and JC1 students Non-H3: NRP (for all IP2 and Pre-U1 students)

  14. NRP • Projects offered by the Schools of …. • Civil & Environmental Engineering • Electrical & Electronic Engineering • Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering • Computer Engineering • Material Engineering • Biological Sciences • Physical & Mathematical Sciences • Chemical & Biomedical Engineering • Humanities & Social Sciences • Communication & Information • Art, Design & Media • NIE • Nanyang Business School Non-H3: NRP (for all IP2 and Pre-U1 students)

  24. How do you apply?

  25. Applications • All students must complete NJC Research application forms • Students applying to external programme such as NRP are strongly encouraged to complete and submit the forms even though NJC is not the organiser. • You will be shortlisted for the RMT.

  26. Applications • Application to H3 and non-H3 programmes is mutually exclusive. • For non-H3 programmes, students can submit multiple applications to E-STaR, NRP, MOE Attachment or REAP but only 1 offer will be made eventually. • Students interested to take H3 can apply to either SRP or H3 STaR or both but only 1 offer will be made eventually. • Timeline: refer to handout and look out for announcement

  27. Applications • Grab a copy of application form at the General Office or • Download from Sigma Labs website http:/www.njc.edu.sg/science/sigma • Look out for info at BUZZ • Application period: 9-13 Jan
