Module Mappings and Selection of Modules
For cohort AY 2014 onwards:-
- Students should take note of the following important academic policies (see the general information section of the NUS Bulletin for more details):
- 60MC limit on level 1000 modules
- Minimum graded MCs (NUS modules with assigned Letter-grades ‘A+’ to ‘D’, ‘CS’ grade or ‘S’-grade) counted towards Degree, Major, and Minor Requirements:
- A minimum of 50% for degree requirements (residency);
- A minimum of 60% for programme requirements; and
- A minimum of 16MC for minor requirements
- For more information, please refer to website here.
- The policy of minimum workload of 18 MCs per semester will be applicable to all new and returning students with effect from AY2015/16.
- For students who are unable to map up to 18MCs due to restrictions at Partner Universities, you may write in to your department for approval. Please detail how you will be able to graduate on time (i.e., within 3 years for 120MC programmes and 4 years for 160MC programmes), despite falling below the minimum workload required. Exceptions to the 18 MCs minimum workload will be considered on a case by case basis (e.g., for 2nd year students who have accumulated greater than 40 MCs; 3rd year students who have accumulated greater than 80 MCs).
Selection of Modules
- Students are allowed to map core modules, Technical Electives (TE), Unrestricted Elective Modules (UEM), General Education modules (GE) (mapping not allowed for AY2015 cohort students) and Breadth (not applicable for AY2015 cohort students) modules.
- Students are allowed to map modules to fulfil specialization modules. However, for students who wish to map modules to fulfil specialization but is unable to find specific modules to map to, please map to a dummy TE and state in your mapping that you wish to fulfil specialization. The mapping will be sent to specialization coordinator for approval.
- For students doing ME3103, it contains mechanical product/system design and fabrication/testing of prototype(s). Students may refer to Design Curriculum Schedule under ‘Mapping for ME3103’ for design module mapping.
- The content must be at least 50% similar to which of NUS module that you are mapping to.
- Students are to choose their modules wisely by providing full information before submitting for approval as there is a limit of 20 mappings that students can send.
- Students are to check the contents of the modules in both the ME Department catalogue as well as in the modules outlines in IVLE before sending for modules mapping approval.
- Dummy codes e.g ME3661, ME3662, ME3663, ME4661, ME4662, ME4663 will be used for unmatched ME Technical Electives. Dummy Codes e.g ME3991,…, ME3995, ME4991, …, ME4995 are used for Offshore Oil & Gas Technology specialisation technical electives (particularly for Texas at Austin, Texas A&M, University of Aberdeen).
- To expedite the mapping process, students are to check thoroughly for matching TEs and Core modules before requesting to map as dummy TEs. Students will only be allowed to map to Dummy TEs when there are no corresponding matching TEs or Core modules in NUS.
- To map Dummy UEM, you may use the following codes, EX3887, EX3888, EX4883, EX4884, which are worth 4MCs each.
- Students are NOT to repeat modules at PU that they have taken in NUS, and map them as Dummy TEs
