lucky u! your GPA must be quite high? 3.++?

have you decided which to accept? i dont know what is the difference between a bach of tech and engineering. I just searched, realise that NUS part time offers only Btech while their full time course is Beng.

Anyway, for those who got a phone interview under EEE prof, did he mention that in year 2 have to do a industrial attachment (internship)? find it weird as we all have full time jobs... idk how im going to complete the IA :(
Ya my gpa got 3.+

nus offered me on March and then I accepted. After that I got the NTU offer end of April, so now I am still considering 🤯 but I think I will accept NTU

Ahh i see, for NUS they just straight accept without any phone interview right?

What's your reason for choosing NTU over NUS if i may ask? :) I know that NTU gives same cert for part time students as they give full time students. NUS Btech is not offered to full time students. In terms of the curriculum, i dont know much...but i think NTU is cheaper

Ya nus no interview

Certificate is one of the reasons as NTU gives the same Beng with Full time but of course this means that we have the same syllabus with full time also(not sure if I can cope 🙃)
Besides this , I got the information from website, class sessions during weekdays for NTU is from 7 pm to 10pm while NUS is from 6pm to 9:30.

is NTU cheaper? For the school fee I think Nus Btech cheaper.

My friend who's gpa 3.8+ also got into NUS part time v quickly. Im guessing they excel sort acc to highest to lowest GPA and admit the applicants hahha....

Oh i see...i attended their zoom sessions where they spoke about the number of credit units/academic units required to complete the course. Aft i calculate, NTU is cheaper: 97 AU x $202 + $99.7 (admin fee per year). NUS: 160 CU x $143 + $234 (admin fee per sem).

I tried searching their website for AU needed to complete the degree recently. I cant seem to find anything so idk if my info is still accurate....

Hey man. Not yet any phone calls / rejection email.. as the day gets closer to appeal I panicked & called NTU admin. A lady told me to appeal as per normal if by 10 May I’m still dont hear anything.. or to email them the appeal accordingly. 😕 I’m so determined to study and with my company support with flexibility.. all comes in good arrangement but NTU hasn’t give any answer 🤣

Hi, dont mean to scare you but computer science is super duper competitive.

Heard that for this year full time computer science cohort , even a GPA of 3.9 was not able to enter , they predict that only GPA of 3.95 and above was able to enter, same goes for jc students. Even those with very high rank point was not able to enter as well.

did u try applying for NUS EEE also?
I don’t think NUS offers EEE. They only offers electronic engineering. My work quite specific that it has to be electrical as I work under power, not really much of electronic background at work.

Hi Anjali,

From what I understand from this thread for part time mechanical and triple e , those that enter usually have a gpa of 2.4 and above. I would say 2.66 stand a high chance. However, since the course you are applying to is computer science which may be very competitive for part time students as well , it would be wise to think that the gpa to enter would increase as well. It also depends on the intake cohort, if everyone have high gpa then it is likely that the spot will be taken up by them. Do be mentally prepared to appeal if required !

Hope this helps and all the best ! :)

What are you working as now? As far as I know I’ll recommend studying what you’re currently working right now, that provides if you’re interested in your work. That way, there’s a higher chance to fight for higher salary after you graduate from degree.

as for mech & EEE career options. I would say both are very much different but prospect are almost equal. No need to scared can’t find job.
