Tips for Admission in National University of Singapore
#11
This is post no. 11 under the main topic.
Hi Barun,

Well, NUS has a nice record of taking in a couple of Indian students for PhD every year, directly after B.Tech, if they have cleared GATE with a good percentile (90 percentile being the cut-off). Please refer this pdf link for further clarification.

If there's anything else you need to know, feel free to shed your queries!

All the best!

Hi Sir .
Is it necessary to have TOEFL or IELTS scores for getting admission in NUS along with GATE score ?

Hi Barun,

If you have qualified GATE, you need not to have a separate GRE/TOEFL score. It's needed only in the case wherein your language of study wasn't English in 12th and B.Tech.

Hope it answers your query.

Regards

Sunil

Hi Sunil,

I am planning for PhD in NUs/NTU in the discipline of mech/aero and field of composites and ndt. My problems are as follows
1. Low %age in BE- 68.84% -2.76 CGPA and Masters CGPA= 7.94/10
Masters in Aero Engg from Madras Institute of technology through gate admission in 2009 and received stipend. GPA was 7.94/10. I had done my theisis at Aeronautical Development establishment (lab of DRDO) in composites and NDT. I have one paper published in a NDE conference. Could not publish more due to govt restrictions. I am giving GRE and TOEFL in Sept and trying to score really good in that. With my %ages if i get a good GRE score is it possible for admit and scholarship? LORs from Scientist, HOD at DRDO and Professor from university (Doctorate). Please let me know if i should apply or its all just a waste of time

Thanks and Regards

Hi Chirag,
I'll recommend a direct interaction with Dr Rajeev Kumar JAIMAN (mperkj@nus.edu.sg) of Department of Mechanical Engg of NUS. Let him know your interest in doing PhD under his guidance, explaining well about your experience at DRDO and your publication(s). Once he responds, let him know of your academic percentage, apart from your GATE qualification and GRE/TOEFL plans. Research well about his profile before you draft a mail.

Reason I'm asking you to do this is that it will ensure the usefulness of applying at NUS. You have bright chances considering a strong candidature in terms of experience, LORs and publication. You may apply without a thought, but it would be great to interact with the prospective guide first.

Also, try Dr RAMAKRISHNA SEERAM, Dr. Shailendra P. JOSHI, Dr A SENTHIL Kumar, Dr DUONG Hai Minh, Dr. Manoj Gupta and Dr PALANI Balaya in case he doesn't respond. Try not to send the mails to all of these together.

Best wishes
Sunil

Hi Altamash,
Please find the detailed info on the Research themes of Dept of Mechanical Engineering at NUS CLICK HERE.

Your percentage is low but if it still keeps you in 1st class (as per university degree) then you can apply without a hiccup. I hope your GATE score hasn't expired yet. The placement history of NUS is quite bright so need not to worry about that. During PhD only you'll get a healthy stipend of around INR 80,000 per month. Salaries are often in range of 3000-4000 singapore dollars.

Best wishes
Sunil

Hi Sir.
I wanted to know your view on the same as mentioned above -
I scored a 97.8 percentile in the GATE 2014 (C.Sc. & IT) examination.
However, I have a (relatively) lower-off college score of 2.65/4.0 CGPA which is equivalent to about 66%. Would I be eligible for the M.Sc. by Coursework programme offered by NUS / NTU ? Despite having low scores, I have a good record of extra-curricular activities and work-ex (6-month internship at Reliance Infra + leading Investment Banking firm - both in the Tech field) and also as a Business Development Head at a startup for 5 months. Whilst my score is low, I believe it also qualifies as Second Class Honours (Upper Class or 2:1) as it is above 60% aggr.
Any advice you can proffer shall be highly looked upon and appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Vidyut
