      The above assumes that students read UEM in Semester 6. However, modules scheduled in Semesters 6 and 7 can be swapped,


                                                                                                                                GMS
      thus students can also choose to go on IA in Semester 7.

The above assumes that students read UEM in Semester 6. However, modules scheduled in Semesters 6 and 7 can be swapped.
Thus, students may also choose to go on IA in Semester 7.

    Modules open only to ISE students with Stage 4 standing.
    Student reading IE5208 will not be allowed to read IE4240, and vice versa.
    These modules are only to be taken by students opting for Specialisation in Product Design.
#    Modules taken under the specialisation programme (PD) are considered as Technical Elective Modules under the ISE programme requirements. If
     students opt out of the specialisation programme, the modules will not be considered as ISE Technical Elective Modules but as UEs.

^         SEP can be taken in Semester 5 or Semester 6. Students can map overseas modules to NUS degree requirements including Core, Technical Elective,
          Unrestricted Electives, Breadth, SS, and GEM, subject to Host Department’s approval. Students are urged to take note of the prerequisites, preclusions
          and the semester that various modules are offered in NUS before they propose their study plan for SEP. This helps to ensure that overseas modules are
          successfully mapped to contribute to the fulfillment of degree requirements.
†
          NOC can be taken for 1 year in Semesters 5-7. Students will graduate with B.Eng. (Hons.) and a Minor in Technopreneurship if minor requirements are
          fulfilled.
