“NGS Seminars” is a platform for students of the Graduate School for Integrative Sciences and Engineering (NGS) to develop their presentation skills by delivering seminar-style talks. Audience members will critically discuss the presented material and provide constructive feedback to their peers. Students will be evaluated by interdisciplinary faculty members who are also NGS supervisors. Prominent interdisciplinary principal investigators, from Singapore and abroad, will be invited to deliver selected seminars about their cutting-edge work. Exposing students to a variety of research topics and themes will broaden their knowledge and help them appreciate the role of interdisciplinarity in today’s ground-breaking research.
