Current Students


Students in the Environmental Earth Systems Science undergraduate major choose a specialisation in the second year. In addition to the core maths, sciences, Earth science, and ecology courses, these students take upper-level courses that continue to deepen their understanding of Earth, ecological, and environmental life sciences.  

Research & Internship

Undergraduates in the Environmental Earth Systems Science major have the opportunity to conduct a Final Year Research Project or Industrial Attachment during their final year of study. Both of these programmes (by application only) can be taken instead of electives within the major.

Undergraduate research is a valuable opportunity to conduct a project in collaboration with a faculty member. This type of research project will give you the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge that you have gained during your course of study. Some students may conduct work in the field and analyse the results, while others might be more excited about a project that uses computational data analysis or work in an Earth science laboratory at NTU. In collaboration with faculty from ASE, and even with paired faculty advisors from two or more departments, you can develop your own research project that reflects your interests and strengths as a student, or you can choose to apply to a...
