As a new academic programme in Singapore we are dedicated to helping our graduates to find employment. The third year seminar, “Futures in Earth and Environmental Science” is designed to help prepare students for their next steps after their undergraduate studies, by educating them about possible career paths, and helping them to prepare for a successful application process. The Industrial Attachment in the final year of study is also a great way to learn more about employment opportunities after your studies. We provide one-on-one advising to help students plan for their careers.
