Calendar of Events for Freshmen

On behalf of the staff and students of both Departments of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE), and Computer Science (CS) of NUS, a warm welcome to you.

Even though the first semester begins on 7 August 2017, we have lined up a series of events for you as early as one month before the semester begins.

It is important that you attend these activities to familiarise yourself with the course structure and degree requirements, and at the sametime, be oriented on the use of computing facilities and academic culture in the School. Please also remember to submit your application for various placement tests that are applicable to you by our closing dates.
