About NEWRIEdu

The NEWRI Education Unit endeav​ours to prepare students in the fundamentals and for professional careers, and who are imbued with passion for sustainability. This helps provide for an effective source of manpower for the industry and shapes future leaders for Singapore, the region and beyond – leaders who are sensitive to environmental needs and sustainability.


As the education arm of NEWRI, the unit collaborates closely with various colleges and schools, especially with the Interdisciplinary Graduate Schools (IGS) for the recruitment of NEWRI students. While the candidates are enrolled with the respective schools for their course work, their research work is supported by NEWRI’s research centres in well-equipped laboratories with capacities and capabilities related to their particular domain, including membranes, biotechnology, chemistry, mathematical modelling and waste management.
