It seems like Round 0 of CORS (Centralised Online Registration System) has begun. The sadist in me is glad that I don't have to worry about bidding modules anymore, yet I saw many modules related
incoming links. Now that I have my cert with me, I guess I am in a better position to comment on my favourite modules than say, a few months ago.GEK1513 Wireless Communications - Past, Present and Future
Talks about mobile phone, wireless network, etc. Not extremely technical, and gives u insight into why your network reception is so lousy. Free frag for engin and science ppl.MT4003 Engineering Product Development
One of my most enjoyed modules, thanks to the lecturer. You don't need to have in-depth engineering knowledge, but at least you should know something about Carnot cycle. At least you should know car engine is not made of plastic. MT stands for technology management, so it has business elements inside. Mech engin peeps have advantage.GEK2503 Remote Sensing for Earth Observation
I had the most professional teaching team for this module, cos even the TAs are scientists working at CRISP. If you like google earth/map or you like map reading, this module is for you. Lots of hands-on with pretty satellite images. And guess what, I can apply what I learned onto Photoshop.ME3261 Computer-aided Design and Manufacturing
VERY dry. Anyway are there people out there who hire grads to handle CNC machines? But the CAD portion was quite useful, especially learning how curve surfaces are generated. B-spline is like everywhere.GEM2501 Electric Energy - Powering the New Millenium
Learn about power generation and transmission, and how our electricity bill is calculated. Really enjoyed doing the term paper, cos I really felt like doing research at the National Library. Engin and physics guys, free frag.
The rest are like core modules or mods that I don't like. Don't bother choosing our core modules if you are not from mechanical engineering, it takes a special type of human beings :P
When choosing modules, it may help to go into IVLE to look at the module information, workload, requirements (some of us just hate projects while others hate exam. I hate both), glance at the reading list and if you have time, go to the library and take a peep. You may also try going to the NUS Library website to see past year paper. If you can roughly answer the questions, well... you might have hit the right button.
Please note that I am not you and you are not me. What I like or what I scored well in may not be the same case for you. And what happened during my time may not happen again. As such, I will not bear any responsiblity for you failing your module or any thing like that. You have been warned!
