NUS Module Review: GET1023 GEX1010 Thinking Like An Economist

GET1023 is an easy mod if you are willing to pay attention for 3 hours each week and spend a little time everyday reading. There is not even a need to take note. As Dr.Georgios Georgiou likes to say: “Please do the weekly reading.” That’s enough.

There are 12 chapters in total. The first 5 are easy to read; the other 7 get lengthy and may not be as intuitive. Each chapter comes with some readings – some are already scanned and uploaded, some you will need to find on your own. Check IVLE for the reading list.

This is a General Module so you won’t find past year exam materials readily lying around. In fact, the Department do their best to prevent leaking. There would be some model questions/answers uploaded before each exam but do not at all expect the actual paper to come out that way. “Would you do the harder questions first or the easier questions first ?” and “Explain the proximate and ultimate factors that led to the Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire.” are equally likely to be set. Again, pay attention during lectures and do your readings diligently.

Mid-term should be outrageously long so be prepared. Final is more manageable.

NUS Module Review: GEH1044 Understanding Globalisation

This module proposes to examine the processes of globalization and seeks to provide a deeper understanding of it. The world is globalizing both culturally and economically. We need to ask whether this process is creating a single world without borders or intensifying cultural differences between societies. By discussing various trends of the interdependent world, the course helps us in understanding the various processes of globalization. Since the processes of globalization involve societal, cultural, technological, political, and economic processes, we will take an inter-disciplinary framework in understanding this diverse experience. The course will specifically highlight the problems and prospects of the contemporary world

NUS Module Review: ES2007D Professional Communication

I took this module as part of my core modules for Real Estate during my Year 1 Semester 1. This module is not content-based, but is concerned with the soft skills needed in the professional world. Classes are in a seminar format, in which there is expected to be active participation. Skills such as CV writing, interaction with team mates, and most importantly presentation skills, will be discussed and put into practice.

There are sharing sessions, a mock interview, an individual speech and a final group project report and project presentation, all of which are graded.

NUS Module Review: ES1103 English for Academic Purposes

Content: 8/10

Provides good English foundation & useful academic writing resources. Teaches a wide range of topics (17 total for 17 tutorials, the extra tutorials are consultations, feedback sessions, etc.).

Workload: 3/10

5 CAs are just 2 essays, 1 full essay and another split into 4 parts – First half, First half but better (after peer review), Second half, Combined. Generally, each CA takes about 2-3 days depending on your efforts. Weekly tutorial takes an hour or less to prepare if you want to. Peer review takes half a day to flame help your partners. Text analysis takes about 2 days to prepare powerpoint + analyse text.

Experience: 8/10

This varies between different sessions, but my prof is so nice and friendly. She doesn’t force any participation and her tutorials are just chill. I’m normally anxious in social setting, but the tutorials are so relaxed, and I somehow find myself contributing whenever I feel like it. Compared to GP lessons back in JC, this is so much better. Honestly, it is about the mentality going in, if you keep thinking this module is useless and you are forced to take it, you probably won’t learn and enjoy it.

NUS Module Review: GET1004 Cyber Security

This semester, the only zoom lessons are the 5 E-sessions conducted by Professor Yu, while the rest was pre-recorded from last AY. There are a total of 4quizzes (2.5% each) conducted during the start of the E-session each week. Quiz content will usually be something Prof Yu mentioned during the previous week’s E-session or hidden in one of the links he has put inside the slides for self-reading. The lessons can be skipped after the quiz as they are quite dry and are uploaded onto Luminus which i will recommend watching at 1.5x speed to look out for things Prof Yu emphasises on because they might be tested the following week.

One thing I have to mention is that most of the content which will be tested are based on self-reading as Prof Yu will include a lot of links inside the slides and will put only a minority of test-able content in the actual slides itself. Overall, I found this module quite interesting so I read almost all the links he put. However, I know a lot of my peers found doing so tedious and since Prof Yu will usually provide a lot of anecdotal evidence for the content instead of elaborating in a technical way, it is quite hard to prepare for the tests effectively. Nevertheless, if you have some programming background, most questions in the tests can be answered using some common sense and reading through the slides.

NUS Module Review: GES1038 La Kopi Forging of the Chinese Singaporean Community

Overview:

This module covers the history/culture of the different dialect groups of Chinese in Singapore, from Singapore in the Straits Settlement to its modern day relevance. The lecturer also presents commentary on the Speak Mandarin Campaign and its influence on society. Prof Phua was very passionate in this area which made the lectures much more engaging. It was basically the only lecture of the week which I could sit through entirely without falling asleep haha.

Tutorials:

Alternate week online tutorials were fairly straightforward. We had to go through readings or Luminus multimedia as preparation and these would take 2h max. During the tutorial, we were tasked either to prepare and give a short presentation (1-2 slides long only) or respond to questions prepared by our TA. Tutorial participation was marked accordingly. 2 tutorials were blocked out for us to “attend” our virtual fieldtrip or head down to Telok Ayer personally and that helped lighten the academic workload by a lot.

Assessment:

We were given 1-2 weeks (iirc) to complete our research essay. Both were interesting to do but as an Engr student unfamiliar with essay questions and structures, it might be a struggle, but nothing too out of this world, just something like GP. The final quiz had several questions on the technical aspect of the lectures/guest lecturers itself so advice would be to watch all lectures if you want to score in the finals.

Conclusion:

The content might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but those with even a slight interest, or are critical about one’s own identity as a Chinese in Singapore, should find the content interesting. I had only a passing interest and did not expect to thoroughly enjoy most of this module’s content. It was very enriching and having thought so introspectively for the essay questions. I genuinely think the perspective would be applicable to much of my life. Expected at best an A- because of my mediocre essay but eventually got an A. This module is an easy recommend.

NUS Module Review: GEQ1000 Asking Questions

Difficulty: Negligible

Grade Obtained: CS

Lecturers: Various lecturers

This is module is under the Asking Questions pillar in the GE curriculum and is preallocated unless you have taken some other GEQ module. Luckily, the workload is light.

For a start, this module introduces the different modes of questioning from the perspective of different disciplines; computational thinking, design thinking, engineering, philosophy, science, and the social sciences.

To me, it feels like an exposure module to other faculties and disciplines and their line of questioning when solving problems.

Lectures:

Like GER1000, there are video lectures for each segment. The video lectures are quite long and slow so I usually just 2 – 4x speed though or skip through some of them. Some of them are quite interesting (the game of trust in the econs segment) and some others are more complicated and abstract.

Tutorials:

Tutorials happen once every fortnight and are quite chill, usually, the tutor will just go through some of the concepts of the segment for the week and have us do some exercises to “experience and understand” what was meant in the video lectures. You can survive the tutorials without any prep (watching the lectures) at all but skimming through the lectures or even having a basic understanding would make the tutorial session less boring.

NUS Module Review: GEH1015 Cultural Borrowing Japan and China

This module does not cover modern Japan and China in case you were wondering. So none of that pop culture is involved. Some focus on Buddhism and Confucius

is also involved.

All tests are open book. Mid terms was a timed test during lecture and finals was take home. Besides that there is also a book report(you get to choose from a list of books )and a pretty fun group project. tutorials are super chill with Dr Hislop. I would say that this module tests your ability to put forth your ideas and points clearly, while the content portion can be easily referenced if you have understood the gist of the notes and lectures. I ended up getting an A- and i was very surprised. Overall i would say that the workload of this module is quite low.

NUS Module Review: ES1531 Critical Thinking And Writing

This is a compulsory module for all engineering students, except those who are in special programmes such as RCs, USPs, etc. This module is offered by CELC and covers about the aspects of engineering leadership in the view of Rottmanian model, as well as proposing solutions regarding to current engineering-related issues. The content of this module may be enjoyable to some, but not the others, including me. Therefore, I prepared my SU for this module since day 1.

Dr. Lira is actually an engaging instructor, and I think the best instructor I ever got in NUS thus far since I somehow always have pretty negative impressions for instructors from CELC. She could make the content of this module less boring for me and could stay listening for two hours straight.

The first assignment is an individual writing. You will be given an article of a leader, and you should analyze his/her strength and weaknesses by using Rottmanian model. The second assignment is a group project, creating an essay of solution proposal to tackle a real-world engineering-related issue. The third assignment is a reflection paper.

TLDR: If you cannot write an English essay properly, just ignore this module, sufficiently do your assignments, and SU.
