This two-week course brings together world-renowned scientists and engineers including SCELSE scientific leaders, and guest experts. Participants will interact with these experienced mentors in their interdisciplinary approach to understand and harness the biology of biofilms in environmental, health and industrial applications. The course consists of:

  • structured core lectures,
  • topical seminars,
  • guided discussions on specialized topics and case studies,
  • international and regional perspectives
  • exposure to the progress made by Singapore for its water resources.

Learning outcomes involve understanding mechanisms and processes using quantitative approaches. This knowledge will be used to help design experiments that can yield information for developing new technologies or solving problems in the engineered environments.

The course is held in the midst of NTU's rich, green campus. The course format provides ample opportunities for the participants to interact closely with the mentors in small groups and informal settings.
