FAST in Temasek Polytechnic School of Engineering
FAST is the acronym for the Flexible Academic System for Temasek, the new credit-based academic system that TP has adopted starting July 2002. This is a new academic model which will offer greater flexibility and choices to students.
The Flexible Academic System for Temasek Engineering adopts a broad engineering education approach. All subjects and/or modules offered are grouped into categories:
- TP CORE SUBJECTS - to develop desired qualities as envisioned in the TP graduate profile;
- DIPLOMA SUBJECTS - to provide students with the necessary technical training, based on engineering fundamentals, breadth and depth of technical areas;
- CROSS-DISCIPLINARY SUBJECTS - to provide students with the flexibility of studying other areas of interest outside their own areas of specialization for personal and professional development
