In this next 12 months, students will also pursue their choice specialisations in the respective TDSI’s partner universities. Upon completion, all MDTS students will be awarded a Master of Science degree in Defence Technology and Systems from NUS, and another Master of Science degree in a specialised discipline by either NPS, AFIT or Cranfield University.
