Asian School of the Environment (ASE)

The Asian School of the Environment (ASE) at NTU is an interdisciplinary School that will be a world leader in environmental research focused on Asian environmental challenges. The ASE integrates earth and environmental life science, ecology, engineering and technology, human ecology​, hum​anities, and the social sciences to address key issues of the environment and sustainability.

Apart from the academic programs, the school focusses on research in marine ecology, volcanology, environmental genomics and earthquakes. The ASE researchers work towards goals such as: 

  • Better sea level rise risk assessment for the millions of people living in low elevation coastal zones
  • Sustainable management of tropical peatlands for fire and haze prevention, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions
  • Improved forecasts of the magnitude and character of volcanic and earthquake activity
  • Risk assessment of unprecedented weather patterns created by climate change
  • Understanding the response of tropical marine and terrestrial ecosystems to global warming, ocean acidification, deforestation, biodiversity loss.
