NTU Stats Bites
I chanced upon the statistics page for NTU freshies. It's amazing to see the huge disparity between males and females intakes for different courses.
Have a look at this:
Biomedical Sciences: Females - 126 ; Males - 9
Chemistry and Biological Chemistry: Females - 305 ; Males - 55
Communication Studies: Females - 555 ; Males - 130
English: Females - 114 ; Males - 14
Now don't think that NTU is full of girls. You will be more shocked looking at the figures below:
Aerospace Engineering: Males - 118 ; Females - 34
Computer Engineering: Males - 1199 ; Females - 244
Electrical and Electronic Engineering: Males - 2114 ; Females - 759
In the end, there's 10,317 male freshies and 8,797 females freshies this year. We are still not running away from stereotypes, whereby art-sy courses are dominated by girls and engineering by guys. That's why Nanyang TECHNOLOGICAL University will always have more guys than girls. Good news for the girls and bad for the guys.
The only course with equal intake is Mathematics&Economics: 15 each. The course itself is balanced out in terms of yin (Econs) and yang (Maths) anyway.
Unfortunately, Psychology belongs to the first category: 128 girls and 32 guys. *frowns* Haha..
