Inaugurated on 1 July 1991, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) started out as a teaching university which has today transformed into a research-intensive global university.
Its predecessor institution, Nanyang Technological Institute (NTI), was set up in 1981 on the grounds of the former Nanyang University to educate practice-oriented engineers for the burgeoning Singapore economy.
Today, NTU is a research-intensive institution recognised globally for its impactful research, education and innovation, with strengths in many areas shaping the 4th Industrial Revolution. The NTU Smart Campus is a living test bed for Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative and a model of sustainable living.
As a leading university, research is integral to NTU. It has a vibrant research culture and has created a name internationally for its work in fields such as advanced materials, biomedical engineering, clean energy and environment, computational biology, intelligent systems, nanotechnology and wireless and broadband communication.The strong research culture has resulted in many world-first inventions. In order to continue to contribute and excel at the highest level, NTU through its Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) has formed an advisory panel of several Nobel laureates.
Embracing administrative excellence, NTU also offers a unique professional career to its management and support members. Nestled amid lush greenery in the west of Singapore, it takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Yet, it offers you all of the adrenaline-pumping challenges no different from the fast-paced corporate world. Opportunities are abound for your professional development and growth if you also embrace excellence and challenges.
