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.
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.

The only chance I get to really do the things I like in life; pure research in mechanical engineering (I'm a full-time employee and it doesn't get enough boring/restrictive in what i want to work on, plus there is a lack of resources for such activities in...
I have no regrets about pursuing my Master's from NTU. However, being a research intensive university, there are professors who don't really care about teaching. So some courses might be a bit difficult because you have to do it yourself. Singapore is a beautiful place and NTU has a lovely campus. Expenses are high because Singapore is an expensive place so you have to...
