About Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

A relatively young university, Nanyang Technological University of Singapore was established in 1991 as a teaching university. Now, the university has developed into a research-intensive global university that offers undergraduate and postgraduate education.

There are eight colleges and institutes across which undergraduate and postgraduate studies are offered: business; engineering; humanities, arts and social sciences; science; medicine; graduate studies; education; and international studies.

The university’s main campus in western Singapore is a "smart campus" and has achieved 61 Green Mark Platinum Awards for its buildings. The campus is home to both natural and man-mde works of art and even has a Campus Art Trail for students to explore.

Offering a holistic education, the university aims to give their graduates the 3 C’s: cognitive agility, character, and competence, which is done through interdisciplinary learning and experiential learning. NTU also collaborates with industries, organisations and universities globally to offer students overseas opportunities.
