Welcome to Nanyang Technological University (NTU). NTU is an internationally reputed research-intensive tertiary institution. Our broad-based education covers science and technology, business and the arts, entrepreneurial and leadership skills to prepare students for the global working world.
Welcome to Nanyang Technological University, Singapore!
Founded in 1955 with funds from millionaires down to the humble trishaw rider, we began as Nanyang University, a university created by the people, for the people. More than half a century later, NTU stands as a worthy successor on the original Yunnan Garden campus, with additional presence in other parts of Singapore, and in China, Europe, India and the United States. We aspire to nurture entrepreneurial leaders through a broad education in diverse disciplines.
While dominated by one of the largest engineering colleges in the world and a top-ranked business school, we have expanded our offerings considerably with the establishment of the College of Science and the College of Humanities, Arts, & Social Sciences. The Yunnan Garden campus is now a cosmopolitan hub with 23,000 undergraduates and 10,000 graduate students from across the globe. Today, we are ranked among the top 26 technology universities in the world and well within the top 100 among comprehensive universities.
As a multi-cultural research university, we are reaching out to the key regions of the world – the United States, Europe, China, India, and beyond, establishing a strong international reputation that has drawn some of the world’s finest researchers and academics to our shores. Today, we have 11 Nobel laureates on the Board of our Institute of Advanced Studies and academic leaders such as Provost Bertil Andersson, a Trustee of the Nobel Foundation. Many other faculty members of high world reputation have joined us, one of whom is eminent geologist Kerry Sieh, who moved from Caltech to NTU to head the Earth Observatory of Singapore, building the Earth Sciences discipline here. Bringing a formidable one-two punch to NTU’s initiatives in New Media are Vibeke Sorensen, the former Chair of the Department of Media in the College of Arts & Sciences at the State University of New York at Buffalo, and Nadia Magnenat-Thalmann, founding Director of MIRALab at the University of Geneva. Prof Sorensen chairs our pioneering art, design and media school, while Prof Magnenat-Thalmann heads the multidisciplinary Institute for Media Innovation.
NTU students benefit from our broad-based education, internship opportunities, global experience and undergraduate research projects. Our Global Immersion Programme offers international experience of up to a year in two locations. The locations include cities and universities in the United States, Europe, China, India, or Vietnam. Vibrant student activities provide opportunities for leadership and team-building.
We invite you to come stroll around our garden campus of gently rolling hills. Come experience for yourself the vibrant campus community. Join the fun and games of our student residents and interact with the hundreds of international faculty living on campus.
