ITE College East (ITE CE-SM) is a division of the Institute of Technical Education. The campus is the 1st ITE campus and under ITE's "One ITE System, 3 Colleges" plan in Singapore. It is located in the eastern part of Singapore in the estate of Simei. ITE College East covers Nursing, the Life Sciences and Logistics Management.
ITE College East (Simei) opened its gates on August 2004 and started its operations on January the following year.
Before the college system was implemented, the campus was to be named "ITE Regional Campus Simei" due to the campus' size and projected intake as oppose to the other 10 smaller ITE campuses. In 2004, while the campus was still under construction, it was renamed to ITE College East (Simei) under the new college system. Still, some signboards in the campus still show the "ITE Regional Campus Simei" name.
The campus was built in 80 weeks at a cost of S$184.6 million.
