Nanyang Technological University (Abbreviation: NTU; Malay: Universiti Teknologi Nanyang; Chinese: 南洋理工大学; pinyin: Nányáng Lǐgōng Dàxué; Tamil: நன்யாங் தொழில்நுட்ப பல்கலைக்கழகம்) is one of the two largest public universities in Singapore (the other being the National University of Singapore). Its 200-hectare Yunnan campus, located in the west side of Singapore, is the largest university campus on the island. NTU is also host to the autonomous National Institute of Education, Singapore's main teaching college.

NTU was inaugurated in 1991, originally as an English-medium technical and teaching college occupying the grounds of the former Nanyang University, a Chinese-medium university which had been consolidated into the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 1980. Over the years, NTU has grown to become a full-fledged research university, with a student population of around 33,000.

In recent years, various college and university rankings have placed NTU amongst the top universities in Asia.[4] In 2013, the QS World University Rankings ranked it 41st globally (8th in Asia),[5] a rise of 36 places from four years previously. In the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, it is ranked at 76th globally (11th in Asia),[6] and at 91-100th place in the separate World Reputation Rankings survey.[7] NTU's business school, Nanyang Business School, was been rated by the Economist Intelligence Unit in 2013 as 64th globally (4th in Asia, and top in Singapore).[8]

Campuses[edit]

NTU's primary campus is the 200-hectare Yunnan campus, adjacent to the Jurong West district of Singapore. The campus hosted the Olympic Village for the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2010.[9]

The campus grounds were originally donated by the Singapore Hokkien Association to Nanyang University, a Chinese-medium university inaugurated in 1953. In 1980, the Government of Singapore merged Nanyang University with the University of Singapore to form the present-day National University of Singapore. The following year, the Nanyang University grounds were granted to the Nanyang Technological Institute, a newly formed English-medium engineering college. In 1991, NTI merged with the National Institute of Education (NIE), Singapore's main teaching college, to form the present-day Nanyang Technological University.

Apart from the Yunnan campus, NTU operates a campus at the one-north business park, which is used for some of the university's external collaborations (e.g. the EU Centre and Confucius Institute) as well as alumni clubhouse facilities. A third campus, for the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, is located at Novena in downtown Singapore, near Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

Colleges, Schools and institutes[edit]

The North Spine

NTU is organized into 15 schools, corresponding to different fields of study.[10] The various engineering schools, together with NIE, Nanyang Business School, and the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, have been part of NTU from its inception. More recently, NTU has established additional schools for the biological sciences (2001), humanities and social sciences (2004), physical and mathematical sciences (2005), and art, design and media (2009). In 2013, NTU and Imperial College London jointly established a new medical school, the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, which is based in the Novena campus.[11]

NTU also hosts a number of autonomous institutes: NIE (which is run in close collaboration with Singapore's Ministry of Education); the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies; and two recently established research institutes, the Earth Observatory of Singapore and the Singapore Centre on Environmental Life Sciences Engineering.

College of Engineering[edit]

The College of Engineering is NTU's largest subdivision. It is claimed to be the world's largest engineering college, with a student population of more than 10,000 undergraduates and 3,500 graduates.[12] It consists of six schools specializing in the different engineering disciplines:

Nanyang Business School[edit]

Nanyang Business School is consistently ranked as the top business school in Singapore. It offers undergraduate degrees (with an undergraduate population of around 3,600), as well as MBAs and other post-graduate degrees.

College of Science[edit]

The College of Science consists of two schools. The School of Biological Sciences offers programs in biology. The School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences offers programs in physics, chemistry, and mathematics, as well as an undergraduate degree in Earth science in collaboration with the Earth Observatory of Singapore.

Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine[edit]

The Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine was established in 2013 in collaboration with Imperial College London. Prior to its opening in 2013, the school received record donations of S$400 million, including S$150 million from the Lee Foundation.

College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences[edit]

School of Art, Design and Media

The College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences consists of three schools. The Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information is a school of communication studies; originally established in 1992, it was named after Singapore's former president Wee Kim Wee in 1995.

The School of Art, Design and Media offers an undergraduate program in art, design, and media, as well as graduate degrees in arts research. Its building, which features a sloping grassy roof surrounding a central courtyard, is frequently featured in NTU's promotional materials.[13]

The School of Humanities and Social Sciences offers programs in a wide variety of fields including Chinese, economics, history, and linguistics.

Autonomous institutes[edit]

NTU hosts a number of autonomous research and educational institutes. The National Institute of Education (NIE), Singapore's main teaching college; occupies 16 hectares in the western part of NTU's Yunnan campus. Full-time teachers in Singapore's public schools are typically required to complete a post-graduate diploma course at NIE, sponsored by Singapore's Ministry of Education.[14]

The S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, named after Singapore's former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs, offers graduate programs in international relations.

The Singapore Centre on Environmental Life Sciences Engineering is an autonomous research institute, hosted by NTU, which performs research on microbial biofilms. The Earth Observatory of Singapore is an autonomous research institute specializing in Earth science.

Institutes and centres[edit]

NTU has a large number of subsidiary research and educational institutes, including the following:

Academics[edit]

Undergraduate education[edit]

NTU has a total undergraduate population of around 23,500. Approximately 80% of undergraduates are Singaporean citizens and permanent residents. The remaining 20% of international students are mostly from the ASEAN nations, China, and India.

When applying for admission to NTU, applicants are required to specify one (or more) of NTU's schools in which to study. Applicants are offered admission by the individual schools, which have varying admission criteria (after admission, it is possible to appeal for a transfer between schools). Applicants from Singapore must have graduated from a junior college or polytechnic. International students are required to have completed K-12 education; furthermore, as English is the medium of instruction at NTU, students from non-English speaking countries may be required to have an English language proficiency certificate such as IELTS or TOEFL.

Undergraduate tuition is heavy subsidized by the Government of Singapore. Singaporean citizens pay around 27 percent of the base tuition cost.[15] A reduced subsidy is optionally available to Singaporean permanent residents and international students, but with a stipulation: the recipients are contractually required to work for a Singapore-based company for three years after graduation.[16]

Post-graduate education[edit]

NTU has approximately 10,000 graduate students pursuing Master's degrees, doctorates, and other post-graduate degrees. The graduate student population is largely international.

The admission requirements for post-graduate studies vary with the school and the course of study. Several programs require GRE or GMAT scores; typical minimum scores are 320 (GRE verbal/quantitative), 3.5 (GRE analytical), and 600 (GMAT), but these can vary widely between different schools. Applicants from non-English speaking countries are typically required to submit TOEFL or IELTS scores; typical minimum scores are 6.0 (IETL) and 90 (Internet-based TOEFL).[17]

NTU is also the first Kauffman Campus outside the United States, spearheading entrepreneurship in Asia.

Internet learning on campus[edit]

The University is connected to the high speed Internet. All the facilities and resources available over the Internet are accessible by anyone on the campus network. The campus network, which links together all computing systems on the campus, is managed by the University's Centre for IT Services (CITS).

To supplement the fixed-line campus network, NTU implemented a campus-wide wireless network in 2000. This high-speed wireless network, capable of a transfer rate of up to 11 megabits per second, enables NTU staff and students equipped with mobile devices such as notebooks, PCs and PDAs to access all networked services from practically anywhere on the campus without the need of a hardwired network connection. However services like torrents are still blocked.

NTU provides e-learning services via edveNTUre, which is based on BlackBoard technology, provides the framework and eco-system for learning and teaching. Besides providing a repository of lecture recordings, lecture notes, it also facilitates learning activities for collaboration, discussion, assessment and project work. During term time, the usage typically by faculty and students exceeds nine-million page views weekly (Jan 2010).

Controversies[edit]

Renaming controversy[edit]

Although NTU occupies the grounds of the former Nanyang University (NU), and has a similar name, it is not a direct continuation of that institution. In 1980, the Government of Singapore forcibly merged Nanyang University with the University of Singapore to form the present-day National University of Singapore (NUS). This was a source of significant discontent amongst NU students and alumni, because NU had been a Chinese-medium university, whereas the newly merged NUS was (and is) an English-medium university.

As NTU subsequently grew into a full university, various efforts were made to have it claim the Nanyang University mantle. In 1996, the alumni rolls of Nanyang University were transferred from NUS to NTU. In 1998, the prominent local calligrapher and poet Pan Shou, who had been the first vice-chancellor of Nanyang University, called for NTU to be renamed Nanyang University, as a way to “quieten the hearts of many” NU alumni.[56] In 2003, this idea received further support from NTU president Su Guaning, during an interview with the Chinese-language paper Lianhe Zaobao. One reason oferred for the renaming was that, by the mid-2000s, NTU no longer had a narrow focus on technical subjects, but had become a full university including studies in the humanities.

However, the NTU administration's renaming plans soon encountered significant push-back. One NU alumni, Zhu Yong-an, circulated the results of a straw poll in which NU alumni came out strongly against the idea; respondents complained that NTU could not provide "continuity" for the "murdered" Nanyang University.[57] Finally, after Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong weighed in on the affair,[58] the administration dropped the idea quietly in 2006 and has not raised it since.

Tenural denial to Cherian George[edit]

In 2013, there was a debate over academic freedom in Singapore when Associate Professor Cherian George, an outspoken academic at the Wee Kim Wee School of Communications who had publicly criticized Singapore's system of media control and its ruling People’s Action Party.[59] did not get tenured. Although George had been recommended for tenure by the Wee Kim Wee School, his application was turned down by a university-level committee which included representatives from the Government of Singapore. One of the reviewers for the tenure case, Cardiff University's professor Karin Wahl-Jorgensen, expressed outrage at NTU's decision,[60] and George's thesis advisor, Stanford University's Theodore Glasser, raised doubts about "NTU's reputation as a university of international standing" and "NTU's commitment to academic freedom".[61] Despite a petition against the tenure decision by students at the Wee Kim Wee School, George's appeal against the tenure decision was subsequently rejected by the university.[62]
