About Nanyang Technological University

"Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is a research-intensive university with globally acknowledged strengths in science and engineering. 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. The 200 hectare residential campus, located in the south-western part of Singapore, provides a high-quality global education to more than 23,000 undergraduates and 10,000 graduate students. The student body includes top scholars and international olympiad medallists from the region and beyond. The original Yunnan Garden campus is now a cosmopolitan hub and NTU has a 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. Today, we are ranked among the top 26 technology universities in the world and well within the top 100 among comprehensive universities." - Nanyang Technological University
