Introduction

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has a distinguished lineage with roots that go back to 1955, when Nanyang University (Nantah), the first Chinese-language university in Southeast Asia, was set up with donations from people of all walks of life, from Singapore and the region. Nanyang Technological Institute (NTI) was established on the same campus in 1981 with government funding to educate practice-oriented engineers for the burgeoning Singapore economy. In 1991, NTI became Nanyang Technological University with the absorption of the National Institute of Education. The alumni rolls of the former Nanyang University were transferred to NTU in 1996. In April 2006, NTU was corporatised. Autonomy brings about increased flexibility and new opportunities, allowing NTU to draw on its strengths to enhance global education and research. Through its 12 schools organized under a four-college structure, and two autonomous entities, the National Institute of Education and S Rajaratnam School of International Studies, NTU provides a high-quality global education to more than 19,100 undergraduates and 8,600 graduate students.
