Nanyang - Singapore

Connected by a causeway to peninsular Malaysia, Singapore measures only 622 sq km, yet it is home to more than 3 million people. For the most part, their ancestors arrived only within the past 200 years, coming from China, India, Malaysia, and Europe to form one of the world's most vibrant ethnic mixes. Founded in 1819 as a trading center by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, Singapore won its independence in 1965 and has rapidly emerged as one of Asia's economic 'tigers.' It has been Southeast Asia's most modern city for more than a century for a reason. Successive governments have kept it that way through constant change, still in progress. Nevertheless, Singapore is easy to explore independently. The best way is on foot, wandering the streets to discover small shops, a special house, or a temple, or just to observe the daily scene.

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is one of two universities in Singapore. It is internationally known as a fine institute of higher education. The university strongly believes in providing students with a practical education; therefore, it maintains ties with the local business community. Each school within the university has an advisory committee that helps the schools keep up with the changing needs of local industry and the business community.

NTU is located in the southwestern part of Singapore, approximately 25 kilometers from the city center. The campus is well-equipped with modern facilities for teaching and research. Members of the University community study and work in state-of-the art and well-equipped laboratories, lecture theatres and tutorial rooms. Video-conferencing facilities are increasingly being used. Seminars and lectures are supported by facilities that allow multi-media presentations and simultaneous communciation between different lecture theatres and venues.
