Prof Gan Chee Lip.jpgThe Renaissance Engineering Programme (REP) is a Premier Scholars Programme that aims to nurture students as future leaders of industry. REP provides a broad-based, inter-disciplinary engineering education, which integrates engineering, science, business, technology management and humanities. This unique curriculum is designed to nurture engineering leaders with an entrepreneurial spirit to serve society with integrity and excellence.

The unique curriculum spans over 4.5 years and awards two degrees concurrently upon graduation: a Bachelor of Engineering Science with specialisation in a preferred engineering discipline offered by NTU's College of Engineering, and a Master of Science in Technology Management awarded by the Nanyang Business School.

REP is a fully residential programme which includes a one year overseas experience that entails studying in a renowned partner university such as University of California, Berkeley (USA), Imperial College London (UK), Northwestern University (USA) and University of British Columbia (Vancouver ) and overseas Professional Attachment. This lays the foundation for global perspective and cross-cultural capability that is critical for future leaders.

Lessons are conducted in new pedagogies of learning and teaching such as the flipped classroom and Team-Based Learning, and taught by top faculty drawn from the University. This provides a transformational, highly interactive and learner-driven educational experience that enhances the learning of soft-skills such as teamwork. Students also undergo a structured leadership course known as the Renaissance Engineers Advance in Leadership.

REP has become the top engineering programme in Singapore since its inception 6 years ago. Our students have won various competitions such as the global Shell Ideas360, Singapore Airlines (SIA) App Challenge, IEEE iNTUition Hackathon. They also presented at prestigious conferences like the International Conference of Undergraduate Research, establishing REP's name internationally.

REP aims to attract the very best of tertiary students with proven academic excellence, sound character, and dedication towards improving the lives of others. It is our mission at REP to inspire and educate students to be technology transformers with an entrepreneurial spirit, and with character of the highest standards.

Welcome to REP.
