Breaking Boundaries In Innovation

The School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) at NTU has come a long way since its inception as one of the three founding engineering schools in 1981. As of today, the School of EEE has become a leading research-intensive engineering school in the world and produced over 30,000 electrical engineers who are contributing actively to the economy of Singapore and the world. The school has also produced many impactful research and innovation. One of the spin-off companies, Nanofilm Technologies International, started by an EEE faculty in 1999 has become a high-tech unicorn with a billion-dollar market capitation.

Today, we have over 120 faculty members, 3,000 undergraduate students and more than 1,000 graduate students who have made their choices of quality education at EEE. The School of EEE is ranked among the best global Electrical and Electronic Engineering schools in the world. It is ranked 10th in QS World University Rankings by Subject and 2nd in Asia. It is ranked 2nd in Best Global Universities for Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the US News and World Report and 3rd in Asia. In Shanghai Ranking’s Global Ranking of Academic Subjects, it is ranked 8th in the world and 2nd in Asia.

Enabling unparalleled innovations, the School strives to continue developing strong research capabilities in the domain of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, with research focuses in (1) Data & Information Science and Systems; (2) Autonomous and Intelligent Systems; and (3) Smart Materials, Electronics and Photonics, to address the complex challenges of the 21st century, while raising Singapore’s profile as a top-notch global research hub.
