This exhibition takes us through NTU’s journey from an institute primarily responsible for producing engineers who play a critical role in fuelling Singapore’s economy, into a research-intensive, multi-disciplinary and innovation-driven top global university. In marking our 30th anniversary, we feature 30 perspectives of individuals who were part of this transformative journey, 30 stellar achievements and 30 celebrated moments of NTU.
These highlights are just snippets from NTU’s 30 year-journey, shining the limelight on achievements, shared memories, and representative experiences of people behind this successful transformation.
The journey also brings us from the beginnings of Nanyang University (1955 – 1980) ‘Nantah’, to the establishment of Nanyang Technological Institute (NTI) (1981-1991), and finally the founding of NTU in July 1991 and its development till the present. The exhibition culminates in an exploration of NTU’s next phase of growth—a future shaped by the vision of the university’s leadership, Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, student leaders, and stakeholders. This vision is encapsulated in the NTU 2025 strategic plan, which focuses on strengthening four core pillars: education, research, innovation, and community.
