New strategic plan emphasises remaking learning, innovation and interdisciplinary collaboration


NTU has launched its new NTU 2025 strategic plan that will serve as the University’s roadmap for the next five years to achieve its education, research and innovation ambitions and goals against a backdrop of changes brought about by the accelerating pace of technology, and the challenges facing humanity in the post-COVID world.

At the top of the University’s ambitious agenda is the transformation of learning. Undergraduates will be offered new interdisciplinary degree programmes, core curricula and internships to enrich their disciplinary training. NTU will also establish a new Institute for Pedagogical Innovation, Research and Excellence (InsPIRE).

NTU 2025 was launched at the University's Town Hall on 25 January 2021, where NTU President Professor Subra Suresh highlighted three major goals for the University – achieving uniformity of excellence in all activities; growing NTU's national and global impact; and fostering transformative interdisciplinary interactions across NTU’s Colleges and Schools.

The plan reinforces a strong commitment to the University’s core pillars of education, research and innovation, with the addition of the OneNTU Community as a new pillar.

Professor Subra Suresh said, “The NTU 2025 vision and the launch this year of new degrees, core curricular offerings, experiential learning, and internship opportunities to all our undergraduate students and to doctoral students will help transform our education ecosystem. This will also help our students to better prepare not only for successful careers but also for a lifetime of learning, impact and service to society.”
