NTU-Alibaba extends programme for R&D talents

To nurture R&D talents in Artificial Intelligence and other related areas, Alibaba Group and NTU Singapore announce that the Alibaba Talent Programme (ATP) will continue for a fourth year to support outstanding undergraduate and masters’ graduates to pursue their Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees.

The ATP in NTU sponsors Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents to pursue their postgraduate degrees in computer science disciplines at NTU Singapore, while completing an industrial R&D project at Alibaba.

This provides a unique opportunity for students to have hands-on experience at one or more of Alibaba’s research facilities, including the Alibaba-NTU Singapore Joint Research Institute (JRI), Alibaba’s first facility of its kind outside of its China headquarters. Each PhD candidate is mentored by at least one supervisor from NTU, and one co-supervisor from Alibaba.

New applicants can join the program in its Semester 1 intake in August 2022 or Semester 2 intake in January 2023.
