Pushing Boundaries in Research
Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is internationally known for its work in fields such as advanced materials, biomedical engineering, clean energy and environment, computational biology, intelligent systems, nanotechnology and wireless and broadband communication.
NTU has in recent years grown rapidly in research funding, and now has some of the best laboratories and research centres in the world. NTU faculty has a host of opportunities for research funding in a vibrant multidisciplinary environment.
Research Centre of Excellence (RCEs)
NTU houses two RCEs focusing on natural hazards, microbiology, and digital molecular analytics
Life Changing Innovations
Staffed by researchers of international repute, the University's research centres have advanced science and technology with life-changing innovations.
These world-first inventions include a new carbon film disposition technology, artificial heart valves, medical robots, laser fusion of fibre-optic cables, precision engineering technologies, home-grown satellite technologies, automated video surveillance devices, mass commercial farming of temperate crops using aeroponics, and the establishment of a world class MPEG standard.
Research Institutes & Centres
>100 institutes & centres conducting multidisciplinary research to address complex challenges that confront the society of the day
Thriving Research Ecosystem
The University has invested heavily in research, creating some of the best laboratories and research centres in the world. The S$25 million nine-storey Research TechnoPlaza, which forms the University's research hub with four interdisciplinary research corridors and 10 research centres housed in it is a prime example.
Activities of the research centres are linked to their international counterparts, turning the campus into a mini Silicon Valley yielding more landmark innovations, nurturing a new generation of leaders along the way.
Pan University Research Facilities
Shared research facilities provides access to state-of-the-art research equipment to the research community in NTU and beyond
In this vibrant multidisciplinary research environment, both students and staff enjoy a host of opportunities for research collaboration with world-leading universities and renowned institutes. And with all courses grounded in a strong research culture where innovation and critical enquiry are key features, NTU students are immersed in the best of learning environments.
To further cultivate research culture and nurture research capabilities early in undergraduates’ university education, the Undergraduate Research Experience on Campus (URECA) allows undergraduates to have the flexibility to work on research projects of their choice from any discipline in NTU. More than 800 research projects ranging from engineering, medicine to social sciences and humanities.
