Year 2023 marks the School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE)’s 35th year of establishment. The school has come a long way since then and we are honoured to remain as one of the top schools for computer science and engineering; and highly sought after by talented youth in their pursuit of education and research.
To commemorate this milestone, the school has established a Term Professorship, the first of its kind for SCSE, and named it after Emeritus Professor Angela Goh, the former Chair of SCSE, a stalwart supporter for women in Computer Science and female leadership in NTU.
The Professor Angela Goh Career Development Professorship is established with the aim of recognising outstanding and talented female faculty at early or mid-stages of their career and fostering academic excellence among SCSE faculty.
This inaugural professorship was launched by NTU President, Professor Ho Teck Hua, Vice President (Innovation & Entrepreneurship) and Dean, College of Engineering, Professor Louis Phee, and Professor Miao Chunyan, Chair of SCSE at the school’s 35 th anniversary celebrations held at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel on 10 November 2023.

The awardee will hold the title of ‘Professor Angela Goh Career Development Professor in Computer Science and Engineering’. As part of the professorship, a discretionary research grant will be given to support the awardee’s annual Research Support Resources. The nomination is ongoing, and the appointment will be announced by the AG Professorship Search Committee once finalized.
Note: Prof Angela Goh conveyed her regret for not being able to attend the launch event. Through a video recording, Prof Goh addressed the audience and reminisced about the good times she had at SCSE. She wished the school much more success on the occasion of its 35th year anniversary.
