Welcome to Science at Nanyang Technological University.
Though Science is one of the youngest disciplines established at NTU, it has played a central role in NTU’s rise to international distinction as one of the top research intensive universities in the world.
In the College of Science, our more than 200 faculty members live and breathe excellence, in research and teaching. Our quests for fundamental understanding of nature lead to tools and ideas that power innovation. We strive to be impactful by addressing big problems of societal interest. For example, our biologists are working on cures for malaria; our physicists are working on novel materials for renewable energy; our earth scientists are working on environmental change to improve planning and management of human activities in hazardous environments; and our mathematicians are working on cryptography for defending against cyber attacks.
We are also deeply passionate about instilling curiosity and adventure in our students, as these are the foundational qualities needed to probe and discover nature. We believe that by asking questions and having a better understanding of our world, future generations will be able to make positive changes and create a better place for all.
We welcome you to explore the three schools of the College of Science — Asian School of the Environment, School of Biological Sciences, and School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences — and hope to inspire you to a lifelong fulfilment in science.
