Inaugurated in 1963 as Ngee Ann College with only 116 students, Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) has grown from its humble beginnings to establish itself as one of Singapore's leading institutions of higher learning. Today, the polytechnic has a full-time enrolment of more than 14,800 students.
Ngee Ann also maintains close partnerships with industry players and research partners to enrich the students' education through internships, collaborative projects and off-campus learning opportunities.
In addition, it has established two Centres of Innovation in Environmental & Water Technology and Marine & Offshore Technology which serve as one-stop centres to catalyse the growth of SMEs that tap on their technological capabilities to develop commercially viable solutions. At the same time, both Centres of Innovation provide a platform for Ngee Ann staff and students to work on cutting-edge projects and build on the Polytechnic's research and development expertise in niche areas.
