NUS Engineering’s mission is to nurture Engineer-Leaders with a global perspective and to lead in technology through high-impact research. Celebrating its 60th Anniversary in 2015, the Faculty has contributed substantially to the rapid industrial and economic growth of the nation while continuing to contribute to a knowledge-based economy.
Professional engineering education started in 1955, with classes held at the Singapore campus of the University of Malaya. Two years later, a four-year diploma course was set up at the Singapore Polytechnic when the Department of Engineering moved to Kuala Lumpur. It became a four-year Bachelor of Engineering course in 1964.
