About Ngee Ann Polytechnic
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.
There are 48 full-time
and nine academic schools.
Ngee Ann also supports Continuing Education and Training (CET) through its
which offers a wide range of part-time programmes.
The Learning Experience With That Something Xtra!
As part of the Ngee Ann Learning Model to provide a broad-based education, the polytechnic offers diverse interdisciplinary modules through its School of Interdisciplinary Studies.
Signature Pedagogies in the Professions
Through our Signature Pedagogies in the Professions, we aim to nurture graduates who are work-ready through teaching practices that mirror that of the professions they are being trained for. In other words, it is about nurturing students to think, do and act in the same manner as experts in the field.
Another hallmark of the Ngee Ann education is overseas exposure which gives students the chance to see the world, broaden their horizons as well as experience foreign cultures and ways of conducting business. Every student is therefore given the opportunity to go abroad at least once through a variety of learning platforms such as internships, immersion programmes, study visits, community service and competitions.
Learning takes place amid a caring and conducive environment with top-notch facilities ranging from broadcast, multimedia and animation studios to research laboratories as well as simulation and technology centres.
Ngee Ann also maintains close partnerships with industry playe
rs 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 & Wa ter 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.
Holistic Student Development
All students are also given the opportunity to further develop themselves through Ngee Ann's very own Youth Academy which helps them discover more about themselves, broaden their horizons and gain insights into the real world.
The Youth Academy offers various programmes for personal and character development such as leadership and portfolio development workshops and empowerment camps.
Ngee Ann also offers The Christieara Programme (TCP), a comprehensive talent development programme which stretches the potential of students and enhance their career preparation and academic progression beyond the polytechnic.
Beyond equipping our students with knowledge and competencies, the polytechnic also places an emphasis on instilling Ngee Ann’s core values of respect, responsibility, resilience, integrity, compassion and gratitude or in short, R3ICG. This is accomplished through multiple pathways which shape their character and inspire them to contribute to society.
To enable a more robust values-driven education, Service-Learning has been introduced as the polytechnic's signature pedagogy. Starting with the Academic Year 2016 intake, students take at least one Service-Learning module where they apply the skills and knowledge from their course to co-create solutions within the community. This aims to instill a sense of purposeful learning and active citizenry in students.
