rapid rise of NTU Singapore as one of the leading global research universities
has been propelled to a significant extent by the phenomenal growth in the
scale, scope, quality and impact of its graduate education and research.
Our graduate academic and
research programmes, a number of which are ranked among the best in the world,
currently include more than 9,000 students from dozens of countries. In order
to further strengthen our graduate education and research and to provide greater
opportunities and assistance to our students, faculty, staff and researchers,
NTU has established a new Graduate College.
I am very honoured to be
appointed the inaugural Dean of the Graduate College, and looking forward to
working closely with all of you to achieve the goal of making NTU graduate
programmes one of the very best in the world.
The Graduate College has been
tasked with the strategic mission of ensuring excellence of all graduate
programmes, to serve as the champion and chief advocate for graduation
education at NTU.
