NTU Singapore has achieved its best performance in the US News & World Report’s global university rankings this year, climbing 5 spots to 38th place internationally, and having 8 subjects ranked among the global top 10 and first in Singapore.
To boost the competitiveness of Singapore's flourishing manufacturing sector, a new industry-led training programme office will plan ways to ensure the workforce has emerging skills and knowledge. The Advanced Manufacturing Training Academy (AMTA) supported by A*STAR and NTU, will be located at the Jurong Innovation District (JID) manufacturing hub.
A group of six researchers at NTU has invented new hardware that will significantly reduce costs for electronics used in satellites and improve protection for them in space. Known as the Latchup Detection and Protection (LDAP) chip, it was launched by Zero-Error Systems (ZES), a Singapore start-up that was incubated at NTU.
The system has AI-enabled sensor nodes to process and respond to 'pain' arising from pressure exerted by a physical force. The system also allows the robot to detect and repair its own damage when minorly 'injured', without the need for human intervention.
Scientists from NTU Singapore have modelled the cradle-to-grave environmental impact of using different types of shopping bags and report that in cities like Singapore, single-use plastic bags (made from high-density polyethylene plastic) have a lower environmental footprint than single-use paper and multi-use cotton bags.
Magorium – a Singaporean start-up seeking to disrupt the construction industry with an innovative plastic waste recycling solution – emerged as the champion of ideasinc 2020, the nationwide start-up challenge helmed by NTUitive, the innovation and enterprise company of NTU.
NTU held a panel discussion on the role of AI in a post-pandemic world during the Deep Learning Week, which is organised annually by the Machine Learning and Data Analytics Lab at the NTU School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE).
Diamond could conduct electricity like metals when it is deformed to strains at the nanoscale, according to predictions from a study by an international team of scientists from NTU Singapore, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA, and the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, Russia.
Cancer cells are killed in lab experiments and tumour growth reduced in mice, using a new approach that turns a nanoparticle into a 'Trojan horse' that causes cancer cells to self-destruct.
NTU Singapore has made it into the QS Global Master of Business Administration (MBA) Rankings top 30 list this year.
