Visit to NUS Computing for Polytechnic Students

COM1 Level 2
The NUS School of Computing traces its roots back to the Nanyang University Department of Computer Science that was established in 1975 -- the first of its kind in Singapore. Since then, we have developed into one of the leading computing schools in the world with faculty members who are both internationally recognised researchers and inspiring teachers.
We offer outstanding undergraduate degree programmes in Computer Science, Information Systems, Computer Engineering, Information Security, and Business Analytics, as well as advanced Masters and PhD degree programmes that allow specialization in emerging areas of importance, including data analytics and security. Correspondingly, we attract excellent students and produce extremely talented graduates who are making their mark in the world.
The exceptional education students experience here, coupled with the reach and demand for computing talent in all fields and industries make NUS Computing graduates highly sought-after. We instill our students with leadership qualities and a spirit of entrepreneurship through mentorship, funding, and special programmes, including The Furnace, a start-up incubator which offers infrastructure and management support to bring original ideas to commercial fruition.
We are pleased to have been educating Singapore and the world's computing professionals for the past four decades and are proud to count many locally and internationally prominent leaders in the field among our large and accomplished family of alumni.
