Nanyang Polytechnic International (NYPi)

NYP International (NYPi) is the international arm of Nanyang Polytechnic. NYPi seeks to actively enhance the global presence of Nanyang Polytechnic.  We strengthen our existing international partnerships and collaborations to create more opportunities for the students and staff of NYP.

As a platform to share the NYP Teaching Factory concept and its related concepts, its capabilities, as well as its training and education services with institutions in the region, NYPi's mission, is to develop NYP into a Global Polytechnic of distinction.  This is in line with the vision set forth by the honourable Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam, then Singapore's Minister for Education, in his speech delivered at the dinner on 30 March 2007 to celebrate NYP's 15th Anniversary:

".... I hope to see NYP developing into a Global Polytechnic as it grows from strength to strength!"

At NYPi, we conduct training for technical and vocational educators from foreign countries.  Through our training programmes, participants learn more about the well established pedagogic and management concepts of NYP, in particular, the NYP Teaching Factory concept, which integrates academic studies with industry projects within the polytechnic. Industry projects are an integral part of the teaching and learning environment which provide students with real-life working experience and serves as a platform for developing staff capabilities.

NYPi has the privilege of being partners with various organizations to deliver quality training programmes.  Some of these esteemed partners are GIZ (German Agency for Technical Cooperation), International Enterprise (IE) Singapore, Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Singapore Cooperation Enterprise, Temasek Foundation and the World Bank.
