Nanyang Polytechnic was established on 1st April
1992 and it’s first batch of pioneer students was enrolled in July 1992 for its
School of Health Sciences and School of Business Management. Two further
departments were set up at a later stage, the School of Engineering and the
School of Information Technology. The French-Singapore, German-Singapore and
the Japan-Singapore institutes were transferred from the Economic Development
Board to the Polytechnic in February in 1993. At this stage, the Polytechnic operated
at five campuses namely Bukit Merah, Jurong, Outram, Tiong Bahru and Yishun
before moving to our new and permanent home at Ang Mo Kio in April 1998.

capacity of 12,000 students and 1,400 staff members. The polytechnic has 14
administration blocks, three blocks for recreational and student development
