Our History
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.

Currently Nanyang Polytechnic occupies 30.5 hectares of land which is about the size of 60 football fields which is meant to house a capacity of 12,000 students and 1,400 staff members. The polytechnic has 14 administration blocks, three blocks for recreational and student development purposes and three blocks for staff accommodation.
