Founded in 1905, the National University of Singapore (NUS) began as a medical college with 23 students. Today, it is one of Asia’s leading universities, with over 38,000 students across three campuses – Kent Ridge, Bukit Timah and Outram. Offering a distinctively Asian yet global experience, its students are given the opportunity to excel not just academically, but also to grow socially. NUS is recognised for its breadth of academic programmes, experiential learning, entrepreneurship education and impactful research. As the university continues to grow from strength to strength, it is shown that they take pride in nurturing their students and equipping them with the necessary skills to be the leaders of tomorrow.

The Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities (LKYCIC) was established in September 2012 as one of the research centres of excellence in the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). The Centre seeks to stimulate thinking and research on the critical issues of cities and urbanisation and explores the integrated use of technology, design and policy to provide urban solutions.
LKYCIC’s research areas include:
- Resilience and Risk
- Mobility and Connectivity
- Social Capital
LKYCIC seeks partners in industry, business and government agencies for our research and education projects. The Centre intends to offer courses for graduate students as well as mid-level professionals, and provide opportunities for senior undergraduate students to be involved in research for urban innovation. It hosts talks, seminars and conferences that build a deeper understanding of cities, the role of cities, the future of cities, and the technology and design solutions for cities.
The Centre will work to bring cities together to understand, from the experiences of Singapore and other successful cities, the best practices and innovative solutions for improving existing cities and for building future cities.
