NTU ramps up collaboration with Israel's top university
Date:6/21/2010

Singapore's leading science and technology university, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), and Israel's number one university, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology (Technion), today announced a new collaboration to jointly offer a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme.

The NTU-Technion Joint PhD degree programme is a university-wide agreement and is expected to commence with Materials Science and Bioengineering. Significantly, the joint PhD degree will also start with projects related to the Technion research programme** funded by Singapore's National Research Foundation (NRF), which aims to address the clinical need for cardiac restoration therapy using a tissue-engineering based approach. The new PhD joint programme is therefore timely and will play an important role in furthering Singapore's quest to be a world leader in the field of cardiac restoration therapy.

One of the world's top science and technology research universities, Technion is famed for producing the majority of leaders in Israel's high-tech companies. Known as "Israel's MIT," Technion has earned a worldwide reputation for its pioneering work in areas such as medicine, water management, nanotechnology, biotechnology, materials engineering and aerospace.

The Implementation Agreement for the NTU-Technion Joint PhD degree programme was signed today by Technion President Professor Peretz Lavie and NTU President Dr Su Guaning, at the Technion campus in Technion City, Haifa, Israel.

"This agreement marks a new chapter in the history of cooperation between our institutions, a further attestation of our shared commitment to delivering the best education and training for our graduate students and faculty," says Dr Su Guaning. "The agreement will increase contact and mutual support between students and researchers of Technion and NTU, as well as strengthen graduate education opportunities at the two universities.
