Nanyang Technological University launches first-ever sports degree in Singapore
Date:2/10/2009

NTU has launched a new Bachelor of Science in Sport Science and Management degree programme. The first of its kind in Singapore, the four-year, direct honours programme aims to produce professionals with relevant knowledge and pertinent skills for engagement in the sports industry.

The new degree is aimed at facilitating the growth of the sports and leisure industry in Singapore and the region. Signs of growth in the Asia Pacific sports market are evident. According to a global study by an independent management consulting firm, the total value of the market is expected to reach $17 billion by end of 2009.

National awareness and interest in sports is at an all-time high. Singapore organised the world's first-ever Grand Prix night race last year. It was also one of the 11 ports for the 2009 Volvo Ocean Race, touted to be the F1 for sailing. Singapore will be hosting the Asian Youth Games in 2009 and the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2010. Our local athletes have also given outstanding performances at the recent Olympics and Paralympics Games in Beijing.

Professor Er Meng Hwa, NTU's Senior Associate Provost, says, "The strong push to become a sporting nation signals a serious and concerted effort from the government to create a vibrant sports industry in Singapore. We're pleased to launch this degree to nurture professionals in Sport Science and Management at a time when there is unparalleled national interest in sports."

NTU has a tradition in promoting sports. National fencers Tay Yu Ling from the College of Science and Eddie Sng from Nanyang Business School (Accountancy), are third-year undergraduates at NTU. In 1983, NTU was the South-East Asian Games Village. In 2006, NTU signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Singapore Sports School and Republic Polytechnic to provide pathways for sports practitioners and talented athletes to pursue a university degree in Singapore while still competing internationally.
