Universities in Singapore

Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Today’s universities are on the forefront of technological advancement, and greater access to technology can result in a more valuable college experience. Whether a university is creating the next wave of technology in its laboratories and research centers, or using it everyday in its classrooms, university campuses are proving themselves to be some of the most technologically advanced places in the world. As part of our quest to find schools that will offer students the greatest educational value, we were naturally curious to know which are the techiest of these high-tech schools. To find them, we consulted university websites, reviewed national surveys from college students about their schools, searched various databases on subjects like computer science, biometrics and social media, and looked over winners of prestigious national awards such as the Innovators Awards. While we realize the system is not perfect, we needed a useful way of helping readers compare features among these various high-tech universities. The point system we developed is explained below.

2 points — Major (national or international) award for technology or innovation
1 point — Regional or local award for technology or innovation

Additional Criteria
1 point — Per declared 10,000 square feet of subject-specific laboratory or research center
1 point — Facilities or research departments allowing research opportunity to undergraduate students
1 point — Nobel laureates on campus or listed amongst the alumni
1 point — The offering of tech features beyond traditional universities, whether in the classrooms, residence halls, or department.

After reviewing several hundred candidates, we believe these fifty universities are tops. They are ordered based upon points awarded, from least to greatest. In the event of a tie, the editors used their discretion.

Vocational Education and Training

Singapore's low youth unemployment due to vocational education

Published on Jul 26, 2013

Singapore's youth unemployment is 6.7%, that's just half of global youth unemployment, which is over 12 per cent This is possible because of our technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions, which have kept up with the times, said Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean at the first TVET conference 2012 hosted here.

Vocational Education

Ministry of Education has facilitated the development of quality vocational education programmes in SPED schools serving students with Mild Intellectual Disability. From 2010, Metta and Delta Senior Schools offered vocational education to eligible students from the age of 16 years, leading to national certification in selected industry areas. Students who successfully complete the vocational education programme in Metta School will receive the ITE Skills Certificate (ISC) awarded by ITE while those in Delta Senior School receive the Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ). New pathways are open to students as a result of the vocational prototyping. Students who successfully attain the ISC or WSQ may apply for jobs in the open market or attend further advanced training e.g. at ITEs to pursue the National ITE Certificate (NITEC) as long as they meet the pre-requisites for the courses. Alternatively, students may seek further vocational training at external vocational training centres operated by NCSS or other vendors.

A framework for vocational education in SPED schools was released to all SPED schools at the end of 2010. This framework for Vocational Education in SPED Schools spells out the vision and philosophy, principles, processes, and learning outcomes of vocational education for students with special needs. Included in the framework are a series of guides to help schools operationalise a structured programme of vocational education that would effectively prepare their students to be employable, and to lead independent lives.

Global HR Forum 2013

Published on Nov 17, 2014

European Bureau of Statistics announced the unemployment rate, 5.5%, and the youth unemployment  rate, 7.7% in Germany (2013). The youth unemployment rate of Switzerland is even lower 6.0%. The figures are significantly lower compared with 7.6% and 16.2% in the U.S. last month, and 12.0% and 24% of the entire eurozone. The vocational education and training systems of Germany and Switzerland are the keys to maintain solid growth and a low unemployment rate of the German economy. The apprenticeship systems of the countries are well organized to develop skills with balanced combination of theoretical education and workplace-oriented practice. According to the estimates of the Cologne Institute of Management, Germany's vocational education system dropped the youth unemployment rate by an average of 5 percentage points. The vocational education and training systems of Germany and Switzerland are managed to provide the best talent to meet the demands of enterprises on the basis of theory and field experience accumulated. The most strong point of the system is that corporate can have fully-fledged skilled technicians.

Furthermore, not only skills but also the loyalty to the employers is very high. In addition, the preferential climate for technicians and the socio-economic status for technical masters are as good as the highly educated. In this session, as a way to solve youth unemployment, we want to discuss the characteristics and strengths of vocational education and training in Germany and Switzerland, the current status of Singapore which introduced German’s system, and the implications.
