Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has officially launched the School of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (CCEB) – a new academic unit that aims to become the pioneering model for excellence in interdisciplinary education and research.

Jointly set up by the Colleges of Engineering and Science, the interdisciplinary school is a first-of-its-kind academic unit to be established between any two Colleges within NTU and aims to be a model for interdisciplinary learning for other NTU schools and academic institutions in the region.

Together with existing matriculated students from the Division of Chemistry and Biological Chemistry, and those from the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering (SCBE), the total student strength of the new school is more than 2,000.

Created as part of the NTU 2025 strategic plan to better equip students for the interdisciplinary challenges of tomorrow, the School of CCEB will serve as a platform to foster stronger interdisciplinary synergies across academic units in education, research, and innovation, while also ensuring depth and rigour in the coverage of topics within the disciplines.
