About Us


Welcome Message


Welcome to the School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE).


SCSE is proud to be known for our strength and international reputation as one of the top Computer Science and Computer Engineering departments globally. This success can largely be attributed to our unique balance of expertise in computer science and engineering which facilitates distinctive and rapid interdisciplinary research. 

In recent years, the school has prominently established herself in a few key areas of research.  SCSE has embarked on research in areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics, Cyber Security, Cloud Computing, Game Innovation, User Experience, Urban and Sustainability Informatics and Internet-of-Things. This is done with the goal of harnessing such technologies to improve our quality of life and strengthening our communities. As such, the school is well positioned to play a vital role in realising Singapore’s vision towards a Smart Nation.

We have received S$19m to work on data analytics research for solving complex engineering problems such as engine design at the Rolls-Royce@NTU Corporate Lab. A S$26m research centre with the University of British Columbia has also been established to focus on assistive technology for healthy ageing. Another major development was the formation of a S$31m NRF-funded centre to champion games technology, and related research and education. SCSE has also attracted S$6.7m research grant from the National Research Foundation for cyber security research. 

With its pool of dedicated, inspiring and world renowned faculty, SCSE has successfully produced graduates who have gone on to make an impact in society, both in Singapore and around the world. The school offers undergraduate training in two core programmes, namely Computer Science and Computer Engineering.  Our programmes combine a distinctive blend of theory and practice with critical hands-on experience, project-based learning, communication and professional skills enhanced through carefully selected professional internships. Students excel through innovative lessons and multidisciplinary projects that encourage creativity and practical innovation.  Based on Singapore Ministry of Education’s graduate employment survey, SCSE’s students are among the top earning graduates in NTU and 90% of our graduates are successfully employed before graduation in diverse industries with fast growth prospects.

Powered by state-of-the-art infrastructure and knowledge base, the school fosters a vibrant culture for undertaking cutting-edge research to innovate viable technologies and solutions for a wide variety of domains in computer science and engineering. SCSE’s alliances with eminent organisations and institutions, both local and international, allow us to provide a richer experience to our staff and students, thereby further strengthening our research and teaching forte.
