Established as an institution of higher learning in 1992, Nanyang Polytechnic’s (NYP) seven academic schools offer quality education and training through more than 40 full-time diploma courses. NYP also has a full suite of continuing education (CET) options for lifelong learning, ranging from specialist and advanced diplomas, to SkillsFuture modules and courses. NYP’s Asian Culinary Institute and the Singapore Institute of Retail Studies are CET institutes set up in partnership with SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) to champion and transform Singapore’s F&B and retail sectors respectively. A third NYP CET institute - the National Centre of Excellence for Workplace Learning – also set up in collaboration with SSG will spearhead the development of progressive workplace learning strategies and programmes for companies here.
Through its strong network of industry connections, NYP empowers learners for work and life through relevant curricula and deep capabilities. NYP strives to be the innovative polytechnic, creating a nexus of future-ready learners, ready to take on new challenges and contribute to growth and sustainability. Nanyang Polytechnic is a recipient of Singapore’s top organisational and business excellence awards: the Singapore Quality Award, the Innovation Excellence Award and the People Excellence Award. NYP received the first intake of students for the Diploma in Food & Beverage Business, a new course jointly developed by the School of Business Management and School of Chemical & Life Sciences in 2011. Learners pursuing this diploma get to specialise in Culinary Arts or Food & Beverage Management from second year, allowing them to hone their skills in specific areas within the dynamic F&B industry. Due to popular demand, the course has doubled its intake and will produce the seventh batch of graduates in 2020.
