The Nanyang Technological University has entered into a partnership with the University of California to explore activities to further the exchange of faculty and students.
The two institutions will also embark on joint research efforts in the areas of climate change, health, technology and innovation.
Professor Subra Suresh, president of NTU, said both universities are globally recognised for research, education, innovation and commitment to societal impact.
University of California president Janet Napolitano and her delegation were recently in Singapore on a two-day visit, during which she gave a lecture and participated in a dialogue attended by about 300 students, faculty and members of the public.
NTU said the memorandum of understanding builds on the university’s existing academic and research collaborations with University of California campuses. About 180 of its students participate in academic exchanges in the United States annually.
