Established in April 1990, Temasek Polytechnic (TP) is a significant contributor to the field of para-professional education in Singapore. Situated in the east of the island, the campus sits on a 30-hectare plot of land fronting the scenic Bedok Reservoir.
TP currently offers 52 full-time diploma courses in the areas of applied sciences, business, design, engineering, humanities & social sciences, and informatics & IT to around 15,000 students. We also offer over 40 part-time courses, up to the Advanced Diploma level. Both local and overseas universities have accorded the TP Diploma advanced standing towards degree studies.
Our students undergo a learning system that is holistic, equipping them with life skills and relevant knowledge that can keep them in good stead as they join the workforce. Since 1997, TP has been a champion of the Problem-based Learning approach which promotes independent study, self-reflection and creative thinking - qualities that will give our graduates a distinct advantage over others in an ever-changing economic landscape.
For our commitment to world-class education, we have received the People Developer Standard, the Singapore Quality Class, ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 certifications, the Public Service Excellence Award and the Singapore Family Friendly Employer Award.
