NTU College of Engineering (CoE) aspires to be a great global engineering college and we constantly forge close linkages with many overseas universities.
We are an active member in two notable academic alliances in the Asia Pacific region:
Initiated by former Japanese Prime Ministers H.E. Mr. Hashimoto and Mr. Obuchi at the Japan-ASEAN Summit Meeting in 1997 and at the ASEAN-Plus-Three Summit Meeting in 1999, AUN/SEED-Net was established in April 2001 which aimed at promoting human resources development in engineering in ASEAN. AUN/SEED-Net is mainly supported by the Japanese Government through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), and partially supported by the ASEAN Foundation.
The network members consist of 19 universities from South-East Asia and 11 Japanese universities.
The Asia-Oceania Top University League on Engineering (AOTULE) is an Asian-Oceanian regional league consisting of engineering faculties, staff and students from eleven premiere engineering and technological universities.
The AOTULE promotes inter-university cooperation through joint programmes including holding an annual Dean's meeting, staff meeting, multi-disciplinary student conference, and organises short-term student exchanges in order to improve the quality of engineering education, promote interactions and research of its members. In addition, it aims to broaden participating faculty, staff and students' perspectives through best practice sharing, research collaborations, and cross-cultural activities.
