New $30m NTU career development centre

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) on Tuesday announced a new $30 million career development centre to boost the competitiveness of its graduates.

The centre will offer a structured curriculum of essential career skills and values. Engineering students will kick-start the programme next August by taking 10 mandatory modules on career development, including resume-writing and networking, during their four years of undergraduate studies.

It is named Margaret Lien Centre for Professional Success after the philanthropist who donated $12 million to the fund.

The Government will match Mrs Lien's donation, bringing the total building fund to $30 million.

Mrs Lien is the wife of the late Mr Lien Ying Chow, who was a strong supporter of NTU.
