Singapore Polytechnic was set up on 27 October 1954, making it the very first polytechnic to be established in Singapore.
Singapore Polytechnic started out right in the heart of the financial district. Today, the polytechnic is located strategically in Dover Road – in the educational belt and science hub in the western part of Singapore. Their graduates have contributed significantly to Singapore’s economic and industrial growth and many are now well-known entrepreneurs. Others hold positions of responsibility and leadership in industry, business and in public organisations.
Singapore Poly may be the oldest Polytechnic so they constantly refurbish the buildings and facilities to ensure that they are up to date and well equipped for training students in the new industries and emerging technologies.
