In line with the government’s emphasis on advancing adult education and professional development for Singapore’s workforce to better meet future challenges, NTU established the College of Professional and Continuing Education (PaCE College) to consolidate continuing education and training capabilities and expertise within the university. Professor Ting Seng Kiong is the Founding Dean of PaCE College.
PaCE College will develop programmes for continuing professional education and development, to equip Singapore professionals, managers and executives (PMEs) with updated knowledge and skills to keep pace with the rapid technological changes in today’s increasingly competitive economy and industrial landscape.
PaCE College will subsume NTU’s Office of Professional Education and Centre for Continuing Education, and draw upon NTU’s world-renowned faculty and strong industrial connections to support working adults to update, upgrade and upskill in their journey to attain their professional goals and personal educational aspirations.
Besides the credit-bearing courses drawn from various undergraduate and graduate academic programmes across a wide spectrum of disciplines, PaCE College will also offer executive, personal development and enrichment non-credit courses. The new College will thus offer multiple educational pathways to professional, intellectual, and creative development through its continuing education programmes.
