Poly Grads urged to start own Businesses

Minister of State for Education Lawrence Wong urged polytechnic graduates interested in starting their own businesses to follow in 21-year-old Mr Nick Thng's (Nee Ann Polytechnic accountancy student) footsteps and pursue their dreams. He also gave example of another Ngee Ann graduate, Mr Darran Nathan, who turned down a bond-free scholarship to attend university in 2000 in order to commercialise the computing technology he first developed at school.

NP Biomedical Engineering Diploma Course is now accredited with National University of Singapore (NUS) Life Sciences course! Our graduates from BME Dip course get to enjoy advanced standing for NUS Life Sciences course, similar to their peers from NP Biomedical Science Dip course!

For more information on our Diploma course's accreditation standing with NUS, please check


Our graduates since 2004 are all academically inclined and about 30~35% of them (depending on which year) are now in universities. Between 35~48% are in National Service, with many of them already holding placements in the local universities. In 2007, we had a record number of 65% of our graduate having placements in the university within the first year of graduation.

The Biomedical Engineering Diploma is recognised by many universities. The BME Diploma holder therefore gains advanced standing in tertiary institutions, saving up to 2 years of studies, depending on the course and the university.
