You can be an entrepreneur, artist, scientist, designer, business executive...the sky’s the limit.

The best problem solvers are creative thinkers.

Why Join Us?

NUS Computing provides a safe space to learn, grow, and explore. I really appreciate the spirit of innovation and collaboration that NUS Computing nurtures.

My time here has trained my resilience and has constantly pushed me beyond my comfort zone. At the same time, it has made me more daring to try new things and take on challenging tasks.
