Nice place to work

I came with an idea and NTU was willing to take me and try out my dream project with me! However, there is little oversight on the pace of work, so there is little accountability. The names are misleading. The food technology center does not know anything about the food-science that goes into preparing food.

Nanyang Technological University is on the top niche universities in world with QS ranking of 13 among the young universities in world. It has a tropical climate with hardly any difference in the summer and winter temperature, with maximum day temperatuer at 34C and night temperatuer around 30C.

Best place to do research and innovate new things

I was worked in Nanyang Technological University for 1.5 years. My project is "Magnetocaloric refrigeration" I have full freedom in exploring new things and innovate. My fellow associates are more supportive they helped a lot in design and installing magnetocaloric refrigeration system. Overall best place to work and learn something new.


Best salary, fellow associates, guides
