Dean of the Graduate School (GS), Professor Jiannong Cao, and some senior executives visited Singapore in mid-April to explore opportunities for research postgraduate education that would benefit the University and its students. A reunion with international research alumni was also arranged.
During their visit to the National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore Management University (SMU), A*Star (an agency for Science, Technology and Research) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore), a number of meetings were held to discuss possible partnerships in PhD education, including joint PhD supervision, student attachment opportunities, and research collaborations. The visit aimed to strengthen ties between top-tier institutions and foster collaboration in research postgraduate education.
We were impressed with the quality of research education and talent development in Singapore. We believe that there are significant opportunities for collaboration between our institutions.

We believe that there are significant opportunities for collaboration between our institutions," he remarked.
Research alumni from industries and academia were invited to gather at this prime opportunity. They mingled and shared career experiences. Together they also learnt about the latest developments at PolyU and GS as well as the global alumni community. As a successful conclusion, participants expressed appreciation and interest to join hands with GS to strengthen alumni connections.
University visits in Singapore by the GS delegation were part of the outreach trip led by Vice President (Research and Innovation) Professor Christopher Chao.
