Appointed the Founding Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Mr Philip Ng

Our Story, Our People

“When MOE had this project in mind, they wanted to constitute a board of trustees. That is the model of institutes of higher learning today — although the institutes are state-funded, they are led by a Board of Trustees consisting of people from the private sector. MOE asked me to be the Chairman partly because I had already been involved in a few things, and also because I was an engineer. I graduated as an engineer and I did a Masters in Technology and Policy at MIT. MOE thought that I would understand engineering education, so they asked me to chair the first Steering Committee.” Mr. Philip Ng
