Tembusu College’s motto The Home of Possibilities, means we value the development of each individual according to her or his own path through life. At the same time we are a learning community, which seeks to give students an intense experience in a nurturing environment. The college administers (and awards certificates for) the prestigious University Town College Programme (UTCP), which augments students’ regular degree programmes by emphasising breadth, critical thinking, and exposure to inter-disciplinary thinking. Our curriculum includes both seminars and out-of-classroom learning experiences.
The college is not themed. Diversity is an important part of our ethos, and we offer learning opportunities across a broad spectrum of interests. We do, however, have particular areas of strength, which are reflected in the backgrounds of our faculty.
A home away from home, the Tembusu College community is 21 storeys of collegiate spirit known for its friendly and welcoming culture.
Wake up or wind down through casual conversations with your Fellows and peers over meals at the Dining Hall. Sweat it out over sports at the Multi Purpose Hall. Huddle with like-minded individuals at one of the many Student-run Interest Groups & Student-Initiated Projects or start your own. Let loose or let your creativity flow in the well furnished Student Spaces. Be our Student Partners and contribute to the College community.
Need career advice? Stressed? Need help on personal issues? Or simply want catch up with friendly members of our Residential Team? We're here for you.
Tembusu College is much more than a home; it's a Home of Possibilities.
Tembusu Alumni, Tan Ming Jiang & Youk Keunhee, win at SMRT & NUS Enterprise hackathon
September 08, 2014
From the 29th till the 31st of August, this year, Youk Keunhee and Tan Ming Jiang -- both alumni of Tembusu College -- alongside 2 other teammates participated in a hackathon organized by SMRT & NUS Enterprise. This being their first hackathon, they joined with the hope of learning more about hacking for solutions. As part of the contest, they were given problem statements by SMRT in five categories -- Buses, Trains, Taxis, Commercial and Open -- and had to solve any one of these over that weekend. Since the issue of taxis is very close to their hearts, their group decided to devote their energies to that problem.
Even though neither Keunhee nor Ming Jiang are coders, they pitched in not just in the technological aspects, but also in the marketing aspects. All of their work culminated in a 3 minute presentation of their prototype. The results of their work will soon be felt by us all, as the group will soon be working together with SMRT on implementing their idea.
