Program graduates are prepared to become world leaders of innovation who can contribute to cultural, political, economic, and health concerns in their home countries and around the world.
The most prominent feature of the Georgia Tech-Singapore collaboration is the establishment of a joint research initiative called the Centre for Next Generation Logistics (C4NGL) in 2015.
C4NGL is a collaboration between Georgia Institute of Technology (GT) and the National University of Singapore (NUS) that offers research expertise in simulation, modelling, and optimization in logistics and supply chain management systems. C4NGL's role is to deliver cutting-edge systems design, research and developmental capabilities in general business, particularly in logistics and supply chain management or engineering related industries, for Singapore and Asia.
Georgia Tech has been working with various educational institutions and corporations in the MENA region for more than a decade. The unique challenges within the region provides a space for technological and educational innovations by researchers, students, and faculty.
These efforts have resulted in a number of programs and partnerships that are mutually beneficial and fits well within Georgia Tech’s 25-year strategic vision, especially the global impact and footprint of the Institute. Some of these programs are students and faculty centric while others are research and entrepreneurship centric.
Furthermore, Georgia Tech delivered degree programs to certain cohorts of students in MENA. So far, these programs have had a positive impact on our campus, students, and faculty in Atlanta as well as hundreds of students and multiple organizations in MENA. We are anticipating an exponential growth of these programs and partnerships and we look forward to the next decade making an impact in such a strategic region.
