PSB Academy aims to be hotbed for STEM talent with new multi-million-dollar campus

The new campus at Jackson Square in Toa Payoh upgraded laboratories built for their various faculties.

PSB Academy (PSB), one of Singapore’s leading private education institutions, celebrated the inauguration of its STEM Campus in early May. The campus was officially launched by Assistant Secretary-General for the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), Patrick Tay, with long-time institutional partners from the Labour Movement and universities from the UK and Australia in attendance, together with industry representatives like VX Sports, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, Pearson Education and more.

The new campus at Jackson Square in Toa Payoh, is a multi-million-dollar facility that will house PSB’s School of Engineering and Technology, and School of Life and Physical Sciences.

At the event, PSB CEO Derrick Chang underscored the importance and strength of tripartite collaboration as key to the Academy’s success in the future. “Prime Minister Lee determined tripartism as a crucial ingredient to Singapore’s long-term success. Our strong partnership with the likes of SISEU and self-help groups provides us a channel to enable equal and accessible quality higher education opportunities across life stages, that gives us the platform to build on our success as The Future Academy. These collective efforts ensure that we not only equip students to contribute to a strong, successful Singapore workforce, but also nurture resilient advocates for lifelong and continual learning,” says Derrick.

PSB will continue its focus on developing skills-based diploma and degree programmes focused on transferrable skills, designed for both school-leavers and workers looking to upgrade themselves. In partnership with universities from the UK and Australia, as well as collaborations with colleges in Indonesia, Myanmar, Vietnam and China, PSB is also looking to build on its transnational network, to offer its students opportunities to gain exposure to other countries. “Even as we train students for the new economy, we want them to appreciate the nuances of culture and understanding of new ways of doing business, to create resilient global citizens,” says Dr Sam Choon-Yin, Dean, PSB Academy.
