NTU launches inaugural Nanyang Alumni Awards




Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has launched the inaugural Nanyang Alumni Awards in recognition and celebration of the outstanding achievements and contributions of our alumni.
The Guest-of-Honour, Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong, and NTU President Su Guaning will be presenting the awards and launching a heritage exhibition at the annual homecoming event, NTU Alumni Night, on 17 December 2005.
In commemoration of NTU¨s 50th anniversary, the awards will be presented to alumni who have either attained exemplary achievements in their field of specialisation either nationally, regionally or internationally, or have contributed significantly to the betterment of the University, the community or the society at large.
The inaugural recipients include illustrious alumni dating back to the Class of 1960, and who have contributed in wide-ranging areas such as business, science and technology, the arts and media, and sports. Many of their accomplishments have made waves internationally.
The recipients of the four categories of awards are as follows:
Nanyang Distinguished Alumni Award

Dr Tan Swie Hian

More details of the recipients are provided in the fact sheet.
About 1,300 alumni from all over the world are expected to attend the homecoming event and a unique medley of performances has been choreographed by alumni, students and staff for the night.
Alumni can also look forward to reliving their fond memories on campus as special arrangements have been made for them to visit their favourite haunts, such as Yunnan Garden, the former Nanyang University Administration Building, and the halls of residence.
Each Nanyang Awards recipient will receive a specially commissioned Trophy and a Certificate of Commendation.
The Trophies were designed by Professor Isaac Kerlow, Dean of NTU¨s new School of Art, Design and Media. The design incorporates the elements of nature and embodies an admiration for and appreciation of ancient Chinese art, particularly, bronze artefacts and classic jade. Although shaped like a jade tablet (合), it is also reminiscent of the obelisk, a monumental sculptural form commonly used in the West to commemorate important events.
