About ISS35

We are 35 this year! Let's celebrate ISS35, and define our future, together.

In 1981, the Institute of Systems Science (ISS) was established at NUS as Singapore’s first institute dedicated to the mission of building IT capabilities across the Nation. This year, we are celebrating 35 years of nurturing the IT and business leaders of Singapore and around the world, through our graduate education, executive development programmes, industry consultancy and applied research services.

Get involved!

We welcome ideas on how we can collaborate with the industry to define and create our future, together. Share your ideas with us at Get involved in one of the events below, and watch this space for more to come, as the year unfolds!

Signature Events

29 Feb to 20 Mar - ISS35 Logo and Tagline Competition
To mark the beginning of our year-long celebrations, we are asking for your creative ideas for a logo and/or tagline! We are looking for a design and phrase that reflects our aspiration to build tomorrow’s digital leaders, in line with our vision of making significant contributions to the Infocomm ecosystem in Singapore and beyond.

Competition Results

The winning logo came from Shaun Lau, a student from the Graduate Diploma in Systems Analysis programme, who felt that the logo commemorating our 35th anniversary should portray a futuristic and forward view of NUS-ISS, in line with our mission of developing future leaders in the field of ICT in Singapore for many years to come.

The winning tagline, 'Always Learning, Always Leading' was a joint submission by our very own staff, Esther, Suriya, Eng Lieh, Boon Kui, Daniel and Hans.

Well done, everyone, and thank you for your participation!!
