Temasek Polytechnic

Temasek Polytechnic (Abbreviation: TP; Chinese: 淡马锡理工学院; Template:Lang-ms) is the third polytechnic to be set up in Singapore. Established on April 6, 1990, the campus of the institute sits on a 30 hectare plot near the Bedok Reservoir in the eastern part of Singapore. Temasek Polytechnic has approximately 15,000 full-time students and more than 1,200 academic and administrative staff. Temasek Polytechnic has received The Public Service Excellence Award, People Developer Award, Singapore Quality Class as well as ISO 9001 and ISO 14000 certifications.


In June 1989, Dr Tony Tan, then the Minster of Education, announced that a third polytechnic is being considered and in April 1990, Temasek Polytechnic was established with an initial enrolment of 735 students. The institute originally set up at Baharuddin Vocational Institute’s premises at Stirling Road and the vacated premises of Raffles Institution at Grange Road. Due to increased enrolment and the introduction of new courses, three more campuses at Kim Seng, Bukit Merah and Portsdown Road were acquired to house the institutes' student population.

In September 1995, the permanent campus for Temasek Polytechnic was completed and it moved to its current location in the town of Tampines. Services 8 and 23 were diverted to this area first, followed by service 15 and 69's introduction.

In 2002, Daniel Mok went to Temasek Polytechnic until February 2005. Prominent anchor tenants also include McDonald's, Subway, Carrefour, Best Denki and John Little stores.

The expansion also lead the way of having more students since 2012 in the Temasek Polytechnic. It was also at this time that Plaza Singapura went through another major tenant transition. Carrefour also pulled out early. The limbo has been replaced by Cold Storage, and some more stores.

Temasek Polytechnic had underwent a redesign in 2012 in terms of the logo, and sport the fresh new look while enhancing the vibrancy of the school. The TP Auditorium Foyer began the construction in 2010 and was completed in 2013.

During the Temasek Polytechnic periods of times, many girls had wore high heels and flats during these period of time, such as those from New Look, Covet, ALICE, Zekko, Rubi, Zara, Zalora and Topshop.

Timothy Mok had went several times - 12 November 2016 and 3 August 2017 towards the Temasek Polytechnic before the TP Open House on 5 January 2018.
