The Imperial College Alumni Association of Singapore (ICAAS) was founded in 1977 and is the oldest international alumni group of Imperial College, London. Established as a non-profit organisation, ICAAS aims to build a network amongst Singapore-based graduates of Imperial College, which number almost 3,000 today.
Over the years, ICAAS has grown into a strong network of professionals, bonded by friendship forged since their college days in the United Kingdom. It plays an active role in promoting science, technology and innovation here in our local community, through the many events such as site visits and talks, as well as seminars organised with visiting academics from Imperial College.
ICAAS continues to work closely with our alma mater to promote Imperial College as an institution of choice for students with an interest to pursue degrees in science, engineering, medicine or business. ICAAS also collaborates with the Imperial College Singapore Society, providing support for activities organised for Singaporeans who are currently studying at the college.
