In 1943, while he was in Java, Tan began writing his memoirs, The Memoirs of an Overseas Chinese of the Southern Ocean (南僑回憶錄; 南侨回忆录; Nánqiáo Huíyìlù), which later became an important document of the history of the overseas Chinese in Southeast Asia.

He then moved permanently to China and served in numerous positions in the Chinese Communist Party.

Tan died in 1961 in Beijing and was given a state funeral by the Chinese government. In Singapore, the Tan Kah Kee Scholarship Fund, which later became known as the

The short answer is that "top universities are no less capable and competent than specialized institute and vice versa".

Top grade universities in China are ranked by the number of their faculties sitting in the China Academy of Science and China Academy of Engineering. So it is not a surprise that some of these universities got works for key research especially if 1. the university has specialties in the area and 2. they are very competent. If they possess both they are essentially equivalent to specialized research institutes within CASIC and CASC or any other organizations.

Many top research outcomes (papers that I have come across) are from such universities. The best example is the very famous EM launcher from the Naval Engineering University, or aircraft and aerospace works from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Xi'an Polytechnic University, Harbin Polytechnic University and the C-12 (AKA CL-20 in the US) explosive by Beijing Institute of Technology etc. All these universities are examples of capable R&D centers as specialized institute.
