NTU is offering a new part-time SkillsFuture Work-Study Degree Programme in Computing for working professionals looking to pivot to the information and communication technology sector or deepen their skills in this area from August 2024.
This Work-Study Degree Programme is the first in Singapore to be offered on a part-time basis with a ‘stackable’ design, which allows students to study at their own pace with minimal disruption to their work commitments. Students are required to complete modules under all three ‘stacks’ – the Foundation, the Specialist, and the Industry Immersion – to graduate with a full Bachelor of Technology in Computing.
Along the way, students will be awarded Professional Certificates that recognise their newly acquired competencies upon completing each of the first two stacks. Students can use these certificates to advance their career or to pivot into a more relevant job role while completing the programme.
NTU Singapore’s School of Computer Science and Engineering co-developed the new programme with industry leaders in the ICT sector. Accenture, Singtel subsidiary NCS and ST Engineering are the first industry partners to come on board to help design and develop the programme.
