NTU Singapore and Facebook to launch new certificate programmes to develop local data centre talent

NTU Singapore and Facebook, are collaborating to launch a pilot programme to develop local talent in the data centre sector in Singapore, a major data investment hub in the region.

The new nine-month pilot programme by the Centre for Professional and Continuing Education (PaCE@NTU) will offer four Specialist Certificates and one Graduate Certificate in the pilot phase, starting August 2020.

The four Specialist Certificate programmes are in design engineering, network engineering, site operations, and facility operations, while the Graduate Certificate programme is in international construction management. (Please see Annex A for details).

The courses - developed in conjunction with NTU College of Engineering - are aimed at training and upskilling local engineering talent to fill the increasing demand for specialists in the data centre industry. They will run alongside NTU undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum, both on campus and online. The pilot programme is open to the public and eligible for funding and mid-career enhanced subsidy provided by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG).
