Embrace the Era of Blockchain (TGS-2020502270)

Course Overview

What began as the basis of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, blockchain technology-essentially a virtual ledger capable of recording and verifying a high volume of digital transactions-is now spreading across a wave of industries. According to the Singapore Blockchain Ecosystem Report 2020, blockchain emerged as one of the top three technology trends in Singapore for 2021, and Singapore’s blockchain landscape map has grown more than 50% from 2019, with 91 more companies represented now versus last year. As Dr Ong Chen Hui, cluster director (technology development) at IMDA said, there are “exciting opportunities for blockchain in the country”.

The Blockchain Innovation Strategy programme, jointly developed by the College of Engineering (CoE) and Nanyang Technopreneurship Center (NTC) is a practical, hands-on intensive executive programme designed to equip entrepreneurs and professionals in Singapore with the fundamentals of Blockchain. It aims to prepare companies to boost awareness of the technology to develop pioneering solutions using blockchain beyond financial applications.
