WHAT THE COURSE IS ABOUT

If you enjoy creating innovative IT solutions for people and businesses or aspire to start your very own e-business, the Diploma in Information Technology (IT) may just be the course for you. You will acquire strong IT knowledge and skills to develop robust application systems for a wide variety of businesses and industries.

Core modules in your first year will focus on developing your understanding in computing, programming, user interface design and enterprise information systems. You can then build upon this solid foundation and choose one of our seven specialisations in your second year.

In your final year, you will go on a four-month local or overseas internship. You can also work on an IT-related project with organisations such as KPMG, IBM, SingTel and MIT, or you can create your IT business and ideas at our technology hubs.
