Innovative Teaching & Learning

The School of Information Technology constantly reviews and find innovative ways to approach Teaching and Learning. The school had created a common framework for project work based on the Stanford D’School’s Design Thinking approach. Through this framework, IT students are able to resolve real-world problems with a favour of creativity. It empowers the students to experience reflective learning for better learning outcomes.

 

Students in the School of Information Technology are equipped with industrial strength knowledge through their attachment to companies and NYP’s Centre for IT Innovation in their final year of study.  Through this programme, they have the chance to work on real life projects and expose themselves to the demands of the industry.  This also provides a platform for them to interact with people from different disciplines and learn how IT is used in various perspectives to create innovation and overcome real world problems.

 

IT students are constantly challenged to benchmark their skills with the industry. Our IT++ programmes are designed to empower students with the relevant professional skills upon graduation PLUS give them an edge over their peers during their further studies.

On top of the diploma, students may look forward to graduating with

  • a PLUS in additional qualification such as Diploma Plus certificates & professional certificates offered by Cisco, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Red Hat and SAP
  • a PLUS in leadership, presentation & communication, time management, innovative mindset and other life skills as we groom you to be all-rounders

 

A global mindset is needed to keep in step with rapid technological changes and stay ahead. Through our overseas attachment programme, students have the opportunity to study or work outside Singapore and experience first-hand the culture and business and industry practices of other countries. Recent attachments include working stints in USA, China and India. Through these experiences, students will gain a better appreciation of and a wider interest in a variety of subject areas beyond their course of study for a balanced education and holistic development.
