  • Director's Message

    Welcome to NYP’s School of Information Technology!

    Information technology is becoming increasingly essential in our data-filled world, and you may be curious about how it plays a part in our daily lives. We’re here to transform your curiosity into relevant skillsets.

    Here at the School of Information Technology, you can choose from five full-time IT diploma courses, alongside a common ICT programme and various lifelong learning options. Our lecturers, who come from diverse backgrounds, bring with them a wealth of industry knowledge and experience. Our strong linkages with the industry also ensure that our training is up-to-date and relevant.

    Starting from April 2021, learners enrolled in our Diploma in Business Intelligence & Analytics will experience a whole new teaching model – the NYP Professional Competency Model (NYP-PCM). The first of its kind in Singapore, this teaching model was co-created with IT industry leaders and fundamentally reimagines poly education. Under the PCM, learners can also expect to graduate with additional industry certifications to kickstart their careers.

  • Innovative Teaching and Learning

    We constantly review our curriculum and find innovative ways to approach Teaching and Learning.

    • Mobile learning (convenience and easy access, for just-in-time learning and bite-size learning)
    • Differentiated learning (to maximize learning by catering to different students’ profiles, interests, abilities and learning styles)
    • Active learning (for engagement and effective learning through participation and reflection)        

    You will get real-world experience through attachments to companies and NYP’s Centre for IT Innovation in your final year of study. Through this programme, you have the chance to work on real life projects and gain exposure to the demands of the industry. This also allows you to interact with people from different disciplines and learn how IT is used in various ways to create innovative solutions to overcome real-world problems.

  • Working with Industry Experts

    Nothing beats hands-on experience. At NYP’s Centre for IT Innovation, we use a contextual teaching and learning approach. You will work full-time on projects, taking theoretical concepts and turning them into real-world solutions. This will give you the invaluable industry experience you’ll need to thrive in the IT industry.
  • Industry Projects

    To give you plenty of opportunities to work on industry projects, we have linked up with key industry partners in the emerging areas of big data analytics, cybersecurity, cloud computing, next-generation network technologies, wireless and mobile computing, the Internet of Things and fintech. They include Accenture, the Centre for Strategic Infocomm Technologies, Cisco Systems, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Red Hat, SAP, SAS, the Singapore Land Authority, Splunk, ST Electronics, StarHub and many more.
