Centre For IT Innovation in Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP), School of Information Technology, was established as a platform to provide an impetus towards several key objectives. These objectives focused on CITI as a launch pad for major industrial collaborations and cutting edge R & D projects.
CITI establishes itself as a multi-disciplinary hub that promotes vibrancy and cohesion by enabling students from the various IT diplomas, to work together on industrial and in-house projects. This platform promotes the concept of borderless integration within the entire Polytechnic. It also enables students with different skill-sets to interact and leverage on one another's strengths.
CITI also acts as an incubation zone for creative ideas to be generated and conceptualised. In the process of conceptualisation, cutting-edge technologies are being employed. Through this, CITI enables both staff and students to stay abreast of technological advances. As part of its capabilities development, CITI engages in applied R&D in core competencies such as Artificial Intelligence, Business and Fintech, Cloud Computing, Cyber Security, Data Analytics, Internet-of-Things, Infrastructure & Systems Administration and Software Development.
