Our Curriculum

Our programmes are crafted to provide a transformative education to our students, as well as equip them with the capabilities to address the needs of a dynamic global and local information and communications (infocomm) industry.

These programmes are designed with five underlying principles:

  • To provide substantive intellectual content to equip graduates with the necessary knowledge and skill-sets to function in work environments that are increasingly globalized;
  • To prepare students to have questioning minds through innovative pedagogical learning experiences;
  • To expose students to the global environment to help them to become better global citizens, who are sensitive to diverse cultural settings, aware of the potential they offer, and capable of operating in them, while conscious of the particularity, value, and limits of their own perspectives;
  • To provide opportunities for students to better prepare themselves for better communication skills;
  • To be aligned and relevant to the changing industries’ needs for infocomm professionals.

Detailed curricula for our two primary programmes are available at our IS Programme and EC Programme pages.
