The GDipSA programme is best suited for non-IT graduates intending to craft a new career path in the IT industry. IT graduates who wish to advance their careers in their current field and recognise the need to equip themselves with the latest IT knowledge and skills to stay relevant may apply as well.
Having graduated 46 batches of students, this programme is going into its 49th intake. Many of our graduates are now prominent senior IT professionals, who have benefited from this programme.
Students who embark on this hands-on programme will be exposed to lectures, workshops, laboratory sessions, projects and a 5-month internship. We have designed numerous projects into the programme. The aim is to equip them with the necessary foundation to code, test, implement and troubleshoot IT solutions covering web and mobile platforms.
By the end of the programme, you will be equipped with sought-after technical skills and valuable soft skills.
