Guided by the Intelligent Nation 2015 and Singapore Media Fusion Plan initiatives, the Infocomm and Media (ICM) sector in Singapore has achieved strong economic growth, contributing about a tenth of the country’s GDP. In addition, ICM Masterplan 2025 aims to establish Singapore as a Smart Nation that leads the world in tapping the potential of ICM. To realise this quantum leap forward, a new Smart Nation Programme Office will spearhead the drive to create a “whole-of-government” approach by linking all government agencies, citizens and industries as parts of a Smart Nation.
The Diploma in Infocomm & Network Engineering is an inter-disciplinary programme that combines the study of engineering fundamentals, networking and information technologies. The blend of these disciplines will empower you to create innovative solutions for the ICM sector. In addition, our participation in various collaboration projects with the industry, such as the “Smart and Connected Jurong Lake District Pilots and Trials” and “Smart Enabled Home Programme”, will create numerous opportunities for you to hone your skills in developing innovative enterprise and mobile solutions using pervasive computing (Internet of Things and smart devices), cloud computing and data analytics, as well as in designing, planning and implementing network connectivity.
Our strong emphasis on a solid technical foundation will enable you to embark on careers in the IT, computer networking and communications industries immediately. So if you want to give yourself a bright future, while playing a part in Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative, then this is the course for you!
