I chose SP because of the exposure it can give me. In year 2, I attended the Apple's worldwide developers’ conference in 2012 and compete with 150 students from all over the world. I wish to thank the superheroes of SP, who are the lecturers who saw the potential in us and made us shine.

Our Graduate Story


Chang Xiaoran Senior Consultant
IBM Singapore
Laying The Foundation

Xiaoran graduated from SP with a Diploma in Information Technology (Distinction) in 2009. As with most DIT graduates, Xiaoran was looking to clock some industry experience under his belt. He immediately secured employment as a Systems Developer with AON Consulting, a US-based multinational company, right after his graduation from Polytechnic. At AON, he developed and supported in-house software systems that enabled stakeholders to streamline and facilitate their core business processes.


The Progression

After working for more than a year, the Global IT department at AON was dissolved due to accquisition and internal restructure, Xiao Ran was forced to seek employment elsewhere. With the DIT training and working experience, he quickly secured a Consultant position at the multinational technology and consulting company, IBM.


Understanding that he has to develop his skills further to excel in his industry, Xiaoran took up a part-time IT degree programme at Singapore Institute of Management (SIM).


Success Today

After graduating with a Bachelor in Information Technology (Computing) with Distinction in 2012, Xiaoran's hard work and newly acquired knowledge was recognised at IBM, in which he was promoted to a Senior Consultant shortly in 2013.

Today, Xiaoran is embarking on a new career journey with Google Asia Pacific as a Partner Technology Manager.
