Good work! You have done us proud!
Teh Qin Chuan and Tan Jing Wei, Diploma in Infocomm Security Management (DISM) graduates, How Jing Lin, Diploma in Information Technology (DIT) graduate, and Timothy Thong Qian Mu, Diploma in Information Communication (DICT) Technology graduate, recently received their National Infocomm Scholarship (NIS) from IDA. The NIS was launched in 2004 to develop leaders for the infocomm industry and to ensure a future pipeline of talent for it.
Qin Chuan and Jing Lin have chosen to remain in Singapore to pursue their studies with NUS’ prestigious computer science and information systems programmes respectively. On the other hand, Jing Wei and Timothy have decided that an overseas education would provide a different experience and widen their horizons. Timothy has yet to decide on his overseas university of choice while Jing Wei will read computer science at Royal Holloway, University of London, which specialises in infocomm security.
Jing Wei: "I am honoured and proud to have received this scholarship and I would like to credit this to my lecturers in DMIT for their commitment towards helping me achieve this prestigious award.'
Regardless of an overseas or a local university education, these scholars will have the unique opportunity to be nurtured by leading MNCs, local companies and government agencies during their course of study. After which they will be able to return their gratitude by serving at their sponsoring organisations, which is indirectly serving for the betterment of Singapore’s infocomm industry.
To the scholars, Director and staff of DMIT would like to congratulate them for a job well done and extend best wishes to their future endeavours.
