About National Software Competition (NSC) and National Infocomm Competition (NIC)

The National Software Competition (NSC) is an annual infocomm competition started in 1986.  It has been organised and hosted by the Ministry of Education (MOE) for 19 years before SP took over the baton in 2004.  In 2006, the 22nd NSC was organised as one of the ten challenges of the inaugural National Infocomm Competition.   Since then it has remained as one of the challenges of the NIC.

The National Infocomm Competition is a multi-themed inter-school challenge created to uncover top infocomm talent in Singapore. Divided into three circuits - secondary schools, junior colleges and ITE/polytechnics – the competition will encompass challenges focused on areas such as business IT, digital media, mobile technology, security & networking and more.

Supported by Ministry of Education, the NIC is organised by IDA and the following organisations including National Technological University, National University of Singapore, Singapore Institute of Management, Singapore Management University, Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Nanyang Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic, Singapore Polytechnic, Temasek Polytechnic, Institute of Technical Education, Information Technology Standards Committee, Singapore Computer Society and Singapore Science Centre.
