Studying in SP's DIT course has been an incredible experience. I've always had a passion for IT, and being able to study the subject I love made the journey very fun and engaging. I've been taught rock solid skills, and been mentored by lecturers who have gone above and beyond to build me up, both professionally and personally. With the emphasis on character and academics together, I believe the course has made me a better person - someone who wants to use his skills to help make the future brighter. My achievements are not my own, but a culmination of the guidance and work put in by the lecturers.

SP's DIT course has empowered me with the ability to improve lives, impress friends and invent new solutions. I learned how to design websites, create games and other IT solutions. I was also given countless opportunities to develop not just as a programmer, but in many other areas. One such experience was a trip to DigiPen Institute of Technology, Washington, USA, where I attended lectures by renowned game designers and developers. I also got to work on a game project using their proprietary engine, the Zero Engine while there. I believe with the strong foundation SP has provided me, I will be able to achieve much greater heights when I start university studies.

My 3 years in SP passed by
too fast, but I gained new knowledge and experience to propel myself forward to face the challenges in the ever-changing IT world. Meeting so
many great and caring lecturers during my years in DIT is really a blessing. Their advice and encouragement made me a better person. DIT provided me a holistic education experience which no other could. I was given the opportunity to have my internship in the United States where I realised the importance of social ability, self-learning and commitment. Studying in SP has been an enriching experience for me as well as being my first step towards my dream career as a game developer.

Studies are only part of the equation that brings me to where I am today. I believe every Polytechnic’s courses are meant to help students to achieve academic excellence. But SP’s DIT course is a whole different suite of experience that exposes students not only to latest technology, but also imbuing character development, business and social network acumen leading me to start up my own company today. In my 3 years of studies, I was given the opportunity and guidance to be involved in both technology and business-related events. The culture in SP-DIT is not exactly result-centric but instead, it places great emphasis on the students’ learning journey which getting good results is just a by-product of this process.
