“I feel that the comprehensive and flexible curriculum, industrial exposure and certifications as well as real-life practices and competitions are the core benefits of studying in DISM. On top of that, there are also plenty of opportunities to hang out with friends while having loads of fun in a wide range of activities. Most importantly there are these friendly, encouraging and helpful lecturers. For those genuinely passionate about an Infocomm Security career, DISM is definitely the path one would not regret taking.”
