Rising number of tech grads in Singapore set to plug gap in sector
18 Nov 2019
The number of local university graduates from technology-related courses is set to grow by two-thirds by 2022, which experts say will go some way towards plugging the gap in the sector. The intake for infocomm and digital technology courses across the six autonomous universities shot up from 1,250 in 2015 to 2,050 last year. SP’s School of Computing lecturer Dora Chua opined that the demand for local tech talent still outweighs the supply, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises. Dora also shared that the most talented are often drawn to multinationals, banks or fintech companies that can afford higher pay packages. In the article, an NP graduate also shared his plans to take up a tech course.
