SP 70th Anniversary Boilerplate


Established in 1954, Singapore Polytechnic (SP) has been a trailblazer in Singapore's educational landscape. Today, it has 10 schools that offer 30 full-time diploma courses and four common entry programmes for more than 12,499 students. The institution champions innovation in lifelong learning, pedagogy, digitalisation, sustainability, and industry engagement.

In 2015, SP incorporated Continuing Education and Training (CET) in its education model. Since then, SP played an integral role in enterprise transformation, workforce upskilling and reskilling for the future economy. In 2022, it partnered with various institutions to introduce a micro-credentials programme leading to a degree from the Singapore Institute of Technology. Embracing new pedagogical innovations, SP pioneered flipped learning in 2015 and is at the forefront of using Analytics in Education.

Committed to sustainability, SP integrates eco-conscious practices into its curriculum and operations. It aims to develop a net-zero sustainability roadmap and collaborate with industries for innovative, sustainable solutions. The curriculum now includes essential sustainability modules, engaging students in at least one sustainability innovation project.

SP maintains strong industry ties, exemplified by initiatives like the Food Innovation and Resource Centre (FIRC) and a recent MoU with the Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) to deepen industry engagement and talent recruitment.

By ensuring our curriculum is just in time with industry developments, we can offer a solution-driven internship programme to our industry partners. This steers our students to be life-ready, work ready, world-ready, and be of service to industry and society. Our over 235,000 graduates include successful entrepreneurs, top executives in multi-national and public-listed corporations, industry leaders and professionals across various industries, and leaders in government.

In 2024, SP celebrates its 70th anniversary, uniting stakeholders through various celebratory events and activities. For more information, please visit www.sp.edu.sg/sp70 or connect on social media platforms: Facebook and YouTube @SingaporePolytechnic and Instagram and TikTok at @SingaporePoly.
