13 Aug 2020
At the virtual SkillsFuture Work-Study Fair, Minister of State for Education and Manpower Gan Siow Huang announced the new Bachelor of Technology in Computing Work-Study Degree, which will be rolled out by the National University of Singapore, in partnership with SkillsFuture Singapore as well as Singapore-based global consumer Internet company Sea. It will be the first SkillsFuture Work-Study Degree to be delivered in a "place-and-train" mode, with participants hired as full-time junior analysts prior to the start of the programme. SP and NP graduates have been invited to apply for the first intake of this programme, while enrolment for subsequent intakes will be open to eligible polytechnic graduates from relevant disciplines. Participants will undergo workplace-based training, assignments and assessments, which will contribute close to 30 per cent of credits towards the degree. Ms Gan also announced three new SkillsFuture Work-Study Programmes, in the biomedical sciences and media sectors that were launched by NYP, RP and TP. Similar story was reported in The New Paper, Lianhe Zaobao, Berita Harian, Channel 5 and CNA.
