Diploma (Conversion) in Web and Programming


The Infocomm Media 2025 Master Plan has highlighted that software development is one of the key job areas that requires manpower. According to the master plan, our infocomm manpower pool must widen to include graduates from Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and other fields and through programmes that convert them to tech specialists to take on jobs in the emerging tech fields. With the growing pervasiveness of infocomm technology, the workforce will increasingly need to go beyond the basic usage of computers and mobile devices to use infocomm technologies to solve day to day business problems and improve efficiency and productivity. With the increased demand for infocomm technology, many roles in the 21st century will require coding and computational thinking skills to develop software and applications for both the infocomm sector as well as for non-infocomm sectors.
