"DIT lecturers taught me not only the skills but also gave me the confidence, courage and resilience to face this uncertain world in my next phase of life. I can't say my three years in SP has been smooth-sailing because its curriculum is meant to prepare us for the rigour that will hit us in the industry. As my lecturers always told me, we might not graduate with the belief that we will excel in the future, but we will be trained to take on challenges ahead. I’m ready." – Glenn Ng, DIT top student.
While most graduates are waiting for National Service, some have already secured employment. For example, Jason is currently working as a campus advocate and software developer for Microsoft Singapore while waiting for to be enlisted.
