Are you familiar with the reviewing programmes being run by the top notch universities in Singapore? Yes, this positive development now brings forth unconventional degree courses to serve the entire need of students across the country.

Now you can easily find a wider range of courses, from game design to translation and interpretation, allowing the students to pursue their passions. Moreover, these courses essentially prepare them for the manpower demands. Following the same idea, it is the responsibility of the National University of Singapore (NUS) to keep pace with the emerging demands, introducing new and creative courses such as business analytics and information security. By the end of the year, it will introduce analytics degree and a data science course.

How it is expected to idealize the skills in unique areas?

Experts believe that pupils can now make best use of their diverse inclinations and strengths to meet with the industry needs and global trends. This is probably the mainreason why students are more attracted to these courses. They are really looking for non-traditional types of degree programmes.

In the same consequences, the newer universities including Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), SIM University (UniSIM), and the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), have introduced a number of distinctive courses.

Here are some of them:

  • SUTD: Introducing unique courses in areas like engineering product development, this university aims to encourage and bring innovations to life.
  • UniSIM: It is the only private university to cater to courses like translation and interpretation, and human factors in safety. While the translation and interpretation course introduces learners to the latest translation technology, the latter helps to hone their skills with knowledge of human abilities and limitations to tackle varying work issues.
  • SIT: It now offers courses in pharmaceutical engineering, hospitality business, and game design. The pharmaceutical engineering course integrates engineering and science, grooming students to work not only in the pharmaceutical industry, but also for food industry and life sciences. The classes here are small, having just 50 to150 students.

In all, you can expect many more creative courses to boost the nation’s future in coming years.
