According to the Singapore University of Technology and Design, around 53 per cent of its 6th batch of graduates have either secured jobs or will be working on their own start-ups. Another 20 per cent plan to pursue graduate studies.
SUTD added that the top hiring sectors include information and communication, business and management consultancy, finance and insurance, and research and development.
One of SUTD’s recent graduates is Ms Faith See. Ms See has joined DBS Bank’s graduate associate programme, known as the Skill Enhancement Education and Development (Seed) programme. She secured the position in October last year. She is currently a cyber-security engineer, although she can explore other roles in rotation.
Another graduate, Mr Safafisalam Bohari Jaon, who studied engineering systems and design, managed to get a place in March in a graduate programme with insurance provider FWD, where he will have a hand in its digital strategy.
Mr Safafisalam, who studied in Raffles Institution, said that giving back to the community is something he feels strongly about.
