More polytechnic students will soon get the chance to explore career opportunities in the urban sector.
Education Minister Ong Ye Kung recently launched the Future City Programme, which aims to bring together students from the five polytechnics here, industry partners, and government agencies to work on infrastructure and community improvement projects.
The Future City Programme will focus on the fields of engineering, information technology and design.
The initiative is an opportunity for the polytechnics to work together to encourage more students to consider career opportunities in these fields.
Mr Ong, who spoke during the Education and Career Guidance Symposium held at Nanyang Polytechnic, said: “This (programme) is interesting, because it enables students to understand how different skill sets in engineering, data analytics, IT, and design can be applied in a multi-disciplinary project.”
