The Singapore Institute of Technology is making major changes to its curriculum to ensure its students are better prepared for the workforce of the future.
SIT is infusing about 15 to 20 per cent of its degree programmes with content that cuts across disciplines, starting with fields like accountancy, mechanical engineering and occupational therapy.
However, SIT will implement this interdisciplinary push in a more targeted way. Courses and projects will be customised for each degree programme so they stay relevant to the main profession students are training for.
Additionally, SIT is introducing more micro-modules outside students’ core studies in areas such as general knowledge and workplace skills. These include topics like intellectual property, understanding financial statements, career management and interpersonal skills.
