Students at Ngee Ann Polytechnic can now take a minor subject from a different discipline under a pilot programme, to expand their knowledge base and widen their job prospects.
The minors can be undertaken through four pathways: professional skills, entrepreneurship, global readiness and social leadership.
Students can choose from 10 minors in areas such as data analytics, Internet of things, foreign languages and global readiness skills. Each minor will require the completion of three learning units. Each learning unit ranges from 45 to 60 hours over a semester.
At the end of their three-year diploma programme, students will be awarded a minor certificate on top of their diploma.
Last year, NP also introduced the Career Jumpstart package for graduating students that allows them to take two free continuing education and training courses offered by NP.
