Enrichment Programme

Enrichment courses are courses conducted by our instructors, faculty members, guests from various industries, passionate students or our alumni. Sometimes, there are excess capacities which will then be open to the rest of the university.

They aim to:

  • Expand the knowledge base of students
  • Equip students with marketable and industry-relevant job skills
  • Prepare students for professional certifications

Such courses usually span between half a day to 5 full days, and are purposely priced affordably for students. They are usually held during vacation breaks, and are voluntarily signed up for.

Students do not gain academic credits or course exemptions by completing an enrichment course, but take advantage of these instructor-led sessions to gain additional practical knowledge. Most students find the skills picked up through enrichment courses extremely helpful for some of their courses, internships and for some IS Application Project (IS480)/ Information Systems Project Experience.

Enrichment courses are scheduled depending on the availability of instructors, the demand for certain skill sets and matching instructional expertise. They are also strategically designed to complement the BSc (Information Systems) undergraduate degree curriculum in constructive ways.

Courses are usually conducted during summer break (April-August) and the December vacation.

Registration is usually around term breaks & can be competitive for certain popular courses.

Types of Enrichment Courses

Broadly speaking, courses can be categorised into 2 groups:

  • Licensed courses: are based on official curriculum developed by independent commercial entities.

  • Non-licensed courses: are specially created by our own instructors or based on Web content that are free for use in academic institutions.
