President's Welcome

President's Welcome

The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) is Singapore’s first University of Applied Learning and the third largest university by intake in Singapore. SIT’s mission is to maximise the potential of our learners and to innovate with industry, through an integrated applied learning and research approach, so as to contribute to the economy and society.

The last few years have seen disruptions on the technological, social and environmental fronts. More than ever, we need to prepare students for evolving job opportunities, and for a lifetime of careers. Placing industry and individuals at the heart of SIT, we offer specialised degree programmes that prepare our graduates to be work-ready professionals and lifelong learners, contributing to and impacting both industry and society.

As a pioneer in the applied learning pathway in university education in Singapore, our pedagogy embraces experiential and authentic learning – key ingredients to nurture active, lifelong learners who are able to hit the ground running when they graduate. Our holistic education model not only ensures that we develop graduates with a mastery of deep disciplinary knowledge, but with relevant transferable and inter-disciplinary skills and know-how needed to function effectively and with agility in a fast-changing industry landscape. As Singapore’s premier university of applied learning, we continue to find new ways to deliver these programmes, integrating work and study in a symbiotic continuum. 

In research, SIT is positioned to bridge knowledge creation and utilisation. Our focus is on applied research with impact to businesses.  We focus on translational research and innovation activities — where we work with other institutes of higher learning, research institutes and companies – to bring research results closer to end products and services. The outcomes that we seek in applied research are to help businesses build new solutions, and through these engagements, inform and sharpen our curriculum.

I invite you to have a look around the university and get to know us better. Join us as a student, staff, partner or supporter, and participate in our journey as we transform individuals, industry and society.
