SIT’s curriculum and clinical attachment will ensure that I will be ready with hands-on knowledge and skills to work as an Allied Health professional in Singapore. After graduation, I will be working as a physiotherapist in a charity organisation under the Career Conversion Programme, where I hope to improve people’s health, wellbeing and quality of life.
I chose to study Food Technology as I have a deep interest in the integral relationship between food and its nutritional status. My experience at SIT has provided me with vital skills that allowed me to seamlessly integrate my role as a research officer in my current organisation.

The joint programme by SIT-UofG not only encompasses traditional Aerospace Engineering modules such as Aerospace Propulsion and Flight Dynamics, but also equips us with today’s necessary skill sets in programming and knowledge for the ever evolving UAV industry. This is what drew me into the course as it prepares us for multiple career pathways after graduation. In addition, the Integrated Work Study Programme allows us to experience the industry first-hand and gives us a chance to evaluate our interests and strengths – which is what sets the programme apart from the rest.
