The Infocomm Technology sector in Singapore is undergoing rapid transformation, creating a pressing need for talented professionals who can thrive in this dynamic landscape.

To meet these demands, the Competency-based Stackable Micro-credential (CSM) Pathway in Applied Computing is curated, offering you the opportunity to master the most sought-after competencies through micro-credentials.

Through this pathway, you will have the flexibility to choose micro-credentials tailored to your specific progression needs and be recognised for your acquired competencies through the attainment of Specialist Certificates.

These micro-credentials are designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge to excel in new or advanced job roles in areas such as network security, Agile software development, cybersecurity and machine learning.

The blended learning model employed in each micro-credential combines the best of online and in-person delivery, ensuring a holistic learning experience. You will also be supported by success coaches who will ensure that you have the tools and guidance needed to succeed.

"Knowing that my lifelong learning journey is a shared endeavour made possible through the unwavering belief and support of individuals who recognised my potential, as well as NCS that is investing in my professional and personal growth, is truly heartening. I am grateful for this opportunity to be part of the CSM Pathway, and looking ahead, I am excited to continue growing in my career."
