The Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Applied Computing [via the Competency-based Stackable Micro-credential (CSM) Pathway] is a three-year direct honours programme offered by SIT. This programme is designed to provide an upgrading pathway for in-employment individuals.

The programme is designed for working adults who would like to upskill or reskill themselves while remaining in full-time employment. This allows them to acquire new competencies to take on larger roles within their organisations, or pivot to new jobs.

The programme will equip learners with a strong technical and theoretical foundation in computing. Learners will enhance their technical competencies through hands-on learning that integrates theory and practical skills in specific areas of computing.

This new CSM pathway comprises three components, namely, micro-credentials, a workforce essentials component and a capstone project.

To minimise disruption to the learner’s work, the micro-credentials will be delivered via a combination of asynchronous and synchronous modes. Selected practicals, laboratory sessions and assessments will be conducted face-to-face. This will provide learners the flexibility to personalise their learning journey as needed for work and personal aspirations, while managing multiple commitments.

Upon completion of each micro-credential, learners will be awarded a Professional Certificate.

Competency-based Education

This programme is predominantly delivered through a competency-based education (CBE) approach where learners acquire and demonstrate mastery of knowledge and skills primarily through hands-on exercises and assessment. This prepares them to be industry-ready where they can apply their newly acquired competencies to their work.

In addition, this programme recognises a learner’s prior learning such as industry certifications or competencies acquired from work. This allows learners to be given credit or exemptions for knowledge and skills that they have previously acquired, and further personalises the learning experience for them.

Programme Components

  1. Micro-credentials (18 credits each)
    • Two (2) micro-credentials covering the foundations in Applied Computing
