The Bachelor of Science with Honours in Digital Supply Chain is a three-year direct honours, interdisciplinary supply chain degree programme with the across domains of ICT, Engineering, and Supply Chain Management.
Digital transformation driven by Industry 4.0 and national digitalisation initiatives, has given rise to demand for DSC graduates. E-commerce and COVID-19 have disrupted traditional supply chains, accentuating the need for digital transformation.
Supply chain and logistics companies are increasingly adopting new technologies and developing new capabilities in artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT), and robotics as part of the transformation efforts.
You will possess a competitive advantage given that supply chain and logistics business models and operations are fast evolving with emerging digital technologies. You will acquire interdisciplinary knowledge in three focus areas:
Supply Chain Management will equip you with knowledge and skill sets in designing digital supply chain solutions.
ICT forms the bedrock of foundational computer science and software engineering is essential for mastery of digital skills.
System and Engineering will equip you with knowledge and skill sets in conducting systems modelling, simulation, and managing the digital supply chain integration projects.
Upon graduation, you will take on technical roles in digital transformation, Industry 4.0, systems and solutions development, and systems and project management in the public or private sectors, or embark on further postgraduate study and join research institutions or academia.

With the aim of growing graduates highly valued by the industry, a tight nexus has been forged between the curriculum offered by SIT and the specific skills needed by the industry. SIT works closely with our industry partners to ensure our students develop professional competencies through the Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP), industry capstone projects, and applied research projects.
Through the established partnerships, students can look forward to gaining work attachment, capstone project collaboration and networking opportunities with SLA’s pool of more than 600 members, leading regional supply chain management provider YCH, and premier supply chain technology solutions provider Y3 Technologies.
Integrated Work Study Programme
As part of applied learning, SIT offers extended work placements. Students will undertake an eight-month Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) with a company. You will learn to integrate theories through practice, acquire industry knowledge and develop professional skills in a real-world environment. IWSP provides an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the placement company’s business and culture. The practical experience will allow students to smoothly transit into a career upon graduation.
Term-In Term-Out (TITO)
Digital Supply Chain TITO curriculum structure will facilitate a TITO pathway. In each year of study, students will be spending one trimester out in partnering logistics & supply chain companies on a work-study attachment (inclusive of an eight-month IWSP and Capstone). Students will also visit and attend classes at partnering companies taught by industry experts.
