Computing/IT remains to be one of the hottest disciplines of the decade. With the increase in digital services and systems, computing students are high in demand and the career prospects are excellent. If you wish to study computing, here are some of the courses that are available to foreign students in Singapore.

SIM – University of London

Data Science and Business Analytics

This programme is awarded by University of London (UOL), UK and developed by the member institution, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

LSE is one of the foremost social science universities in the world. Since its foundation in 1895, it has acquired a worldwide reputation for the quality of its research – 50% of its research was rated world-leading and a further 37% internationally excellent in the most recent assessment of research quality in UK universities.

As the world becomes ever more data-driven, analytical skills are in high demand but very short supply. Few companies are exploiting quantitative techniques to their full potential, often due to a lack of in-house expertise. By pursuing undergraduate level study in data science and business analytics, graduates will be highly sought-after by employers as the race to gain a competitive edge in the data arena intensifies. From asset management to pharmaceuticals, retail to insurance, the future is bright for any aspiring data scientist.

Curtin Singapore

Diploma of Information Technology

The Diploma of Information Technology addresses a significant market demand for skills associated with the design of distributed computing environments and the networks that underpin them.

Learn about computer technology, hardware and software, as well as computer communications and network management. Study the fundamentals of programming and theoretical knowledge of computing.

This course leads to the Bachelor of Computing (Cyber Security), Bachelor of Information Technology, and Bachelor of Science (Data Science).

Bachelor of Information Technology

This course covers fundamental programming and security skills of modern computing and computer networks, specialising in various aspects of distributed computing.

You will use Python as a tool for learning network and other programming. Linux skills are taught throughout the course, starting with the basics and progressing to advanced topics.

You’ll develop a sound knowledge of computer systems and processes involved in software development and maintenance.

Curtin works closely with industry partners to optimise course content and this degree is designed to prepare you for careers in high-demand areas of computing.

Bachelor of Science (Data Science)

Data scientists collate and analyse large volumes of data and communicate their findings to a range of audiences. Their ability to use big data to predict future trends is becoming an essential part of decision making in business and government.

Data is being generated at an unprecedented rate and its availability will continue to increase. Every industry is using large volumes of data – from predicting weather patterns and optimising harvesting in agriculture, to improving patient diagnosis in the health industry, to enhancing the management of remote infrastructure in mining.

This is a multidisciplinary major. It combines studies in computing, emerging internet technologies, media and statistics. You will gain a foundation in programming and statistics, which will form the basis of higher-level studies in data mining, data security and computer simulation.

This course builds your capacity to extract, analyse and visualise large volumes of data and communicate analytical outcomes to a range of audiences. You’ll graduate equipped to enter a range of industries where data science is key to innovation.

James Cook University

Diploma of Information Technology

Students with Year 12, GCE ‘A’ Level or its equivalent but do not meet direct entry to a degree program are eligible to pursue this qualification.

Students in this course will be given a tailored program within the allocated study period to acquire the necessary skills needed to progress to an undergraduate degree program.

The Diploma of Higher Education (Information Technology) will also provide an exit point for early graduates who wish to undertake advanced skills or paraprofessional work in the industry.

Upon completion, students may be given advanced standing of 8 subjects into the Bachelor of Information Technology Program.

Bachelor of Information Technology

This course brings together the knowledge and skills that are essential for professional IT careers along with subjects in interactive visualisation, games, big data and data mining, interactive 2D/3D graphics and web technologies, mobile technologies, programming and design thinking, and programming.
