SIT and ISACA Singapore Chapter Sign MoU to Advance Student Development in Technology

The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) and the ISACA Singapore Chapter have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate on academic awards, student development, and presentations and workshops, among other things. This sets the way for SIT students to broaden their options for real-world experience, whether through Capstone collaborations or assisting at ISACA seminars and conferences.

ISACA’s network of professionals can share their considerable knowledge and insights on information technology, information security, and innovation to support SIT’s efforts in preparing graduates for an increasingly digital world as a professional association focused on IT governance, risk, audit, and cybersecurity.

The role of the infocomm technology professional is evolving constantly and there is a strong need for local talent to be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skillsets. We are appreciative of the contribution from ISACA that will support SIT to produce work-ready graduates. Our students will benefit from the early industry exposure and applied learning opportunity that ISACA provides.

− Professor John Thong, Deputy President (Academic) & Provost, SIT

ISACA Singapore has industry professionals who promote the “positive” aspects of technology and the importance of good and effective governance in the digital and cyber domains, attracting the attention of government leaders, stimulating new ideas for industry, and being cited by academic authors’ profiles in education for lifelong learning.

Good domain expertise is critical in this era of accelerating Industry 4.0 to create resilience through design in every industry. ISACA Singapore, with its substantial membership of experienced cyber leaders, is pleased to collaborate with SIT in preparing Singapore’s future cyber leaders.

In the fields of technology and cybersecurity, there are still skills shortages. SIT better equips students, and hence enterprises, with the skills and expertise they need to propel innovation through trusted and secure technology, through connections like these.

Singapore’s highly skilled worker shortage is predicted to reach 1.1 million by 2030, accounting for around 61.3% of the workforce. The recent pandemic has compounded an already dire situation, with COVID-19-related border restrictions and severe foreign labour rules exacerbating the tech talent shortage.

To solve the skills deficit, Singapore established Tech. Pass, a visa granted by the Singapore Economic Development Board to international tech entrepreneurs, leaders, and specialists entering the city-state. In response to a scarcity of local talent, Singapore-based enterprises have begun to expand their talent search beyond the country’s borders. They’re now focusing on talent hotspots that are known for producing top-tier IT talent.

The prior strategy for dealing with Singapore’s skills shortfall will no longer work as the war for professional talent heats up. They may not have any extra talent and are fighting their own fights to keep the professionals they do have. While adopting a remote-first approach for their workforces is a positive move, Singapore organisations must know where to hire from in order to construct future teams.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, students enrolling in the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) can now sign up for two new courses in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and digital supply chain. The Bachelor of Science in Applied Artificial Intelligence (AAI) and Digital Supply Chain (DSC) being launched in the new academic year are three-year direct honours programmes. AAI emphasises implementing artificial intelligence (AI) within software systems, while DSC focuses on emerging technologies in the digital transformation of the logistics and supply chain sector.

SIT has launched the DSC programme, designed in consultation with industry partners. The programme places a strong emphasis on the development of capabilities and the adoption of emerging technologies required in industry digital transformation efforts. The interdisciplinary programme aims to equip students with knowledge and skills in domains that would support the transformation of the supply chain and logistics sector.
