Singapore Widens Collaboration for Education’s Digital Transformation

Universities and other higher education institutions can help meet the growing demands of students, faculty, and campuses by implementing digital transformation and creating a learning environment in which everything connects. As a result, to fully benefit from modern technologies, technological and educational changes are required.

The National University of Singapore has signed an agreement with a global telecommunications solution to collaborate on Industry 4.0 technological advancements.

The areas of collaboration include investigating how technology can improve the educational experience for NUS students, working together to conduct research in the fields of artificial intelligence (AI), advanced robotics, and the internet of things, as well as developing leaders and talents in the telecommunications sector through internships and a global trainee programme. NUS would also offer training for a global workforce as part of the cooperation.

Collaborations between NUS and industry, according to NUS President Professor Tan Eng Chye, are an important part of the University’s vision of becoming a leading global university shaping the future.

NUS is uniquely positioned to create and convene platforms that bring together and connect talents, ideas, resources, and opportunities due to its breadth and depth of academic expertise across many disciplines, as well as its rich networks and connections with academic institutions, industry, enterprises, and government agencies.

Similarly, the SMU Academy, the professional training arm of Singapore Management University (SMU), has introduced two new programmes focusing on two major aspects of the highly anticipated Web 3.0 – Decentralized Autonomous Organisations (DAOs) and the Metaverse.

The two introductory programmes “Understanding DAO” and “Diving into the Metaverse,” developed in collaboration with a technical consulting firm, aim to assist working professionals and business leaders in grasping the fundamentals of DAOs and the Metaverse, as well as identifying opportunities for application of technologies such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and blockchain in their respective industry or organisation.

The two programmes are being launched in the context of Singapore’s commitment to growing the Web 3.0 ecosystem and community, as well as the emergence of a new wave of Web 3.0 technologies.

The programmes will benefit curious minds by simplifying the areas of DAOs and the metaverse and providing a steppingstone into Web 3.0. Participants who want to work in the fast-paced and competitive Web 3.0 space can strengthen their credentials by obtaining a certificate from SMU upon completion of the programme.

Digital transformation in education has revolutionised the industry, and institutions are conscious that the digital step is simply the beginning of a path of ongoing innovation, even though it began at different times and is proceeding at different rates. Embracing the optimisation and transformation of the learning experience involves more than simply reproducing in-person courses online.

Moreover, the Sustainable Textile Research Centre has been established by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and a multinational manufacturing company to promote innovation in textile recycling and turn research findings into workable solutions for cities like Singapore.

The $6 million collaborative research centre will investigate topics including recycling textile waste into fibre and developing the next generation of eco-friendly and sustainable textiles.

The objective is to investigate the chemistry of various textile components and identify the best procedures and methods necessary to move us closer to a circular textile economy. This is consistent with both Singapore’s 2030 Green Plan and Zero Waste Mission.

This decisive step will pave the way for future generations to inherit a cleaner, greener Singapore, with better job prospects, a more sustainable environment, and a brighter future.
