Enhancing our programmes
To keep abreast with the latest industry needs and practices, Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) continually evaluates, fine-tunes and enhances its programmes and offerings.
|•||The School of Business & Accountancy’s Diploma in International Logistics & Supply Chain Management gives students a unique perspective of international business operations and trade. The course, which offers internships with top logistics and supply chain companies such as DHL and MAERSK Singapore, replaced the Diploma in Logistics Management and the Diploma in International Supply Chain Management.|
|•||In support of the Ministry of Education’s move to increase the number of Continuing Education and Training (CET) places in part-time polytechnic diploma programmes, the CET Academy has launched eight new diplomas for working professionals and part-time students. Each diploma can be completed in two and a half years.|
|•||With support from the Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Council, the CET Academy and WSH Institute have developed the Train-The-Trainers Programme to help WSH trainers and curriculum developers become more effective in imparting their knowledge and be up-to-date with the latest developments in the field of workplace safety and health.|
|•||To sharpen the focus of diploma courses centred on design and the built environment, the School of Design & Environment (DE) was set up in April 2012. The School hosts four diploma programmes – Product Design & Innovation, Sustainable Urban Design & Engineering, Hotel & Leisure Facilities Management, and Real Estate Business.|
|•||The Diploma in Psychology & Community Services was renamed as the Diploma in Psychology Studies to reflect its renewed focus on psychology. Offering a strong foundation in key aspects of psychology, the course provides students with a solid grounding in clinical and counselling settings.|
|•||Two NP departments were renamed to better reflect their functions within the Polytechnic. The School of Humanities is now known as the School of Humanities & Social Sciences to better reflect its diverse diploma programmes. The Technology Development Office is now called the Technology Development & Innovation Office to underline its role in supporting innovation across all discipline areas.|
