Industry-in-Curriculum Framework Launched to Develop Future Talents

To further align learning with industry developments, an Industry-in-Curriculum (IiC) framework was launched by Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) on 24 May 2023 to ensure students graduate with in-demand skill sets and industry-validated competencies. The event was attended by over 100 partners/companies and the Minister for Education, Chan Chun Sing.

The IiC framework enables the institute of higher learning to collaborate with practitioners in co-developing, co-delivering and co-assessing at least one-third of its curriculum for all full-time diplomas. Following that, students are able to learn industry-current practices through lessons designed by industry experts besides gaining validation of their skills through assessment and feedback.

One such partnership involves Surbana Jurong in training students from the School of Design & Environment (DE) in smart facilities management skills. Through a newly established Integrated Operations Centre for learning, NP is the first institute of higher learning to enable students to work with real-time data on campus facilities—covering cloud-based technologies powered by Internet of Things applications and artificial intelligence, as well as digital twin models. Additionally, the efforts are in line with a preceding grant awarded by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) to spearhead adoption of integrated facilities management.
