MDIS School of Technology (SOT)
The MDIS School of Technology (SOT) aims to help students who are keen in Information Technology (IT), gain a broad-based and holistic education in IT by providing a comprehensive suite of programmes from diploma to bachelor’s degree.
The undergraduate programmes are awarded by well-accredited and reputable Northumbria University (UK), ranked 37th in The Guardian University Guide 2016: League Table for Computer Sciences and Information Systems.
The School offers specialised programmes in Computer and Network Technology, Computer Security, Cloud Computing, Data Center Virtualisation and Information Technology, to meet the needs of the world’s fastest growing e-Business and IT industries. The programmes focus on practical skills and are highly sought after by any industry needing IT savvy staff.
The School works closely with employers and universities to ensure its programmes are relevant, rigorous, and of high quality. The curricula is regularly reviewed and kept up-to-date with current developments in the IT industry. This ensures that students are equipped with practical skills and knowledge highly desired by employers when they graduate. Students are also taught by lecturers who have a wealth of corporate and training experience.
True to its aim of providing a technology-driven education, SOT’s students were the first to embark on using MDIS’ Blackboard Learning Management System – an e-learning and community platform, where students can access lecturers’ notes, correspond with their lecturers, participate in online discussions, and even view video-recorded classes for revision purposes.
The School is also a member of the student chapter of the Singapore Computer Society (SCS) and a member of the Singapore infocomm Technology Federation (SiTF).
