They have a new course called Cloud Data Centre Technology and Management, I think that is in line with telecommunications.

There are no aerospace courses in NUS/NTU, but there is in STI though. In Business Engineering, with Honors too.

Well there are no aerospace courses in NTU and NUS per se, but you can get into Business Engineering all the same.

10%. I quote the website itself:

"With effect from 4 Jan 2010, all NYP Alumni who intend to enrol in any NYP's (including SIRS) Non-Funded Public Short courses will enjoy a 10% discount on the course fee excluding GST (Terms & Conditions apply)."

This course is currently trending but Business and Financial informatics will be more valuable in the long run I feel.

But I think business courses might as well be learnt from private institutions since you need a degree to progress right? Whereas poly level IT knowledge should be enough for you to build on?

True in some ways. I do agree that for those planning to take business degrees just enroll in private Us directly...

It's mostly for modules that are not closely related to the course in my case. Like Effecting Learning (APEL) stuff.

Re: Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) discussion thread!

If I am interested in graphic design, should I pick a design school course or an IT course?

design course for sure. You will have to learn some programming and math in IT, which if you hate would really hurt your grades.

Hmm I just tot joining an IT course would give me 2 career options...design alone seem too centric and a bit risky...
