Course Description

Digitalisation has begun to change the way companies operate. The Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), which is also known as Industry 4.0, has been elevating traditional processes to involve smart solutions, AI-powered automation, and other IoT technology in most businesses. This transformation created a great demand for digitally-skilled talents in Information Technology (IT) and related industries.

The Diploma in Information Technology programme is designed to equip students with broad-based knowledge and future-oriented skills such as Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud Computing, Cybersecurity and Information Security. These tech disruptive skills are highly sought after in many industries worldwide.

Upon completion of this programme, students can join the workforce, become technopreneurs or further their studies at our partner universities in various fields of specialisation such as IoT, Cybersecurity and Software Development.
