Vision: A leader in innovative university education by integrating learning, industry and community.
Mission: To develop individuals who build on their interests and talents to impact society by providing a nurturing environment that is uniquely enriched by world-class partners.
Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) is Singapore’s university of applied learning. It aims to be a leader in innovative university education by integrating learning, industry and community.
SIT offers applied degree programmes targeted at growth sectors of the economy with a unique pedagogy that integrates work and study. It also offers specialised degree programmes in partnership with world-class universities.
SIT also aims to cultivate in its students four distinctive traits, or the SIT-DNA, which will prepare them to be ‘thinking tinkerers’, who are ‘able to learn, unlearn and relearn’, be ‘catalysts for transformation’ and become ‘grounded in the community’ as well.
SIT was incorporated in 2009 as an institute of higher learning (IHL) to meet the growing demand from polytechnic graduates. In 2014, SIT became an Autonomous University (AU) in Singapore and launched its first SIT degree programmes.
Since its establishment, SIT has grown from its inaugural batch of 500 students in 10 degree programmes to over 6,000 students in 43 degree programmes from across SIT and nine overseas university partners. These degree programmes are grouped into five clusters – Engineering (ENG), Chemical Engineering and Food Technology (CEFT), Infocomm Technology (ICT), Health and Social Sciences (HSS), as well as Design and Specialised Businesses (DSB).
