Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT)

Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) is Singapore’s university of applied learning. SIT's vision is to be a leader in innovative learning by integrating learning, industry and community. Its mission is to nurture and develop individuals who build on their interests and talents to impact society in meaningful ways.

SIT offers applied degree programmes targeted at growth sectors of the economy with a unique pedagogy that integrates work and study. SIT’s degree programmes feature an eight to 12-month Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) which exemplifies the best of university-industry collaboration.

Since its establishment in 2009, SIT has grown from its inaugural batch of 500 students in 10 degree programmes to over 5,000 students in 44 degree programmes from across SIT and 10 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).

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 finally, become ‘grounded in the community’.
Computer Science in Real-Time Interactive Simulation, BS
Programme Overview
The BS in Computer Science in Real-Time Interactive Simulation programme is a computer science degree focusing on developing, implementing, and programming complex interactive simulations and computer graphics in real-time. This programme uses game development as a tool for teaching advanced computer science concepts. Students begin with a solid foundation in mathematics, physics and programming, then apply that knowledge in yearly team-based projects where they design, program, test, and finally release their own original game software to the public. Those who successfully complete the BS in Computer Science in Real-Time Interactive Simulation programme have the knowledge and skills to produce highly complex software systems at a professional level.

Students in the BS in Computer Science in Real-Time Interactive Simulation programme will learn how to:

  • Program a variety of simulations and game software in core programming languages like C++.
  • Create robust artificial intelligence algorithms to serve as the cognitive processes for computer-controlled objects.
  • Apply concepts such as computer networks, TCP/IP, and internet programming to multi-user software environments.
  • Implement efficient graphical user interfaces (GUIs), including the management of windows, menus, and dialog boxes.
  • Draft technical design documents to aid in the scheduling and organizational aspects of software production

Career Opportunities
Graduates of this programme are prepared to enter the simulation or video game
Industries, as:

  • Software Analyst
  • Computer Scientist
  • Game Engine Developer
  • Software Engineer
