The MSc (Industry 4.0) is a multidisciplinary programme that taps on the deep expertise of six NUS academic units, namely: the College of Design and Engineering, the Faculty of Science, the Institute of Systems Science, the School of Business, the School of Computing, and the School of Continuing and Lifelong Education. It was designed in alignment with the Singapore Economic Development Board’s (EDB) Smart Industry Readiness Index, to support Singapore’s drive towards becoming a Smart Nation.
The programme aims to equip its graduates with an in-depth appreciation of the technologies defining the latest industrial revolution, as well as how they are transforming organisations and impacting business processes and functions.
Apart from the technical skills and knowledge they need to keep pace with the latest developments, graduates can also expect to gain a holistic, “big picture” perspective of Industry 4.0, extending beyond their current work and study areas. This shift will enable them to be more effective in their work roles, and to contribute to their organisation’s digital transformation journey.
The programme also features a six-month-long capstone project, where a team of students work on a project sponsored by an actual company. Capstone projects may span different areas, including Internet of Things (IOT), data analytics across various sectors, digital supply chain, and cloud computing.
Offered on both a full-time and part-time basis, the programme is taught by world-class NUS faculty, as well as industry practitioners with extensive field experience.
