Executive Certificates

The Executive Certificate courses are offered on a part-time basis for working adults who wish to plug their knowledge gap and stay relevant by keeping abreast of the latest technological developments.

Each Executive Certificate can generally be completed within one semester (i.e. approximately 4-5 months) and is equivalent to 4 units.

Units attained through completion of Executive Certificate courses can be stacked towards the fulfilment of the related Certificates/Specialist Certificates (i.e. Cert Programme in Engineering) and Bachelor of Technology degree programmes.
