Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has set up a new college called the College of Professional and Continuing Education (PaCE) which provides courses for working adults, in particular, PMETs.
In partnership with the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), PaCE will design 28 undergraduate-level courses for part-time study starting this August. The courses, which are drawn from NTU’s undergraduate degree programmes, will last for three months, and will focus on data analytics, digital electronics, nanomaterials, molecular genetics and enterprise and innovation.
The courses offered by the new college will be taught both online and offline, using the flipped classroom pedagogy where students access and study course material online, before meeting their classmates and professors for discussions in person.
Students taking the courses will be given academic credits, which can be accumulated to qualify for a specialist certificate or degree.
SkillsFuture credits can be used to offset course fees.
