hi, i am currently y1 S1 in ntu but I intend to withdraw now and apply to SIT (ICT). Will my application be considered as a fresh application or transfer application? If its the latter, am I given a few choices of course or only one? Hope someone with same experience can share with me your experience. thanks!
You may check with the admission department on the procedure.

Writing an email to them will clear your doubt.

You maybe able to do credit transfer.

Another note is tuition grant.

Some module like Discrete Maths can transfer from NTU SCSE to SIT. NYP Computing Math 1 + 2 too can used.

You are welcome to SIT Open House this coming weekend. Talk to the student there to know SIT unique applied learning experience.

If you are still in NTU when applying to SIT, it will be considered as transfer application. But if u withdrawn from NTU then apply, will be a fresh application. If is fresh application, you can choose up to 6 choices but usually they will consider first 2.

Btw are you formally a polytechnic student doing any ICT related diploma?

Just a side note that in SIT-ICT history, I heard that none is from A level. As the curriculum is too intensive for anyone without prior knowledge in programming.
Imagine learning 5 programming language in 3 months. 10 language for first year student.

Sorry I’m not sure about it as ICT usually are from poly students.

I am formally a polytechnic student but not in ICT related course. Tbh, I am actually quite worried that I may not be able to cope since I have no IT background. Do u have any advice or suggestions as to how I can better prepare myself for the course? Any good websites to suggest for self-learning the programming?

To be honest, you need to have the ability of super fast learner and able to self-study most of the content.

As spoken before by our program director Prof Steven Wong, this course is design to be very intensive, doing 10 Programming Language in about 6 months (1 Year if include breaks).

Some module details like:

ICT1002 Programming Fundamentals:
We are mainly touching on Python Programming for 1.5 Months. It covers the fundamental of coding a real world "console" application that is able to improve business operation.
For the Next 1.5 month(or in fact 4 weeks), touching on "C Programming" Language. You are required to self learn most of the content as it will go deep into linked-list and it's fundamental algorithm.

ICT1003 Computer Organisation and Architecture:
This module covers mainly on how a micro-controller works, it is taught by our Program Director Prof Steven Wong. You will get to know this term "Fetch-Decode-Execute" and also doing Assembly Programming on the issued Micro-Controller (As of now, TI MSP430).

ICT1004 Web Systems Technology:
This Module Covers mainly on how your Website let's say forums.hardwarezone.com.sg works in theory, how to code HTML5,CSS3,JavaScript,PHP7,MySQL. Project and Exam base assessment.

ICT1005 Mathematics and Statistics:
This Module is cover in 2 parts, first is the Discrete Math for example:
"The Cat is a rabbit, Rabbit is a plant".
Therefore Cat is a plant.
(Hypothetical Syllogism p → q, q → r conclusion: p → r )
Mainly is logic, you won't see numbers in this type of Math.

Next Is Statistics where you will do the fundamental of it and it covers hypothesis testing etc.

CAN GPA 2.989 ENTER SIT? PLEASE HELP ME OUT
You can always try and give it a go. It also depends on the degree and how well you do during the interview, I guess. My friend managed to enter SIT (school of ict/eng) with 2.97 gpa. All the best

To TUM students.

I heard that during the last semester you have to spend time in Germany doing the bachelor's thesis. In general, how many months does a student stay in Germany during the final sem? Is it all 6 months?
