BUDGET DEBATE: MINISTRY OF EDUCATION
Degrees for poly grads
Admission process begins today for 8 courses from 5 top foreign institutions
By Sandra Davie, Senior Writer
Courses offered by 5 top institutes

•Technical University of Munich (Technische Universitat Munchen) has produced 15 Nobel Prize winners and 10 recipients of the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize, the highest German research prize.

It is among nine elite schools that receive national funding for research under the German Universities Excellence Initiative.

TUM will offer three specialisations: microelectronics, integrated circuit design and automation.


•Newcastle University is a member of the Russell Group, an association of leading research-intensive universities in Britain.

The Bachelor of Engineering in Marine Technology programme it will offer has three specialisations: naval architecture, marine engineering and offshore engineering.


•DigiPen Institute of Technology's graduates are highly sought after by top game developers and publishers such as Nintendo, Electronic Arts, Lucas-Arts, Sony, Microsoft and Dreamworks.

The two degrees it will offer are: Bachelor of Science, specialising in real-time interactive simulation/game design and Bachelor of Arts, specialising in production animation/game design.


•The Culinary Institute of America is among the best and its students have become leading chefs and restaurant owners as well as media personalities.

Its alumni include Anthony Bourdain (author, chef and TV host) and Roy Yamaguchi (author, restaurant owner and former TV Iron Chef).

Details of the degree course will be confirmed soon.


•The University of Nevada, Las Vegas William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration is consistently ranked in the top two for hospitality undergraduate programmes in the United States.

Its alumni include Mr Scott Sibella, president of Mirage Hotel and Casino, and Mr George Maloof, owner and chief executive of The Palms Casino Resort.

It will offer a Bachelor of Science in hotel administration.

THE Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) will start running foreign university degree programmes for polytechnic graduates in August, earlier than originally planned.

SIT initially planned to start offering the courses next year.

But Education Minister Ng Eng Hen said yesterday 'good progress' had been made and as a result, SIT can start its degree programmes ahead of time.

The admission process for eight degree programmes from five top institutions ranging from culinary arts to video game design will now start today.

The Government will provide a roughly 75 per cent fee subsidy for the two-year degree courses - the same as the subsidies it provides for undergraduates at the three local universities. Fees will be about $18,000 over the two years.

The SIT's five partner institutions are top-notch in their fields of specialisation. They include the Technical University of Munich, the German science and engineering institution which has produced 15 Nobel prize winners; the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), consistently ranked as the best culinary school in the United States; and the DigiPen Institute of Technology, dubbed the Harvard for video game developers.

Cant decide between Criminology or Hosp Biz. Any advice? Went for Hosp Biz interview before and it is what worries me. Not sure how difficult is Criminology admission process as compared...
