Why so many ??????.....BIT is DL degree loh.....UniSim degrees are all local degrees for adults (21 and above)...How to judge Popular...in terms of certs maybe unisim is too new but is recognise by Spore empolyees...UOW in another hand is recognise world wide (Usa.....) despite it is a aus cert..but for Spore too many grads liao ......It is up to You guys who wana take UOW or Unisim.......Do some research......UOW more popular in IT industry???Can compare to local Grads????
The officer was not wrong when she mentioned UOW is a more popular choice in the IT industry. IT industry meaning those companies that are involved in IT business. If you are providing internal support for a local company or non-IT MNC, then the university where you get your degree from doesn't matter as long as they are not local university.

Let me share with you some of my experience. I graduated few months ago from SIM UOW BIT programme and decided to have a lookout at job opportunities. Most HR from local companies never heard of this university before and I always get the "WHERE IS THIS UNIVERSITY LOCATED?"question. So I have to start the intro... "Largest IT research centre in the southern hemisphere... blah blah"

I decided to change my direction and send resumes to IT outsourcing companies. It was not only "heard of" but also well-received. Especially Indian outsourcing companies, they are simply impressed with UOW and moreover I got a Distinction degree. In result , I joined a foreign bank as a Administrator and got a very good increment.

How do you make use of the 15K toilet paper depends on how you do marketing for it. Those who never heard of UOW is not because it is no good or not famous, simply they are not updated with the latest in the aussie education sector. In Aussie, when it comes to listing out the institutions for IT education, UOW is probably the name you would found in every list, even the shortest. Singapore as a trend follower, would definately accept this degree as it has been done in Aussie. So, do look far.
