The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) annouced that it will have a total of six campuses in Singapore by 2014. Five of the campuses will be co-located within Singapre’s 5 polytechnics and SIT Headquarters will be located elsewhere in Singapore. The objective of SIT is to provide a convenient and cheaper pathway for polytechnic graduates seeking a university degree.

SIT will be rolling out the first eight degree programmes in August 2010. Professor Tan Chin Tiong, president of SIT, said: “If you look at polys currently, they are very well-built in terms of infrastructure – the labs, studios… so there’s no reason not to leverage on what they already have.” The establishment of SIT was announced in May 2009 by Dr Ng Eng Hen, the Minister for Education.
