More Employment Opportunities for IT Graduates in Singapore
- Carmela Bignotia Email this article

Information technology courses continue to be an attractive career to pursue as graduates are assured of promising employment opportunities. In Singapore, the 2006 Graduate Employment Survey revealed that six months after graduation, 89% of IT graduates were deployed.

Furthermore, the survey also revealed that 60% of the graduates were unemployed not because they have no job offer but rather were just being selective. This means that about 96% of ITE graduates were able to get a job six months after graduation.

Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Minister of Education in Singapore said that the country is exerting effort to improve their IT industry. They aim to make Singapore a global leader in technical education. One positive move is their affiliation with Germany's Gottlieb-Daimler-Schule - which is under Baden-Wrttemberg's Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports. The result of the partnership is the first IT Technical Engineer Diploma in Machine Technology.

Under this initiative, ITE staff will work with staff from the German Institute to provide training in ITE. The Education Minister also emphasized that the IT industry of Singapore is being noticed and recognized overseas.

Shanmugaratnam said, "In the last year alone, IT received about 750 visitors from 30 countries, including Australia, Japan and Sweden, all of whom were interested in learning about the Singapore VTE system in IT. IT is also being called upon to provide consultancy services and technical assistance to governments and technical education institutions in many countries, such as China, Vietnam, Indonesia and Jordan," said the Education Minister.
