Besides strong technical expertise, we believe that communication skills, the ability to work constructively in a team, strong professional ethics and a gritty attitude are essential ingredients. And these are precisely the attributes that we endeavour to equip our students with through Singapore Management University's new BSc in Software Engineering - WSDeg.


The Bachelor of Science Software Engineering - WSDeg from Singapore Management University is a full-time, four-year undergraduate degree programme which combines classroom-learning with structured on-the-job training. It features a rigorous 52-week apprenticeship where students work in development teams under the mentorship of professional software engineers.

The collaboration with the programme’s first anchor partner - Government Technology Agency of Singapore (GovTech) – was formalised with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding by Professor Pang Hwee Hwa, Dean of SCIS, and Mr D N Prasad, Senior Director of Strategy, People & Organisation, GovTech.
