SINGAPORE: The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) and SP Group are looking to upskill and reskill SP's employees, through a new three-year endeavour.
The organisations have signed a memorandum of understanding at the Energy Market Authority's Energy Innovation event, an annual meet-up of industry experts and researchers.
A pioneer cohort of SP employees will undertake a full-time three-year Electrical Power Engineering undergraduate degree programme at SIT, beginning in September 2022.
Jointly offered by SIT and Newcastle University, the degree programme will enable students to experience hands-on, industry-focused activities.
Five SP employees will be onboarded as full-time students, who will apply existing practices from the workplace and hone their skills through actual work exposure. SP will sponsor their studies as they pursue their career aspirations and grow their engineering capabilities.
