Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is revamping its part-time engineering degree programmes to provide more opportunities for busy working professionals to get a degree.

It will be also be introducing a new part-time degree programme in Computer Science from August, giving working professionals more opportunities to upgrade their skills.
These programmes will be offered over three semesters instead of the current two semesters. Students will also have greater flexibility in deciding the number of courses they take in each semester.
Courses will also be offered during the inter-semester breaks to maximise the time for teaching.
NTU will also be introducing two new short-term modular certificate programmes, comprising four to five courses.
They are designed for working professionals to update their knowledge on specific topics in industries such as energy, oil and gas, and offshore engineering.
