SINGAPORE - School is not just classroom learning.

The collaborative projects Ahmad Adham and Nico Siew took part in while studying at ITE College Central, in Ang Mo Kio, have helped them understand their subjects better and given them a deeper understanding of the working world.

Ahmad, 18, is a final-year student pursuing his National Institute of Technical Education Certificate (Nitec) in Visual Effects.

Nico, 22, is in the final year of his Nitec in Mechanical Engineering course.

Both of them, despite taking different courses, have all the tools and resources to help them excel in their studies.

The computer labs at ITE College Central are Ahmad's learning haven as they have all the latest software and digital tools.

Nico hones his skills in the college's engineering workshops, which have the latest equipment sponsored by ball-bearing manufacturer SKF.

But on top of the ITE College Central's learning environment, both students also got to experience what it was like to work in their respective industries.
