In support of Singapore’s vision of becoming a Smart Nation, RP held an IoT Industry Day on 30 June 2017, co-organised by RP School of Infocomm (SOI) and RP School of Engineering (SEG).

A number of IoT-centred initiatives were unveiled on the day, including a new Specialist Diploma in Internet of Things, jointly developed by SOI and SEG. Through the Specialist Diploma, course participants will be exposed to industry-standard technologies and to work on IoT industry-based projects centred on smart city and smart-manufacturing applications.

Two Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) were also signed with Sierra Solutions Pte Ltd and Allin Technologies Pte Ltd. These MOUs will provide opportunities for project collaborations, IoT-related research work, internship and mentorship programmes, academic awards as well as scholarships for our students.
