What our alumni say about :


"The journey in RP has been enjoyable and fruitful. Not only have I picked up critical technical skills through the diploma. RP has also imparted lifelong skills with its Problem-based Learning pedagogy. This includes communicating effectively through daily presentations and thinking critically in order to tackle daily issues effectively and efficiently. RP has played an important role in shaping me into who I am today."

- Alex Sharma, DIT, Class of 2007
  Development Programme Manager

“RP allowed me to discover and transform myself from being complacent and quiet to being more confident and unafraid to make mistakes. RP also provided me with ample opportunities to achieve further. Looking at the things that I’ve accomplished in RP, I’ve learnt that even though there may be obstacles, I will face these obstacles with the right mind-set.”
