Software Systems

Immerse in world-class software development curriculum and training that connects research and practice.

A focus for advanced education and applied research in Software Engineering, Design and Development, linking academic theory to industry practice

In today’s modern age, software is the fuel of the technology engine. Without it there would be no social media, internet TV or radio and smartphones, amongst others. We would still be relying on traditional print media for news and when it comes to personal entertainment, we would be making our way to the shop for our dose of music CDs. e-Commerce would be non-existent and life as we know it would not have progressed to what it has become today.

As technology becomes an essential part of our daily lives, what separates one technology from another is its software. It is the key component that determines a technology’s user-friendly capability and, in most instance, making it fun to use as well. There’s no denying that we are in the golden age of software. Development and design are the foundations of truly successful and applicable software.

One of the tenets of software development is that skill beats scale every time. A small core team of highly skilled software architects and developers can indeed deliver high impact high resilience systems faster and better than a large team of less experienced workers.

NUS-ISS offers an extensive range of core courses to equip IT professionals with the necessary and important tools to elevate their competency and increase their capabilities, enabling them to make even more significant contributions to their organisations.

The Software Systems training curriculum is aligned with national focus areas and national training frameworks, which enables us to offer courses that are relevant and timely to the demands of today’s technology-driven business environments.
