StackUp - Startup Tech Talent Development

Empower Your Imagination

Empower Your Imagination

NUS-ISS has all the fundamentals to lead this movement where we create an eco-system to help build the tech caliber of Tech Startups. We are poised to amalgamate the disciplines using a 'whole-stack' approach to co-create the next engine of growth in Singapore with technologists for technologists.

StackUp is a new curriculum conceived to transform individuals into aspiring technologists. It will equip students with the foundational skills required - from attitude and aptitude to technical competencies - to drive the development of market-relevant tech products from idea through to implementation.

Designed to help new startups and SMEs that rely on open stack technologies, this programme offers the chance to participate in class, immerse in apprenticeships and apply newly-acquired principles and concepts to real-life projects.


We develop stellar tech interns, tech recruits and tech talents to become technologists at startups to advance the digital fabric of a smart world.


Anticipate the future, seize the opportunities. It is our future and within our direct control to define our lives digitally.

StackUp Playbook

  1. Be immersed in the culture of Tech Startups where the ambience and atmosphere of the learning environment is one that's "casual, yet serious". It encourages creativity, expression, collaboration and empowerment.

  2. Be driven by phenomenon-based learning that is authentic and personalised. Students will take their ideas and evolve them into products that address the phenomenon or solve the problem. Such an approach generates the interest and motivation while acquiring capabilities that are directly relevant to them.

  3. Be challenged to get in the habit of learning to learn. Students are expected to explore, experiment, experience with trial and error, be resourceful, seek guidance, work collaboratively, and so on, to complete their daily assignments. They actively participate in solving the challenges they are presented with each day.

  4. We believe in:

    • Shaping Attitude by drawing out the passion of learning in the student
    • Building Aptitude by coaching them to think critically in their approach to create their tech product
    • Developing Skills using open source, full stack technologies with online resources to complement their learning, revision and references continuously.
