We are pleased to welcome the National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore’s flagship university, to the edX global partner community. NUS is unique in that it works closely with industry, governments and academic to inform its multidisciplinary approach to education and research, with a heavy focus on entrepreneurship.
NUS’ first offering on edX will be a Professional Certificate program in Spatial Computing Thinking. Professional Certificate programs are a series of courses designed by industry leaders and top universities to build and enhance critical professional skills needed to succeed in today’s most in-demand fields. This program consists of four courses that will cover the theoretical knowledge and practical skills for creating computational procedures for complex 3D spatial data sets. The first course, Procedural Modeling, is now open for enrollment and starts on January 20.
NUS has already kicked off our partnership with an innovative offering for their on-campus students and staff. The initiative, Design Your Own Module (DYOM), allows students to access over 2,000 courses on edX and take them to fulfill their Unrestricted Elective modules. Staff also have access to the courses as an option to acquire new knowledge and skills.
NUS will offer additional programs and courses in the future. Currently, there are courses in intercultural communication, data science and US-China relations planned. edX and NUS have the shared goal of expanding global access to education, including learning in topics such as technology, business and the humanities. These subject areas are key to helping learners succeed in the workplace, and it is why we’re particularly excited to launch this Professional Certificate program.
Please join me in welcoming the National University of Singapore to edX.
