​The SkillsFuture national movement plays an important role in charting the nation’s next phase of development towards an advanced economy and inclusive society. Every Singaporean is empowered to own a better future with skills mastery and lifelong learning, both for professional development and personal enrichment. Through PaCE College, NTU aims to better serve the local workforce in their professional development and lifelong learning journey by enabling them to update their knowledge and upgrade their skills.

The new SkillsFuture Series is an initiative by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) to help equip working adults with specific skills sets to meet changing job demands that provide funding support towards your course fees. There are currently eight emerging areas which SSG has selected under the SkillsFuture Series. They are namely: (i) data analytics, (ii) finance, (iii) tech-enabled services, (iv) digital media, (v) cyber security, (vi) entrepreneurship, (vii) advanced manufacturing, and (viii) urban solutions.

PaCE College handles the management and administration of NTU’s Part-time Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng) Degree programmes. In addition, PaCE College offers selected skills-based modular courses drawn from NTU’s existing degree programs. These modular courses can be taken individually on its own or as part of a specialist certificate (comprising typically 3 or more interrelated undergraduate courses in a specialized area) or a graduate certificate (comprising typically 3 or more interrelated graduate courses in a specialized area). All the modules can be taken individually for academic credit and are stackable towards the respective specialist certificate or full degree if they subsequently qualify and are admitted into the respective degree programs.

Besides credit-bearing courses, PaCE College also offers professional and personal development short courses, in-house training, executive programmes and summer programmes. Professional development courses pre-qualified by professional bodies such as the Professional Engineers’ Board and the Singapore Medical Association are awarded with PDU and CME credits respectively.

PaCE College also offers courses under the National Silver Academy initiative. The Silver Academy was set up by the Ministry of Health to cater to the learning needs of seniors and elderly retirees who may wish to undertake studies for enrichment and personal fulfilment. Their perspectives and wealth of life experiences will enrich classroom deliberations and benefit our undergraduate students.
