SIT holds groundbreaking for satellite campus at Republic Polytechnic

The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) held its fifth and final groundbreaking ceremony Monday at Republic Polytechnic (RP) for its satellite campuses.

It also announced its first degree programme to be conducted at RP which will be a computing science course in partnership with the University of Glasgow.

The course, which will cater to the demand for workers in the computing science industry, will start in September this year. The nine-storey building in Woodlands will house 660 students, and its first intake of students will share RP's facilities until the building is completed in 2014. The SIT has a satellite campus at all five polytechnics.
