ST (p H8) and ZB (p 2) reported that the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) will be launching a new School of Design and Media next year. It will be housed in ITE College Central and will offer programmes that allow students to design spacecraft, learn animation and study visual effects and motion graphics. The report carried SMS’ comments at the ITE graduation ceremony held at the National University of Singapore yesterday, “The new school will focus on programmes that will develop creative talents for Singapore’s design and media sectors.” SMS added that the courses will help ITE keep up with changes in the economy, offering students skills that will come in handy as the digital entertainment industry expands.
