Course Structure and Pathways

Two Tracks
We have designed two tracks to cater to participants with different learning preferences.

​Participants who prefer to make use of programming can go for the modules under the Programming Track while participants who prefer to make use of readily available tools can embark on modules under the Non-Programming Track.

For participants who do not possess a programming background, you may also take on a Bridging pathway towards the Programming Track.
