Course Overview

Every business today requires software application development and support. As business opportunities continue to expand, the demand for newer and more advanced applications grows exponentially. Are companies adequately prepared to manage this surge in demand?


Recognizing the need for a comprehensive solution, the Specialist Diploma in Low-Code App Development for Business has been introduced as the first of its kind in Singapore. Low-Code is a software development approach which enables non-tech individuals to create applications using a graphical interface. Rather than writing thousands of lines of complex code and syntax, Low-Code enables learners to drag and drop visual models to create complete applications with modern user interfaces, integrations, data, and logic. Moreover, this program also equips learners with the knowledge and skills to harness the power of AI tools in their application development journey.
