Established in 2000 after 7 years under the nurturing wings of the then Temasek Information Technology & Applied Science School (ITAS), the School has now evolved to become an institution that engages innovative ways to train and educate school leavers and the workforce, and carves niche applied research areas that benefit students, industries and the community. From its humble offering of the Food Science & Nutrition diploma first conducted in July 1995 at the Portsdown Road Campus, the School now offers 5 full-time diplomas in response to the dynamic changes in the vibrant food, F&B, chemical and life sciences industries.


In addition to full-time courses, the School also offers an array of part-time diploma and certificate courses for adult learners as well as customized short courses to meet the specialized needs of the industry.
