Student Life

An e-Lifestyle

A campus-wide IT network harnesses the latest technology for teaching, learning and administrative support. TP has embarked on an initiative to realise Singapore’s Public Service 21 (PS21) vision of service excellence through the delivery of “one-stop, non-stop” electronic services to students, staff, industry partners and the public.

This initiative, known as ePoly, allows staff and students to have a personalised web space where almost every service and learning resource can be accessed from within and outside the campus.

Among the services available now are a personalised timetable and an online storage space that can be accessed anywhere. You can also update your personal particulars, check your examination results and enrol for courses online.

TP students are also able to read news and announcements, access information resources stored in TP’s library, submit work assignments from home, study online, attend virtual tutorials and group discussions, and chat online with lecturers.

These are all part of the growing e-lifestyle for you at TP.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Temasek Polytechnic strives to provide a conducive environment for students to acquire the skills and knowledge to meet the demands of the world of work.

Towards this end, all students are required to bring their own notebooks for lessons. They will be able to:

  • access e-resources such as e-text books, videos, and educational apps;
  • conduct online research and work on their assignments using their own devices;
  • use their own devices in school and at home, thus enjoying convenience and accessibility to course-specific software whenever feasible;  and
  • contribute towards a greener environment.

You may refer to the given link: https://www.tp.edu.sg/BYOD-Specs for the required technical specifications for notebooks, list of supported Antivirus software and commonly used freeware. If you already own a notebook, you are not required to purchase a new one (subject to your notebook meeting the minimum specifications required for your course).

For Part-time students, you may refer to the given link: https://www.tp.edu.sg/CET-BYOD-Specs for the required technical specifications for notebooks and the list of supported Antivirus software.

Students who are faced with any problem, are encouraged to visit TP’s IT Service Management Centre (East Wing Building, Blk 1A, Level 4) which will be able to provide one-stop service.

The operating hours of the Centre are from Mondays to Fridays, 8.30am – 9.30pm (IT support is not available after 6pm during the vacation and term break period). You may also contact the Centre at 6780 5933 during their operating hours.

Financial assistance schemes for the purchase of notebooks are available for eligible enrolled full-time diploma students and Polytechnic Foundation Programme (PFP) students. More information on BYOD Financial Assistance Scheme can be found at http://www.tp.edu.sg/BYOD-Financial
