A myriad of displays and demonstrations will be taking place, from AI demos all the way to “cooking classesand food science breakdowns involving ice cream. So, whether you’re stumped on what to pursue or want to find out more about your uni programme of choice, don’t miss out on SIT’s Open House this year.

Degree programmes with an Applied Learning approach

SIT’s approach to education is through Applied Learning, which is a marriage of academic knowledge and real-world applications. This is reflected in their Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) which is applicable for almost all their degree programmes.

Getting practical experience during uni means no more being lost on the first day on the job once you’re thrust into the working world. The IWSP allows students to get a taste of industry practices first-hand, beyond classroom lessons. This gives students an idea of what daily life is like in their industry of choice.

Head to the SIT Open House to get in-depth breakdowns of how Applied Learning works, and how it will benefit you in your desired field of study.

Artificial Intelligence initiatives

With the world moving towards being automated and self-sustaining, Artificial Intelligence might just change our lives in the near future. In response to this wave, SIT has employed the help of the “DeepRacer” to aid our learning of this growing technological advance. TL;DR – it’s a cloud-based 3D racer that learns by itself.

The DeepRacer track will be introduced to programmes such as Applied Computing in Fintech, Applied Artificial Intelligence, Digital Supply Chain, Information Security, and Software Engineering. The DeepRacer supplements learning for students for topics such as Reinforcement Learning, Machine Learning, and Autonomous Driving.

For those interested in Health & Social Sciences, you’ll be able to view anatomical body models up close, as well as explore a digital Anatomage table that displays the full human body structure.

In addition to that, there will be an Occupational Therapy practice session where you can experience the life of a therapist in the fields of neuroscience, anatomy, and biomechanics.

Food Technology & Food Business Management

Let’s set the scene – you walk over to your freezer to get your favourite pint of ice cream, only to find out that there are ice crystals all over it. This is actually called Freezer Burn, and it occurs when the water from the ice cream evaporates and refreezes on the ice cream’s surface.

At the Open House, all your crystally ice cream issues will be addressed during a talk, so you won’t have to worry about those pesky ice crystals again. And to top it all off, chefs from the Culinary Institute of America will be present on both days to share recipes for pasta dishes. After this demonstration, you better not still be eating cup noodles for dinner.

These demos will ignite the hunger of potential students studying food, be it Food Technology or Food Business Management with a specialisation in culinary arts. But even if you’ve set your sights on other degree programmes, the info is still pretty nifty to have on hand.
