Dear BSc (IS) Students,

Congratulations on your acceptance to the School of Information Systems (SIS). This journey at SIS will definitely transform you and equip you to thrive and succeed in the ever changing real-world. And before you realise it, you will graduate with an SMU Bachelor of Science (Information Systems).

The School is a great place to study IT and Information Systems because of the way we bring together the academic depth with real-world business, management, government and social needs. Our BSc (IS) is internationally recognized for successfully integrating software applications with people, and with business and domain settings.

Our students tell us that the strength of SIS is the culture of learning which you experience everyday through strong peer support, peer-to-peer learning, seniors helping juniors, and faculty and staff helping students. Talk to any of our existing students, or to our alumni. Ask them about the highly collaborative learning environment within SMU SIS. You will soon find out why our students so strongly emphasize the close family bond within SMU SIS, and how this closely connected community enables an open culture of collaboration that has proven to be so inspiring to our undergraduates.

SIS is deeply involved in strategic national initiatives such as SMART Nation; Analytics for Business, Consumer & Social Insights; Cyber Security & Data Privacy, Urban Management & Sustainability, Ageing-in-Place, and Financial Services Technology (FinTech). Our students gain from our close ties with national agencies and leading industry players, who work with us on these initiatives. Our students also gain through exposure to all of our R & D centres and labs in these areas. These strong linkages directly help you with abundant opportunities for internships and full-time employment.

Our Singapore economy, as well as the regional and global landscape is rapidly changing. By coming to SMU SIS, you can harness these rapid changes in how we live, learn, play and work to become your opportunities. We equip you and prepare you for these changes, and to be a change agent.

We, the SIS family of faculty, staff and students welcome you into our community. We have high expectations of your ability and desire to contribute to SIS, to the greater SMU community, and to the real-world.
