Industry Advisory Committees

The Industry Advisory Committee (IAC) comprises practising professionals from industry and government. Members of the committee meet regularly with UON Singapore academic staff to review our degrees and discuss improvements.

A key aim of the committee is to inform UON Singapore of current professional practices and alert academics to emerging trends in the workplace. This ensures our course content, professional practices, laboratory equipment and software meets the latest industry standards.
