Welcome to the School of Computing and Information Systems (SCIS) at Singapore Management University!

Established in 2003, SCIS is a dynamic school that is constantly seeking to lift our education and research to a higher level. We take pride in our students, as we see them learning and maturing in our transformative environment and going on to establish fulfilling careers and contribute back to society.

SCIS offers a suite of exciting education programs. Our BSc (IS): Information Systems major produces job-ready professionals who are versatile in applying emerging technologies to develop end-to-end IT solutions.

The BSc (IS): Smart-City Management and Technology major is a unique interdisciplinary programme that trains professionals in harmonizing social, economic, business, environmental and technology concerns to develop smart city solutions.

Our BSc (Computer Science) degree emphasises strong technical skills in translating scientific principles to usable computing technologies and solutions, as well as the management skills needed to navigate complex software development and system deployment concerns.

Offered in partnership with the SMU Yong Pung How School of Law, our BSc (Computing & Law) degree equips students with the skillsets to protect technology innovation, comply with pertinent legal and regulatory requirements, as well as manage the technology and business risks posed by innovation.

Our Master of IT in Business is a professional education program that puts technology in the context of business, and balances it with leadership, management and communication skills. The school also has research-intensive programs at the Master and Doctoral levels geared towards providing training for academic and industry careers.

We are passionate about our research. We aim for excellence both in fundamental contribution to academic knowledge, as well as in creating technology with practical impact. On our faculty are several world-class scholars and rising stars in their respective disciplines. Our research portfolio is well aligned with Singapore's national initiatives like Smart Nation, Cybersecurity and Urban Management, and includes a number of well-funded projects in our focus areas. SCIS regularly collaborates with many government agencies and leading industry players.

We are actively seeking like-minded students, researchers and educators to shape the future with us. I invite you to explore our website and discover more about us, and look forward to welcoming you to our school.
