UniSIM’s Executive Master Programme in Open Source Software

Starting in January 2009, the SIM University (UniSIM) in partnership with RedHat, Inc., will be offering an Executive Master Programme in Open Source Software. UniSIM is Singapore’s “first and only privately-funded university focusing on the upgrading and learning needs of working professionals and adult learners”.

Details of the programme:

  • The UniSIM Open Source Software Management Programme will commence in January 2009 and will lead to dual qualifications: the Executive Graduate Diploma and the Executive Master.
  • Participants will graduate with the globally recognised and much sought after Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) certification and Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) certification. Graduates with Red Hat certifications will be well placed to work in any OSS environment, not limited to Red Hat or Red Hat’s clients.
  • Each intake will be limited to 30 students to accommodate the intensive practical and robust nature of the programme. The Executive Master programme is open to all diploma or degree holders and applicants without the Red Hat Certified Technician (RHCT) certification and Open Source background will be required to take bridging courses prior to embarking on the programme. The course fee for the Executive Master programme is $27,000 (excluding bridging courses). For more information please see www.unisim.edu.sg.
  • Starting from January 2009, students of UniSIM’s existing Information Communication and Technology (ICT) undergraduate programme can also take selected Red Hat Academy courses as part of their degree programme and become Red Hat Certified Engineers (RHCE).

It’s good to see this type of educational programme from a respected institution of higher learning, but offering a vendor-focused curriculum is – in our opinion, is not the best option. UniSIM could have partnered with the Linux Professional Institute to offer a step-wise, vendor-neutral course of study. The Linux Professional Institute’s certification programme does a better job of preparing Linux professional for success in a society that is becoming more aware of the benefits of open source software.
