Gen Infiniti Academy's 2019 In A Nutshell

2019 has truly been an interesting and fun-filled year for Gen Infiniti Academy! Thanks to your support, we've grown so much this year. Here are some incredible things that have happened in 2019!


Learner Achievements and Engagement

At the start of the year, we were just finding our footing as a course provider. Our courses were newly launched - the Unity Certified Associate course launched in late Oct 2018, while the Wiley Certified Data Analyst course launched in Dec 2018 - and we had less than 100 students.


We currently have more than 700 students and graduates in both courses.


At our very first Graduation Ceremony, which was graced by Professor Yaacob Ibrahim, we celebrated our students' achievements; for instance, top scorers in our Unity Certified Associate course were awarded prizes.


Throughout the year, we also had different initiatives for our learners, mainly:

For Unity Certified Associates:

- Opportunities to showcase their games on our website (this is open to all future students as well!)

- Mentorship programme to create and monetise their own games


For Wiley Certified Data Analysts:

- Regular Challenge Questions, where students can win prizes if they answer questions correctly

- Capstone projects for students to practise their data analytics skills


For both:

- Opportunities to work with and for our corporate partners (when available)

We also sponsored the SUTD's Data Analytics Track Award for their top Information Systems Technology and Design student in 2019.



Raising Awareness for Tech Skills

We focused on 2 aspects: Corporate and Public.

For the public, we planned 2 types of outreach events for data analytics and game development: workshops and booths. In 2019, we conducted 26 workshops for more than 1,000 attendees. These focused on data analytics and its benefits to different industries, or game development and how you can make and monetise your own game. To ensure maximum outreach, we also collaborated with the National Library Board and SAFRA for some of these workshops.
