Unique diploma that combines biological and chemical sciences with chemical engineering
Versatile curriculum with environmental and science components offers you an extra edge
Internationally recognised and the first diploma course to be fully accredited by the Institute of Chemical Engineers, UK
Research Track for students interested in a research-based career
Six-month internship at reputable companies such as Exxonmobil, Shell, GSK and Roche
Our Diploma in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering (CBE) is certainly broad-based. It covers such diverse fields as chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, environmental science, engineering and life sciences. You even get to learn how microorganisms and cells are grown in large scale bioreactors!
CBE offers you an impressive variety of career options. And if you opt for the Pharma & Biopharmaceutical Specialisation in your final year, you will be able to easily launch a career in the booming biopharmaceutical industry upon graduation.
In your final year, you can choose to go on a 24-week internship with companies such as ExxonMobil, Shell, Pfizer and GlaxoSmithKline. Alternatively, you can choose to undertake the research track which will introduce you to research concepts and methods followed by a research-based internship at renowned local or overseas research institutes.
You can join a wide range of industries, including chemical, petrochemical, biochemical, biotechnology, biomedical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, electronics, and environment-related companies.
You can become a technologist, project supervisor or assistant engineer in any process, design, control, operations or maintenance units. Or work as an R&D, pollution control or plant safety officer.
A recent graduate employment survey revealed that CBE graduates have one of the highest average starting salaries!
CBE grads are able to pursue a wide range of degrees offered by the National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Management University and the Singapore University of Technology and Design.
These include degree courses in chemical and biomolecular engineering, chemical engineering, environmental engineering, material sciences, chemistry, physics and biological sciences.
