and climate change is set to bring about the need
to increase water supplies. Be at the frontline to
combat environmental challenges when you join the
Diploma in Environmental & Water Technology (EWT).
Jointly developed with the PUB, this diploma will
equip you with a firm grounding in the key areas of
water technology, waste management and resource
conservation, as well as pollution monitoring and
In your first year, you will be introduced to basic
concepts of environmental science, engineering
and technology with modules such as Noise
Monitoring & Control, Computer Aided Design
and Hydraulics. From the second year onwards,
you will learn in-depth modules in various aspects
of environmental engineering and water technology,
such as air and water quality monitoring & control.
In your final year, you will work on an environmental
innovation & research project and go on a fourmonth
internship. You can opt for hands-on learning
opportunities at our Centre of Innovation in
Environmental and Water Technology (COI-EWT) and
work alongside research engineers and scientists on
industry-based projects. All EWT students have the
chance to learn about sustainable environmental
practices by participating in an enhanced study
trip to destinations such as South Korea, Taiwan
or Masdar City in Abu Dhabi.
With additional Workforce Skills Qualification (WSQ)
Certificates in Noise Monitoring, Industrial Noise
Control and Risk Management, you can look forward
to better job prospects in the industry.
You will be ready for careers in government agencies,
multinational corporations, university laboratories
and research institutes. Seek employment as an
environmental technologist, assistant engineer,
research officer, water treatment specialist and
many more. Additional WSQ certificates will also
qualify you for jobs such as a Noise Monitoring
Officer or Noise Control Officer.
Ho Jia Le’s passion for the environment started way back in primary school and was evident in some of his school projects. For his final-year project, Jia Le developed a solarpowered water drone to monitor water quality and prevent mass fish deaths.
