With solar technology as a key focus in CEM, you will get hands-on training at our Solar Technology Centre. Here, you will work on a solar power system to generate electricity. You may also be involved in gathering and analysing data for the national Clean Energy Research & Testbedding (CERT) programme.
In your first year, you will acquire a firm foundation in electrical and electronic engineering and a good understanding of how clean energy will contribute to a more sustainable environment.
In your second year, you will work on clean energy mini projects while continuing to hone your knowledge in engineering technology. You will also explore alternative sources of energy such as wind, hydro and fuel cell technologies. The course also covers modules such as Photovoltaic (PV) & Cell Fabrication Technology that teaches you to “grow” PV cells, install PV systems and measure cell efficiency.
You will also get the chance to put your skills and knowledge into practice through a six-month internship, either locally or abroad. Our industry partners that provide internship learning opportunities include Siloso Beach Resort, Marina Bay Sands, Renewable Energy Corporation (REC), Phoenix Solar, Kamtex Solar, DNV CTC, SMART@NUS, A*STAR and TÜV SÜD PSB.
You can also become an entrepreneur and add to the growing clean energy industry by coming up with new clean energy solutions!
Here are more details on the degree options and advanced standing at the universities - locally and overseas.
You must also fulfil the aggregate computation requirements.
*Candidates with English as a second language must have attained a minimum grade of 6.
Candidates with hearing deficiency or severe vision deficiency should not apply for the course. Those with colour vision deficiency may be considered, subject to an in-house test.

Students can choose the DPP clusters from the range listed below. The offer of a DPP cluster is subject to the condition that the minimum class size is met and based on available vacancies.
Designed in collaboration with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, National University of Singapore (NUS), this cluster helps to prepare students for university-level physics modules. The syllabi are based on the first-year physic curricula in NUS. The three modules in the cluster enhance the students' knowledge and bridge the gaps to university physics modules.
Foundational PhysicsThis module covers the fundamental knowledge in units and measurement, mechanics, thermodynamics and oscillation.
Classical PhysicsThis module covers the remaining topics of classical physics at the undergraduate level. The topics are dynamics, gravitation, thermodynamics and electromagnetism. For the last topic, the focus is more on the theoretical fundamentals, as opposed to the applied aspect found in the typical diploma-level module.
Modern PhysicsThis module covers modern physical concepts that include topics such as atomic structure, quantum concept, wave-particle duality, nuclear physics and radioactivity. Additionally, the study of the applications of modern physics lets the student realise its practical usefulness.
This cluster aims at providing students with the relevant knowledge and skills in the areas of precision electrical measurement, calibration and electrical system control. It also aims to provide students with the basic understanding of power quality.
Electrical Calibration & MeasurementStudents are introduced to the theories and practices in metrology and calibrations. This includes precision electrical measurements and the process of selecting and setting up instruments as well as precautionary measures to obtain the best possible measurement results. Students will also learn about the characteristics of instruments, such as the digital multimeter, counter and oscilloscope.
Lighting Technology & ControlThis module provides a broad knowledge of lighting in commercial, industrial, residential and theatrical productions. Students will gain a comprehensive overview of the science of lighting design as well as the technical knowledge of lighting in different environments.
Fundamentals of Power QualityThis module introduces the various technical and economic issues of power quality. Topics covered include power interruptions, voltage sags, transient over-voltage, voltage regulation, harmonics, filtering and common grounding problems. Students will also learn about the impact of power quality on sensitive equipment, international standards on power quality, power quality monitoring, and the methods used to mitigate power quality problems.
Sensors & Instrumentation (For CEM students)The module provides students with graphical programming skills using LabVIEW and the knowledge to develop virtual instrumentation systems. Students learn the concept of virtual instrumentation, sensor technologies, data acquisition devices, and computer interfaces such as RS232, GPIB and USB.
This cluster equips students with knowledge and practical training in the areas of electrical control wiring systems. Students will also acquire skills in programming and designing Programmable Logic Controllers for industrial applications. It aims to train students to compete in the World Skills Singapore Competition (Industrial Control Category).
Electrical Control and WiringThis module aims to provide students with knowledge and practical training in electrical control wiring system. Students will learn to read and interpret the circuit diagrams and wiring of control panels. The training will include mounting and wiring of control panels, PVC conduits, flexible conduits, connectors, junction boxes, PLC and other electrical components, and termination and numbering of cables according to layout diagrams.
Control Circuit Design & TroubleshootingStudents will learn the IEC Standards and symbols for Power Control and Protection components including relays, contactors, alarm and signal indicators, timers, limit switches, proximity sensors,photosensors, thermostats, protective devices, and motors. Students will also learn how to troubleshoot and locate faults on test panel within an allocated time.
Advanced Programming for Programmable Logic ControllerStudents will learn to program and design Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and learn about their industrial applications. Programming of PLC on projects involve digital I/O, analogue I/O, timers, counters, and internal registers. Students will also learn how to simulate, test the PLC program, and interface of the PLC with inverter, touch screen, sensors, switches, indicating lights, motors starters and other I/O devices.
This cluster is designed for engineering students who wish to strengthen their mathematical foundation for university studies. The syllabus is based on the ‘A’ Level H2 Pure Mathematics syllabus. In consultation with NUS, NP graduates who have successfully completed the revised CAEM will be granted exemption from the NUS’ MA1301 Proficiency Test.
Advanced Engineering Mathematics 1Students will learn topics such as functions and graphs, sequence and series and vectors.
Advanced Engineering Mathematics 2Students will learn topics such as trigonometry, plane analytic geometry, complex numbers and matrices.
Advanced Engineering Mathematics 3Students will learn topics such as differentiation and applications, integration and applications, differential equations, sequences and series (e.g. Power series, Taylor series, Fourier series).
