From everyday conveniences such as mobile phones, computers and electric cars to industrial technologies such as power distribution, medical instruments and manufacturing, electrical engineers are practically needed everywhere. So if you want to be grounded in one of the most fundamental and flexible engineering fields, the Diploma in Electrical Engineering (EE) will be a wise choice.
At EE, we offer a highly flexible diploma with as many as eight specialisation options! Coupled with a broad-based foundation in electrical, electronic and computer engineering, you will be well-placed to pursue a wide range of careers.
In the first two years, you will have a good grasp of electrical, electronic and computer engineering. Modules covered include Electrical Technology, Sensors & Instrumentation, Microcontroller & Applications and Digital Systems & Applications.
In your final year, you have the choice of picking one of eight specialisation options. You will also get to put your skills and knowledge into practice with a six-month internship with industry leaders such as ST Aerospace and Power Grid or established universities such as Germany’s Bochum University of Applied Sciences. Or you can work on a design project to develop your very own products and patents.
Minor in Business Management
This Diploma offers an alternative pathway for those who prefer to read more business modules. In Year 2, you can sign up for our Minor in Business Management.
Taught by Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s School of Business & Accountancy, the Minor in Business Management modules cover topics such as financial management, marketing and entrepreneurship. In the final year, you will get to put your knowledge into practice while working on a project with business application. You will also take up a business management elective such as E-Business, Managing Service Operations, Supply Chain Management and Understanding Buyer Behaviour.
Electrical engineering graduates in Singapore enjoy one of the highest employment rates and starting salaries. You can also join the electricity consultancy and high-tech manufacturing industries as a sales and marketing engineer, maintenance engineer or facilities executive. Many EE graduates have also risen to managerial positions or have become entrepreneurs!
Upon graduation, you are also eligible to apply for an Electrical Technician Licence which will enable you to work in an electrical contracting business.
