 Diploma in Electrical Engineering (N43) 


  • Local and overseas internships with ST Aerospace, ST Electronics, Resorts World Sentosa and Germany’s Bochum University of Applied Sciences

  • Broad-based foundation in electrical, electronic and computer engineering

  • Eight specialisation options that cater to diverse interests

  • A Minor in Business Management offers more exciting career and degree opportunities


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.

This diploma is recognised by leading universities both locally and abroad. You may be granted credit exemptions or direct entry into the second or third year of related engineering courses at:

• National University of Singapore
• Nanyang Technological University
• Singapore Institute of Technology
• Singapore University of Technology and Design
• University of Manchester (UK)
• University of Southampton (UK)
• University of Sheffield (UK)
• University of New South Wales (Australia)
• Queensland University of Technology (Australia)

You can also apply for non-engineering degree courses. The Minor in Business Management will give you a head-start when applying for such courses.

Here are more details on the degree options and advanced standing at the universities - locally and overseas.

To be eligible for consideration, candidates must have the following GCE ‘O’ Level examination (or equivalent) results.

The Diploma Plus Programme (DPP) is designed to provide students with proficiency in a selected domain area, either to broaden or deepen a student’s knowledge/skills in his/her main discipline of study, or to equip a student with additional professional knowledge that would better prepare him/her for further study or increase their employability. Students can select elective modules from a wide range of clusters to obtain their Diploma Plus Certificate. DPP is optional and it will not affect the graduating requirement for the award of a diploma.

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.
