You’re passionate about engineering applications, but also love the sciences. You’re strong in both math and physics. You’re also keen to explore scientific research and discover new ways to solve real-world problems. You don’t have to settle on a compromise – why not let us hone all these interests through the Diploma in Engineering Science (ES)?
With a curriculum designed in collaboration with Nanyang Technological University (NTU), ES prepares you well for a wide range of careers and degrees in engineering fields such as aerospace, nanotechnology, computer, electrical, electronic and mechanical as well as material science.
During the first two years, you will be equipped with a strong foundation in engineering and related domains such as mathematics, physics, applied science and research. You will attend distinguished guest lectures and go on industry visits. You may also be exposed to short stints with research establishments and institutes such as NTU and A*STAR. In your second year, you may also get to visit top overseas universities such as Tokyo Metropolitan University (Japan), Tokyo Metropolitan College of Industrial Technology (Japan) and Technische Universität Berlin (Germany). There, you will interact with students and professors, and be exposed to the latest developments in technology and innovation.In the third year, you will embark on your final-year project and be exposed to your chosen specialisation that will anchor your learning in one of the 3 engineering fields: Automation & Mechatronic Systems, Electrical & Electronic Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. You may have the opportunity to spend about four days a week either in Nanyang Technological University (NTU), National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore University of Technology & Design (SUTD) or a research institute where you will be involved in projects supervised by university professors/researchers. These projects will cover a wide range of topics such as aerospace, robotics, biomedical engineering, green energy, laser technology and material science.
You will also get to choose a specialisation that will anchor your learning in one of the core disciplines of engineering.
Specialisation OptionsAutomation & Mechatronic SystemsLearn about the integration of mechanical and electronic systems – their modelling and control – and study emerging mechatronics technologies.Electrical & Electronic Engineering Discover more about the different types of circuit design, testing and control systems used for electrical and electronics applications.Mechanical EngineeringBe exposed to the different kinds of mechanical systems, and learn about their working principles and control.NP Engineering ScholarshipUp to one in three ES students will be offered the prestigious NP Engineering Scholarship! This bond-free scholarship covers tuition fees for three years and includes a notebook allowance of $1,200. Scholars will get to join The Christieara Programme and a customised engineering talent development programme.
Both NTU and NUS have accredited ES for a wide range of their degree programmes. With your strong foundation as an ES graduate, you can also apply for a wide range of degree programmes offered by overseas universities. For example, overseas universities that offer degrees in engineering science include:
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.
YEAR 1 MODULES
This module provides a foundation in electricity to prepare students for more specialised subjects. It deals with the basic concepts of electrical circuits and the methods used to analyse them. The module emphasises the understanding of the basic electrical circuit laws (Ohm’s Law, Kirchhoff’s Voltage and Current Laws) and network theorems, and their application to electrical network analysis. Topics covered include fundamentals of electricity, network theorems, capacitance, electromagnetic induction and inductance, AC circuit theory and transformer fundamentals.
YEAR 2 MODULES
YEAR 3 MODULES
In this module, students will work together in teams of two to design and implement a project that exposes them to engineering skills as well as teamwork, over a period of one semester. Students are required to demonstrate their ability and resourcefulness in implementing their selected project design solution. The scope of work includes printed circuit board fabrication, wiring, assembly and testing of the final prototype.
The aim of the module is to provide the students with a platform to keep abreast with recent advances and developments in the newly emerging areas of technology, as well as actual and potential applications to industrial and factory automation. Topics include Micro-electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS), Nanotechnology, Photonics, and wireless & web-enabled automation systems.
You can opt to take the Diploma Plus Programme (DPP) - Certificate in Advanced Engineering Mathematics (CAEM). It aims to strengthen your mathematical foundation and better prepares you for university studies.
