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.
25%ES freshmen received the
NP Engineering Scholarship and Merit Award
7ES students received the
A*STAR Science Award (Poly) in 2017 which provides R&D internship opportunities at A*STAR’s research institutes
80%of ES graduates offered admission in prestigious local and overseas universities
If you’re looking for an Engineering diploma that attracts the brightest minds, look no further!
Automation & Mechatronic Systems Learn 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 Engineering Be exposed to the different kinds of mechanical systems, and learn about their working principles and control.
Armed with an ES diploma, you will enjoy good career
prospects in areas such as research & development,
product design and development, and manufacturing
and services. Careers you can pursue include design
engineer, automation engineer, process engineer,
systems engineer and software engineer
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:
About 80 per cent of our graduates were offered
admission to various local and overseas universities.
You must also fulfil the aggregate computation
* 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.
