You’re one step closer to fulfilling your dreams of building your own ship when you join our Diploma in Marine & Offshore Technology (MOT). We will train you in naval architecture and offshore technology, which are among the most soughtafter specialist skills in Singapore’s maritime industry.
With MOT, you will learn to design and build your own ship models, and test them in Singapore’s only towing tank located in our campus. Our strong emphasis on Design Thinking and Practice will give you an edge in creating innovative solutions for using clean energy, developing new materials and processes, as well as designing and building marine vessels and offshore structures.
Thanks to MOT’s strong ties with key industry players, such as the Association of Singapore Marine Industries (ASMI), Keppel Offshore & Marine and SembCorp Marine, you get to go on frequent study trips to gain industry exposure and receive in-depth training that will stand you in good stead in your career!
In the first two years, you will be grounded with strong fundamentals of engineering, together with naval architecture, marine engineering and offshore design technology. Enhanced internships have also been rolled out for MOT students. In your final year, you will intern at a host company in the marine and offshore industry for six months and apply the skills learnt at the workplace. You can also choose to major in one of the two specialisations in your final year – Design Option or Oil & Gas Option.
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. The modules, taught by our School of Business & Accountancy, include financial management, marketing and entrepreneurship. You will also get to work on a project with business application.
Analyse the hydrodynamics and structural performance of ships and oil rigs. Perform Marine & Offshore Design according to design thinking process using the latest Computer Aided Design (CAD) and simulation software.
Analyse and design offshore oil & gas and also subsea systems that are integral to the design and construction of offshore oil rigs.
Pursue a career in the design, marketing, commerce, survey, production, safety, human resource, and research and development areas of the marine and offshore industries.
As part of the SkillsFuture initiative, you can join the Earn and Learn Programme (ELP) and enrol in courses such as the Specialist Diploma in Marine Production and Specialist Diploma in Marine Design to get a head start in your career. These two specialist diplomas are work-study industry certification programmes where you will be matched with a company and undergo structured on-the-job training.
Accredited by the
Institute of Marine Engineering Science & Technology (UK), this diploma gives you the opportunity to improve your prospects by pursuing a related degree programme at a local or an overseas university.
Together with Newcastle University, the Singapore Institute of Technology offers you the chance to pursue a prestigious degree in Marine Engineering, Naval Architecture or Offshore Engineering – right in our NP campus!

YEAR 1 MODULES
YEAR 2 MODULES
YEAR 3 MODULES
This first-year module helps to give students a foundational introduction to their three-year diploma course curriculum and how it prepares them for industry. It will help them to embark on their three-year course with the end in mind, through guided reflection of their personal characteristics, and producing an overall game plan for their future education and career goals. The module aims to deepen students’ commitment to the sector that the course prepares them for.
The module prepares students to write effective cover letters and resumes. Preparation and enhancement of portfolio to meet professional standard as well as development of presentation skills, and improvement of job-seeking techniques will also be covered in the module.
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.
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.
This cluster is specially designed to strengthen anddeepen the technical knowledge and skills of students in applying design software skill to solve challenging engineering design problems. Talented students will be invited to join the programme. The programme will equip students with strong engineering problem solving skills and prepare them to participate in World Skill Singapore (WSS) Competition and related events.
Fundamental Mechanical CADThis module is a practice-oriented module designed to give students strong fundamentals in using AutoDesk Inventor as Computer Aided Design tool in solving engineering design problems. This module covers sketching, 3-D solid modelling concepts and techniques.
Advanced Mechanical CAD This is a practice-oriented module designed to equip students with strong advanced software skills in modelling and solving engineering design problems. This module covers advanced CAD commands and engineering design principles. Topics include geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, assembly techniques and animation.
Mechanical CAD ProjectThis module is a project-based module designed to hone students’ knowledge and skill in solving complex engineering design problems. This module covers advanced engineering design concepts and assembly modelling techniques on a wide range of case studies and design projects.
This cluster equips students with knowledge and understanding of workplace hazards as well as control measures for minimising, preventing and managing safety and health risks in workplaces of diverse industrial sectors. The programme develops their capabilities in managing Workplace Safety & Health (WSH) issues related to engineering practices, and prepares them for a career as industrial safety coordinators or officers.
Workplace SafetyThis module equips students with the fundamental knowledge of workplace safety. Topics include spotting workplace hazards and various techniques used to control these hazards and minimise risk. In addition, students will learn the various methods that are deployed in the industry to ensure compliance with MOM legal requirements.
Workplace HealthThis module equips students with knowledge in occupational health. Topics include identification of workplace health hazards and their prevention, implications of industrial noise, chemical hazards, lighting, thermal environment, radiation, confined space, general ventilation, occupational diseases and occupational health management.
Workplace Safety Management & Risk ControlThis module introduces students to workplace safety management and risk control. Topics include managing WSH hazards and control measures, risk analysis, WSH policy, behavioural safety programmes, WSH legal issues and Work Injury Compensation Act, WSH incident investigation, WSH performance analysis and safety audit, safety education, training and communication.
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).
