Diploma in

Env​ironmental & ​Water Technology


Rapid climate change and a growing world population can pose environmental challenges. Be at the forefront of developing sustainable environmental solutions when you join the Diploma in Environmental & Water Technology (EWT). Jointly developed with PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency, this diploma will equip you with a firm grounding in the key areas of water technology, waste management and resource conservation, as well as pollution monitoring and control.

In your first year, you will be introduced to basic concepts of environmental science, engineering and technology with modules such as Fundamental of Engineering Principles, Environmental Microbiology & Biotechnology and Hydraulics. You will also learn basic data analysis and technical drawing skills in the module Data Analytics & Drafting. From the second year onwards, you will learn in-depth modules in various aspects of environmental engineering and water technology, such as air and water quality monitoring & control.

In your final year, you will work on an environmental innovation & research project and go on a sixmonth internship. You can opt for hands-on learning opportunities at our Environmental and Water Technology Centre of Innovation (EWTCOI) and work alongside research engineers and scientists on industry-based projects.

With additional Workforce Skills Qualification (WSQ) Certificates in Noise Monitoring, Industrial Noise Control and Risk Management, you can look forward to better job prospects in the industry.
