Common Engineering Programme


Interested in the world of Engineering but unsure about what course to go for? With the Common Engineering Programme (CEP), you will have more time to explore the many fields of engineering instead of deciding on a specific discipline straight away. During the first semester, you’ll go on our unique Induction Programme to gain real-world experience through industry visits and dialogues, and receive career guidance to help you make a more informed decision in your course selection.

You will also build a broad-based foundation in mechanical, electronic and electrical engineering, as well as mathematics and programming. Apply the knowledge that you’ve learnt by working on an integrated real-world project. You’ll get to choose either the Electrical & Electronic Track or Mechanical Track after your first semester, and choose a specific engineering diploma* to major in by the end of your first year. Upon graduation, you will receive the same diploma as your peers who have enrolled for a particular course right from the start.
