  • English Language Express*

    (Credit Units - NA)

    English Language Express aims to give you a better grounding in the English Language and to strengthen the written and oral communications skills that you will need in your academic and professional careers. You will be engaged in writing, reading, listening and speaking activities that will develop your ability to speak and write grammatically, coherently and clearly. You will also hone your reading and listening comprehension skills.

  • Innovation Made Possible^

    (3 Credit Units)
* This module is only offered to students who are weaker in the English Language.

^ Interdisciplinary Studies (IS) modules account for 13 credit units of the diploma curriculum. They include modules in communication, innovation and world issues, as well as an interdisciplinary project. By bringing students from diverse diplomas together, the interdisciplinary project fosters collaboration to explore and propose solutions for real-world problems. IS aims to develop students to be agile and self-directed learners, ready for the future workplace.

Year 2

  • Integrated Real-world Project 3

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module provides students with real world design thinking and problem solving skills and knowledge. Students will work in group to come out problem statement (mission requirement) and apply the knowledge learnt in the semester to design and make a ship model by using software. Project competition will be carried out to assess the ship’s performance.

  • Marine Design Drafting

    (3 Credit Units)

    The module aims to provide students with fundamental training in the principles and practices of the international graphic language for engineering that is based on the International Standard Organization (ISO) and the Singapore Standards (SS) guidelines. The basic principles of ship construction will be introduced. Various teaching & learning methodology will be applied in creating design and drafting on marine design. Students will learn common engineering drafting tool AutoCAD to produce typical design drawings.

  • Marine & Offshore Technology

    (3 Credit Units)

    This module provides students with a basic understanding of the current concepts of marine and offshore technology. These include fundamentals of types and features of ship and offshore structure. Knowledge of offshore drilling, working principles of topside production modules, field layout, subsea modules and LNG technology and production chain will be introduced.

  • Naval Architecture 1

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module introduces the world of marine & offshore technology and aims to provide students with the basic principles of marine hydrostatics, which include intact stability, trim and damage stability. Principles and analysis of centroids on areas, volumes and mass for various types of floating platforms and ships would be covered to enable the learning of marine hydrostatics.

  • Strength of Materials

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module aims to provide students with the foundational knowledge of strength of materials with an emphasis on applications and problem solving. Topics include simple stresses and strains, torsion in shaft, shear force and bending moment diagrams, stresses in beams, combined stresses and experimental stress analysis.

Year 3

  • Integrated Real-world Project 5

    (3 Credit Units)

    The module will equip students with project design, planning and implementation knowledge through projects assigned through the modules. Students will apply their knowledge to solve a real problem related to the marine industry. The module takes students through the entire project cycle. Students carry out project work in groups. Performance of the students is assessed on a continuous basis.

    This module will also imbue in students a sense of civic consciousness in the context of engineering and sustainability. It will develop students’ competencies in sustainable development, raise their awareness of sustainability in the context of society and the environment, and appreciate the impact engineering solutions may have on the environment.
