Diploma in

Automation & Mechatronic Systems


Imagine stepping out of your smart home, taking a selfdriving vehicle to your favourite restaurant, and geting served by a robotic waitress. The field of automation is steadily growing and finding its way into every home, company and industry. If you want to engineer the next generation of smart machines, the Diploma in Automation & Mechatronic Systems [AMS] is your ideal choice.

AMS prepares students for exciting careers in diverse sectors ranging from precision engineering, aerospace, electronics, energy and chemical, food manufacturing, marine & offshore and sea transport. You will learn to use emerging skills in robotics and automation, design thinking, Internet of Things (IoT) and data analytics to develop high-tech solutions for consumer products and industrial applications. What’s more, AMS’s emphasis on project-based learning, design thinking and experiential learning will give you an edge in developing applications of industrial robots, autonomous vehicles, modular production systems (MPS) and smart sensor technology.

In the first two years, you will build a strong foundation in the various disciplines of engineering – electrical, electronics, mechanical and programming. You will also learn practical skills in Computer-Aided Design and development of control software for smart devices and automated lines.

​In your third year, you will learn how to control industrial robots and build an autonomous vehicle. You will also go on a six-month internship with companies such as ST Land Systems, PSA Singapore, Keppel Offshore & Marine and A*STAR. Or you can choose to work on a final-year project to design and develop a high-tech product prototype. You will also get to work on an Integrated Real-world Project in every semester. These projects will develop your critical thinking, problem-solving and technical skills
