Diploma in

Engineering Science


You’re passionate about engineering applications, but also love the sciences. You’re strong in both math and physics. You’re also keen to explore scientific research and discover new ways to solve real-world problems. You don’t have to settle on a compromise – how about honing all these interests through the Diploma in Engineering Science (ES)?

The unique ES diploma prepares you well for a wide range of degrees and careers in fields such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, as well as computer, electrical, electronic, and mechanical engineering, material and even medical science.

During the first two years, you will be equipped with a strong foundation in engineering and related domains such as mathematics, physics, applied science and research. You will attend distinguished guest lectures and go on industry visits. You may also be exposed to short stints with research establishments and institutes such as Nanyang Technological University (NTU), National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore University of Technology & Design (SUTD), and A*STAR.

In your second year, you may also get to visit top overseas universities such as Tokyo Metropolitan University (Japan), Tokyo Metropolitan College of Industrial Technology (Japan) or Nanjing University of Science & Technology (China). There, you will interact with students and professors, and be exposed to the latest developments in technology and innovation.

In the third year, you will be exposed to the skills and knowledge in emerging technologies in artificial intelligence and machine learning, and embark on a final-year project or R&D-oriented internship. You may have the opportunity to be attached to NUS, NTU, SUTD, a research institute, or Technology Centres, where you will be involved in projects supervised by university professors and researchers. You could also get a chance to work on a R&D-oriented internship with local startups and multinational companies, as well as an overseas internship. These projects and internships will cover a wide range of topics such as artificial intelligence, automotive vehicles, additive manufacturing, Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, biomedical engineering, green energy and material science.

Curriculum designed in consultation with NTU, NUS and SUTD. Undertake applied R&D projects at NTU and SUTD, and attachments at NUS research labs.
