What You'll Learn

Year 1

Year 2


  • Integrated Real-world Project 4

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module aims to integrate the knowledge learnt in the semester, deepen the skills in the previous semester and apply to a real-world project. Students will work alone to acquire relevant new skills in PCB (Printed Circuit Board) design, assembly, testing, trouble-shooting and reworking and also in teams to undertake the project development underpinned by the design thinking approach. On completion of the module, students will be able to apply the skills and develop confidence in tackling projects at the higher levels.

    The Career and Professional Preparation 2 will be incorporated to equip students with skills necessary to seek and secure work. They will also be equipped to communicate their personal brand in a positive way. As students sharpen their communication skills, they will also learn how to market themselves effectively.

  • Microcontroller & Interfacing

    (5 Credit Units)

    This module aims to equip students with a basic foundation in microcontroller and Embedded System. Students will acquire the necessary skills and knowledge through meaningful practical exercises and lectures/tutorials. The knowledge and skills that the students acquire in this module will enable them to implement a microcontroller based system.

  • Object-oriented Programming

    (5 Credit Units)

    This module introduces object-oriented programming to students who already have a foundation in procedural programming. It covers the fundamental concepts of object-oriented programming with introduction to basic web and database applications.

  • World Issues: A Singapore Perspective^

    (2 Credit Units)
  • ^​ 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.

  • Routing & Switching

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Students learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. By the end of this module, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with virtual LANs and interVLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.


  • Communication Systems

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module covers the fundamentals of analogue communication principles. Key topics covered in this module include components of a basic communication system, and factors that affect communication performance. The techniques of modulation and demodulation will be explained to allow students to understand and relate important concepts, including signal representation, performance measurements and system applications.

Year 3

  • 6-Month Internship (Local/Overseas)

    (20 Credit Units)

    6-month Internship is a module whereby students will be attached to sponsoring companies for a period of approximately 22 weeks. During their internships, they will undertake projects assigned by the companies or be involved in operations or maintenance-related work. Student internships may be undertaken locally or overseas.

  • or
  • 6-Month ​Final Year Project

    (20 Credit Units)

    In this module, students work full-time on their final-year projects for 20 weeks. Students will work on project titles ranging from system design and integration, research and development, computer applications and others. Students will also be given training in relevant technologies and skills at the beginning of the programme to build their knowledge. They learn and apply project management to enable them to complete their projects in time. They work closely with their supervisors on research, design, implementation, problem solving, testing, and analysis of results and modify the prototype to meet design requirements; and develop a good standard of technical skills in construction of systems or circuit boards and operating measuring instruments, equipment and tools. Project work cultivates a sense of positive work attitude, team spirit and co-operation among the students. They will also write the project reports; prepare for project presentations and project inspections.

Career Options & Further Studies

Electronics is one of the world’s largest industries – that means you will enjoy many diverse and exciting career opportunities, such assistant equipment engineer, assistant facility engineer, assistant process engineer and embedded systems engineer.

This diploma is recognised by leading universities both locally and abroad. You may be granted advanced standing or module exemptions when applying for related degree programmes at local universities and overseas universities such as Australia and the United Kingdom.
