What You'll Learn

Year 1

  • AC Circuits

    (3 Credit Units)

    This module provides students with basic knowledge of the fundamental principles in electric circuit analysis. The module extends DC network theorems to AC circuits which involve impedances such as capacitance and inductance. The module also includes analysis of simple AC series, parallel and series-parallel combination circuits, concept of AC power and understanding of power factor and its effect on electrical energy usage.

  • Analogue Electronics

    (3 Credit Units)

    The aim of this module is to lay the foundations in analogue electronics. At the end of this module, students will acquire content knowledge and understanding on the basic concepts of analogue electronics and some applications.

    Key topics covered in this module include operating characteristics, working principles and applications of discrete electronic devices such as various types of diodes, MOSFETs and BJTs. Practical circuits will be used to enhance and strengthen the learners’ knowledge so that they will acquire the relevant competencies to move on to more specialized modules.

  • Digital Fundamentals

    (3 Credit Units)

    This module introduces the basic concepts of digital systems. It covers the basics of combinational and sequential logic circuits. Flip-flops and their application in counters and registers will also be discussed. This basic knowledge is essential for students to be able to understand, analyse, and design basic digital circuit system.

  • Engineering Mathematics 2

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module is designed to provide students with the fundamental skills in mathematics required to solve basic engineering problems. Topics are introduced in an order that is intended to keep abreast of the application requirements in engineering modules. The emphasis in each topic is on simple applications and problem solving. Throughout the module, there is appropriate use of a Computer Algebra System. Topics include trigonometry, differentiation and simple integration with applications.

  • Integrated Real-world Project 2

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module aims to integrate the knowledge learnt in the semester and apply to a real-world project and understand the relevance and application of the modules learnt. Students will work in teams and 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.

    This module will also imbue in students a sense of civic consciousness in the context of engineering and society. It serves to create awareness amongst students about the impact of engineering on society in general. In the process it introduces the application of cultural quotient (CQ) skills and mould students’ disposition to understand and collaborate across diverse cultures in real world settings.

  • Communication Essentials^

    (3 Credit Units)
  • Health & Wellness^

    (1 Credit Unit)
^ 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

  • Electrical Installation Design

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module equips students with practical skills to design electrical systems for residential, commercial and industrial installations according to statutory requirements. It covers estimation of load requirements and selection of protection devices, cables and circuit protective conductors.

  • Energy Management Systems

    (4 Credit Units)

    This module covers the working principles and energy management of common electrical and mechanical systems in commercial and industrial enterprises. Students learn how to define energy conservation measures and assess the economic benefits of such measures. They also learn about practical issues in energy management such as improvement in energy utilisation of power distribution system.

  • Integrated Real-world Project 4

    (4 Credit Units)

    Integrated Real-world Project module aims to integrate the knowledge learnt in the semester and apply to a real-world project and further enhanced through relevant contextualisation. Students will work in teams. Upon completion of the module, students will be able to apply the skills and develop confidence in tackling projects

    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.

  • Project Management

    (3 Credit Units)

    This module provides students with an understanding of the various aspects of project management procedures. The module also equips students with various project management tools.

  • Power Electronics

    (3 Credit Units)

    This module provides students with a broad-based understanding of power semiconductor devices and their applications in power conversion circuits. The module also covers basic principles of control and conversion of electrical power for industrial applications and introduces motor drive systems such as variable speed drives.

  • 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.

Year 3

  • 6-Month Internship (Local/Overseas)

    (20 Credit Units)

    Students have the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge acquired in the classroom in a real-life environment via on-the-job training. This programme allows students to hone skills in the areas of problem-solving, interpersonal communications, project planning and implementation, industrial liaisons and character building. Participating companies will have the opportunity to assess prospective employees and secure the services of these students in advance.


  • or
  • Project Design & Development

    (20 Credit Units)

    Students will work full-time on a group project and have the flexibility to choose from a wide range of topics related to system design and integration, research and development, computer applications or other engineering areas. Students are required to carry out research, design, implementation, testing and troubleshooting processes from a prototype to a final product or system under supervision. Students will also learn to apply project management and scheduling skills to enable them to complete their project in time. They will be required to document their project development process and present their projects at regular intervals.


Career Options & Further Studies

With Singapore’s continual investments in the cleantech sector and the push for reduction in carbon emissions, career opportunities in the power and sustainable energy sectors are growing. You can look forward to roles such as assistant engineer, solar PV project development supervisor and technical officer (power distribution systems).
