Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Land)

PROGRAMME
OVERVIEW

Singapore Institute of Technology

Master of Engineering Technology & Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Land)

This programme is the first to be launched under Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (SIE). SIE is multi-disciplinary as it synthesizes the essence of several fundamental engineering disciplines. Students will go through a vigorous academic training provided by highly qualified professors while immersing themselves in the land transport industry through work stints with established organisations such as LTA, SMRT, SBS, Keppel Group and Singapore Technologies.

One major highlight will be the Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP), in which students will be involved in day-to-day operations and confront challenges just like an employee of the host organisation.

Students will also have the option to undertake Non-Destructive Testing Level II or III (NDT) certification, (ISO 9712, in collaboration with the Non-Destructive Testing Society of Singapore) so as to enhance their industry-readiness.

Curriculum
The SIE programme aims to groom students to be both practice-oriented and industry ready. Throughout the course of the programme, students will be given the opportunity to take modules such as Total Preventive Maintenance and focus on Railway Engineering, which is not offered by other local undergraduate programmes.  Furthermore, the one-year Integrated Work-Study Programme (IWSP) will help to bridge the gap between academic training and industrial needs.

Students will also take on a Capstone project formulated on actual working experience during the IWSP. This project may focus on improvement to work processes in the company or design of parts and components that add value to the company. In addition, our unique curriculum design allows students to achieve the professional Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) Level II or III certification

Students who perform well in the BEng (Hons) Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering programme may proceed to take the Masters of Engineering Technology degree, provided they meet the necessary requirements.

Accreditation
Accreditation of the programme will be sought with the Engineering Accreditation Board.

Career Opportunities
The SIE’s unique programme and curriculum have been crafted with support from various organisations within the land transport industry such as LTA, SMRT, SBS, Singapore Technologies, Keppel Group and Sembcorp Industries. Students will therefore gain the necessary knowledge and skills for an enriching career in the industry.

Regional Immersion In Sustainable Engineering (RISE) will create opportunities for students to visit key infrastructure facilities and projects in the region. Students will gain first-hand experience in communicating with engineers, designers and operators who are working on various phases of a project such as those in design and construction. The meticulous maintenance schedule that can eliminate any incipient breakdown of the systems will also be explored. RISE will be an eye-opener that will enrich students' learning experiences.
