The Marine programmes, jointly offered by SIT and Newcastle University, are three-year direct honours degrees in various disciplines within marine technology. Well-grounded with fundamentals in marine and offshore technology, students will hone their critical and analytical skills to be practice -oriented and industry-ready in either one of these specialisations – Marine Engineering, Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering.
Students will go through rigorous academic training and immerse themselves in the marine industry through the Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) with leading marine and offshore engineering organisations such as Keppel O&M Ltd, Sembcorp Marine Ltd, Singapore Technologies Marine Ltd and Wärtsilä Singapore Pte Ltd.
Students will be able to take up modules which are exclusive to these joint degree programmes such as marine classifications, which cover the rules and regulations applied during the design, production and maintenance phases of marine platforms. Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering students will learn about the engineering behind the design, structure, operation and management of ships and other large floating structures. Marine Engineering students will be exposed to marine engineering systems, from the main propulsion engines to auxiliary machinery like power generators, pumps, heat exchangers and other machineries within water, air and hydraulic systems.
Unique And Applied Learning Curricula
The Marine Engineering, Naval Architecture and Offshore Engineering curricula are designed not only to meet the manpower needs of local industries, but also to manifest Singapore’s role as a global marine and offshore engineering centre through SIT’s applied learning emphasis, enabling our graduates to be both practice-oriented and industry-ready.
Extensive Industry Involvement
These programmes include a high level of industry involvement to impart the latest industry best practices and regulatory requirements to students. This community of students, industry leaders and practitioners, professional bodies and dedicated academics brings about a symbiotic relationship beyond the academic level, allowing students to create a network of invaluable contacts within the industry.
Holistic Marine Graduates
Designed with a strong embellishment of the SIT-DNA, the programmes aim to produce socially responsible graduates who understand the environmental impacts within and across various engineering disciplines.
Eligibility and Exemption
Diploma holders from any of the five local polytechnics and A level graduates are welcome to apply.
The Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP), a key differentiating factor from other related degree programmes, will see students undergoing a credited 26-week long full-time work engagement at a company relevant to their area of study. During this period, students will apply the knowledge, practical and professional skills acquired during their earlier years of study in the IWSP. At the same time, students will gain valuable work experience and apply it to a Capstone and/or design project during their penultimate year of study.
Overseas Immersion Programme (OIP)
All students will have to complete a three-week attachment at the home campus of Newcastle University where they get to live and study in Newcastle, United Kingdom. The programme itinerary will include library and career talks, seminars, research and literature review workshops to prepare students for their final-year dissertation projects, as well as visits to companies, museums and key cultural sites.
