Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Building Services), MEngTech and BEng (Hons)

Programme Overview
The Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (SIE) (Building Services) programme is developed in consultation with the Building and Construction Authority (BCA), Singapore. The programme encompasses all the necessary engineering disciplines that are required for the building services industries in Singapore. Students will go through rigorous academic training that is conducted by highly qualified professors and senior managers from the industry, and will read modules which are highly relevant to the building services industries.

Curriculum
The SIE (Building Services) programme aims to groom students to be both practice-oriented and industry-ready. Students will be trained in the areas of Efficient Energy Management, Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) and Building Information Modelling (BIM).

One major highlight of the programme is the eight-to 12-month Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) which will equip students with the practical training much desired by employers. During the IWSP, students will be involved in the day-to-day operations and will confront challenges just like an employee of the host organisation.

Students who perform well in the BEng (Hons) programme may proceed to take the Master of Engineering Technology degree (MEngTech) which will have a strong emphasis on human factors, systems engineering and project management.

Students who opt for the MEngTech will also take on a Capstone project formulated on actual working experience during the IWSP. The project may revolve around innovative solutions to existing processes. In line with the government’s initiatives on clean energy and safety at the workplace, students may also be able to obtain professional certifications in Green Mark Certification, Fire Services Safety Management and Workplace Safety and Health.

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

Career Opportunities
Statistics from government agencies and employment trends point to a great demand for graduates trained in building services focusing on green buildings, HVAC and BIM. SIE (Building Services) graduates, well-equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills, will assimilate with ease into the building construction and services industries.

Eligibility and Exemption

Diploma holders from any of the five local polytechnics and A-level graduates are welcome to apply. Students with relevant engineering background ie. Diploma in Aerospace, Mechanical, Mechatronics, Civil, Environmental and Electrical Engineering may apply for exemption of modules up to a maximum of two trimesters. For students with non-relevant engineering background, i.e. Diploma from other engineering disciplines, exemption of modules will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Study Trip

Regional Immersion In Sustainable Engineering (RISE) will create opportunities for you to visit key infrastructure facilities and projects in the region. You 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 is an eye-opener that will enrich students' learning experience.
