Systems Engineering (ElectroMechanical Systems), BEng (Hons)

Programme Overview

The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Systems Engineering (ElectroMechanical Systems), also known as SEEMS, is a multidisciplinary degree programme that brings together the fields of mechanical, electrical, electronic, and computer engineering with a holistic approach to system development. Systems engineering focuses on the design, development, implementation, and life-cycle management of complex interconnected systems. The SEEMS programme specifically focuses on the engineering of complex mechanical systems that are controlled by microprocessors and microcontrollers.

Students of this programme will understand the larger context of hardware and software engineering, and will be able to solve complex problems through an integrated and multidisciplinary approach.

SEEMS is a joint degree programme offered by Singapore Institute of Technology and DigiPen Institute of Technology.

Traditional approaches to engineering education focus individually on the different sub-disciplines of mechanical, electrical, electronic or computer engineering. Systems engineering transcends these boundaries and looks at integrating systems from diverse disciplines to produce functionality not achieved by a single discipline. Systems engineering enables the development, analysis and management of multidisciplinary systems with a broad range of applications. Its methodologies address real-world complexities such as uncertainty, constraints, multiple objectives, and interactions among various parts or subsystems that constitute the whole. Trained systems engineers use sophisticated methods to develop and effectively manage engineered systems in today’s complex and interconnected world.

Career Opportunities
Career opportunities in systems engineering are driven by increasing globalisation and technological advancements. As Singapore and the world continue to develop more interconnected devices and systems, the need for engineers with both component- and system-level knowledge will increase dramatically.

SEEMS graduates will be uniquely prepared to address these increasingly complex system design and development tasks. Potential entry-level position titles for new SEEMS graduates include: Systems Engineer, Design Engineer, Quality Control Engineer, Project Engineer, Software Engineer, Software Analyst, Embedded Systems Engineer and ElectroMechanical Engineer. Graduates of this degree programme have the knowledge and skills to pursue careers in industries such as transport, marine, defence and precision engineering.

Eligibility and Exemption

Diploma holders from any of the five local polytechnics and A-Level graduates are welcome to apply. Applicants must complete the application forms online and send in a Personal Statement through the SIT admission portal. Original or notarised copies of all educational records or transcripts must be submitted.

Study Trip

The Overseas Immersion Programme (OIP) is mandatory for SEEMS students. Students will spend one trimester at DigiPen Institute of Technology’s U.S. campus, and attend lectures, labs, and industry seminars. Students will interact with American professors and mentors while experiencing life in a different culture.
