Centre for Infrastructure and
Tunnel Engineering 

Building Industry Competency and Competitiveness in Infrastructure and Tunnel Engineering

Established in partnership with Land Transport Authority (LTA), the Centre for Infrastructure and Tunnel Engineering (CITE) will serve as a platform for the civil engineering community to exchange and deepen their knowledge and skill sets in this field. The Centre will also conduct and facilitate applied research to augment safety standards in the design, construction, operation and maintenance of tunnels, and other civil engineering infrastructure. 


What We Do

  • Advance the adoption of technology for transport infrastructure development including both aboveground and underground infrastructural works such as bridges, tunnels, substructures and underground structures in design, construction and maintenance.

  • Uplift knowledge and competencies in civil engineering.

  • Build an ecosystem to nurture young engineers and enable practising engineers to upgrade their skills in transport infrastructure & tunnel engineering.

  • Conferences and seminars to share knowledge and experience
  • Workshops to discuss issues of common interest


Past Events

CITE Industry Engagement Workshop

The first CITE Industry Engagement Workshop was successfully convened on 24 June 2022.

The workshop brings together stakeholders from industry, and agencies to discuss on the key focus areas in the infrastructure and tunnel engineering sector.

The positive synergy between the groups help formulate strategies and set directions for the future in meeting challenges of ever-evolving infrastructure and tunnel developments.
