In an urban nation like Singapore, civil engineering is critical for achieving and maintaining our economic development and quality of life. Sustained building and infrastructure development within such environments require engineers to possess up-to-date knowledge and skills of the field.

This includes expertise in areas such as structural design, construction methods, and project management, as well as an understanding of emerging trends and technologies.

The SIT Postgraduate Certification in Civil Engineering (PGCert CVE) is designed to equip engineers with specialised technical and practical skills to help the industry address increasingly complex civil engineering problems in a creative and sustainable way.

The modules can be taken individually or stack towards a PGCert CVE, and are each worth 6 European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) credits.
