The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Computer Engineering with a specialisation in intelligent transportation is a two-years-eight-months direct honours degree programme.

Prior to Academic Year 2021, this programme was formerly known as the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Telematics (Intelligent Transportation Systems Engineering).

This programme is the first-of-its-kind that offers interdisciplinary training in computer science and engineering with a special focus on application in the rapidly evolving field of Intelligent Transportation Systems. 

Over the years, Singapore has experienced a digital revolution that has transformed our lives in many ways. As we continue to embrace Smart Nation as the key driver of our economy, we are witnessing a transformation in intelligent transport systems that agglomerates and leverages technologies such Internet of Things, autonomous vehicles, 5G networking and smart traffic systems, among others.

Developed with support from LTA, ST Engineering, NCS and Continental Automotive, this programme will equip you with the knowledge and skill sets in understanding how complex engineering systems such as intelligent transportation could leverage on leading-edge information and communication technologies. Importantly, the programme caters to the ever-growing needs of the local industry for engineers with software development skills to develop smart solutions that run on myriads of devices and systems, ranging from wearables to autonomous vehicles.

To be awarded the Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Engineering, students will be required to complete six trimesters of study and two trimesters of Integrated Work Study Programme.

Trend Antenna
Students will have the opportunity to participate in the Trend Antenna programme developed by Continental Automotive Singapore Pte Ltd. This programme allows students to be at the frontline of cutting-edge technologies and innovation in the automotive industry. Students will be expected to generate new ideas, research about technologies, prototype ideas, as well as develop value chain and possible business models. The innovative ideas from trend antenna may also be used in group design projects or capstone projects.

Integrated Work Study Programme

The Integrated Work Study Programme is held over a span of eight months and provides you with the opportunity to gain industry experience, integrate theory with practice and develop deep specialist skills in your chosen field. You will also be involved in day-to-day operations and confront challenges just like an employee of the host organisation.

Term-In Term-Out (TITO)

The TITO pathway allows students to alternate their time between the university and the workplace every year. At the end of their full-time undergraduate studies, students on this pathway would have spent extended time learning and immersing in authentic industry settings to gain substantial work experience without prolonging the duration of their degree programme. The TITO pathway exemplifies the foundation of our applied learning pedagogy, which is ‘learning by doing’, and we believe that this will give students a stronger head-start to the working world by exposing them to the latest industry developments, business intricacies and work cultures.
