The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Electronics and Data Engineering is a four-year direct honours degree programme jointly offered by SIT and Technical University of Munich (TUM).

Combining electronics and data engineering, this unique programme aims to equip students with the necessary skills and competencies for the emerging digital workforce. This programme encompasses a broad-based curriculum which focusses on essential knowledge in semiconductor technology, sensors and related electronics as well as practical applications of data science including aspects of data collection and analytics. Students will learn the fundamental principles necessary for the electronics industry as well as the foundations of data engineering — both built over a structured and rigorous curriculum that includes mathematics, physics, electronics, circuits, programming, databases and algorithms, Internet of Things (IoT), big data theory and practice, machine learning, data mining, and more.

Integrated Work Study Programme

The Integrated Work Study Programme allows students to work full-time in a company for eight months, blending theory and practice to obtain valuable industrial know-how. Students will have the opportunity to work with local or overseas companies that offer exposure to relevant fields such as circuits, systems, products experimentation, data analysis and simulation.

Overseas Immersion Programme

The three-week Overseas Immersion Programme in Germany aims to widen students’ global outlook as they undertake projects in Germany to develop their interpersonal and technical skills while exposing them to current industry challenges. Students may visit the main TUM campus, experience cross-cultural exchanges with German faculty and students, and learn industry best practices through educational site visits.

Eligibility

    Diploma holders from any of the five local polytechnics and A level / IB Diploma graduates are welcome to apply. Applicants with a strong proficiency and interest in Mathematics and Physics are encouraged to apply. Students with other qualifications (completed a formal 12-year education equivalent to A-Levels) are eligible to apply as well.

    Note: These are the required documents (softcopy and hardcopy) which incoming students will be required to submit for the purpose of TUM’s online matriculation in their first year of study:

    • PDF copy of valid passport (personal particulars page only)
    • Recent passport size photo
    • PDF copy of resume/CV
    • PDF copy of the notarised Polytechnic/O and A-level/IB academic documents (final certificate and transcripts)
    • PDF copy of SIT’s Admission Letter

    More details will be shared at the matriculation stage.

    • A Level A/H2 Mathematics, and an A/H2 Science subject (Biology, Chemistry or Physics)
    • Obtained a pass in General Paper or Knowledge & Inquiry in the same sitting, while satisfying Mother Tongue Language (MTL)* requirements.

    In general, applicants presenting Singapore-Cambridge A level results are not required to submit the A level certificates. However, for the SIT-TUM Chemical Engineering and Electronics and Data Engineering programmes, it will be mandatory to submit the O and A level transcripts during application, and the transcripts, School Graduation Certificate, and other documents^ during matriculation. More details will be shared with incoming students.

    *GCE A Level/IB applicants need to fulfil the language requirements as stipulated by the German Higher Education System

    *GCE A Level applicants must have taken two language subjects, out of which one must be at H1 to fulfil the language requirements as stipulated by the German Higher Education System. Applicants who have taken another language subject at H1/H2 or O level (excluding English and English Literature) can also be considered. If you have been exempted from taking MTL for your GCE A Level, you can retake the subject to fulfil the language requirements. For further enquiries on the language requirements, please contact TUM Asia Admission Office at admission@tum-asia.edu.sg.

    Applicants must meet the following requirements:

    1. The IB must be obtained after attending at least twelve uninterrupted (continuous) years of full-time education. The 6 examination subjects taken must conform to IB conditions stipulated by the German Higher Education system:

    • 2 languages at A or B level (one of which at least must be an advanced foreign language studied uninterruptedly as "Language A" or "Language B HL" )
    • 1 Natural Science subject (Biology, Chemistry, Physics)
    • 1 Mathematics subject (Mathematical Methods or Mathematics HL or Further Mathematics together with Mathematics HL)
    • 1 social Science Subject (History, Geography, Economics, Psychology, Philosophy, Social Anthropology, Business and Management, and Global Politics)
    • The 6th compulsory subject may be one of the above or one of the following subjects recognised by the IB: Art/Design, Music, Theatre Arts, Film, Literature and Performance, or another modern foreign language: Latin, Classical Greek, General Chemistry, Applied Chemistry, Environmental Systems, Computer Science, Design Technology, World Religions, Sports exercise and health science.
    • Of the 6 subjects, 3 have to be Higher Level (HL) subjects, and 3 at the Standard Level (SL). The Higher Level (HL) subjects must contain 1 Mathematics subject.
    • All subjects must be taken uninterruptedly (continuously), over two years.

    Candidates have to attain a minimum IB Grade of 4 on the six compulsory subjects. Where an IB grade of 3 is awarded in one subject only, it is possible to compensate for this if another subject taken at the same level has been awarded at least an IB Grade 5, and an aggregate of 24 points has been attained.

    2.  If the conditions according to point 1 are not fulfilled, an additional examination in accordance with the Hochschulzugangsqualifikation* (high school entrance qualification) is required. Recognition as a subject-related University entrance qualification is also possible by a successful university study of one year.

    *IB applicants who do not fulfil the conditions in point 1 may take the “Studienkolleg” for 1 year and write an examination afterwards called “Feststellungsprüfung”. The “Feststellungsprüfung” is in accordance with the “Framework Regulations for Admission to University Education with Foreign Educational Qualifications”, for studying at the “Studienkolleg”. For more information on the “Studienkolleg”, please visit this site.
