The Bachelor of Engineering in Mechatronics Systems is a four-year direct honours degree programme jointly offered by SIT and DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore.

Prior to Academic Year 2021, this programme was formerly known as the Bachelor of Engineering in Systems Engineering (ElectroMechanical Systems).

 

The programme encompasses two complementary fields of study, i.e. Mechatronics and Systems Engineering.
Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering that focuses on mechanical engineering, electronics, control and automation, and software technology, in order to design, develop, put into operation and optimise systems. Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary field of engineering and engineering management that focuses on how to design, integrate, and manage complex systems over their life cycles.

Students from this programme will acquire multidisciplinary engineering knowledge while grounded with systems-level engineering management know-how, placing them in a competitive advantage and flexibility to move across industries upon graduation.

The Programme Educational Objectives
The Programme Educational Objectives are closely aligned with the SIT-DNA. Graduates of the programme, after working three to five years, are expected to:

  • Solve complex engineering problems through mechatronics systems engineering and up-to-date technical skills and knowledge.
  • Create innovative systems solutions for a dynamic technological and business environment through critical thinking and lifelong professional development.
  • Function effectively as a leader or member in multidisciplinary teams with effective communication, interpersonal and project management skills.       
  • Discharge their professional responsibilities in serving the community with due consideration of health, safety, societal and environmental aspects.

Curriculum
Traditional approaches to mechatronics 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 and optimising systems from diverse multidisciplinary engineering to produce operational systems throughout their life cycles. Systems engineering enables the development, analysis and management of multidisciplinary mechatronic 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.

Accreditation
Provisional Accreditation of the programme has been granted by the Engineering Accreditation Board.

 

Integrated Work Study Programme

Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) provides students with the opportunity to undertake real work. Held over the span of eight to 12 months, it is designed to be more in-depth than a traditional internship. You will gain real work experience and apply the theories you learn in class with actual practice.

Overseas Immersion Programme

The Overseas Immersion Programme 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.
