The Bachelor of Engineering in Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Building Services) is a four-year direct honours degree programme developed in consultation with the Building and Construction Authority, Singapore.

The programme provides mechanical engineering training with a focus on the delivery of sustainable buildings to prepare students to become building mechanical engineers. It also develops students’ lifelong skills to ensure they stay relevant in the building services engineering industry in Singapore and beyond. Students will go through rigorous academic training conducted by highly qualified professors and professional officers, as well as a 12-month Integrated Work Study Programme in the industry. SIE (Building Services) students are being trained to be eligible for Professional Engineering (Mechanical) qualification.

Students who perform well in the programme may proceed to pursue the Master of Engineering Technology (MEngTech) programme. Students may also obtain professional certifications in Green Mark Certification, Fire Services Safety Management and Workplace Safety and Health.

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.

Study Trip

Regional Immersion In Sustainable Engineering (RISE) will create opportunities for you to visit key infrastructure facilities and projects in the region. You will gain first-hand experience in communicating with engineers, designers and operators who are working on various phases of a project such as those in design and construction. The meticulous maintenance schedule that can eliminate any incipient breakdown of the systems will also be explored. RISE is an eye-opener that will enrich students' learning experience.

Career Options

  • Design Engineer (with focus on HVAC and other relevant building mechanical engineering areas)
  • BIM Manager
  • Facility Manager (Mechanical)
  • Sustainable Building Consultant
  • Building Construction (Mechanical) Engineer
