The Bachelor of Engineering in Sustainable Infrastructure Engineering (Land) is a four-year direct honours degree programme, comprising various fundamental engineering disciplines, such as railway, mechanical, electrical, and electronic engineering.

This programme nurtures individuals to achieve excellence in the ever-changing world of the land transport industry. Students will undergo rigorous academic training provided by highly qualified professors while immersing themselves in the land transport industry through work-study stints with established organisations such as LTA, SMRT, SBS Transit, Singapore Technologies and railway suppliers. 

Students who perform well in the BEng (Hons) programme may proceed to pursue the Master of Engineering Technology (MEngTech) programme. Graduates with MEngTech qualification will be eligible for future registration as a Professional Engineer (PE) (Singapore) or Chartered Engineer (UK and Commonwealth countries). This unique curriculum design also allows students to attain the professional NDT Level II or NDT Level III (Partial) certification.

Integrated Work Study Programme

Integrated Work Study Programme 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 students to visit key infrastructure facilities and projects in the region. Students 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 will be an eye-opener that will enrich students' learning experiences.


Career Options

Graduates can look forward to working in, but not limited to, the following occupational fields: 
SBS Transit
Sembcorp Industries
Keppel Group
Singapore Technologies


Diploma holders from any of the five local polytechnics and A level / IB Diploma graduates are welcome to apply.

Holders of the following BCA Academy Diplomas are eligible to apply:

  • Diploma in Electrical Engineering and Clean Energy
