The Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Robotics Systems is a four-year, direct honours degree programme that focuses on the design and development of service/field robotic systems.

The programme aims to fulfil the anticipated demand for robotics engineers, as automation moves out from the factory shop floor to service their human counterparts in various field applications. The integration of multiple engineering disciplines, via systems engineering through its project-based pedagogy, is a unique feature of the programme. Software and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are used as integrative elements that connect multiple mechatronics elements together to form a complete robotic system.

The Robotics Systems curriculum is centred around the design and development of deployable robotic systems. Robotics modules deal with the actual design and development of mechatronics sub-systems, while systems engineering modules look at the efficient execution of the robotics systems development process. Software development modules integrate software/firmware sub-systems, including artificial intelligence algorithms, to generate intelligent behaviours.

A significant amount of project-based learning activities that connect academic knowledge and skills with real-world applications has been incorporated into the programme. These projects allow students to simultaneously experience systems and software engineering, project management, as well as systemic integration of knowledge from multiple disciplines. The 12-month Integrated Work Study Programme and the capstone project will serve as the culmination and integrative experience of the programme.

Industry Partnership

With the aim of growing graduates highly valued by the industry, a tight nexus has been forged between the curriculum offered by SIT and the specific skills needed by the industry. SIT works closely with our industry partners to ensure our students develop professional competencies through the Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP), industry capstone projects, and applied research projects.

Partnering Siemens Pte Ltd, SIT developed a new degree specialisation in the Robotics Systems programme. The degree specialisation will deepen graduates’ knowledge and skills in Industry 4.0 technologies for the advanced manufacturing sector, such as robotics and artificial intelligence (AI).

Integrated Work Study Programme

Integrated Work Study Programme (IWSP) provides students with the opportunity to undertake real work. Held over the span of 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.
