From everyday conveniences such as robotic vacuum cleaners, computers and electric cars to industrial technologies such as power distribution, medical instruments and manufacturing, electrical engineers are practically needed everywhere. So if you want to be grounded in one of the most fundamental and flexible engineering fields, the Diploma in Electrical Engineering (EE) will be a wise choice.

In the first two years, you will have a good grasp of electrical and electronic engineering and computing applications. The broad-based foundation will enable you to pursue a wide range of careers. Modules covered include Electrical Technology, Sensors & Instrumentation, Microcontroller & Applications and Digital Systems & Applications.

In your final year, you have the choice of picking one of eight specialisation options. You will also get to put your skills and knowledge into practice with a six-month internship with industry leaders such as ST Electronics, Resorts World Sentosa, SMRT Corporation, Keppel Offshore & Marine, PSA Marine, Surbana International Consultants, ABB, Siemens and Singapore Power. Or you can work on a design project to develop your very own products and patents.

Whatever your choice of specialisation is, the EE courses will open doors to a wide range of careers.

Careers

Electrical engineering graduates in Singapore enjoy one of the highest employment rates and starting salaries. You can also join the electricity consultancy and high-tech manufacturing industries as a sales and marketing engineer, maintenance engineer or facilities executive.
