Overseas study visits, early R&D exposure and attachments at renowned universities and research institutes

Endorsed by EDB and the industry

Prestigious scholarships and talent development programme

You’re interested in engineering applications, but also love the sciences. You’re strong in math and physics. You’re keen to explore scientific research and discover new ways to solve real-world problems. If this describes you, the Diploma in Engineering Science (ES) will be the perfect course for you.

With a curriculum designed in collaboration with Nanyang Technological University (NTU), ES prepares you well for a wide range of careers and degrees in engineering fields such as aerospace, nanotechnology, computer, electrical, electronic and mechanical as well as material science.

During the first two years, you will be equipped with a strong foundation in engineering and related domains such as mathematics, physics, applied science and research. You will attend distinguished guest lectures and go on industry visits. You may also be exposed to short stints with research establishments and institutes such as NTU and A*STAR.

In your second year, you may also get to visit top overseas universities such as Tokyo Metropolitan University (Japan), Tokyo Metropolitan College of Industrial Technology (Japan) and Technische Univeersitat Berlin (Germany). There, you will interact with students and professors, and be exposed to the latest developments in technology and innovation.

In the first semester of your final year, you may spend about 4 days a week in local universities and research institutes where you will be taking final-year projects supervised by professors and researchers. These projects cover a wide range of topics such as aerospace, robotics, biomedical engineering, green energy, laser technology and material science.


If you choose to work, there are good career prospects in areas such as research & development, product design and development, and manufacturing and services. Careers you can pursue include design engineer, software engineer, automation engineer, process engineer, systems engineer and software engineer.

Further studies

Both NTU and NUS have accredited ES for a wide range of their degree programmes.

With your strong foundation as an ES graduate, you can also apply for a wide range of degree programmes offered by overseas universities. For example, overseas universities that offer degrees in engineering science include:

University of Toronto (Canada)

Oxford University (UK)

University of California, Berkeley (USA)

Osaka University (Japan)

University of Hong Kong (China)

About 80% of our graduates were offered admission in various local and overseas universities.
